Scents of Crete and Greek flavours
We focus on choosing the right, pure and fresh local ingredients - some of which of our own produce - and be loyal to a traditional way of cooking - certainly without the use of microwaves! All desserts, sauces and creams are prepared in our kitchen only using selected and pure ingredients.
Our fish and meat are only fresh. For cooking we use virgin olive oil of our own production.

Our bread is home made traditionally with barley and groats and is baked daily in our wood oven.
