We visited this traditional taverna which is situated in a small village just outside of Chania for lunch on a Tuesday and it was undoubtedly the best meal that we had on our entire holiday. The food was simple, great quality, perfectly cooked, ample portions...More

To Antikristo : Simply put, we prefer highest quality ingredients and home cooking from scratch. Our goal is to support organic production as close as 0km when possible. By now lots of vegetables, herbs, honey, milk products, meat and all sorts of nuts we use are arriving from Western Crete or Sfakia region while we constantly focus on our new neighborhood. Traditional Cretan, Greek and Mediterranean cuisine is where we firmly stand but that does not mean that we will null or ignore facts, norms or standards of today. Flexibility and creativity are very important to us so we use to frequently introduce our own recipes which could nicely and by nature blend with any of cuisines above.
