Local Cuisine

The Cretan diet is a slight spin-off of the traditional Greek diet. Vegetables, legumes, plenty of fish, and virgin olive oil are the cornerstone of every meal. As a one-time major trade route between the Middle East, Africa, and the rest of Europe, culinary influences from across the globe can be traced all the way to the flavorful local dishes. Expand your horizons while on your holidays in Crete with an immersive gastronomic experience comprised of time-honored traditional dishes unique to the area, including "Chochlioi boubouristi" (friend snails), "Lamb with stamnagathi" (wild chicory), "Askordoulakous" (wild onion bulbs), "Ntakos" (rusk bread, tomatoes, myzíthra cheese, olive oil), "Sfakianes pites" (flatbread pies with feta cheese & honey), and "Dolmades" (stuffed grape leaves with rice and fresh herbs).
