Our Chef Nikos Thomas has recreated the restaurant dishes, completely renewing the hotel cuisine, from breakfast and snacks to lunch and dinner. The award-winning chef was thrilled with the local ingredients, the freshness from the trees, vineyards, indigenous and ancient grains, old and modern varieties of vegetables of our orchard and finally came up with a gourmet concept of the traditional Cretan cuisine.
