Eating

A traditional Cretan breakfast is served in the restaurant but of course you enjoy that outside in lovely terrace, as late (or early) as you'd like (just advice Jo!).

A big wooden table is full with a great selection of local home made pies and cakes, nuts and Greek yogurt, nice bread and cereals, Cretan honey marmalade, local cheeses, variety of healty breads and paximadia, delicious biscuits and cereals, fresh fruits (many from Elia's gardens) and all washed down with freshly squeezed orange juice.

Guest are free to take their breakfast anywhere they wish in the gorgeous grounds, and for those who like their sleep, they will serve you when you wake up - whatever the time!

For lunch you can order some light dishes like salads, sandwiches and typical Cretan dakos (crunchy rye bread with chopped tomatoes, feta cheese, topped with oregano and olive oil). For dinner you can have excellent home-cooked meals, but you have to order it in the morning. If on your day of arrival you’d like to have dinner at the guesthouse, it is best to call the guesthouse a day in advance to let them know (though usually they will make sure there's dinner for arriving guests anyway).

There’s only one choice of evening meal (three course meal - though you can actually eat any course you like) – you’ll see this dish of the day chalked up on a board at the entrance. You can dine in the traditional little restaurant, or on the raised terrace looking out to the bay of Kolimbari.... serenaded by the romantic throb of frogs croaking in nearby ponds. Elia's Chef is renowned for his hearty dishes - many secrets recipes of his grandmother - and he uses only the finest locally sourced ingredients, the food is simple but copious- everything cooked fresh every day.
