Eating

The balcony of the restaurant is a superb place to while away the day enjoying the sun, views & the food.

There is a breakfast buffet (served from 8:00 to 10:30) rich with local flavors. Homemade  marmalade, local honey, freshly baked bread, traditional goat cheeses, fruit, sweets and so much more. As the seasons change Milia embellish its  menu by adding seasonal flavors.

Lunch and dinner are served throughout the day and evening. 

At Milia, you will taste Cretan cuisine at its very best. They cook only with locally grown high quality seasonal produce. Dairy products, Cretan rusk bread, olives, legumes, abundant fresh vegetables, many wild greens, free-range meats, and of course extra virgin olive oil are the basic ingredients of Milia's cuisine.

Milia's cuisine is so humble that it touches the gourmet. 

Wines are also from their local winery. Local bottled wines from other wineries are also available. The local wines of Chania have improved in leaps and bounds in recent decades so they deserve attention! The indigenous “Romaiko” variety of grape - found only in Chania - perfectly accompanies all dishes.

Milia's restaurant is open every day all year round from 12.00am to 21:30pm for all visitors. In July and August the restaurant stays open until 22:30pm.

A word of warning: as everything is grown locally or brought in from Chania, you should give plenty of warning about any special dietary requirements you may have.

Just in case that you decide to eat out .... make it your business to eat only locally grown produce. These are obviously of higher quality, always fresh and there is no added cost of food miles. At the same time you will be supporting local business and the local economy.

For example: you should return if you are ever served pre-cut pre-fried potatoes, pre- packaged honey or marmalade, commercial white bread or olive oil of doubtful quality. Don’t choose cheeses from various places around the globe. Instead choose the different types of Cretan goat cheeses.

Search for places where the locals eat. Look for places off the beaten track, away from mass tourism sites. In the surrounding villages you will find many great taverns. There are also small “kafenia” – traditional simple café/taverns that offer small but tasty dishes (mezedes).
