There are some "secret" places in Crete that they are known just from the locals and of course now ... for our good friends of CreteTravel.com family.
Dounias eatery located in a village on the foot of the unspoiled White Mountains of Chania, at 600 metres altitude, the traditional taverna is a centre of gastronomy and slow food.
The famous Cretan diet, long-known for its health-giving properties, is followed to the letter by the owner Stelios Trilirakis, who uses only locally produced raw materials (vegetables etc.) and cooks in wood stoves, yes you can see them.
Vegetables, fruits, olives and the virgin olive oil come from the family’s groves, and meat and poultry are sourced from their own farm. Herbs such as oregano, dittany and chamomile are picked from nearby slopes of White Mountains, giving a special aroma to traditional dishes such as Greek salad, rabbit casseroles, lamb with honey and meat dishes with pilaf rice.
Dounias has been awarded with the Quality Label of Cretan Cuisine.
