If you like, you can eat all your meals at Ammos.
Ammos has a great kitchen that cooks everything fresh from locally sourced ingredients. The regular menu of simple Greek fare is outstanding, and with daily specials written on the notice board each morning, you can dream about your next meal as you lay in the sun.
Even the wine is sourced from a nearby winery, and Nikos can arrange a tour for an afternoon excursion.
A signature and elegantly presented buffet breakfast (optional, no need to pre-book but highly recommended) featuring many Cretan and international delicacies with extra charge as breakfast is not included in room price.
You can spend a week here and still not try everything: spinach pie, orange cake, homemade granola, Cretan cookies, seasonal fruits and creamy Greek yoghurt swirled with thyme honey.
Ammos Breakfast: yogurt, honey, muesli, homemade jam, variety of fresh seasonal fruits and vegetables, several types of home-made cakes (orange, banana and lemon) and pies (spinach, cheese), cookies, local sweet/savoury pastries, salads, breads, Cretan dakos (barley rusk topped with grated tomato and mizithra goat cheese), variety of local cheeses, hard boiled eggs, freshly squeezed orange juice, coffee/tea of your choice (including cinnamon & aloe vera iced tea and organic green iced tea) and more. Supplementery eggs of your choice an additional 3 euros.
Breakfast served daily from 8.15 to 11.30.
Good life continues after breakfast. Ammos Hotel provides a restaurant that remains open the whole day offering all the meals, using local first quality's products. The restaurant is located right on the beach, just at the perfect place to enjoy your dinner facing the sunset.
Simplicity, freshness, seasonal ingredients brought from local markets (organic where available), old fashioned Cretan and Greek recipes with a rediscovered homey touch, unpretentious but smart presentation, friendly prices and service with a smile. Highly suggested the roast lamb with fennel, artichoke hearts with broad beans, grilled snapper with potatoes, marathopites, papoutsakia, marinated achovies, ntolmadakia with herbs and rice and more. The menu is reassuringly small (it keeps it "fresh"), but there was always at least one vegetarian option.
The London Times food critic, Alex Renton, who visited in April 2012, was so impressed that he hailed the hotel as a "known foodie destination".
Setting is simply unbeatable: Stunning interiors and a balcony and terrace looking out right on the beach front (food and drinks are accompanied by the sounds of the sea and dramatic sunsets).
Info: Kitchen stays open all day long. It starts early in the morning with its signature buffet breakfast and ti continues serving till late into the night (the restaurant also caters for Ammos guests at the pool and beach area).
If you are looking for more variety, ask Nikos to book you a taxi into Chania’s old town. Here you’ll find atmospheric or even traditional tavernas and reastauarants.
