The taste of Cretan cuisine is our best feature. Our hotel is lucky enough to be situated between some of the best local restaurants and taverns in our region. Quality olive oil and local vegetables along with plenty of meat options and fresh fish. Cretan cuisine never sacrifices its exquisite flavors by overly intricate preparation or excessive spice use but uses spices to superb the already tasteful experiences.
An important delicacy that you have to try is Sfakian pie which may be found all across Crete and go by a variety of names but the original and authentic one can only exist in its birthplace – In Chora Sfakion. Produced from dough that resembles spaghetti and fried rather than baked, which results in a particularly crunchy crust. These are sweet pies with flavors like lemon, cinnamon, honey, and vanilla as well as savory pies with cheese and seasonal vegetable contents. Pies should definitely be tried if they are on the menu as they are an integral part of Cretan cuisine.
Of course, you are encouraged to visit every restaurant and tavern surrounding our hotel and find out why Cretan cuisine is considered as one of the best in the entire world. Unforgettable flavors are offered with recipes dating from our ancestors’ times, keeping the tradition and providing it in today’s standards.
With its abundance of local restaurants and taverns serving up exquisite Cretan cuisine, Sfakia is the perfect destination for those looking to wine and dine amidst stunning scenery.
