Eating & drinkingEating & drinking

The Cretans are mad about lamb and goat. Their ‘ofto lam’ and ‘psito’ are well-known. The island is especially famous for its dairy products. Kefalograviera, the semi-hard kefalotyri, Anthotyro and the soft mizythra are all tasty and belong to the best of the Greek cheeses.


For a special meal in a splendid terrace garden or in the antique dining room, Loukoulos offers interesting Mediterranean dishes with a Greek touch and fine attractive salads.
