    The main ingredients in Cretan cuisine is fresh olive oil, garlic with herbs, vegetables from gardens fish and meat. The simple dishes have often a little bit of oriental scent. Besides known Greek dishes (souflaki, Greek salad, egg plant souffle), they offer people in all restaurants also Cretan specialities.

    The most known are strong lamb, goat or sheep stews and also many other vegetables soups. Very popular are egg plants, tomatoes or paprika filled with rice, grinded meat and fresh herbs. The main Cretan drink is cooled water. They have some good wines that go perfect with their food. Their national Cretan brandy is called tsikoudia – grapeskins brandy, which reminds a little bit on Italian grapes and is similar to strong spirit made from grapes.
