We are writing this while we eat. Last day, best place we have eaten in our 16 day stay all over Crete. Fried cod, spiced cheese, and fried calamari were highlights. Wonderful staff.

Cretan cuisine has a long standing tradition dating back centuries ago and is directly connected to the production of high quality agricultural and cattle farming products. Savor the variety, delicacy and high quality of the guaranteed cuisine of Kastro! We always use extra virgin olive oil, as required by the famous Cretan diet. Our restaurant has been awarded with the label "cretan cuisine" by the Agronutritional Cooperation of the Region of Crete. It therefore, has all the prerequisites that will definitely initiate you to the delicious world of savory experiences, which will absolutely impress you. "Perfect Cretan food in a friendly environment in an idyllic verandah" and "impeccable service by jovial and polite people", are characteristic comments shared in the internet by our visitors. Kastro Restaurant is a first class choice for people relishing a daily excursion and wish to savor high quality traditional cuisine.
