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.
