We were for breakfast in ''Serenissima Restaurant" and we had the opportunity to taste a delicious breakfast. Specifically "Sfakian Pie" was something awesome that I have never eaten before. Also the staff of "Serenissima" was very kind!!!

This restaurant is perfect, probably our best meal in Crete. Very good service, excellent food and wine. We ordered a lot of wine by the glass which added up a little, but otherwise very good value.

Chef Iosif Petroff leads our specialized team in the creation of three set menus centered on quality ingredients. Guests can choose between ‘Earth’, ‘Sea’ and ‘Vegan’ menus or have the option to dine à la carte. Through simplicity and attention to detail, we deliver an elegant, sophisticated and polished dining experience that will satiate and excite every palate. Choose from a selection of wines, local and international, that have been handpicked to best accompany the flavors of our dishes and heighten the meal, with options for every taste. The serene and luxurious setting make for an ideal atmosphere to accommodate guests looking for a romantic dinner, or those hosting a business dinner or event. Chose between a table in the small, picturesque alley in the old harbor where Serenissima Restaurant is located, in the hotel’s stone wall dining room with its comfy leather chairs or on the charming private veranda. It is our pleasure to cater guests’ private dinners, meetings, cocktail parties and special occasions always keeping our high quality standards in focus.
