Served in the Club House Restaurant indoors or on the sea-view terrace, breakfast is an exorbitant feast. Guests can either sit on the terrace overlooking the sea or inside where all the food is presented on 12 long tables beautifully set with fine linen table cloths. The buffet is laden with countless classic Cretan and international dishes which delight the senses. Ten hot servers for meats and cheese pies form part of this fabulous morning feast.

You have the choice of Gluten free and lactose intolerance dishes as part of their health-conscious cuisine. Meat, fresh fruit, Cretan cheeses, cereals, a yummy creamy vanilla pudding, and the list goes on. Cretan olives – five different kinds, including Tsakistes and Throubes were a delight to sample as was the smoked pork. Figs, dates, all kinds of dried fruit, even goji berries. Jams, purees, Greek marmalades – home-made of course – like everything else – decks out more banquet tables. Incredible Cretan creamy desserts and strudels to satisfy the sweet tooth have tongue-watering palette appeal. Typically, they have their own table, and it’s a popular one! You can enjoy all this, and also order from the à la carte menu which offers omelettes, crepes, pancakes and more yummy morning goodies?
