A quaint garden setting in a restored house on a cobblestone street behind the main square. The talented Chef/Owner named it after the wild seaside herb known commonly as Samphire or Sea Fennel. Local, mostly organic raw materials and the revival of forgotten tastes and products is of paramount importance in his wonderful compilations. The salads are all just heavenly.

In a quite village just south of Heraklio lies this hidden gem of a restaurant. A paradise for foodies like my husband and I. We both have such different palates yet we loved each dish so much that we devoured each one like we had not eaten in years. The wonderful owner and chef Dimitris explained to us that most of the ingredients are retrieved by him from the mountain behind the restaurant. We did not realize how different food could taste if it was fresh, largely unprocessed
and cooked to perfection. We enjoyed it so much that we returned the very next day.The prices are astoundingly low considering the quality of the food but just wait as we are sure that this chef is going to be a big star soon and this hidden gem will be a secret no longer. We feel incredibly lucky to have experienced it when we did.

This restaurant was our surprise during our latest visit to Crete. A Greek myself I am most critical of what my compatriots present as "Greek food". Kritamon rediscovers traditional local recipies, refines them and reinterprets them. Dimitris the chef and his wife Maria pick all herbs and wild salads themselves, some of them on the slopes of the neighbouring Juchta mountain. The menue changes every season and you are sure to find variety of dishes for all tastes. Vegetarians will be happy to know, that there is more than they can eat in the menue. An absolute must if you visit Archanes or if you are just passing by. After all, it is only 30 minutes from Heraklion by car. We were there 3 times in one week and are bound to get back.
