Welcome to the Kritamon Restaurant in Archanes, Crete
INSPIRATION LEADS TO CREATION. KNOWLEDGE BECOMES INSPIRATION…
These are the reasons why we created Kritamon restaurant. Kritamon, or Fennel of the Sea, as the Romans called it, is a long forgotten Mediterranean plant with roots in Ancient Greece. It’s name was determined by the similarity of its seeds with barley.
The superb ingredients used to create our menu are primarily from our own organic farm, our beautiful herb garden in our restaurant’s courtyard and wild plants provided directly from nature.
Every ingredient on our menu is produced or collected by us, our family, or local farmers, shepherds, artisan cheese makers, fishers, vintners, olive oil producers, and many other neighbors that are dedicated and passionate about the high quality of their products.
Our homemade pastries and pastas are from generations of family recipes. Our salad dressings and sauces are created with a hint of natural sweeteners such as carob, pomegranate or grape syrup and wild thyme honey.
We have great respect for our culinary heritage and passion to share innovative creations using our island’s magnificent culinary treasures. We welcome you to Kritamon and hope you enjoy your experience.
