The Greek cuisine is worldwide famous for its fine products, its superfoods and its unique preparation.

However, there are some destinations, where you will have an unforgettable yet affordable culinary experience. Be prepared for the best taste vacations ever!


Crete

Cretan cuisine is distinguished and traditional. It is tasty, creative and includes a variety of dishes, made from pure products of the blessed Cretan earth. Fried snails, cheese pies, dakos (salad with barley rusks, tomato, feta cheese, olives, caper, oregano and olive oil), lamb with the wild green of Crete, stamnagathi, and gamopilafo, risotto with meat, lemon juice and butter from goat's milk are only some of the dishes you will eat in Crete.


Athens

Athens is not famous for its own creative cuisine, like Crete or Naxos, but, as a huge city, it offers you many places to eat very good and affordable lunch and dinner. Luxury restaurants of every cuisine you can imagine, numerous quality taverns and street food for every taste are waiting for you at very reasonable prices.

Thessaloniki

Thessaloniki is considered to be the best large city to relax in its taverns, eat appetisers, drink wine or ouzo and admire the view of the sea. The first residents of Thessaloniki were refugees from Istanbul and Asia Minor, and they brought in their new home the oriental tradition, which created a unique cuisine.

Naxos

The cuisine of Naxos will travel you in a gastronomic paradise. In the local dishes of the coastal regions fish and seafood are prevailing. In the cuisine of the plains, vegetable and cattle dishes have a leading role, while in the mountainous villages, goat and sheep dishes constitute the Naxian cuisine. Among the best savoury dishes are patoudo, which is stuffed lamb, koukoulomaeria (soup with beans), pig rosto and sefoukloti (sweet-savoury pie). Among the best local products you can try and buy in Naxos, are the Naxian potatoes, the sweet tomato, the dairy products, such as graviera or xinotyro cheese, and the citron liqueur.


Mykonos

The culinary culture of Mykonos is something more than its traditional products, like kopanisti cheese or louza sausage. Of course, you can taste the fine local products and delicacies in Mykonos, but the most amazing thing is that on this island, you can eat in some of the best luxury restaurants in Europe if not worldwide. Chinese, French, Argentinean, Japanese, Italian and Mediterranean food from internationally popular chefs waits the food lovers of all kinds.

Santorini

The tasteful cuisine and products of Santorini have a special characteristic. They come from the volcanic earth of Santorini that gives them an extraordinary taste and aroma. Fava, small tomatoes, wine and white aubergines have their own varieties in Santorini that will impress you.
