Restaurants & Bars

When it comes to food and drink, you'll be spoilt for choice. Crete's cuisine is primarily based on the island's own agricultural products.

These locally grown products nourished by the rich soil, the sea breeze of the Aegean Sea and and the bright sunshine, share an unique, full taste. Combined with the almost exclusively organic cultivation of the island, the result is top quality produce from ingredients used to cook the original, tasty and healthy foods you will find at The Island Hotel.

Tuck into buffet-style dining in the main restaurant, The Kitchen. The breakfast spread is particularly good - you can even opt for a full English. Enjoy all-day dining by the pool at two open-air eateries and when the sun goes down, savour a la carte Greek-style cuisine and entertainment in the Taverna, a romantic setting with stone walls and an open roof.

The Stone is contemporary in style, with natural tones running throughout. It offers Mediterranean dishes all day with waiter service. The Veranda restaurant serves a la carte Italian dishes for lunch, and there's a view out over the sea to enjoy too.

Tholos bar offers a variety of cocktails with a terrace and private party lounges and Yachting, an open-air tent-covered deck perched above the seas has been known to be the coolest spot, boasting some of the finest views of the Aegean Sea. With a playful twist on design and an ever-evolving ambiance, Yachting has set a new standard of sound & lighting. Cosy up for sublime cocktails during the warm summer evenings, while a DJ plays his tunes.
