Dining guide for Agios Nikolaos

Local Cuisine

In Agios Nikolaos you will have the chance to taste the delicious and healthy Cretan cuisine. In most dishes Cretans use locally produced vegetables, dairy products, fish and of course excellent olive oil. Try many different kinds of starters ("mezedes") including various salads, pies of all kinds, and vegetables cooked in many different ways, olive pate, sun dried tomatoes and of course "dakos". Fish and shellfish are usually fresh, but you should be careful when selecting it. Don’t forget to taste local, traditional cheese like myzithra, anthotyro and graviera and accompany your food with Cretan wine or traditional arrack ("tsikoudia" or "raki"). Greek yoghurt topped with pure honey is a luscious, yet healthy desert.
