Going abroad with children can be difficult, particularly if they miss their favourite foods from home. Luckily, Cretan cuisine offers some of the tastiest, healthiest food in the world, ensuring that nobody avoids the dinner table for too long!
Cretan food is as child-friendly as Cretan culture, with young guests joining the adults for all meals. Even very young children will stay up late for dinner with the family, which often doesn’t begin until past 9pm in the hot summer months. Almost all Greek restaurants and tavernas welcome children, but don’t expect a kids menu – Greek children just eat smaller portions of the adult dishes!
Set in a dazzling seafront location, Candia Park village takes guests of all ages on a unique culinary journey through the intricacies of traditional Cretan cuisine. Families are invited to treat their tastebuds to a range of classic Greek dishes including moussaka, gyros and pastitsio, with fresh ingredients and top quality produce always on the menu.
At Candia Park village, one of the best family hotels in Crete, guests have the opportunity to taste a wide range of traditional Cretan flavours throughout the day. The “Agapi” main restaurant serves an extensive buffet dinner, introducing visitors to local tastes whilst the weekly Cretan evenings feature live music and dancing. For lunch, the “To Fili” Taverna has an exceptional menu featuring speciality dishes – perfect for light lunches with friends and family. Meanwhile, at the traditional Greek Kafeneion in Agios Nikolaos Crete, adults can enjoy a strong Cretan raki or ouzo whilst children tuck into a platter of traditional mezze – the perfect evening snack.
