In the evening you can look forward to an incredibly delicious Greek menu, which also caters to vegan and vegetarian palates. All dishes are freshly prepared for us with a lot of love from regional and seasonal products, most of which are grown in the own garden and freshly harvested by the chefs. You can taste so much sun and love! Look forward to pure enjoyment!

Restaurants & Bars

Cuisine is at the heart of the Cretan way of life - a fact recognized by UNESCO as a cultural heritage. As such, the culinary identity of Crete is woven into Cretan Malia Park's dining offering. There is something for every taste in the large selection of restaurants and bars.

Offering traditional Cretan cuisine in a cozy courtyard shaded by lush mulberry trees, the "Mouries" pays homage to Crete's most time-honored recipes with an authentic menu created by Chef Lefteris Iliadis. The focus is on seasonal vegetables from the hotel's own garden, wild herbs, high-quality meat and seafood, and olive oil. Dishes are honest and simple, prepared over an open fire in the central outdoor "Parastia" style kitchen, without the use of electricity, solely on an outdoor stone oven and grill.

In the Mediterranean restaurant "Almyra" you can experience a culinary journey to Italy. Overlooking the sea, the restaurant presents a menu by chef Athinagoras Kostakos, where Italian dishes incorporate locally and sustainably sourced ingredients. Dishes such as fresh fish, summer salads, pasta, risotti and a dozen pizzas from the outdoor stone oven await you. Meals are rounded off with an array of sweet treats including a decadent pavlova served with meringue, vanilla ice cream and red fruit, and the chocolate mousse; an excellent mixture of feuilletine, praline and coconut crumble.

At the brand new restaurant "MEZZE", Chef Athinagoras Kostakos introduces a vibrant concept and a menu inspired by the Levant. Shared plates on large trays will enchant you with fresh herbs and spices, many different types of nuts as well as beans, vegetables and lots of lemon zest. We welcome you in a beautiful outdoor area by the pool with Mediterranean style decoration, comfortable lounges and a large communal table around an open kitchen that fills the air with an enticing scent.

The "Mediterraneo" offers all day Mediterranean buffets for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The varied menu includes ingredients from the hotel's own organic gardens and a selection of island specialties and ingredients, with a strong focus on Greek recipes.

 

 

In the "Melissi" bar, a relaxed, timeless energy is the key ingredient. From award-winning bartender Aristotelis Papadopoulos' creative, handcrafted cocktails, blended with local, quality ingredients, to a wine list that focuses on Greek wineries.

The "Beach Shack" is a simple beach bar, in the middle of the sandy beach. A cool and casual counterbalance to the more formal dining options at Malia Park. Here you can enjoy healthy bowls for lunch, light menus and delicious cocktails for dinner.

Tucked away in lush green gardens, the traditional "Kafenio" is small and lively, nestled against stone walls, traditional wooden chairs, rustic ambience and a simple coffee menu, delicious local desserts and great Tsikoudia - all prepared with love and care.⁠

The perfect escape from Crete's soaring summer temperatures, "The Crush" offers gelato to go.

Cretan Malia Park

Proud of the vibrant culture of Crete, surrounded by an idyllic garden, Cretan Malia Park presents a sanctuary of Greek identity in every sense, and welcomes you to immerse yourself in it. With a slow-paced aura attuned to the pace of the island and an authentic Cretan culinary experience, Cretan Malia Park is a microcosm of the island, inviting you to explore and enjoy.
