Our Tastes

Our Tastes

Cretan cuisine is an organic part of the island’s culture and a fundamental element of our philosophy and hospitality. At st TEN Stone Built Village we cook traditionally, with ingredients from our orchards and gardens and from cooperating local producers. We source meats from farmers who graze their herds in the Asterousia Mountains and cheeses from nearby family-owned dairies. The large plain of Messara supplies us with olive oil and olives (it is the largest olive grove in Crete), while its fertile soil also supports vines, vegetables and citrus fruits.

Our Slow Breakfast

We start the day with yeast bread, warm from the wood-fired oven, fresh eggs from our hens, fruit from our orchard and vegetables from our garden. The handmade breakfast buffet never lacks traditional cheese and vegetable pies, milk, butter and local cheeses, as well as seasonal delicacies from selected local producers.

*Breakfast is served daily at the Pool Bar Restaurant, next to the pool, from 08:00 to 10:30. Please let us know of any allergies or special dietary preferences so that we can adjust your breakfast accordingly.

Our Delicious Snacks

Throughout the day we serve fresh salads with vegetables from our garden, fruit salads with fresh seasonal fruits, local cheeses and cold cuts and light snacks, which guests of st TEN Stone Built Village can enjoy in the Pool Bar Restaurant or in their rooms.

*The All Day Menu is available from 12:00 to 20:00.

Our Mama’s Cooking 

Every lunchtime, the guests of st TEN Stone Built Village have the opportunity to taste food from the hands of our family’s mother. Two or three different dishes of the day, stewed or grilled, in the oven or in the wood-fired oven (depending on inspiration and mood), selected from her recipes and the local or wider Cretan cuisine, will offer those who try them a – literally – home cooking experience.

*Our main dishes are served daily, at the Pool Bar Restaurant, from 14:00 to 19:00. Room Service is offered. Let us know about allergies and special dietary preferences.Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, cons ectetuer
