"Cretan cuisine is amongst the healthiest cuisines in the world"
Using local homegrown produce, coming from our own private garden, sourcing ingredients only from the best producers on the island and exploiting traditional recipes and culinary techniques, our chef has created a wide number of options for you and your loved ones, expanding from the creative and sophisticated dishes for discerning palates at our fine dining Daphne a la carte Restaurant to the delicious local and Mediterranean dishes of our all-day Argo Restaurant, and of course let’s not leave out our in Villa/Suite private dining options and the delightful lunch choices at the EGVPrivate Beach Club.
Daphne Restaurant, the dining “crown jewel” of our resort, offers a breath-taking view of the magical Gulf of Mirabello and displays an inspired a la carte dinner menu, featuring eye-catching dishes of international fine-dining standards, prepared with love and only the best of ingredients from our gardens and carefully selected local produce.
