AMPELES tavern is located next to the apartments by the main road Zakros – Kato Zakros, in an excellent position within the wild Cretan countryside, offering spectacular view of the Kato Zakros bay.
We offer unique traditional Cretan cuisine with homemade products.
All the fruit, vegetables, cheese, meat and olive oil we offer in our restaurant are our own products. At the same time you can taste fresh fish from the seas of Kato Zakros, which we fish ourselves!
Crete has one of the oldest and most beloved gastronomic traditions in the world. Flavors, aromas and ingredients originating in the prehistoric years have blended with skills acquired through decades of practice to present us today with what is found to be one of the healthiest diets worldwide.
The tavern and the rooms-apartments have their own wood-burning oven used for the making of bread and other special delicacies in the traditional Cretan way.
We are waiting for you to visit us and taste the unique flavours of the Cretan countryside.
