We spent 3 days here at Kyrimai and had the opportunity to try the hotel’s cuisine.
BREAKFAST: Normally it is taken at the terrace next to the pool with sounds of the water lapping against the rocky coast below. It is served right to the table, different every day and the variety is rich. It includes homemade pies, breads and cookies, cakes, variety of homemade jams, omelettes, cheese and ham, coffee and the freshest ever orange juice, enough to fill you up for hours. The way breakfast is presented in a huge crystal or porcelain platter counts a lot!
The restaurant of Kyrimai can easily be compared to Top Gourmet restaurants of Athens.
We had dinner here both the two nights and I found it excellent in every way and enjoyed its culinary creations.
Under the supervision and guidance of Michelin starred Chef Yianni Baksevani the restaurant has been highly upgraded. Traditional Greek dishes are presented in a modern innovative twist. The terrace by the water is the perfect setting for romantic candlelit dinners under the stars.
Guests can enjoy their dinners also at the dining room which is just as chic and romantic as outdoors. Matina will surely advice you with her expertise knowledge to choose the right wine from the long wine list.
Elena, the top Supervisor Chef in the kitchen these days is an asset to Kirimai. She surprised us happily with her mouthwatering and exquisite dishes. Both nights the dishes we had were superb.
MENU: Salads are between €10 - €13.Try the Spinach salad and vegetable Spring rolls -simply amazing!
I highly recommend that you try “Fava” with chopped octopus pine nuts, raisins & caramelized pumpkin. It is delicious!
If you are after vegetables don’t miss trying the Caramelized filled aubergine ....it is out of this world in taste and presentation. If you don’t find it on the list ask for it. It was my best dish.
The Small pies stuffed with cream cheese & rose jam €10.00 were also good.
Finally another excellent and very delicious dish that I loved was the local pasta made of carob syrup. It comes with fish of the day or prawns. I forgot exactly how it appears on the menu list. -€18
The Wine list includes some of the best local labels ranking from €17.00 to €45.00.
SNACK MENU: I found it quite economic.
There are two types of salad. The traditional Greek with feta cheese balls and black sesame is the one and the second is the Mixed green salad with fresh fruit and honey vinaigrette. Both cost €8.00
The other option is the Trilogy of Greek dips for €5.50.
Fried local shrimps on fish roe mousse and small herb salad at €10
Souvlaki (kebab) on a pita bread with sliced tomato, onion and tzatziki served with fries cost €9.00.
Fried calamari with smoked aubergine salad €9.50.
There is of course the Dish of the Day which you can ask for.
Desserts vary between €6.00 and €8.00
I tried Baklava with fresh & dry fruit & vanilla ice cream -it was too sweet for my taste but my husband loved it.
We also tried the Cream cheese flavored with mint & jam, but we preferred more the Meringues with warm fruit salad and ice cream.
Fresh fruit served with ice cream cost €6.00
TIP: Guests should have in mind that service in the restaurant can be a bit slow, however the food is definitely worth the wait.
