Description: CRETAN DIET- Recipes for Living The excellent health and longevity of Cretans is attributed to their traditional diet. Crete is famous for its rich agricultural production and excellent quality of its products. Local preparations, home dishes and wines have built a name for Crete, while the descriptive term "Cretan Diet" has been the standard for the Mediterranean Diet. MEDITERRANEAN CUISINE The word "Gastronomy" was born in Greece. It grew up in France - Italy until Spain also adopted it. In a few time it was worshiped worldwide. Kymata Restaurant follows the trends of gastronomy & present you the "Sous-Vide" cooking method! SUSHI - The Bridge over the waves of taste Sushi is based on the fresh daily obtained seafood from the Cretan high sea's. It is Highly nutritional & contributes to longevity. The combination of Japanese-Mediterranean cuisine is a suggestion that will surely gain your enthusiasm. VINOTHEQUE The best Greek wines to accompany your meals. Wine is part of the Cretan culture. The traditional way of living on the island pairs wine with lunch or dinner. This association has roots in antiquity, when a chunk of bread dipped in a cup of red wine was considered excellent breakfast. Cretans never drink alone. Wine is an occasion for companionship and socializing. Cretans drink within a group of people who share a meal, talk and have fun - this is because the Cretan diet is a way of life. Modern wine industries on Crete have exploited traditional grape varieties, past experience and the accumulated knowledge on viticulture and wine making. At Kymata Restaurant you will come across to rare Greek wines, that you will be able to purchase as a present or for your own pleasure at home. ATMOSPHERE - MUSIC A dinner over the sea under the moonlight is surely a unique experience and along with a finely selected music ,it will make it memorable. VALUE FOR MONEY There is no economical - expensive meal: we highly respect your money ,therefore we grant you V for M.

Kymata restaurant stands out from the typical touristic 'frozen' seafood restaurants on the beach or walking street of Hersonissos! We were very attracted by the very stylish interior. However, at the same time the design is very cosy and easygoing. I mean you will feel comfortable there wearing your slippers as well as a cocktail dress.

Anyways, that is not the main thing. The main thing is food. U will find anything for ur taste! Meat, seafood, pasta!!!! Regarding deserts- I will better keep my mouth closed! It is too tasty to be true! I have no idea what they do with food, but It is super- mega- tasty. And what is important ( good nes for sushi lovers)-they have the best sushi on Crete! If u have ever been to Greece, you definitely know, that it is kinda hard to find sushi here, and especially good sushi.

Another important point is the service. To our surprise the waiters were there, when we needed them, and disappeared exactly when should have to. Recommendations regarding wines were very appropriate.

Besides that we could really feel the Greek hospitality there! Staff as well as owners themself are so friendly and hospitable, food is so tasty, that u want to come back there again and again!

So if u will be in Hersonissos-Kymata is a must!

Kymata has a nice offer in Sushi, Sashimi, Maki and California Rolls. The best we ever found on Crete. If you want this quality in Greece, you have to go to Athens!
We stayed two nights in Chersonissos and both nights we ate here. The first night we went for sushi and we loved it very much. The second night we ate an excellent Tagliata (!!) and delicious Lamb Chops. For starters we had Smoked Salmon, very nice. It's really great that the cook tries to give some classic dishes a different twist. A creative cook is hard to find in Crete.

Their wines are great. A bit more expensive than you are used to in Crete, but worth the extra money. Life is too short to drink bad wine ;-)

This must be one of the better restaurants in Chersonissos. If you like Sushi there is no other option.
