Description: Swell Restaurant, the hotel's gastronomic jewel, guided by our young chef, whose inspired creations will give a true Cretan touch and will satisfy all the demanding pallets. You are more than welcome to join us! At Swell we wish to offer our personal interpretation of Cretan gourmet cuisine with an innovative gastronomic touch on traditional cooking methods using only the best products of Crete. We look around Crete to discover tastes and new inspirations to blend them to the menu. Herbs and spices are used in imaginative ways with surprisingly positive results in well-appointed dishes. Enjoy your swimming at the beach, ending your day with a mouthwatering dinner, or just relax at the comfortable couches with your cocktail marveling the deep blue of the Mediterranean sea.

We just came back from Crete, where we have spent a lovely vacation with a group of 15 people.The reason of this visit was to celebrate the 60th birthday of one of us. Before our arrival we coordinated with the hotel manager the reservation of an elegant meal at the Swell Restaurant.
One can put himself totally in the helpful hands of the hotel manager and its staff.The evening was handelled in a most professional way.The tabe was set beautifully, we got the Chambre Separe' so we had our privacy.Sitting on the balcony we could see the magnificent hotel beach, right below.
The food was delicate and sophisticated , yet definitely Greek.
I would recommend highly both for pleasure and bisiness.

Stayed at the all inclusive Arina Sands next door where food was not up to standard. The chef also has a 1 star Michelin restaurant in Athens.

The venue is delightful, the service excellent and the food just what you might expect from such an accomplished chef. We visited 3 times during our stay.

It is not cheap but worth ever cent.

i visited this restaurant several times both for personal and business lunch /and or dinners-
the service is more than excellent with very friendly and professional staff. The food is a sophisticated Greek experience with many fine ideas and taste!
a place to eat either as a romantic couple, with friends to celebrate birhtdays, a wedding, or christening- a place of special moments with special people and SPECIAL TASTE!
