Description: Kapetan Dimitris open in May 2010 ...The cuisine is Cretan tradition with a modern twist....Old Cretan recipes transform to a new fresh recipe full of flavor using the best local ingredients presented in a more appealing way.....menu changes every two days to make sure that food is always fresh and has not been left over the fridge for days.....we also offer a variety of the Best Cretan wines but also from the rest of Greece......

This is wonderful family run restaurant which serves the best ever grilled octopus, fennel pie, fresh squid, lamb Stifado and an amazing tzatziki. Dimitris and his wife are very welcoming, friendly and full of knowledge. Nothing is too much for them. Please give this restaurant a try to experience what we have. We have eaten in there many times and dimitris still amazes us.

Service is welcoming and efficient. Greek food can get boring so the Greek dishes with 'a twist ' are a welcome change. Starters are imaginative variations on traditional dishes and are often more interesting. The wine is much better than you get elsewhere in Paleohora. Prices are slightly higher than other places but it is worth it. Recommended.

Delightful meal. Great attention from our waiter & Demetrios. We ordered kalimari starter and then pork in orange sauce to split between two. We have been traveling Greece for a month & this was a wonderful refreshing turn on the local food we always order.

Kapetan Dimitri's is a very special dining experience. Dimitri and Ellie are delightful and helpful hosts, very knowledgable about their food and always happy to advise and inform. Their house wines are exceptionally good and locally sourced. The starters and light bites are varied and the salads different and delicious. Lots of vegetarian options. Highly recommend it and you get to enjoy the glorious sea view.

Excellent restaurant on the stony beach side of Paleochora. Starched white tablecloths (not paper) and a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere. The food is outstanding and very high quality, with the menu changed regularly. Dimitris and his staff are attentive, friendly and keen to ensure their customers are totally happy with their food. They are happy to suggest alternative options. Return visitors are welcomed like old friends. We will certainly be heading straight for Kapetan Dimitris when we return to Paleochora in October.
