Fodor's Expert Review Dounias

$ Chania Greek Fodor's Choice
On a mountain perch above Chania is one of the most singular restaurants in the whole of Crete. A holistic approach is taken–-this is farm-to-table eating but ramped up to the nth degree. Your meal is cooked in traditional clay pots that sit over the wood fire, as they have no electricity in the kitchen. Ingredients come from the family farm and they produce everything in-house, organically, of course–-only the salt comes from the coast 20 km away. There is no menu, merely what is in season that day, but all tastes are catered for by the friendly staff. It's not fancy, nor is it fast, but it is honest and truly memorable.
