LithosRestaurant

Authentic taste of Crete

What do the Venetians and the Cretans have in common? The town of Chania. A magical blend of cultures which come together with respect to the elements that each one brings, creating an unforgettable experience.

Venetians designed the scenery and Cretans brought the flavors. Extra virgin olive oil, pure ingredients which are locally produced, fresh fish, vivid vegetables and Greek wines, wait for you to taste them.

Nevertheless “Lithos” has more to offer to a traveler. From the welcoming atmosphere to the hospitable locals, “Lithos” keeps the tradition even for the basics. Crete is famous for its friendly people who genially respect the visitors treating them as part of their family and this is exactly what we aim to accomplish. A restaurant so graceful that you will feel like home.

But what does “Lithos” mean? Lithos in Greek means stone and the restaurant took its name from the stones that were built on. These stones were part of a castle wall, built on the 16th century around the city to protect the island from the pirates.
Concluding, what makes “Lithos” different and a must destination? History, tradition, local flavors and aromas, fine drinks, hospitality and a panoramic view of the harbor. Authentic dishes with the Venetian finesse.
