Named after a plant that grows in the sand and is used in salads, Kritamon is located in Kondylaki street in Chania’s old town. It is a wine bar/ restaurant with an adjacent organic store, with clean and minimal design. To be honest, the design caught my attention as we passed by and prompted me to check out their menu as well. We already had lunch that day, so we made a mental note and decided to return the next one.
And that’s what we did! On our last day in Chania, after walking one last time around the city, we made our way to Kritamon and sat on a table in the back porch. As you can see from my photos the place is very chill and serene.

We started off our lunch with a green salad with octopus and gruel followed by small pies with phyllo dough filled with avocado and accompanied by tomato marmalade. These where delicious and would like to try and recreate them at home (but I’m sure I won’t be that successful)! For main course my husband got a risotto with mushrooms and I got salmon with almond crust accompanied by grated carrot and zucchini.
Needless to say we were stuffed, but content! My husband proclaimed that it was the best risotto he had tried in a long time. Before leaving we were offered sweet white wine and a small pot of yogurt with caramel.
