Only a few meters from the seafront, Inodion welcomes you to enjoy bygone and modern recipes from the heart of Eastern Crete.
The seafront tavernas (rakadika) of Sitia have played a vital role in shaping the towns night-and day-life for the many years. Inodion opened in 2005, a family business ran by Dimitris Garefalakis.
Aiming to uphold and promote the local cooking traditions, it offers authentic dishes from Eastern Crete, brought to life with fresh, local ingredients. The barley rusks are baked in an old wood-fired oven and the dishes are cooked with the famed extra virgin olive oil of Sitia.
Visitors can accompany them with a considerable variety of wines or with a glass of our excellent local tsikoudia (raki).
The very essence of Cretan cuisine lies in simplicity and the use of fresh seasonal produce.
The ingredients are combined effortlessly and the result is authentic, imaginative and most of all delicious. At Inodion we use fresh, local products to revive forgotten dishes from East Crete and create new ones, based on our region’s centuries-old cooking traditions.
