Dining & Bars

Thalassi Restaurant

A marriage of Cretan, Mediterranean and International flavors

The main restaurant at Kriti Beach Hotel occupies a large area on the ground floor, and glows with warm invitation to passers-by on Papanastasiou Street. Here, the Chef overindulges guests with a unique marriage of flavors, harmoniously blended to create dishes that are lighter, and more embracing of world cuisine than you will find in any other restaurant in Rethymno.

In full agreement with this love for other cultures, Thalassi surprises its patrons with a different culinary theme every evening, an opportunity for guests to learn the secrets of many divergent styles of cooking practices and traditions.

And finally, nothing quite compares with seeing the Chef and his team preparing mouthwatering dishes on the spot, in the Cooking Show area.

Every day, guests of the Kriti Beach Hotel and drop-in visitors will indulge in a leisurely dining experience, with hot and cold appetizers, soups, sophisticated mains, traditional Cretan selections, fresh homemade desserts, and an outstanding assortment of local and international wines.

Gentlemen are kindly requested to wear long trousers in the hotel restaurants.

Armenistis Bar

Almost, sort of like sailing the Sea of Crete 

Armenistis is the elegant, marine-themed pool bar at Kriti Beach Hotel, a welcoming space, with ample views of the Blue Flag beach across the street, and the Sea of Crete. This is a relaxed area, where classic cocktails come with a dash of adventurousness, and where you can fill your coffee cup as many times as you want during the coffee time in the afternoon.

The à la carte lunch, which courts the carnivore and the oenophile, counts as another reason to linger on this beautiful terrace, by the pool.
