Welcome to Meltemi Restaurant
The Meltemi family restaurant in Lentas was founded in 1999 and is one of the oldest restaurants in the Lentas region. It was Grandpa Mihalis who first started in his wife’s father’s first café / tavern in Lentas – where he served his wife’s traditional Cretan recipes taught by her mother. With love and devotion Grandma Maria and Grandpa Michalis continued their journey later in the beach restaurant. By playing the traditional Cretan lyre and serving it in the traditional way, they made friends from all over the world. Today our restaurant continues to serve traditional Cretan dishes with extra virgin olive oil and fresh ingredients from all over the region. Enjoy your meal!
We wish you a pleasant stay in our Restaurant in Lentas. Enjoy the excellent food cookedwith Cretan Olive Oil and the good cretan wines.

You can enjoy your coffee as well as your breakfast right next to the sea. We suggest you to try the Fredo Cappuccino, the refreshing drink of the Summer.
The restaurant is open at 8 o’clock in the morning for breakfast and coffee. At noon we are starting to serve the fresh food of the day with focus on the Cretan cuisine.
