Favourite vegan restaurant so far

I ordered the tofu scramble (super tasty but quite a strong nutritional yeast flavour). I suggested you had some slices of their seeded bread to match it. I also had a coffee with oat milk (was ok) and their lemon tart which was to die for (but like 8€ the slice aie aie aie)! Ended up paying close to 26€ for it all which more like European prices but definitely a high end experience!

The owner is from Belgium and speaks multiple languages. This is the best food I've tried so far as it's organic/ macrobiotic ingredients cooked from fresh and the place has a very nice courtyard and cute dogs. Will be back

Pros: Best quality food , Very nice courtyard, Cute dogs & nice service

Cons: Tofu scramble should have come with bread, A little pricey

First class cuisine!

By far the best vegan restaurant we found on our 10 day visit to South Crete. The food was exceptional and beautifully presented, all at very reasonable prices. A must visit if you’re in the area.

Vegan oasis in Pitsidia

The green Kukunari serves absolutely delicious all vegan food, everything is healthy, creative and prepared with so much love! We are breakfast and dinner there and both were fantastic! Plus, the meal sizes are really big. If in the South of Crete, do not miss to eat there 💚

Sehr gut, wenn auch etwas teuer

Ruhig, in einer kleinen Seitenstraße gelegen, mit einen sehr schönen Innenhof.
Das Essen ist sehr gut und die Gerichte sind liebevoll angerichtet.
Die hier arbeitenden Menschen sind äußerst freundlich.
Die Preise scheinen allerdings etwas hoch.

Pros: Sehr leckeres Essen, Freundliche Menschen, Selbstgemachte Säfte und Smoothies

Cons: Hohe Preise

Best Vegan restaurant I tried so far

I tried this restaurant in my last vacation, and it was the best I tried so far. Very nice and healthy plates, with very original recipies. They used few meat substitutes and a lot of fantasy and passion for the creation of their menu. I really appreciated the low use of oil, and that they do all by themselves, like bread and breadstick. Cheesecake and chocolate energyball were outstanding!

Pros: Friendly staff, Beautiful environment

Lovely food and atmosphere

We came here twice during our Crete trip. The restaurant has a lovely chilled atmosphere in the outdoor courtyard and the food is all delicous. We'd suggest you order multiple starter dishes to share instead of a main dish.

Die ganze Familie hat ihr Lieblingsrestaurant gefunden.
Selbst den Kindern, die oft am Essen mäkeln hat es dort phantastisch geschmeckt.
Wir haben uns quasi durch die ganze Karte durchgegessen und konnten nichts finden, das uns nicht geschmeckt hätte. Wunderschöne Präsentation der Gerichte.
Netter Service. Kleine Oase in einem Innenhof. Mit Liebe und Geschmack gestaltet.
Nicht günstig, aber die Qualität stimmt. Das sieht und schmeckt man einfach.

Pros: Lecker, Gesund, Ansprechend

Cons: Nicht günstig… Qualität stimmt aber

High class dining

You seriously shouldn't come here. I want it completely to myself. This place is like a treasure. It's too good and beautiful ❤️ we could gush about the delicious dishes, the boho romantic enterieur or the charming lady who owns it but instead we highly recommend to come and see for yourself. It's an 11 of 10. Yes, it's expensive compared to other local restaurants but the food is a well-working compensation. Only minus would be the aggressive mosquitoes but that's nobody's fault.

Pros: Vegan high class experience , Dreamy outdoor dining area , Very nice community

Cons: Mosquitoes , Pricey

Happy to be here again!

After 3 years not being able to visit crete we are happy that we could enjoy this delliciouse food again. As mentioned before this is not a place for fast and cheap food but the quality of the food is worth the price. We both had a starter an a main dish wich is enough to be satisfied.

We had the polenta in mushroom sauce which was delicious and the lentil balls with curry.

It was good food, but the portions were so small, that we had to eat again in the apartment. And both dishes cost around 12/13€ …
We were to stingy buying bread for 4,5€ and a water for 3,80€. In most of the Greek restaurants you get it for free. And the appetizer and desserts were so expensive …
The atmosphere is nice and the stuff was friendly. The small shop is really good for shopping some ecofriendly stuff. But all in all we were disappointed about the price-performance Ratio. It seem to be a high priced restaurant for people how don’t know, that you will get in nearly every Greek restaurant some vegan dishes (like fava, baked vegetables, giant beans or aubergine dip)
