Mouries Restaurant * Cretan Malia Park
Cretan Malia Resort’s heart beats at Mouries Restaurant. Mouria is the Greek word for mulberry tree, a typical of the Greek landscape, the one that is found at almost every village square.

Original clay bowls, rustic kitchenware and old fashion utensils complete the experience. Mouries is also the kingdom of chef Lefteris Iliadis and Panagiota Kabbalou. Apart from the divine dinner, Mouries breakfast is an authentic Cretan experience. Forget pancakes and bacon. Here you will enjoy tiganites and syglino instead. You don’t need to order anything. Just sit at the table and expect a big tray with all the superfoods of Crete to appear in front of you. Then, eggs follow, prepared according to your preferences, while traditional pies keep on coming. A unique experience!
