The cuisine of Nereas Restaurant is based on traditional Cretan recipes and old flavours, presented in a new, contemporary look. It is based on the use of locally and ethically sourced food and ingredients, a good part of which are organically grown and produced on the farm of the owner of the Restaurant by the owner himself.

Our Philosophy: Earthly Harmony
Our philosophy is based on our aim to create a prototype organic farmland characterized by harmony at all levels. We do not wish to adopt the dominant logic of our times, which fosters the stark exploitation of nature for financial profit. In our view, profit and payoff are defined as the restoration of the logic of harmony in nature, freeing our land, our natural resources and their products from pesticides and fertilizers.
