Under new management since 2011, Kapetan Dimitrios creates traditional Cretan cuisine with modern Mediterranean influences. The stunning sea view restaurant provides a great selection of vegetarian dishes, grilled meats, daily fresh fish and a fine selection of wines. With excellent service catering for large or small parties, Kapetan Dimitrios truly is a great meal experience.

The new Kapetan Dimitrios
Located in the east side of Paleochora, Kapetan Dimitrios (named after my Grandfather) is one of the oldest restaurants in Paleochora, dating back to 1991. After 20 years of renting out Kapetan Dimitrios to a local family, the resturant has since been returned to my family since 2011.

I have returned to Paleochora to take over Kapetan Dimitrios with fresh ideas taken from my years of studying hospitality and tourist management in England as well as  the experience I have gained from working in a number of well established restaurants. 

Kapetan  Dimitrios isn't your typical cretan resturant, neither in decor or cuisine. The restaurant has been refurbished to create a very fresh, modern feel, but still maintaining the rustic charm of a local cretan taverna. the menu has been created in the same style. My aim is to bring together the past with the present, by using some of the oldest and most traditional recipies with a new modern twist.

We invite you to come and try traditional cretan cuisine with a difference. Accompanied by a great selection of quality wines from all over Greece, you will have a meal experience like no other. We look forward to seeing you

Kind Regards
