Restaurants in Sougia

Sougia has nine restaurants, which most of them offer Greek/Cretan cuisine. Due to the fact that Sougia is not a mass touristic village, you will not find foreign cuisines or fast foods. On the other hand, we believe that most of the people who come to Crete want to try local delicacies.


All of these restaurants have their own specialities, and it is advised to try them all, if possible, during your stay in Sougia.
