Greece may have economical difficulties in Europe, but it’s certainly not the case of Greek restaurants in Munich! Greek restaurants are institutions over here, and no wonder why… Delicious food and fun all night do sound promising after all! Who hasn’t ever celebrated a birthday at Paros? Who has never accidentally burnt napkins on candles after too many Ouzos? We ALL went waiting 1 hour at Paros or Molos to enjoy a “Gyros Teller”! And because those 2 restaurants are so famous, we decided to tell you about a small Crete restaurant, that has absolutely nothing to envy from his 2 big brothers: Kreta Grill


The location:

Kreta Grill is located in the Nordendstrasse 60 close to the Elizabethplatz Market. Easily reachable by tram (27 from Stacchus).


The atmosphere:

At Kreta Grill napkins might not be in the air, but love for food certainly is! Love for excellent food, love for seasonal products, love for tradition… Mix it with an adorable and intimate place, a friendly service and there you go: Kreta Grill! If you manage to make abstraction of the street out there, you could definitely believe that you are in one of the loveliest restaurant of Heraklion. Also enjoy Kreta Grill in Summer on their cutest terrace ever…



The fffoood:

First thing you need to know is that Nikos and Noel, the owners, don’t joke with freshness: Kreta Grill’s menu changes daily. You’ll basically have the choice between traditional cold or warm starters, grilled fish or meat and desserts. Simple but effective… and we love that!


For starters we TOTALLY (ABSOLUTELY!) recommend the aubergine salad (see pictures below) which you’ll be able to saviour with a piece of bread and a glass of wine. Seasoned to perfection, literally melting in your mouth… Kudos if you don’t go for a 2nd round!


For the main course we tried a bit of everything… The fish? If not sold out for the day we recommend the Dorade. We didn’t have that luck and had to go for the Loup which was served with potatoes and salad. Close your eyes and you might believe you’re only miles away from the coast.


The meat? Although Gyros is on the menu we felt like varying a little and went for the lamb filet which was served with potatoes and tsatsikis. And OMG!!11!1!!1 So tender! So juicy! So tasty! So perfect… And by the way we don’t think we are exaggerating 1 second.


From a price perspective, we paid for 3 starters and 3 mains about 25EUR per person and were not only full but really enjoyed the service and the food all together.


The verdict:

Unlike Paros or Molos, you probably won’t dance on the table at the end of your diner and if the napkins won’t fly, they will teach you a bit of Greek. And after such a great experience, we can tell you: Αγαπάμε την Ελλάδα!!!
