Each of the three major cities of Lassithi has its own culinary map. From the more cosmopolitan Agios Nikolaos, to the picturesque Siteia and the more “family-friendly” Ierapetra, choices range from the small tavernas where you can enjoy raki and local “meze” up to the modern, stylish restaurants with creative cuisine.
Moreover, in all three cities you can taste fresh fish and seafood, as in all the coastal areas of the Prefecture.
