History Through The Ages

At Lasithi Plateau’s northwest entrance, right on the border of Heraklion and Lasithi prefectures, set against, on one side, those towering, stone-built flour mills that adorn the passage and, on the other side, the view over the plateau plain of exquisite natural beauty, the visitor comes across the traditional restaurant of “Seli Ambelou”, a family run business, already in its third generation.
Delightful Experience

Imposing Dikti Mountains

Since 1987 we serve even the most demanding guests, combining traditional Greek-Cretan cuisine with friendly and wholesome service. The warm harmony of the colours of stone and wood, the large fireplace, the balcony, the beautiful yards and gardens that offer panoramic plateau views, provide moments of relish both on cold, winter days and hot summer nights.
Access for persons of special abilities is possible across all spaces.
