About us.

The Food Visionaries

We founded Nakara with the idea of bringing Crete's best ingredients and modernised recipes to the forefront of the island's emerging real food movement. We specialize in using farm fresh ingredients and old fashioned inspired techniques to create home cooked meals that are delicious, healthful and oh so satisfying.


With our experienced collegues in the European restaurant scene we can also host fine dining events for those who need a more elegant touch.

As private chefs, we can be hired to cater family meals and intimate events. We pool our resources to create awesome meals for small to medium size private and corporate events. Call us today to see what we can do for you.


Offering a variety of high end services and unique menus, Nakara is one of today’s leading voices in the contemporary catering industry. Years in the business have helped them develop a unique team from professionals, literally, to every client, taste or need. So whether you’re planning a housewarming glamorous party in your own private space, tired of cooking for fussy family members or simply need a break from the kitchen in your holidays - Nakara has what you need. For more information, or to book a service, get in touch today.
