About us

Bakaliko Crete was conceived and founded in early 2013 by Agnes and Susanna – 2 pioneering Hungarian women who had come to Crete over the years, fell in love… with the island and decided to stay.

“We harbored an innate passion about the beauty and bounty of Crete, the way of life and of course the Cretan foods & wines. Our aim was to increase awareness of the superior quality and diversity of Cretan and Greek products. Having lived here for so many years and having travelled to every corner, we had discovered amazing foods and ingredients which we wanted to share with those who visited Crete and for those who would like to savor the tastes they’d discovered and recreate them back home. This was our fundamental mission.”

We had an opportunity to take a cooking class at Bakaliko and were greatly impressed. Agnes and Susanna have created a gem in the heart of Iraklio wine country. These wines were by far THE BEST we had during our 11-day stay in Crete. In short, highly recommended, delightful experience.G.F. Rose

We ate at Bakaliko at least once every day while we were in Archanes. The owner was delightful and informative and gave us a great recommendation for a taxi driver/guide. The food was insightful, fresh and with a flair for the innovative. Bakaliko is a 'must' for every visitor to Archanes.Mary Beth
