Enjoy delicious cuisine based on ancient Ayurvedic principles, emphasizing wellbeing, balance and bliss in the body.
You create your own plate from a selection of plant-based dishes, fusing exotic Indian flavours with the tastes and character of traditional Greek cuisine.
Angelo, whose love of Greek cuisine and nutrition have led him to work with food for over 30 years, met Suresh, our resident Ayurvedic chef from North East India in Goa in 2015. Suresh learned the magic of Greek cuisine and together with Elvira, who is the goddess of pastries and sugar free desserts they take care of the delicious meals at Caretta Lounge Restaurant.
The kitchen takes great pride in creating meals with complete taste profiles that tantalize the taste buds and leave the body and soul satiated, nourished and energized.
We eat together twice daily on Caretta’s open deck with the amazing view of the Aegean Sea or the Moon rising!
Meals are served at brunch and dinner, times specifically designated around your daily Yoga practice and for your optimal digestion.
For something extra, the kitchen is available to serve you in between meals, with juices and smoothies, and a selection of healthy snacks and salads available for order throughout the day.
Our food philosophy centres around local, organic wholefoods. Much of the produce is harvested daily from Okreblue’s own organic garden. Other ingredients are sourced as much as possible from local and organic Parian and Greek suppliers. We emphase minimal waste in the Kitchen. Ingredients are frequently up-cylcled and scraps are composted to optimise the produce from the land and minimise our impact on the environment.
For more than 13 years, Okreblue have been feeding guests and nourishing bodies on retreat. The food is undoubtedly one of the defining factors of the Okreblue experience. Every season, after every retreat, there are requests from guests to share the secrets behind Okreblue’s unique recipes.
