Crete With Fish Allergies?

25 February 2008 - 11:49 PM

My fiance and I are considering honeymooning in Crete in April 2009 (not sure what town yet, just beginning to narrow it down). But my fiance has a severe (fatal within half an hour) fish allergy and we've been reluctant to travel to coastal areas in the past for this reason.

I'm wondering how much of the cuisine on Crete is fish/seafood based? I've been reading about the types of foods available but couldn't figure out from the various lists I've found what percentage of the dishes served in restaurants is fish? We both eat other types of meat and I'm hoping we can make this work. Are particular regions or towns particularly heavy or light on fish cuisine?

In the end, we could always rent an apartment and I can shop and cook for us, but I'm hoping that we'll be able to eat out a fair bit and try some yummy foods. :rolleyes:

On a related note, can any one speak to their experiences with nearby hospitals?

Thanks much - we're both so excited about this trip...it would be the first time for both of us!
