I have ben two times in Sfakia last year for holidays, in june and in augusta, and I went many times to eat at Lefka Ori Restaurant, really very good in Greek traditional cooking and in fresh fish and lobster. Very nice owners Yanis and Yorgo. Fantastic place, atmosphere and food!

This simple restaurant is run by the Fasoulakis family, my understanding is that the father is the founder and cook of the restaurant and helped by the sons for the table service. Apparently it is the oldest and original taverna of Sfakia, clearly passion and experience paid off, although i would definitely expect a higher grade for this restaurant in... More

We stayed a week here in June. We chose the Lefka Ori based on reviews & the location - we were not disappointed. We stayed in the annexe behind the main seafront building with a partial sea view. The room was simple, spotless & quiet. The small balconey was nice to have a beer & a read on. The rooms... More

Our sheets were full of hair, not ours of course, the toilet was not clean at all, and no soap was there for us. There is no refrigerator and no TV. Fortunately we slept there for just one night...For that price (30euros) was almost affordable...

our apartment was big, clean and well-equipped (apart from salt and sugar which were missing and would have been useful to make a normal meal or to have breakfast at home). Wonderful view on the old harbour and on the sea from the large balcony. You can also park near the taverna.

Having had a perfectly acceptable coffee we graduated to lunch on the strength of the slow cooked food on display. Service was efficient. The mixed salad - fresh - and the baked aubergine - excellent. Local krassi (white) was fine as was value for money. Good shade and a good view ensured a pleasant experience. Recommended.

I got a double room with aircon and balcony for a good price. The bedlinen could have been newer but didn't bother me :) Nice service and good food in the restaurant I ate twice. Also possibility to pay by credit card was a plus Can recommend :)

One can experience some of the best Sfakian food on offer in this village if was to wander along the waterfront towards its western end to the Lefka Ori. Run by Kyrios Andreas and his handsome three sons they offer traditional food of the best quality and a service to match. This is one of the favourite places that repeat... More
