Authentic Greek/Cretan local dishes made with love

Located in Sfinari 50 meters from the beach- a serene picturesque village environment - dining at Sunset is an authentic taverna style restaurant run by a local family with many specialty dishes. I've had many dinners at this classical Greek and local Cretan cuisine. I highly recommend Sunset - an... read more

We arrived after a day at the beach and were thrilled to experience such a wonderful meal. Our server just happened to be the same person who went spearfishing for our dinner that morning. He was an amazing person and we talked with him for quite a while about his fishing and restaurant. It was probably one of the freshest,... More

My recommendation is to come here about 1 hour before the sunset. In the middle of July it was 7.30 p.m. (We arrived about 8 p.m. and it's to late) Sunset was beautiful but you have to take into account sudden weather change - it becomes cold when the sun is preparing to leave. We spent about 0,5 hour more... More

Food is average but the staff is very nice. There is a road separating the kitchen and the tables which is a,little annoying

It was our last night in Crete and also the best night from our trip and this, mainly, because of Sunset Fish Restaurant. The fresh fish food is amazing and the host, Nicolae if I remember correctly was very friendly. He set with us after we ate and told us about the good things in Creta but also about the... More

It was if the fish had jumped into the cooking pot. You must go and see for yourself we had the table overlooking the sea. Good place for walking. It is a... More
