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

We had a beachside table for dinner and sunset view. The stuffed cuttlefish was truly amazing. Excellent wine, seafood and service. Take the trip to find this gem of a restaurant.

This warm and welcoming taverna in a gorgeous beachside cove was still preparing to open for the season when we dropped by but the family willingly provided us with a fresh, simple yet sumptuous lunch on their sunny atmospheric terrace. Being their only guests just added to the charm, and it was Cretan hospitality at its best. Just go -... More

Sfinari is a little gulf in Crete, consisted of a small, almost private beach and a couple of restaurants. Amongst them is "Sunset" which is the last one. The food is excellent, the service is great (professional yet friendly), their homemade rakomelo tastes so good, the view is breathtaking, one of the best sunsets, i've ever seen and the general...

We have been to western Crete many times over the years. Sometimes we bring our children, grandchildren or friends with their families. Regardless of company we always end up at the Sunset Fish Restaurant in Sfinari. It just brings everything about Crete together: the ocean, the beach, the mountains, the view, the people and the food. And you have it... More
