Absinthe is located on a balcony overlooking Kamares Bay Beach and beautiful sunsets. The food is exceptional and the service is outstanding. We had dishes cooked in clay "gastres" or pots with sumptuous ingredients that included pork with prunes and plums and chicken with apples, as well as a wonderful rice pilaf based on cuisine from old Constantinople. The wine... More

During hour 2 weeks in the cyclades, we ate about 10 dakos salad and the one from absinth was the best. We also enjoyed very much the eggplant salad (similar to baba ganoush). The service was great, very nice waiters. We would then recommend!

13 of us were moored for the night in Sifnos on a lads sailing holiday and happened upon the Absinthe which enjoys great views over the bay. The food and service were superb, Although the cost was a few euros more than the standard Taverna - this was good quality restaurant fare and worth every penny. Most had the spicy... More

A lovely space situated in an outdoor terrace on the second level of a waterfront building. The decor is lovely and the menu is exciting. A number of the most intriguing choices are cooked in oven in the traditional Sifnos method using terracotta casseroles made on the island. All of the dishes we had were delicious and used fresh local... More

It is a combo of Greek, Eastern and chef's brilliant mind that produces unique tastes that are truly unforgettable. Love it every time as food remains every time the best you can eat. Great view of the harbor of Kamares without the noise. Worth trying: the curry chicken, the eastern rice, the shrimps, the feta saganaki and many more ...... More

After a couple of weeks island hopping I was getting a bit tired of the same old Greek taverna menus offering the same old dishes. Absinthe really hit the spot when I wanted something a little different. Top quality cooking; friendly and efficient service; and a relaxing and comfortable ambience. The hot and spicy goat with basmati rice was phenomenal... More
