This is always been a stunning location and it is nice to see a restaurant has opened here instead of the old tired bar. Whilst the food was good and tasty, the portion size was unnecessarily large. We had the spicy lamb with warm yoghurt. All really tasty, but enough for at least 3 people. My wife had enough p... More

Dear Joneseeee Thank you for your re-written opinion of Absinthe. Although it is much shorter and not as labored and somewhat less contradicting as your last attempt, your second try to a review of Absinthe finds your overall rating inconsistent to the four categories of rating. Your comment quote,unquote, "..but is it twice as good as the others in Kamares?"only... More

I have been visiting Absinthe every year since it opened and every time I get a better experience. The food is smart combinations of local ingredients and international recipes, full of well balanced flavors and a nice kick on the spicy dishes. All ingredients are very fresh and high quality, and Leonidas, the chef knows how to cook them to... More

Whilst we both love Greek food it is nice to try something a bit different in Greece. The menu here contained some beautiful dishes. I would not have thought curried chicken would taste this good. A wonderful setting just above the Main Street and harbour. A highly varied menu with some traditional and some not so traditional dishes. Highly recommended.

Excellent food, very nice and helpful staff, speak good English. Some of the tastiest food we have eaten in a long time, including some unusual dishes. Would recommend without hesitation.

Not the longest menu but that probably helps keep the quality high with an excellent choice of dishes. We ended up going for 3 meals during our 5 day stay in Kamares and we enjoyed every one. It became our favourite restaurant beause of the quality of the food and wine, plus the great service from the staff. Because of... More

Sailing around the Greek Islands we anchored in Kamares. Looking for somewhere to eat we came across this true gem. 8 of us were accommodated without any fuss. The staff were very friendly and helpful - I think one of the waiters must have been one of the owners - he was passionate and knowledgeable about the menu. For the... More

Best kitchen I have tasted so far in Sifnos. Owners try to keep the heritage they delivered for the great Taelementes. They try and invent new tastes and plates all the time, based on the local natural products and herbs of the island. Price per person for one plate, salad and a drink is around 20 to 30 euros. Not...

We read the trip advisor reviews and went to Absinthe for a dinner and wow the food was delicious. They have traditional dishes from Sifnos as well as some more international options. The terrace has a fantastic view to Kamares port. Try to seat on the front tables where the view is even better. It is more expensive than the... More
