Thoroughly enjoyable

Chicken and rice with a mild curry sauce was my choice and, before it was served, I was offered a complimentary dish of spiced feta. After the main course, which I thoroughly enjoyed, I was given a glass of raki. Some places certainly know the art of presentation.

Superb food, relaxed atmosphere, great staff and the views! Priceless! If you are in "town" you should not leave before you tried this place.

Thanks to Trip Advisor, we went to this restaurant, which we may have overlooked as its upstairs and not immediately visible from the street. Being upstairs though, it has a great view of lovely blue flag Kamares beach. Everything we ate here was delicious, cooked with a light touch and using quality ingredients. We especially enjoyed the pasta with squid,... More

This restaurant has contributed to some of the finest dining occasions in our lives. Frequenting Sifnos at least twice a year, we have become patrons to this wonderfully rich in culinary ideas and dishes, restaurant. An all Greek wine list with some of the best Greece has to offer and a professional and attentive service unmatched anywhere on this island.... More

Nice and tasteful place overlooking the beach. French menu and French speaking staff. Had the rooster and a Greek variant of a burger, very tasty! They offered two shots of rather strong liquors at the end (hence the name Absynth!)

Thanks to tripadvisor, we found this nice restaurant in the port of Kamares. All dishes were excellent, especially the salad (with white and red cabbage), the swordfish and the unforgettable cheesecake!!! Servers are very sympathic and the place offers a nice seaview. Highly recommended.

The traditional Greek items interspersed with variations of other Middle Eastern dishes makes for interesting and unusual choices. The goat is delicious as is the baked rice with mushrooms, berries and nuts. My husband had the clay pot baked lamb dish and it was excellent. We went back on our last evening for a seafood meal and my husband had... More
