Lovely

Best place we ate in Sifnos. We went early so perhaps missing some ambience but the service was immediate, food served promptly with good sized but not huge portions, we felt like we had eaten, not been stuffed. Seemed to be the only place I'm Kamares which actually had everything listed on their... read more

We went early so perhaps missing some ambience but the service was immediate, food served promptly with good sized but not huge portions, we felt like we had eaten, not been stuffed. Seemed to be the only place I'm Kamares which actually had everything listed on their menu so kudos to good management.

We dined here tonight and it was excellent! Food choice varied, we all made excellent choices - steak, pasta, house wine all very good. Staff very friendly and attentive. Good value for money (fairly pricey but well worth it for our first night on this lovely island) you will not be disappointed! If you like good food then this is... More

I dined at Absinthe every night for my entire stay in Sifnos for 9 days after discovering it. For an adventurous person who loves variety, that's saying everything. The view, atmosphere, cuisine, wines and service is the best I've enjoyed during my world travels. The menu is unique and different to other Greek tavernas and I savoured every meal, especially...

After a very tragic incident at this wonderful restaurant that involved the much loved and respected Chef's sudden passing, and after dining there recently, I want to take this opportunity to assure all of Absinthe's patrons and future guests that this fine restaurant's reputation for it's excellent dishes and service lives on to justify the great late legacy of it's...

The "green fairy" must have sprinkled some pixie dust on this restaurant, because everything about it is lovely--the view over the harbor, the welcoming personnel, and the delicious and unusual food. Our family of five enjoyed a dinner of exquisitely prepared specialties. A favorite was the delicate, light zucchini, leek and chive patties, which my daughter and I have been... More

Amazing food on designplates and good service. All in all a fully complete dinner with good company. Also good selection in strong drinks. Fitting name of the restaurant.

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
