Great meal, good value, and just the right amount of attentiveness from staff. Dourade (bream) was wonderfully cooked and the recommended wine went very well with it. Orange cake with vanilla ice cream for dessert was delicious. Wonderful location too.

Fantastic food - beware - HUGE portions! My daughter had the char-grilled prawns and Souvlaki with Greek salad which she said all delicious. My son and I went for the Poseidon Fish Platter, which comes with its own starters of dips, and bread. I don't think I have ever seen so much fish on one platter, freshly cooked and utterly... More

We stayed in Sissi in May 2013 and drove our hire car along to Plaka. We decided to stop for a fish lunch and chose Giorgos restaurant because it was busy which gave it atmosphere and was right on the water's edge. There are nice paintings on the wall, fishing nets on the ceiling - and - don't miss the... More

The traditional Greek fish taverna by the sea. They catch the fish every morning and you enjoy them with the amazing view to Spinalonga island. You feel like an exotic place. Giorgos is very friendly and treats all people. The dessert of yoghurt with sweet grapes makes you promise to go back. Plaka is spectacular for walk, coffe and food.... More

We had three dinners over a week's stay at Giorgos which should speak volumes on their quality and hospitality. We'd dine there with friends and thus we had an opportunity to share numerous dishes while we were also given complimentary tastings of less known varieties of fish and dips. Their fish was cooked to perfection, dips oh so fresh and... More

Excellent seafood, fresh fish and wines. Service excellent too! The staff would make their recommendations from the catch of the day along with the wine. After your meal was finished they would bring fresh fruit and cake on the house. A nice touch.

A fine place for a beer, an ouzo me pago (ice) or an Ellenikós métrio (Greek small coffee with some sugar). Not a restaurant per se, but serves small, tasty Cretan dishes. Want Greek kafeníon experience? Like to learn some Greek? This is the place, located in a side street behind the main church ( i.e. north side) of the... More

Our hotel recommended this place, but I believe because they have some deal going on here. We ordered their best seafood plate and to our horror we got a plate of deep fried fish that all tasted the same and was enough to feed five people. The orange cake in the end was great really, but outside of that, the... More

Delicious & very fresh food, lovely little (rich) village. It was the only restaurant from the area who was full, maybe the words about the good food has spread a little too much! Reccomanded by a greek friend, we were very pleased by our dinner (85€ for 2- a greek salad, a whole fish with some vegetables, a soda, water... More

Went tonight, 7 August - really slow service, chaotic and very grumpy. Not what I need on holiday. Fish lovely but we could have done without the second fish recommended. If you are going for the food, really good. If you are going somewhere where you want to feel like a customer who is valued, don't bother.
