Best restaurant in Sissi

Food and atmosphere were very good, and we were made to feel very welcome by the friendly staff. We dined here 3 times, including our first and last nights there. The Kleftiko is particularly good. The view is wonderful also.

Caters too much to British/German tastes in my opinion. I asked for a coffee after dinner and the proprietor was confused when I said I didn't want Nescafe...

Spent nearly a day In Sissi recently and feeling hungry visited this taverna. It's situated on the sea front with excellent views and with a very relaxing atmosphere. We all had Greek salads of various types complimented with a Greek beer and thoroughly enjoyed them. Staff were very friendly and polite and service was quick and efficient. Would come here... More

I love seafood. I love everything about it and I like it cooked in nearly all the ways possible. As a big fan of fish, I also know when it is fresh or not. Unfortunately, in this occasion, my full whiting was not fresh not was it cooked properly. My partners dish was slightly better but small serving. Also compared... More

This is our fifth year running and Agistri is always the first place we visit when we arrive and the last before we return home, as well as a couple of visits in the middle even if just for a snack and a drink. Why? Because the food is delicious, the location is unbelievable (I look forward all year to... More

Lovely restaurant with excellent views over the sea. Think this will be one of the older restaurants in Sissi as I remember going 14 years ago and it is still as good. Great food with attentive service :-)

Excellent location on the harbour next to Fisherman’s Place but serving much better food. I had a prawn cocktail starter which was served with a home-made sauce, not from a jar, and it was delicious. I went for the pork chop while my partner went for the chicken. Both were served with rice, chips and salad all of which were... More

We love this place. We went because of the fab reviews on trip advisor and am really really pleased we did - have been twice so far and sure we will go again whilst we are still in Crete. The fish is totally fresh and really cooked beautifully, the meat is of lovely quality - really tender. Great menu choice... More

A fantastic taverna right on the harbour. We visited this taverna twice, it was so good. The kleftico is fabulous, not a large pot, but very tasty, the chicken in sauce is also very well cooked and delicious. Also a very friendly and welcoming place.
