Wonderful Greek cuisine combined with an extraordinary view will make a visit this place memorable for a lifetime. I've been twice in the Vasilis restaurant with a break in 10 years. And every time it felt great. Vasilis - the restaurant owner treats their guest by raki and dessert and can make some discounts. Very good service and tasty food.... More

In Our travel guide was written to visit this place. It was't bad, but as good as written, no. The little fish, ok, but no more than that. I had the swordfish -last year I bought myself a part in the chiagga harbour Sicilie- and from the first bite I thought, last year was better. Rets of cooking, normal but... More

The location of this restaurant couldn't be more perfect - right on the beach at Matala. We were there at sunset as the sun sets over the sea. Good service, traditional music, even a round of Zorba's Dance. The mixed seafood menu for 2 offered a good variety of local fish with some veg. This was ~€28, maybe a little... More

The wait staff was awesome, my mother in law wanted vodka but they did not have it in their menu, they went out of their way and bought some for her, no extra charge. they had traditional Cretan food such as snails and greens, along with lamb and fish, everything was delicious. The view is the best in Matala, great... More

Sirtaki is our regular food stop when in Matala, this must be the 6th or 7th time we have dined here. The guy on the door greeted us politely and told us there were lots of tables upstairs if that is where we wanted to sit. In fact, we had the same table as two years ago, right by the... More

Place seemed ok, set menu was really good value. My food was pretty good. waiter was nice. My partner had the sardines, I thought that they smelt a bit "wrong", but I'm not a fish eater. Sadly I was right. Partner ill today with belly issues. Thus sorry, was going to give 4 stars, but could only have been the... More

There's some negative reviews for Sirtaki, but honestly we cannot complain aobut anything. The waiters are extrovert, but nothing we couldn't handle. We thought of it as a correct service. We were six and everyone was quite happy with their plates. We shared some pretty good starters. Especially the Fried Zucchini and the Calamares were perfect. Their mixed grill for... More
