Excellent taverna with lovely staff

We've been there of the season and we were the only clients. Everything was very good and the roasted goat was delicious!

Thought we'd try this highly rated restaurant for dinner. I ordered the roasted goat and potatoes and my wife had the chicken in cream sauce w mushrooms. Her dish was delicious. Very flavorful, moist tender chicken chunks and a wonderful sauce. Of course the French fries were excellent. The goat I ordered not so good. Described as roasted in the... More

We enjoyed a wonderful lunch of traditional Sifnian cuisine: caper salad, chick pea balls, matzelo (lamb stew) and chickpea soup served by the very kind and friendly Maria.

In September 2012 we came to Plati Yialos to celebrate our wedding with a small group of 30 guests.

The majority of the traditional restaurants on Sifnos share their cooking technuiqe and ingredients.This restaurant is no exeption.Plain,simple and a little on... More
