Delicious local food

We recently visited Sifnos and stayed in Verina Suites. As we were travelling with young children we often opted to nip out and pick up some dinner somewhere locally and bring it back to our apartment. We found Cyclades on our first night and Maria was extremely accommodating. The food was... read more

Walking down platys gyalos, you will find Cyclades restaurant. You should ask for Maria, the owner!! Great lady, with sense of humor, and excellent service. Try out Mastello, the traditional lamp recipy, and red wine.....amazing. I will visit it again and again!!! Maria thank you so much! Thanks to you i'll come to Sifnos again!!

Maria speaks very good English. I had almost everything that they made the days I was there, among them mixed vegetables, delicious, good "Biftecki", meat balls with tomato... More

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. She suggested we try their local dishes the day we visited. We loved it all, but especially the chick pea soup, which in our estimation, was the best on the island. It... More

Variety of food. The setting. And excellent service. They could not do enough for us and, at short notice, prepared a brilliant buffet dinner for 35 wedding guests the night before the wedding.

In September 2012 we came to Plati Yialos to celebrate our wedding with a small group of 30 guests. We were looking for a pre-wedding dinner and found that Cyclades has the best location in Plati Yialos (central, clearly signed, directly on the beach), has a large kitchen that can accommodate cooking for that many guests, while the place itself...
