“Lovely food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2014

Excellent fish, lovely mezze, warm-hearted people...what's not to like? We came here on a quiet evening in April and we couldn't have had more welcoming hosts! Not to be missed!!!

“the "little port" fish tavern”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2014

Right at the edge of the picturesque port of Faros with a serene view of the monastery of "Chrysopigi" on the horizon, this little tavern welcomes you to sit and enjoy a lunch consisting of fresh fish,( most of which are fished by the owner daily) lobsters, fresh vegetables ,octopus, kalamari. All served with a smile by the lady owner who tries her best to assist you. The dishes were delicious, the kitchen exceptionally clean and the prices very reasonable. I would easily go there daily and recommend it warmly.

“Picturesque setting, delicious food, Charming hosts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

Dinner at Limonaki was so delicious, and the setting so lovely, that we returned the following evening for an encore that only confirmed that this spot is the epitome of a chariming Greek Island restaurant. This is a family-run operation: Dad catches the fish, Mom runs the kitchen, and their terrific teenage kids serve the meal. And the food? The fish was so fresh it still had the wiggle in its tail. One night, we were seated adjacent to a Scandinavia pre-wedding party-- can't imagine a lovelier spot for such an event. Someday I hope to return to Sifnos; this restaurant is a big reason why. Enjoy.

“Simple, but delicious & served with a great smile”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We were recommended to this taverna & we went to eat fish. George the owner is a fisherman and the tavern serves his daily catch. We selected the fish we wanted, had it cooked the way we wanted, had all the food served by the wife and the son of the owner & I can tell you, everything was delicious. Perfectly cooked, served as requested and the side orders were as good.
Very reasonabe prices and compementary deserts made our experience of an outstanding value.
A simple family restaurant offering exactly what you expect !!!

“Nice location”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2013

Not consistently good. The fish is always fresh but is often overcooked or oversalted or too fussed with. Insist on light cooking and try the local vegetables too.
