“The best food I've eaten on Crete !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 17, 2012

We got there with a tourist guide :). So special thanks to the author ;). Inside you can feel like at home. Food is excellent, always fresh and tasty. Restaurant is family business, they care about each customer. Owner explains exactly what each cousine contains. If you don't like some of the ingredients (or because of some reasons you can't eat one of them) chief preper the meal without it or change it. Anyway it's still tasty :). Me and my husband used to eat in Sokaki in 2011 every day during our holiday on Crete (eventhough we stay in Gouves). I was pregnant then and had diet. They'd been preparing for me special meals, unbelievable!!! Thank you !!! The most expensive dinner for 2 (our last) - with starters (sea food), main courses, wine, wather, fresh orange the bill was 45 euro. Very reasonabe price. Normal meal 20-40 for 2. And delicious unexpected desserts on the house.

“Delightful Local Cuisine!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 27, 2012

Soukaki is a great place to get a sampling of local food at really great prices. We got the dinner for two package, it was something like 25 Euro. It was an extremely good value and more than enough food. One of the more impressive parts was the many different dishes brought out fresh and thoughtfully prepared. You could tell everything was made by hand and not typical tourist fare (see waterside promenade). The salad was fresh, delicious and gigantic.

The service was great. They watched us progressing through the many dishes and brought new ones just on time.

I highly recommend this place and would not hesitate to return! Just pick a big table to fit all of their lovely small dishes:) A cab driver brought us here from a resort when we asked for something local - what wonderful luck! It is on a tiny street near a church.

“Definitely worth trying!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012 via mobile

I've visited Sokaki a few times and the owner still remembers us after 3 tears of absence. The female owner prepared a lovely dish for my daughter with pasta and salmon exactly as she liked it and I had a fresh dorade. Everything is prepared with great care, you will feel the great atmosphere in this pretty little restaurant with nice people. It's just a little further from the noisy restaurants on the boulevard but so much better!
