“Great starters. Truly awful mains.”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2012

Thought this place looked good.Good attentive service, starters tasty. Then the mains arrived. Fillet of perch- battered!! Sauce not as described. Very heavy. Fillet of steak ordered and asked for "medium"- cam like an old piece of leather with a gelatinous bernaise sauce. Both mains priced at 18 euros, much more than any other restaurants in Sissi. Returned both mains and paid only for starters and drinks. Awkward due to the shouting between staff in the kitchen when we complained. Definitely wouldn't go back.

“The worst we have ever been treated in a restaurant!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2012

Looks lovely but when our starter was served and was not as described we complained the first time. They gave us some prawns that should have been in the dish on a side plate and then came the mains which as we ordered a starter and a main of the same dish for my wife and I we questioned why they were the same size? Their reaction was to say " Who Cares" - we said we would not be returning and again got the same "Who Cares"

If this had not been one of the first nights of our honeymoon we would liked to of made more of it with the restaurant but chose to pay and walk off. Social media will ensure others are told.

“Great Restaurant”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2012

We had a great meal and evening at Mammia Mia. The staff were friendly and the view was spectacular. We went to a couple of average restaurants during our stay in crete so Mammia Mia was a lovely treat. Would of gone back if we had longer there!

“good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2012

we thought this place was closed (it was in late June) but found it back open again, we sat inside as it was very windy the night we went and the food was good, pasta cooked just right with a pesto sauce and a beef medallion dish also cooked very well, the starters of oven roasted veg was perfect, reasonably priced as well

“Great Italian food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

Great Italian food at reasonable prices. The restaurant is down in the harbour, enjoying your evening meal with the sea breeze and sound of the waves lapping against the rocks is most enjoyable although do not forget the bug spray.
