“One of the best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

Pink flamingo george and his family are fantastic the greek food second to none.

Service with interesting greek welcoming facts makes the pink flamingo more of an experience than a meal.

Even after 12 months he remembered ourselves a brilliant restaurant with fantastic service, you either get greece or you dont

George is more interested if you finish a meal than getting paid for it a true gent

“Relaxing!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 1, 2014

one of the very few places in sissi that you can relax while having your meal or drink.. Big garden playground at the back for the kids and a very friendly family running the place ..... enjoy

“Evening meals”

The restaurant was excellent with very good service, the meals were very well presented and apertising. The owner was very attentive and waited table on all visits giving lots of information on the surrounding countryside.

“Fabulous food and hospitality”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

we discovered this Taverna on our first visit to Crete and wished we had found it earlier in our holiday.
An extensive menu which covers all tastes whether you just want a drink/coffee or a full meal.
The hospitality is first class and the food of a very high standard and extremely reasonable.
George the host, along with his family, has a genuine interest in his customers and is most welcoming.
Once we discovered this little "Gem" we re visited several times both for Lunch and for coffee and or drinks.
A beautifully kept garden and play area for children, George picked grapes from his own vine and gave us them to enjoy with our Sangria.
If you do have a meal I can recommend the Mixed Grill if you are hungry but only if you have a huge appetite other than that the Greek dishes we tried were delicious.
Well worth a visit

“Not all it seems”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2013

Whatever you do DON'T go here just for a drink!

We stayed in Sissi at the beginning of October 2013, staying half board at a local hotel with much more hospitality and appreciation for their guests than this unpleasant man did. After our hotel meal we wanted a coffee and a change of scene but didn't want to go far after spending the day in Heraklion.

We asked if it was ok to just come into the Pink Flamingo for a drink as we has eaten, the choice was there to say 'no' if they were too busy. We looked at the menu for an option for the next day's lunch but all we wanted that night was the coffee we asked for which we were told was 'ok'. We waited… and waited, and waited! After being completely ignored for ages we took it that we had been forgotten about and got up to leave. The attitude and tirade of aggression that followed has made me glad that I will NEVER have to set foot in the place again! The attitude was what was our problem, stating in a sarcastic tone "did we have a plane to catch or something?" He really is not only the rudest man I have ever met on a Greek island (we've been to quite a few), he is THE rudest man I have ever met on ANY holiday.

The service was lacking and we could see that it was quite clearly down to us just wanting drinks as the 2 ladies who had come into the restaurant at the same time as us had been given their drinks quite some time before us - they ordered food! It is my experience that Greek hospitality is usually second to none, it certainly was everywhere else. A word of advice, it you can't stand the heat don't serve the coffee! 6 Euros gained but 30 Euros lost as we had a lovely lunch elsewhere the next day - my mother's birthday!
