Stopped here for a beer and a late lunch meze plate. The setting is great, but the service was slow and the waiter short-changed us from a €50 note. He said he was stressed and gave us the €30 missing, but as there were only 2 or 3 other tables occupied mid afternoon . . . it left us with... More

Nice little family run taverna overlooking the harbour in Hora Sfakion Good menu (veggie friendly) and like most of the other local tavernas we ate at we'd advise a selection of the appetisers rather than a main course Food is freshly cooked with good sized portions Staff are very friendly (to the extent of having a glass of raki with...

Right by the sea, nice setting. Food display and fish display you can choose from. Very relaxed service. No baby chair. Marvellous fish-vegetable stew from the display. Ok bureki, ok stuffed veggies. Would not take pork soulvaki once more. Liked sfakian pita with honey.

Maybe they were having a bad day but my experience of this restaurant was nothing like the other people who have reviewed it. I went there about 3 weeks ago with some friends who were visiting from the UK. The waiter was either drunk or drugged.. or both! The service was extremely sloppy and very, very slow. I had to...

We ate here after walking the Imbros gorge. Location excellent right on the waterfront. Were not rushed at all, and it was good to choose dishes from the display- something I remember from other Greek holidays but not seen so often this trip. I had fish cooked in the oven with vegetables and a tomato sauce which was delicious and... More

This is a super restaurant on the waterfront and has great staff. It's a family business, established in 1969 and you can sense the unity and pride in what they offer. (We called it "Barry White's" due to the incredibly deep and gravelly voice of one of the waiters.) We had very relaxed early evening drinks here (v good gin... More

On our last night in Chora Sfakion we wanted to eat at Lefka Ori as it was also the hotel we were staying at. Just as we sat down on the waterfront seating area we looked up and saw the sky begin to turn the most ominous brown orange colour with massive thunder and lightning bolts. The Daskalogiannis ferry scurried... More

This is the oldest and first taverna in Sfakia. lovely setting over the harbour. It is also a hotel. We had been on the boat trip to the Gorge and stopped before we drove back to resort. FABULOUS. All home cooked Greek delights. We were rather greedy as we just wanted to try it all. VERY GOOD.

This family run restaurant serves you the authentic Cretan dishes.. home made! No touristic prefab food made by 'chefs' wo cook in the summer and are car mechanics in winter. This restaurant is open all year and is in our opinion one of the must-go places when near. We try to travel through Crete/Greece each year and if Sfakia is... More
