This resturant is away from the main village of Sissi but only by a bout a five minute walk, the food was excellant and the tables were located under the Olive trees in the garden. We had great fun in the hammocks and on the swing seat whilst waiting for our food. You can see the sheep, goats and chickens... More

We visit them for the second time tonight, and with no previous experience, we would rate it even lower. The starter was ok, but than they suggested us to take a lamb as a main course. It seams that this two peaces where the last remaining ones. There were more bones than meet on our plates. We could even go... More

We had visited in a previous year and found that Liofito still had the same ambience and excellent food and service we had already experienced. You eat below the olive trees in the garden. The owner rears animals and chickens on near by land, for use in the kitchen. There is often something different and interesting, other than the set... More

Liofito is one restaurant to add to your to do list when in Sissi. Just a short walk up the main street away from the harbour, its well worth a visit. George and his wife Anna are the most welcoming hosts who take pride in everthing they do. George is very passionate about his home grown food and rightly so.... More

Wow! This really is a gem of a restaurant. Situated in the village rather than the harbour, we were recommended here by our hotel barman as he eats here when he can. We had a lovely stroll through the village with the dramatic mountain backdrop then ate in the beautiful garden surrounded by olive trees and wonderful decoration. There are... More

We ate here three times during our holiday and the food was fantastic. They are passionate about all the meat, fruit and vegetables being organic along with the fact that everything they sell is Greek - even down to the ice cream and Coca-Cola! The wine was wonderful and the surroundings really lovely - if you're lucky you even get... More

We spotted Liofito Restaurant from the coach, on a late night arrival to beautiful Sissi, and our hotel being nearby, decided to eat there, "just for the first night." We ended up eating there for 6 nights out of 7, (that being a fish r/rant by the sea.) Liofito front is quite unassuming, but entering the garden/olive orchard at the... More

My Wife and I first saw this restaurant on our way to visit another nearby taverna. We noticed the farm next door with the goats and chickens and also the pleasant appearance and decided to visit the following night. When we did arrive it had just stopped raining and we were greeted by the friendly owner who quickly arranged a... More
