Located right on the waterfront this is a great place to eat. The staff are friendly and will throw in a Greek lesson, if like me you are trying to order a few items in their language.The food was fresh, tasty and all at a reasonable cost. To add to the attraction a pair of kingfisher birds were flying around... More

Had lunch here twice, and the octopus was delicious. We had Octopus 7 times in a week and this Taverna's was the best. Probably the best Greek salads too. The views over the sea are fantastic, and we had a light breeze to keep us cool.

This was the only bad eating experience that we had in Sissi. I ordered lamb chops and honestly, what they served was an insult. Small, completely dried up carbonised chops that looked like they had been found down the back of the cooker. I sent them back and they were replaced with very nice freshly cooked chops. Were they having... More

The food would appear to be prepared and cooked in kitchen on the other side of the street, my husband loves lamb chops, very popular in Greece, when they arrived they were so overcooked they were inedible, they were taken away and replaced but by that time I had eaten my lunch therefore we did not eat lunch together, the...

The waiters are friendly, food was great (massive portions so two courses was too much but very yummy) would definitely recommend

This restaurant is amongst several others perched right on the seafront. Fantastic views. Especially at sunset! Typical menu found in Cretan restaurants (always remember the menu's with photo's won't be gastronomic). Standard prices. Service really good but we visited 3 times and the cute 'Yamas' experienced on the first visit gets a bit tiresome after they say it EVERY time... More

As a family of four we had one meal here. Menu choice was excellent, staff very friendly. Only reason I ve scored it 3 was we experienced very very slow service. It was busy when we went but very slow even accounting for that. Staff very apologetic throughout but too slow for us. Even on paying bill it took so... More

We visited Sissi twice, such a delightful place . We ate lunch at the Agristi each time. There is an extensive menu and the food is lovely, wonderfully fresh and well prepared and served. There is parking very nearby. The two men who run the restaurant are friendly and keen to please. It is a very relaxing and welcoming environment... More

Friendly Greek taverna in a beautiful location on the seafront. Run by two brothers who always take the time to stop & chat & get to know you. Great souvlaki & squid, with wonderful homemade chips.
