“Eager to sell.”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

The main reasons for anyone visiting a restaurant are the food,the service,the value and the environment.
For this place:
The food:
No menu(were told what was available that evening),no fresh bread and almost no right of deciding on what we wanted to eat.It was almost shoved down our throats by the very abnoxious waiter/presumably owner of the place too due to his amazing arrogance.Their house wine would have been better off used as vinnegar in their sallads.The available dish,fat and boney lamb meat.
The service:
Overeager waitor/probably owner trying to sell what was available that night...boney and fatty lamb meat with potatoes.
The value:
Outragious for what we"ordered".
The environment:
A 15 minute walk with beautiful setting on the bay across from Kamares in the hotel Delfini,but some very loud children running around the establishment sure made that fade away in no time!
Conclusion:
I never read the hotel reviews about this place,just the restaurant's and have now eaten in almost all of the restaurants on this Island,some excellent,others not so but this one was truely a"unique"experience..

“The only place to eat in Kamares”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

WeI have just returned from a month travelling around the Cyclades, a week of which was spent on Sifnos. After trying several local restaurants with below average quality/service we hit upon the Delfini situated at the end of the bay. The menu is not extensive but the quality and the originality of the food was excellent. George and his wife made us very welcome. His wife is the chef and created something different every day. One day she asked us what we would like the next day. We said lamb, she created the most mouth-watering meal of the whole holiday. We ate there every night for the rest of our stay. If we ever return to Sifnos this is where we would choose to eat.

“Great cook”
Reviewed April 19, 2011

We were staying at another hotel but will stay here next time. Howe ver we stopped in for dinner one night and it was our best on Sifnos. We are here in the off season so there weren't many dinner guests or choices but what there was was all very well prepared. The hotel looks great with fantastic views.
