Visited here and found this place by chance. It was clean, Fresh and the food was delightful. Service was efficient and with a smile. Would definitely recommend it.

We chose this beautifully situated restaurant because of the good reviews on Trip Advisor, but found it hard to see that it was the same place. Bad food, VERY expensive ( other great restaurants nearby half the price and really good Greek food, not chips with everything !) and the CONSTANT smutty / tourist patter that we kept hearing as he visited every table from the owner and waiters... shame as most people we met here in Sisi were very nice, genuine Greeks. After we had ordered drinks we were told that most things on the menu outside the restaurant were 'off' or 'finished'. Had to reorder drinks twice and side orders never came. Paid the same for chewy, dry, overcooked tuna fish as you would in a good London restaurant.
NOT RECOMMENDED !!

We had an amazing lunch there with amazing fresh fish and great pizza.
The service was very good and they speak good English so it was very easy to order.

The best Seafood Restaurant we've been to this side of the Caribbean!!!!

Amazing view of the harbour in Sissi. The fish is to die for and although we were actually All Inclusive at Vasia Beach & Spa up the road we didn't like the food so had 5 meals at Thalassino Cosmos. Average price with drinks (beers and cocktails) for 2 of us with mixed selection of sharing starters and fresh catch of the day with potato's and Greek salad was 70Euro's which was very reasonable as the days 'catch' came up off the boat at 2pm daily and by 7pm we we're tucking in and salivating at the prospect!
Lovely lady owner and her staff were fabulous. A real taste of proper local Cretan family life.
We would willingly spend the rest of our lives sitting at the outside tables at Thalassino Cosmos drinking cocktails and watching the boats in the harbour...bliss.
***In summary....A real ideallic romantic setting with mouth watering food and fabulous service. Can't wait to go back. :-)

It's not cheap, it's not fast, and I would not come here for meat. If you are after some grilled fish then you can't beat it. To be honest I'm not sure if that's true - we came here five nights out of six so I can't compare with the competition. Our waiter, Kostas, was very friendly and his recommendations were basically whatever came off the boat that morning (the fisherman goes out even on Sunday!). We were never disappointed. Expect to pay about €50-70 for two with starters and the house wine, but for the quality I think it was great value, and some appetisers, desert and raki were free. Lovely.
