Description: In the heart of Sfakia, the most traditional region of Crete, we have been providing hospitality for almost 30 years. Welcome to Samaria Livikon Hotel & Restaurant offers an exquisite seaside restaurant for your breakfast, lunch and dinner. The menu consists of a full palette of local Sfakian and traditional Cretan dishes, and international cuisine. All is freshly prepared by our staff in our modern and professional restaurant kitchen. You can eat outdoors on our shady terrace with full sea view, or indoors. Our friendly staff speaks Greek, English, German, French, and Russian, and can help you with choosing your meal. We also serve a selection of local Cretan wines, draft beers and many other beverages, and fresh Sfakian pastries. Our hotel and restaurant have many guests and groups that are visiting the hotel year after year, of which the staff is very proud.

Located on the small village beach with seaview. Had a great lunch with mostly fish dishes, dorado, mixed fried seafood, sardines, mussels and grilled swordfish. The kids chose pizza and pasta. And we had greek salad and a fantastic grilled feta with chili. All food was great, good size servings, and the staff friendly, good to recommend, and advised us to order less pizza for the kids, 2 for 4 kids of 7 yo, good call. There were other great looking non-seafood local dishes ranging from 6-15 euros. I can recommend it and would come back.

Great location right on the sea front and plenty of tables, food was good and service also good, prices are about average with a good selection of menu choices. There was an issue with wasps and we have noticed this before in this village so its not just the restaurant that has this issue. The village is lovely and well worth a visit.

Good fresh food, we tried many dishes and everything was good (cheese pie, lamb pie, eggplant, calamars, tomatos with rice). Very nice people there and you have also a beautiful sea view. We also ordered some drinks, french fries and desserts for a total of 20 euros per person.

Fish plate was good, lamb in red wine was lamb in oil but ok ....service was indifferent (not busy at all) - a single slice of watermelon as dessert underwhelmed to be honest but maybe it was just an off night .....
