Description: Sirocco is a traditional Cretan taverna located in Plakias right next to the beach with wonderful sea view. It is a family run taverna with great atmosphere, exceptional and friendly service. Ours guests can enjoy a variety of unique Cretan tastes and all kinds of wine in very reasonable prices.The location of Sirocco taverna in Plakias is ideal for our guests to enjoy their meals away from the noise of the down-town with the amazing view of the sunset over the bay of Plakias.

I was here with my girlfriend and my parents. We all had different things to eat, but the fact that the table had an actual table cloth instead of the usual plastic cover with paper and the table was already made with glass and cutlery was very neat. The napkins were of better quality than the common cheap paper napkins used by everyone else.

Nice welcome and we got a table straightaway. The menu was translated into English, German, Italian and Russian I believe and had a broad variety of seafood and meat. An actual wine menu was present as well.. They have today's specials, which you also don't find everywhere in Crete.

The food itself was really great!
I had beetroot with vinegar and garlic for starters and freshly grilled salmon for mains. Both were excellent and had a lot of taste to them - plus they were very big portions!

Nice staff, smiling and not to chatty; just how I want them ;)

We really enjoyed our dinner in Sirocco, portions were big, food was delicious with complimentary deserts at the end, and deserts were really special, something like home made cheese cake. Service was also excellent, definitely must, if you are in Plakias!

When on vacation, it is always a challenge to find a nice restaurant, a restaurant featuring the local dishes, the local style, the local mood – contrary to all the standard tourist traps to be found everywhere.
So what do you do? Of course, ask some thrustworthy person knowing the area!
We were in Crete end of June 2013, staying on the northern coast line, but were recommended that when making a small island tour in our rented car, we should go to a small place named Plakias, on the southern coast line of Crete. There we should look for a family taverna called Sirocco. We did as we were told, and did not regret it in any way. The restaurant is beautifully located with magnificent sea view, and the seafood which the restaurant is famous for, satisfied all our wishes and more. A very pleasant late lunch experience, very delicious food, excellent and very friendly service, and everything at great value for money!
Wherever you stay in Crete, it is worth every kilometer of driving to get there!
We’ll be back!

We came there 3 times during our vacation.
Food was delicious, fresh fish, excellent lamb.
They even mention whatever is not fresh but brought frozen, which I find very honest.
Eri and her husband run this place with a relaxed atmosphere. You won't feel any pressure even spending a whole evening on a cup of coffee. The Sunday evening with Greek music was exceptional.
