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.

Owners Eri and Fanis greet you with a warm welcome and menus, and while you're deciding, bread and olives are brought to the table to get your taste buds tingling. They provide an extensive menu of traditional Cretan dishes plus plainer fare for those who prefer it, including a good selection of vegetarian food. Over our several visits we had fresh fish grilled, pasta, risotto, chicken and swordfish souvlakis, and it was all first class. And the meal is rounded off with a complimentary raki or limoncello plus homemade panne cotta that's the best ever! Add in the stunning sunset view and this is one restaurant we always visit over and over when we're in Plakias.

Never in my life have I had a better fish dinner ("mixed fish" was one of the daily specials). Sitting at a front-row table, overlooking the bay, watching the sunset, drinking a great rosé (Idyillio) and - perhaps the greatest surprise - eating a "jacket potato" that actually had its own wonderful flavor ... all of this added up to a truly superb experience. Highly recommended. We'll be going back for an encore this evening!

Situated around from the harbour, Sirocco was a wonderful find. The ambience and service were great and the food was wonderful. We dined on a shared starter of Garlic, cheese and bacon fill potatoes (really tasty), Cod in batter with bacon, Chicken fillet in mushroom sauce, and a Caramel Ice cream dessert with drinks for 36 Euro.
The attention shown to the tables by the owner was well noted, ensuring that this good restaurant will continue to thrive.
We will be back as it was definitely on our list of top eating places.
