We didnt fancy eating down in the harbour every night so we went and found the Edem, which is just at the end of town, towards Malia side, next door to the pottery shop.
What a find, the food is fantastic but you need a good appetite, massive portions.
You get the normal free bread to start, followed by a main course and we had a soft drink each, followed by a free large plate of water mellon and honeydew mellon, along with a seperate large plate with a massive dollop of ice cream and cake.
Fell off my chair when the bill was less than 18 euros for 2 meals.
Soon got back on my chair and returned 4 other times.
Lovely owners and all freshly made,including veg from their own garden, so much so that if you go too late in the evening they have often run of certain meals.

Edem is a new taverna and one I would recommend. It is run by a charming couple who are so welcoming. The food is very good , but prepare to be very hungry as the portions are massive. After the meal we were given lovely cake with ice cream, melon and raki. We ate there a few times and will certainly go back when we return to Sissi.

Edem is a welcome addition to the taverna scene in Sissi.
The owners have made the best of the position by excellent use of plants everywhere to give an atmosphere of calm even though the actual setting itself is a bit clinical.
The taverna is situated opposite The Alexandros Hotel leaving Sissi west towards Bella Vista, 10 mins from the centre.

The food is good and would have received a higher accolade but for the last meal we had there when the meat on both main courses was massively overcooked.
The couple themselves are warm and inviting and no doubt by the end of the season their understanding of English will improve.

The menu is a bit limited but I have no doubt that as it gets more popular "specials" will appear.
It's difficult for start up's to be able to offer more than a basic menu because they can't gauge how many people will come through the door.

It's hard to imagine that you could pay less for a meal of similar quality (even allowing for the fact that our meat was overcooked on our last visit) anywhere.
It's very reasonable!

Go and try it for yourselves, I don't think you will be disappointed.

We were told of this restaurant by a couple who had tried others and they recommended it,
it was away from all the touristy eatieries and we were glad as we enjoy "old greece" more,
the food was very good and set out well not overloaded on the plate we had stifado
then we had a lovely ice cream dessert with syrup and chocolate sauce on
finnished with fresh melon and a raki it was only 23-50 euro!!!
