Amazing food & welcoming, friendly staff! Ordered Grilled Shrimps & Boiled Octopus, both were delicious. If ordering a tea or coffee, always ask for sugar because they don't know if you want it or not.

Friendly and welcoming, magnificent salad, everything we ate was wonderful, generous, fresh and delicious. Everything about this place won us over, and makes us want to visit Chora Sfakion again. Next time, the lamb! Best food we've eaten in Crete!

We went here for lunch after our Imbros Gorge hike. Very pleasant staff. The garlic bread was the best we've had so far during our vacation. The chicken souflaki was awesome, very tender, very tasty. A great place to visit
