One of the best restaurants in Chora Sfakion. Definitely best for breakfast... can recommend the eggs and bacon. Very friendly staff. Good choice and quality of food for dinner. Lovely place to relax in the evening with a drink while playing backgammon (supplied).

We spent three days in Chora Sfakion and this restaurant had the best fish, although not the cheapest, it was the juiciest and most delicately cooked. They also had a sophisticated plate of assorted appetisers and delicious dessert. Good service as well.
