We had been told about this small restaurant which is a good 10-15 minute walk on the road heading out of Sisi and it was well worth the extra stroll. Beautiful garden setting amongst olive trees. The host was very welcoming and brought out bread and olives on the house which were delicious. One of the specials was lamb cooked... More

Visited the wonderful Liofito twice during our two weeks in Sissi and my wife and I both agree this is easily the best taverna in town.. Intimate and peaceful location, excellent service, wonderful food and wine.. The shrimps with ouzo sauce is a showstopper in itself! The moussaka which was a special one of the nights was truly amazing. All... More

Watch you do not miss this. It is 50 yards from Neromilos but the main seating area is slightly off the road, so can be missed in the dark. IT is well worth finding. The food is excellent, the host is a lovely friendly guy and the prices are reasonable. What more can you ask for.

This small taverna is about 10 minutes walk from the centre of town but worth the effort. The setting is lovely and the food real quality. The only thing that let it down slightly was that the service was a bit slow, but we were on holiday so in no rush.

Lovely dining experience on coloured tables and chairs in quiet spacious garden surrounded by trees and bushes. We visited on a busy Saturday and only waited 10 minutes for a table. The owner was very friendly and spoke excellent English. The menu offered a wide range of starters but main courses mostly limited to meat and pasta dishes. We chose... More

I had dinner here twice and on both occasions it was just lovely. Lamb chops and mixed grill and Greek salad the next eve fig salad, roast pancetta and prawns in ouzo sauce. Mouthwatering. Give it a whirl you won't be disappointed. George is a delight but watch the complimentary ouzo it goes down very easy!!!

My fiancé and I visited here a few days ago, such a lovely scene. Olive trees with coloured tables in a yard. The menu has a variety of items, bread is given before meals which is great if your not gluten free--I am so I wasn't able to avail of this, my fiancé did enjoy this along with the olives... More

We visited Liofito on our last night in Crete and we weren't disappointed, although there is a limited menu there are options for all and the outdoor dining experience is well worth the walk. Local dishes, including shellfish is on the menu and I recommend the Saganki cheese and Ouzo Prawns, delicious! if you're not a animal lover though maybe... More
