Located near the port, this open air terrace offers very good Greek cuisine at a reasonable price. Service is prompt and pleasant.

Very bad food and bad service. I ordered two starters and could not eat them. Zucchini balls were frozen and in the middle they were still cold, tarama was everything else but not tarama...They charged me the whole money...

After a long day on sweetwater beach, a large group (11) of us stopped in to Delfini for lunch. They were incredibly accommodating for such a big group and recommended all of the local and tastiest dishes, despite the fact they were cheaper than many other items on the menu! Highly recommend for traditional Greek food!

What's better for a light lunch - if you love seafood - than a fish soup? Just I wondered if a Greek fish soup could compare with the best italian ones... well, to make it short - yes, here it does. And for 1/4 the price, probably. The service is friendly. And you are sitting on a terrace overlooking the... More

We went to Delfini (Dolphins) with friends who have a holiday house in Sfakia, know the owner well and dine there regularly. The restaurant is perched above Sfakia'a tiny harbour and has views out to sea as well as westwards along this very rocky coast. The food is very good traditional Cretan. Fish and seafood are very fresh and well... More

We arrived in chora sfakion at the end of the day and we were supposed to take a ferry but it was too late. We were a bit lost and the staff of delfini helped us immediately. We decided to stay there and eat in this restaurant and we were really satisfied. The view over the bay is great! The... More

Friendly service and extremely fresh food. The day was very hot and I choose not to go to the beach which is located below. I ordered a fresh local fish and it was prepared very well. Outstanding view with a lovely point of view of the harbor. I would definitely recommend it to others. Lind of pricey, but worth the... More
