We spent three weeks in Greece last May, and we had tremendous food everywhere we went: Athens, Santorini, Folegandros, Sifnos and Samos. One of the absolute highlights was our lunch at Cayenne on a sunny afternoon on Sifnos. Chef-owner Nikos Neroutsos, who also is a visual artist, has gallery space upstairs from the courtyard restaurant. Patrons can have a drink,... More

The food is very good here and the portions are large! Friendly staff who know the menu and are very helpful but they are busy and so don't expect to eat and run...why would you want to in a place like this anyway!

every restaurant in Sifnos is understaffed, but this place gets really busy and your waiter can go AWOL for a reeeeeeallly long time, so be forewarned. It's got a nice vibe, particularly the downstairs outdoor seating. The do variations on traditional Greek food-- like a calamari served over revithada with a spoon of beet puree and some lemony sauce thing... More

We happened upon this restaurant for lunch, and wound up going here a few times. As salad people, no one makes better Greek salads than the Greek, as might be expected. Divine tomatoes, baby cucumber, green pepper, Calamata olives, and topped with delicious Greek feta, oregano, and Greek olive oil, just so good wherever you go. Greek salads are a... More

Visited the restaurant on our first night and what a great choice. Fantastic location and great food cooked by Nikos who also has his small gallery of his own art! Loved it with great service and wonderful honest wine recommendation!

An honest try by the chef to combine local products and recepes with internationally inspired ones. Good wines but lack of knowledge from the staff on recommendations. We were there at the end of August and had to book two days ahead for a table. Busy, busy!

We went here looking for just snack. There was more style than substance here. This might appeal to some people but I come to Greece for authentic good food. All the dishes had a twist that didn't seem necessary. My chickpeas and squid came with a beetroot jam that added nothing to the dish. The "cheesecake" starter was little different... More
