Another garden style restaurant, which has a lovely staff. We ate here on our last night as it was close to our hotel, and we didn’t have much time. Staff were so accommodating and sorry to say we never ate here more than once, it’s...More

Beautiful setting, really friendly staff and owner. The Taverna has on street parking and is set in a lovely garden although seating is available inside. It has a menu of things always available, but when you arrive you're told what the specials are. We were...More

An absolute must if you want to experience Greek hospitality and cuisine at it's best. We're coming back to Sissi next year and will definitely be paying this place another visit. Lovely!

We went there with our good friends Josef and Aphrodite and their children. The ambience of the place was excellent, surrounded by olive trees, and the service was impeccable. The food was outstanding, from the kebabs to shrimps in a sauce, to shrimps mussels and...More

The setting in the garden is beautiful but we waited a long time for our food. The menu was limited and the specials were not to our taste, veal or a rocket salad! What we ended up with was ok but we wouldn't return.
