We had a beachside table for dinner and sunset view. The stuffed cuttlefish was truly amazing. Excellent wine, seafood and service. Take the trip to find this gem of a restaurant.

This warm and welcoming taverna in a gorgeous beachside cove was still preparing to open for the season when we dropped by but the family willingly provided us with a fresh, simple yet sumptuous lunch on their sunny atmospheric terrace. Being their only guests just added to the charm, and it was Cretan hospitality at its best. Just go -... More

Sfinari is a little gulf in Crete, consisted of a small, almost private beach and a couple of restaurants. Amongst them is "Sunset" which is the last one. The food is excellent, the service is great (professional yet friendly), their homemade rakomelo tastes so good, the view is breathtaking, one of the best sunsets, i've ever seen and the general...

We have been to western Crete many times over the years. Sometimes we bring our children, grandchildren or friends with their families. Regardless of company we always end up at the Sunset Fish Restaurant in Sfinari. It just brings everything about Crete together: the ocean, the beach, the mountains, the view, the people and the food. And you have it... More

This is truly the best place, atmosphere, food, family, service, everything is so worth going there at least once! We have shared some grilled fish (comes with home grown potatoes), Cretan salad, breads with tzatziki. I must admit it was not only delicious but the whole process of grilling is a must see. We were sitting in the garden outside,... More

From the freshly baked bread with tzatziki, cheese, olive and tomato dips, to the stuffed squid and prawn mains, every bite of the meal was spot on. No frills restaurant on the beach, just a short drive from Kissamos. Absolutely everything I love about Greece is found in this restaurant!! Best meal we have had in Crete so far!

The Sunset Fish Restaurant is set at the far end of Sfinari beach. It is run by a lovely friendly family, Mum was sitting at a table stuffing the courgette flowers with a herby tomato rice (one of my favourites), and the son is serving at tables, very efficiently. Amongst other dishes we asked for a Moussaka, it wasn't available... More

Of course I had dinner during sunset, as even the name of this place suggests, and I was completely amazed by the landscape. The food was fresh and delicious; the complimentary starters and dessert were also very good. Highly recommended.

Nice food - we were served complimentary bread and dips as a starter and a dessert. For the main meal we ordered the prawn speciality with peppers, cheese and tomatoes.
