We came to Falassarna without a plan of where to stay, banking on it being the off season and rooms being available. We stumbled upon Sun Set and fell in love with the room, the view (the full length of the beach and beyond), all the character the place possessed, and Maria (the owner and Greek grandmother we all wish...

The served dishes were not well made and not fresh. The menu did not show any special dish of the day and the waiters did not bother to show up. When I got their attention by dragging them to our table the waiter was not helpful at all, did not clean the table, served the Coke without a glass and... More

Had lunch service at Sun Set before heading to the beach. Service was OK, starter bread was a bit too spongy for my taste but acceptable. The Greek salad was well seasoned (yay for oregano!) and the tomatoes were above average. I had the grilled octopus, which was tender but could have benefited from more citrus. The dish came with...

We have appreciated the freshness of the menù . Tomato stuffed with rice were delicious , tasted very good also greek salad and suvlaky chicken. The view on balcony relax everyone and if you want to have a bath on the sea there are 50 meters . I suggest to everyone

Beautiful view looking out to sea , right on Falarsarna Beach with elevation. Lovely first meal with choice of home cooked food which you can look at first before ordering. Second time we felt forgotten as we were sitting on other side of restaurant and therefore didn't go back again but i would recommend the restaurant to fellow travellers if... More

This is everything you have seen in the movies. Brightly color chairs and tables under a fig tree with onions drying in netted baskets hanging off the branches, a view with an unobstructed sunset over the sea, and of course a cuddly and chubby owner and cook named Maria. People gather here not just for the outstandingly well cooked Cretan... More

Don't miss the view, the Greek atmosphere and the Cretan Salad! We have been there at lunch and dinner and our favourite dishes were the Grilled Octopus, Yoghurt with milk and the Cretan Salad (all these three dishes were the best we had in Crete). Nice and friendly staff (including the cute puppies!).

The restaurant is situated in the far end of Falassarna towards the Ancient Falassarna site. Out of the 4 restaurants we tried in the village this was our favorite. My girlfriend and myself ate twice in this restaurant and both times were really good. The food is the standard Greek cuisine dishes cooked very well with good quality ingredients. They... More

We have been there several times, always just before sunset. The atmosphere is amazing, the view over the beach breathtaking and the staff friendly and helpful. Food is tasty and they also serve different traditional dishes each day. Prices are reasonable, certainly worths a visit!
