We loved Sfinari beach so much and loved this restaurant as well! At the restaurant, we ate THE best octopus ever, the dish is Octopus Stew. They also have excellent starters. The view is perfect and the whole scenery of this place is idyllic. Must be visited while in Crete/Western Crete.

Drive to the end of the beach at Sfinari and you find the Sunset Fish Restaurant. Right by the beach, very relaxed setting. Friendly and efficient service. Complementary desserts were delicious and huge- could barely eat them but somehow we managed. Loved it and will definitely be back if is this are again.

This is a lovely family run taverna right by the beach. We had a very tasty and enjoyable lunch of octopus with honey and oven-baked grouper and fish soup. We asked what fresh fish they had that day and they took us into the back to look and explained how they would cook it. We were very glad that we... More

We drove here after we had been to Elafonnisi and found a tranquil and sheltered spot to eat. The Sunset Taverna had been recommended to us by our travel rep. We didn't get a sunset but the fish we had to eat was delicious. Whitebait for starters and then oven baked fish and I had grouper. Really relaxing place and... More

A very cosy tavern, blended with the enviroment, tasty dishes, good service and a relaxing atmosphere just on the beach! The sunset time is highly recommended, but we assume that it would be equally... More

The location is excellent, it's peaceful and quiet there and you can enjoy a marvelous sunset. The stuff is more then nice, and food and service are excellent. We ate grouper fish, prepared on a traditional Cretan way (in the oven), and we definitelly recommend it.

The food was amazing - tzatziki, grilled squid, saganaki, and chicken souvlaki were all delicious! In addition, the prices were very reasonable. This family-owned and family-run restaurant was very friendly and welcoming. Beach views were fantastic. Highly recommended to stop by here on the way back from Elafonisi beach.
