We visited this taverna on a recent visit to Sissi in Crete. It is set back from the harbour on the main road out of town. it was quiet due to it being the end of the season and other other tavernas had already closed for the winter. The lady who served us was very friendly but not pushy. We... More

Yet another 'GEM' of a night at Menios Taverna. Home cooked food at its best. The place is spotless and that includes the toilets. This family make a reel effort. They do not have the advantage of a harbour view so have used the strength of their natural surroundings with the flower tubs and hanging baskets. The outside tables on... More

Very friendly place to eat and the food is good. The daily special dishes are always worth a try. Special thanks to Effi, the hardest working waitress in Sissi who couldn't make you feel more welcome. The cheese cake dessert is fantastic and best of all it's free. Great location and highly recommended.

Very friendly staff, excellent food - mostly Greek - nice place to sit in the shade. It is right on the main street so there is car traffic, but most places here are on the main street. Highly recommend you eat here!

This taverna is in the centre of Sissi and offered a lovely relaxed atmosphere and as seemed to be the case with many of the small tavernas, is a family affair. The waitress was lovely and the dishes were all fine.
