“EXCELLENT FOOD , SERVICE AND ATMOSPHERE”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 July 2014

Great location overlooking the port of Kamares with view of the mountains.Excellent choice of food mostly Asia Minor cooking but with a twist. Good wine list but you MUST try the Absinthe. good show watching the ice water dripping through an sugar cube into the Absinthe and well worth the wait.Service with a smile like EVERYWHERE in Sifnos!!!!

“Great food and great Service!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Super cozy res above the Kamares Bay.
Very good vegetarian and vegan options like black eyed bean salad, giant beans in a spicy tomato sauce, garden's yield salad, zucchini with anis patties and mint yoghurt, feta in filo with honey and sesame seeds etc...
Good selection of Greek wines very reasonably priced.
In general the food and drinks are priced absolutely adequate considering the quality u get.
Great staff guiding u through the menu, recommending daily specials and wines.
Best sunset-for-dinner-view in Kamares on the second floor of a building overviewing the bay.

“Greek and extra”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 July 2014

Overlooking Kamares and excellent food and wine, could life be better!

The only problem with Absinthe is that it has so many good dishes to choose from
so it is hard to pick just a couple when you like to have them all!
But the good thing is that you can always go back again and again and
taste them all.

Here I think everyone should be able to find something according to their taste.
I can especially recommend the lamb burger, spicy goat (so good!) and my
daughters favorite the chicken with rice and red curry sauce.
I could go on because I have not had a bad dish here, but go and try it you self and
get your own favorite!

I totally recommend the place!

This unique little restaurant has surpassed anything that I have yet to experience on this island.Their cuisine,a blend of the Orient,Anatolian and Greek is well thought of and executed with fresh produce and use of local herbs.Excellent service with good and affordable wines.Beautiful view of the bay and the sunset from their terrace.

“Greek food with a twist”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 July 2014

Absithe is the type of place in which you could spend an evening of fine dining and try the traditional Greek flavours with a twist. Their salad dressings are to die for, and all there others meals are well in order.
