Description: Sirocco is a traditional Cretan taverna located in Plakias right next to the beach with wonderful sea view. It is a family run taverna with great atmosphere, exceptional and friendly service. Ours guests can enjoy a variety of unique Cretan tastes and all kinds of wine in very reasonable prices.The location of Sirocco taverna in Plakias is ideal for our guests to enjoy their meals away from the noise of the down-town with the amazing view of the sunset over the bay of Plakias.

“The right choice in Plakias”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2014 via mobile

Very good food: we had fish.
Very good service, comparing to some experiences i had in Crete.
They brought olives and yogurt sauce along with bread. They offered raki and watermelon and ice cream.
Elegant location, though it doesn't affect the rate in my reviews.
I had the feeling this place was a bit more formal than restaurants I ate at, while visiting other towns in Crete. This does not match with my personal preferences therefore I rated it 4 stars out of 5.
Prices where slightly higher than other places in Crete, but still very reasonable. Please note I didn't eat at other restaurants in Plakias: by the way I would eat at Siroco again, and I recommend to everybody.

“Quality Fresh Food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2014

If you want to try local food of high quality you must stop here. Local people eat here and that means a lot. You must try the Scirocco salad. Great white house wine and very well cooked meat.

Visited here twice and the food was good.
Had from the specials board the first time which was lovely but the main menu meal on the second time was average.

“One of the better restaurants in Plakias”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 July 2014

This restaurant looks a little pricier than others, but if you are careful about what you order, it is pretty good! The bottled wine IS expensive, so if you're on a tight budget, stick to the house wine.
The specials board is always worth trying and the views are stunning, but if you're a non-smoker don't sit on the upper level as smoke from smokers on the lower level drifts upwards and can be a nuisance!
a good place for a long, relaxing meal.

“True Cretan kitchen”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 July 2014

We liked the sirocco taverna, friendly staff and good kitchen but compared to other restaurants in the area is a step below, mainly for the atmosphere and the price
