My wife & I ate at Absinthe a week ago and rated it very highly. We had a table by the full length glass window/doors which were not fully open due to the windy conditions. The menu and specials made interesting choices and the food matched the price for quality. The waiter or perhaps manager was helpful & knowledgeable with... More

Absinthe was our most cherished dining experience on Sifnos. Somewhat more expensive than similar restaurants but superior on all fronts. The food was exquisite, the service professional and trilingual,( my wife speeks French). They patiently quided us through a choice of good wines and succulent dishes. The restaurant's lovely decor is greatly enhanced by it's raised position and the unique... More

We first visited in June 2014 and this was our second visit. The food was good, but no better than one of many restaurants in Kamares. You are paying for the location overseeing the bay rather than being on the bay as with most other restaurants. Unless you are actually on the edge, this is wasted as you can't see... More

Dear Gareth H Let me first thank you for your "2nd" visit to our premises. Although your comment "overpriced for what it offers" seems contradictory to your visits here and somewhat unfair since you reviewed us the second time around and you must have known that our menu differs extensively from the surrounding restaurants. And I don't only mean price... More

I recalled having a wonderful meal at Absinthe when my husband and I stayed in Kamares in 2012 so I was keen to return there. This time we were joined by a daughter, son-in-law and 2 teenage grand-daughters. All agreed this is a fabulous place. Service was friendly and professional and the food superb. Among the dishes enjoyed were crayfish... More

We tried 10+ restaurants in Sifnos and this is the best we found (though all were good) : simple yet refined, inexpensive despite its prime location, and friendly service. Highly recommended.

This is No 1 on Trip Advisor and other restaurants in Kamares and on the island are just as good, in our opinion. The quality of food on this island is consistently excellent everywhere and this place doesn't stand above the rest. Food nicely prepared and tasty. Curried goat was excellent and beef casserole on aubergine puree was good. Starters... More

The restaurant is raised above the main Street and offers lovely views over the bay in Kamares. The food was really tasty and was well prepared and presented. We had the house red wine which we also found very good.

Dear didi n, Thank you for your visit to Absinthe. Our menu is extensive, as you may have noticed. Basing your review on a salad which was "ok" and our rice dish that you can also make by yourself, we think is a little too loose to brand us with your terrible rating. Our more than 350 excellent reviews by... More

Excellent restaurant but I'd advise to either make reservations or eat earlier in the evening as they were full the first time we tried to have dinner. I'm glad we came back the next day though. I ordered a smoked salmon pasta that was delicious, and then tried some absinthe for the first time. The presentation was very elaborate and... More
