Eating

Xenia Hotel has its own  its own integral tavern. The manager specializes in cooking fresh, local produce, particularly local meat and very fresh fish. 
The kitchen is modern and spacious, readily open to inspection by diners or others. It is kept spotlessly clean and only the highest quality ingredients are used for all meals - from local eggs for breakfast to Sfakian lamb, sausages, chicken, pork, fish and vegetables. The Hotel prides itself on the high quality of its housekeeping and catering.

Large choice of tavernas - which because Chora Sfakia is small you really "can't miss it" - along the harbour front.

Embarko cafe is on the way in to Sfakia as you come down from the Imbros direction, it has a most impressive view over Sfakia (a view to stir or calm the soul), out to sea and the not-so-distant white buildings of Loutro.

There are  bar/cafes opposite the Post office, but you can have a drink at any of the tavernas.  Just must have fish? Ask to see what fish they have at any of the tavernas and choose your fish, that's the best bet, you can also find out the price if you wish - usually charged by weight, at the same time.

We have eaten well on the harbour front at a good price - the main difference is that good lamb or the more expensive fish make a difference to the total cost of a meal.

For a quick bite, the bakery has good Tiropita (cheese pie) and pastries.
