We ate here twice whilst on Sifnos, great little place, food was delicious especially try their specials and the moussaka is good oh and the saganaki was excellent. The only thing we had to note about this place was that it lacked somewhat in atmosphere being unable to see the port from the dining area, but other than that definately... More

The chef picked the greens for our salad right in front of us, and the herbs for our main dishes, too. Lovely food in a charming place - I did not want to leave, and lingered long after the meal was finished. There is something about the atmosphere here, especially at twilight, that seems magical.

It's really the best Greek cuisine in Sifnos. Everything is good and natural. In October you don't have everything on the menu and it's better: only fresh products from the islands. Do not miss the mini goat cheese pies; they are amazing. Great service too. And the outside "room" for having diner in the middle of the Boulis hotel is... More

We came across this gem toward the end of our 14 days trip but once discovered, we came even right before ferry departure to pick up a couple of great chickpea balls and pies to take away on our trip back home. Andonis makes wonderful mastelo, juicy rabbit stifado and a spinach pie to die for, as well as the... More

The place was great. I ate there several times, the food was excellent as well as the wine. Also the service, although not professional, it was quite good.

I went to Kafenes 2 times during my stay in Kamares. It is found at the Boulis Hotel, in a beautiful courtyard. At the first visit I had zucchini balls for an appetizer and mousaka as a main. Both were very good. Before my 2nd visit, I saw the waiter at the beach and asked him what I should order.... More

Kafenes is the the restaurant of the Hotel Boulis and located in the garden of the establishment with grape vines hanging over your head but not much more of a view and very,very simple,down to earth furnishings. The service is somewhat on the slow side but the food fresh and truly prepared with much patience and a dash of love... More

Andonis – runs probably the best Sifnos cuisine in Sifnos. He learned from his mother and father (Boulis -who ran the most famous taverna in Kamares for 40 years) and Andonis has taken these traditional recipes and put his own modern touch to them – and the result is stunning. Best Greek food in town (and maybe in Greece).

Kafenes (joined to Hotel Boulis), surrounded by grapevines, Kamares beach and being a 3 minute walk to the charming port, the restaurant was a definite highlight of my European trip! Open for lunch and dinner the authentic home cooked food was prepared and served by a family and friend team that made me feel very much at home. The staff... More

Why didn't I come here earlier? I never considered at having a look inside the hotel Boulis and what a surprise to find such a beautiful, lovely little garden court in which the restaurant is located. Just to sit there between all those plants under the wine pergola, all peaceful and calm with a glimpse of the sea and some... More
