Great food

Really good home-cooked food at a very good price. Friendly people and good service. It just needs more people there to create an atmosphere. I would recommend it but take a party.

As Mikes place is slightly off the main road (near the taxi rank) he has someone on the road to persuade people in. This can be off putting but in fact when we went we enjoyed the food (a pork chop and meatballs), and were given a large appetiser 'mezze' to start and water melon at the end. The ambience... More

We Ate last night at Mikes, and found it to be the best local to eat in during our holiday. Set back just slightly off the main road, so dont miss this treat. We had heard about the beef special on that night so we're keen to try this. A starter dish was brought out first as complimentary, then the... More

The portion huge but most was a bit dry. Plate of veg and... More

We were recommended Mike's Place by the guys at The Jolly Roger and we were not disappointed. The Ouzo, Raki and house wines are all homemade. Mike tells you what he has prepared, usually a choice of 3 to 4 main courses but there is also an A'la Carte option. Don't order any starters as they bring out a plate... More

Not sure as to why Mikes Place is so far down the recommendation list on Trip Advisor. I found the food to be lovely, Mike was very friendly and I will go back on my next trip

Fantastic food done the Cretan way. Had just opened for the season when we went but all the food was fresh and home grown right down to the lamb chops from Mike's farm. More food than one grown woman could eat!!! Wonderful

Firstly before anything, if you can't hack it a bit rough around the edges, don't bother. If you can and are willing to give this lovely place a try then it is a must. Yes the place could do with a spruce up and that puts it lightly. BUT. If you want authentic food where the ingredients are grown on... More

Very nicely run family taverna. Lot's of the produce is from the owners farm. Very friendly people and decent food. One round of drinks and two main courses was 24.50 euros. Very good place tucked away up from the harbour.
