Authentic

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.

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

Got robbed here. Ordered fish of the day ONLY but he brings a small plate of garlic bread and bits which he then charges for when you ask for the bill. Was not told this when he brought it but still had to pay. He called it a cover charge. Tbone steak turned out to be pork DON'T go there.

I ate twice at Mike's. The food is great - it is a bit different from others because as far as I could see there is no menu, they cook daily specials from the owners' organic farm and fresh fish/seafood - that said, someone else said they had a menu but you should ask for the specials, so maybe they...

The food is straight from the local farm. Home cooked and rustic. The wine is also locally made and is an acquired taste, I didn't quite get there. Good value, a bit of a different place, if your into fine dining don't go here, if you want good organically produced food this is the place for you.

This place is hidden away up a little side Street. Some one (possibly Mike) some times stands at the bottom promoting the restaurant and there is a coloured disco ball (odd!) to help you spot it. It's a shame they don't have a better menu board and some photos as once you get up to the restaurant it is pretty.... More

Like most people already mentioned; during the day Mike sits at the side of the road and sums up the daily special to you. We've been here twice and it was really nice. Mike is not an entertainer, there is no small talk, no captain popular act. He just takes your order and brings it. I'm not too happy about... More
