I had already seen this place reviewed before we went to Crete, so when walking around Sissi one evening and looking for somewhere to eat, I spotted a sign directing to Mike's Place, up a little ally and headed for it. We sat out othe terrace under the biggest Rubber Tree I have ever seen. Mike offered the menu, but... More

A bit hidden away but we make sure we visit Mike's Place when we are in Sissi. Looks like a large menu is available but we always have had one of the daily specials on our visits. Excellent prices, free pudding and Raki after the main course, food has always been good. Recommended.

I had fish, hubby have beef stiffed. both were wonderful. We got free starters - dachas, herb toast, beetroot... More

Mikes place is down a little alley behind the shops on the main road. There is a lovely high tree that stretches over the tables on half the courtyard and the other half is undercover which was good as we went on a really stormy day. The meze starter was beautiful as was the traditional rolled chicken dish with the... More

Excellent freshly caught sea bream and daily specials - typically Greek, with home grown vegetables, carrots tasting like they used to!

So we could not go to Sissi without visiting Mike. On this occasion he promised us sea bass and lamb. The fish was cooked as it should be, simply grilled. The lamb, from his farm, cooked to perfection. The free starters delicious. The wine, again his own, some of the best. Always worth a trip up the path.
