This Taverna serves good food at a reasonable price but of all the Taverna's we visited we found it to be hmmm well very dry. Mike is nice and pleasant but not very enthusiastic or maybe he was just bored the night we went to visit. His locally produced wine was like methanol. we left it. However you wont get... More

Apart from the copious, organic plates, the guy is agreeable, there is a nice terrace, and the dish of the day actually depends on what the cook has available. No frozen stuff here. Don't forget to ask for the raki drink.

Visited this taverna as had good reviews on TA, awful meal, worst of the holiday, I had pork chops which were mainly fat, my son had spaghetti bolognaise or at least that's what it was called but it was a tomato sauce mixed with watery pasta, my husband had steak cordon bleu which was rubbery and tasted awful, our friends...

Please please do go up the little path to Mike's place. We spent the whole week telling him we were fine as we just thought it a bit odd he sat on the street down the road, but on the last night we thought let's give him a go. We should have done it earlier!! He was the nicest man... More

This is a very Cretan restaurant. The food and service are brilliant. They have lovely fresh veg from their own garden. Mike will always tell you what's just been prepared. I asked for a glass of Rosie wine and I got their own homemade mmm it was lovely (but a big glass).

As previously said Mike sits at the bottom of the road drumming up business and telling you the specials of the day. We went twice in 2 weeks and thought it was excellent both times. My partner had special of the day (Pork) which he said was excellent but could not manage it all and he can eat!!! The free... More

We had the pleasure of eating in Mike's last week in Sissi. The atmosphere was lovely looking onto the sea and through a quaint little street. Mike was very warm and welcoming. As a vegetarian there was lots of Options for me - and he was incredible kind. Mike has different potatoes and vegetables everyday, and this time they were... More

As already said old Mike sitting on road side drumming up business for his restaurant thats up a side road off the beaten track. He was very hospitable and welcomed us with complimentary starter which was delicious and so filling that it would have satified me alone! His special of the day was moussaka and there was enough to feed... More

I feel really bad writing this review as we missed Mikes last year and we were really looking forward to going this time round. Even more so when two separate couples recommended it to us. Sorry Mike for giving an average review, you’re a gentleman with a great personality but this wasn’t the greatest experience for us. We would pass... More
