Set away from the main town and the beaches but worth the walk to find a little gem. The young girls serving were all very friendly and helpful with our decision regarding what to order. We ate a salad, a huge plate of fantastic lamb chops, 1/2 litre red wine, 1/2 litre white wine and lovely warm garlic bread for... More

Fantastic GOAT cutlets. The best thing to try there is goat meat. Don't miss the starters. The people are very friendly. Good prices .

The set up is nothing extraordinary but the meat is really really good (we had goat spare ribs). We were a bit disapointed that our spicy cheese salad (tyrokauteri) was not home produced. The french fries were amazing as they were 100% homemade.

It has long been known as the best spot to eat beef, lamb of goat meat in the island. This year it did deliver as well. I went there twice, was not disappointed. Mezedes (appetizers) were also good, the prices right, if you have grilled meat you may want to ask for it not to be well done- they do... More

We went there once for dinner. It is one of the very few restaurants out of the centre, as far as we know. They have a quite nice terrace, though it is a few hundreds meters from the sea. We had a decent hamburger and an excellent roasted goat, cooked in the oven with potatos and lemon. Given also the... More

Despite the fact that in Koufonissi there are lots of fishermen, the best restaurant in this small island is the one where they mostly have meat. The lamb chops were simply the best I have ever eaten - the tomato pie as a starter was also delicious. Home made fries and tasty fresh salad completed this perfect meal. As everywhere... More

Went to this taverna because of the raving reviews but we had a completely different experience. My beef was very tough so I left most of it on my plate. My husband's souvlaki was dry and less than average. I saw a couple of other people eating (and finishing) a plate of lamb chops. Probably that's the thing to eat... More

Really cool and d local place. The meat is so good... I even had goat for the first time of my life. And it was excellent. The family run restaurant is very low key. The daughters that take your order and serve you the food don't really speak English but do their best. You really spend a very nice evening... More

The quality of the meat and the attractiveness of the service. Apparrently, this is the best tavern of the port, while the others are rather too commercial with a poor quality of the food. For the meat lovers (it is tough difficult to eat this kind of dish every day...).

Michalios is the best choice in the island if you want local meat,recommended by the locals also offers a variety of meats in fair prices, Taste the goat and ask for home produced pitas. You won't regret it!
