“These guys are great!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 9, 2013

Just spent a week in Kos staying at the Apollon Hotel on B&B basis and ate out mostly at Taverna Mike, which is only 40M or so from the Apollon hotel and the Atlantis. These guys are great. The food is authentic, good value Greek, and so is the hospitality - right down to a free local liqueur with your bill to send you on your way (and a little mosquito repellent if you've forgotten to put some on, as I did one night.). Mike and Gina really work hard and they deserve the business. Small tavernas like this are suffering in the move of the big hotels to All Inclusive and yet they have far better value to offer.

we have had 3 or 4 meals at Taverna Mike and had wonderful food served by great people. All the food is good and very reasonably priced.

“Ordinary with CLOSE sitting neighbors”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012

The menue was like other places and we found some items more pricey and less for the value. Seating was very tight, no spacing between tables and we literally sat shoulder to shoulder with the customers next to us. There were smokers everywhere in the restaurant who made the atmosphere more stifeling.The vegie musaka I had was served in a round small pottery portion with no foods on the side, however in our meal at the restaurant SUN SET down the street the same portion was served with side chips and vegie & was delicious & cost less with a great value for the price. My suggestion would be to walk another 4 min, until the SUN SET restaurant and enjoy it all-there you'll find an indoor water fountain.

“Outstanding service!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 1, 2012

Very friendly staff and our 2,5 years old daughter had very much special attention.

My wife had the snapper and it was very good. My lamb chops were good but i'v eaten better. Place was booked full and i don't wonder why.

Well worth the visit!

“Really tasty food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

We found this place on our last day - wish we'd found it earlier cos we'd have gone back! The staff were lovely, as they all are in Kos, and the food was great. We got a Greek plate for 2 and it was really tasty. I'd recommend this place to anyone.
