Wow this view was amazing. The food was largely decent with some meals better than others. However, this place is truly worth it for the view. Mitata is a traditional Greek village in the centre of the island and the clifftop view from this restaurant...More

The view is amazing but the food is just good. Some plates are good but some other are not. The service is poor but not bad.

A marvelous little restaurant in the heart of Mitata village . Located in Mitata square with a balcony on top of Kithira. Small menu but exceptional food . Kind and friendly service.

Third time around on Kythira, third time around at Michalis. Nothing fancy, but honest home made food, ingredients from the owner's estate. The friendly welcome and the Australian accent finish it off. The fourth visit is in my agenda already.

If you're in Kythira don't miss at least one dinner at Michalis... but please be there before sunset ... see it from Michalis while your first plates arrive on the table !!! Fantastic location, very good Greek kitchen, excellent tastes & quality.

It may be that we visited on a bad day. It may be that we visited at the worst possible time for Greece - in August. However, we were rather disappointed at this much advertised taverna. The staff were trying their best, but there were...More
