Very reasonably priced family run taverna. If you walk into Sisi early evening Mike will be sitting outside enticing people in. Fresh meat and vegetables are always on offer. Very tasty

Food had the potential to be good but my fish was not great due to it being over cooked. The service was good, but there were only 4 of us eating so not very atmospheric.

We ate here on our first night in Sissi after a drink in Hemingway's bar and another couple recommended it. The food was nice but my wife's swordfish was over cooked a bit but my sea bream was delicious. The little starters and desserts which were complimentary is a nice touch too and the organic home grown vegetables were very... More

We went on a recommendation and we were not disappointed. Super free starters and dips and the Seabream was light and fell apart. The Kleftiko juicy and succulent. All sourced from local farm and fresh caught. The accompanying potatoes and veg in a light gravy moreish to make an understatement.

My first time at Mike's Place. I will definitely go back next year. I had a fairly simple meal of pork chop potatoes and spinach but it was cooked so well it was absolutely delicious. They also threw in some lovely little side dishes free of charge. If you visit Sissi you should definitely give Mike's Place a try.

Mikes place is a little gem. We went twice in 7 days and had wonderful rustic meals on both occasions. When asked by Mike if we wanted fish or meat we chose Black Bream wonderfully simple and perfectly cooked. The second time we went we chose the meat option (never even looked at a menu) lamb cutlets that were again... More

Was really surprised with this as you can't see much from the road but we were really happy with the service and freebies. Would go back

This is a must try eatery. I would recommend you ask Mike what his special is for the day, if it's something that takes your fancy then eat here. If not, try it another day. The specials are the freshest of meat and fish, together with vegetables from the family land. The first time we ate there Mike cooked us... More
