Out of the way - off the main street but worth a visit as he prepares all his food and wine so well. I recommend his daily specials!

Everytime I come to Crete, I come to Mikes. As one review states already, don't be fooled into thinking this is an ex-pat called Mike. Mike is a Greek. He has his own farm, fields of produce. He sources the fish locally caught that day and his specialties change every day. Mike is proud of his food and so he... More

This restaurant was listed in The Rough Guide and there are not that many that make it into those books so we knew it would be good. We passed it on the first morning when we did a walk of Sisi to get our bearings and it is up a side alley from the road and round the corner from... More

Can't fault the local food here, I asked where the wine was from. Mike's own grapes was the reply. Free starters, (plenty) 2 beef stifado and 1 litre if Mike's wine 30euros, bargain!

People tend to walk straight past Mike's place but I urge you not to as this little Taverna was one of the best meals we had, truly authentic with wonderful Greek dishes on offer that was one of the highlights of our holiday. Great food at low cost with a traditional Greek feel and atmosphere. My family loved it.

When we first walked past Mike's Place that's exactly what we did - passed it... I know in theory you should never judge a book by its cover and this is the truest thing with this taverna. I'm ashamed to say I initially judged Mike's Place by it's name to be an 'egg and chips' kind of venue. How wrong... More

Having quickly tired of all inclusive food at our hotel we went to Mike's place and weren't disappointed.Lovely authentic restaurant, extra dishes bought to our table at no extra cost, a no thrills but really tasty meal which is exactly what we wanted to experience in Crete.
