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.

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.
