Good meat, the rest needs improvement

We went to Michailos for dinner on late July 2015. Service was friendly, but during the busy hour the staff got mixed up. They forgot to put one of our stakes on the charcoals , and they only started cooking if after everything else we had ordered was on the table. Apart from that, the... read more

We had heard this was good, but soon wondered why. A waitress (?) gave us menus, seemed totally uninterested in her job, more like return to here mobile 'phone or whatever, food came after a reasonable wait, again delivered more than presented. Quite an unmemorable meal, only 3 other couples also dinning, the only positive factor was the manager (?)... More

The tavern is hard to find, ask the locals. It is the only meat tavern on the island. The meat crazy from cattle that is raised by themselves, very pure and very good quality. Clear food, and tasty. The service was also very humane and good. The waitress told us that since the tavern was full, we should have to... More

Excellent the first time, ok the second time (maybe the cook was missing). The grilled meat the first time was excellent.

Set away from the main town and the beaches but worth the walk to find a little gem. The young girls serving were all very friendly and helpful with our decision regarding what to order. We ate a salad, a huge plate of fantastic lamb chops, 1/2 litre red wine, 1/2 litre white wine and lovely warm garlic bread for... More

Fantastic GOAT cutlets. The best thing to try there is goat meat. Don't miss the starters. The people are very friendly. Good prices .

The set up is nothing extraordinary but the meat is really really good (we had goat spare ribs). We were a bit disapointed that our spicy cheese salad (tyrokauteri) was not home produced. The french fries were amazing as they were 100% homemade.

It has long been known as the best spot to eat beef, lamb of goat meat in the island. This year it did deliver as well. I went there twice, was not disappointed. Mezedes (appetizers) were also good, the prices right, if you have grilled meat you may want to ask for it not to be well done- they do... More
