Visited mikes as it was quite close to the hotel we were in, and ended up thoroughly enjoying our meal. Quirky interior, great staff and the food was not only great but the fastest service we've ever come across! Mike was very hospitable and really helpful when it came to explaining and recommending dishes. We'd definitely recommend the moussaka and... More

We stumbled upon Mike's one scorching lunch time. It kinda looked like a hippy shack, loads of plants, some sort of 'Go Green' t-shirt and relaxed atmosphere. Ordered a beer and perused the menu with no intention of eating, ended up with the sharing platter full of never-before-eaten tasty things. Mike himself served us and as he could see we... More

After reading so many great reviews, we thought we'd give this Taverna a go as it was only minutes from our hotel. To be fair, we had light lunch of Tuna salad and Tzatiki and a couple of cold drinks. However, Mike took our order and then told us that for next time, they do some really good Greek food,... More

Walked past this Taverna for few nights until our last night. What a mistake we should have gone there the 2nd night or when I had enough of AI. Compared to some places on the harbour this place blows them clean away. The flavours reminded me of classic Greek dishes and were simply amazing not bland attempts at them in... More

A really enjoyable place. Great food, lovely welcome. A chance to learn a few Greek phrases helpfully displayed around the restaurant...and some delicious home-made products courtesy Gina, Mrs Mike I presume!

Lovely place close to where we were staying. Most places have someone trying to pull you in off the street but not here. Lovely food and people.. Had a lovely traditional Greek feel. Large selection on the menu and images to show exactly what you will get. I highly recommend this Taverna and if in Kos again I will return... More
