We have been holidaying in Koukanaries for twenty years and no holiday is complete without at least one visit to Michalis Taverna, who is a real character. Everying about the experience is authentic Greek. Michalis gets up at 5:00am to milk his goats. The feta cheese he makes himself which tastes fantastic. He also makes his own wine, and grows...

Well...what a find! If you want to have an authentic traditional Greek Taverna This is the place! This was like stepping back in time. Owned by the old Captain Michalis. What a character! No menu. Had the best fresh fish ever!!! Wonderful place.

Were attracted to this restaurant right next to the Sunset apartments where we were staying. The old guy who ownes the restaurant used to speak to us whenever we were passing. Outside on the blackboard it mentions three or four dishes at 19 or 20 euros for two persons, very good value you may think. However when we sat down... More

Captain Michalis restaurant should be on the tourism list of places to visit. It's quite an experience. The service isn't the quickest, and it's not unusual to have drunk all your wine before the food comes. I've seen a few people receiving food meant for someone else. It's quite amusing really. You can order the same meal two nights running,... More

The title says it all... The place is falling down and in the years i have been to Koukounaries it has never had a coat of paint ......... One saving grace is that the bottled beer cant be tampered with so is good value for money, unlike the rest of the place... The owner is very annoying also and will... More

Lovely place. Had seafood lunch. There were specials of the day which the waiter (I think owner) advised us, so we did and the octopus was particularly delicious. Will definitely be back when we return to the island.

We went here for a meal one night, I was intrigued by the spaghetti viagra which was with mussels, prawns and lobster and totally delicious. My partner had the king prawns which came by themselves, about 10 of them. The food looks like it is all cooked on the BBQ. There is no hurry here, we had to look for... More

It looks like an old dilapidated shed type building, but the old man is so welcoming and funny, and the food was really good and reasonably priced. We were entertained all evening, with his banter.

Run by an old guy, this experience was just surreal! Giving banter in broken English, you can't help but laugh. Service was a bit hit and miss, our drinks arriving after the table next to us who ordered after, and another table had completely the wrong dishes served, but it just seemed to fit w it's the place! Typical Greek... More
