Michalis the owner is not the nicest man on the island.. He's quite rude. We took fish and was very fresh but cooked not as expected. The price was ok but not so cheap for the island avarage. Try someone else if possible!

The food was ok, but this restaurant is too big and busy for our taste - comparing to the many nice, small restaurants in Livadia. The restaurant is not overlooking the sea.

Two excellent evenings spent at Michalis, where mine host is my Greek doppelganger. Good well cooked food, decent portions, and one of the few places that still sells dolmades. Friendly helpful service and wine jugs replenished as required, left us all full and very content.

It's one of the biggest tavernas in the island and you have to like that hustle and bustle to enjoy the experience. The food was OK, but nothing more. The main drawback - all dishes we chose (tzaziki, chickpea fritters, aubergine salad, even boiled potatos...More
