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.

We have visited this taverna several times in the past. I thought it had gone downhill and that cheaper cuts of meat were being bought. The owner, I thought, was grumpy and the food mediocre. We tried it twice on this holiday but that was...More

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

Though legendary in Turkey, the sea bream (sinarit) was a poor choice in this restaurant because it was cooked rather too well to taste anything near legendary. Other dishes such as the octopus grill were nice enough. Also the wifi is a bit problematic.

We went here three times, so must have liked it! I particularly (5Star) loved the lamb on the spit for 8 euros! A whole lamb, cooking for 6 hours up there. We saw the owner buying fish off the dock, so we know it is...More
