Really enjoyed the linguini lunch special. Topped with prosciutto, salami, roasted tomatoes, garlic shallots and spinach. Served with garlic bread. Very delicious. The large portion fills you up.

A good place in the old town where you can find tasty local food (not fast food or pizza as many other places offer). We enjoyed musaka, rabbit and lamb in yogurt, the starters were also delicious - we tried dolma (rise in grape leaves)...More

This may well be the smallest restaurant in Chania, hence the name ‘To Mikio Tavrrna’ which means ‘The Little Taverna.’ But this restaurant has the biggest heart of any restaurant in town. Nevertheless, obviously reservations are a must! Come and check out the restaurant that everyone is trying to get into and talking about! PLEASE NOTE: MIKIO WILL CLOSE FOR THE WINTER ON FRIDAY, OCTOBER 13, 2017. The staff looks forward to seeing you in the spring!
