We visited Tinos by ferry on a day trip from Mykonos this past week and were lucky enough to find Taverna Michalis during the lunch hour. Location is perfect in a cozy small side street with where many other restaurants are located. The Moussaka was...More

Little gem in a tiny, crooked side street. Run and cooked with love by a family. Pride of ownership you can taste in every bite. Great veggie dishes, awesome fish, and super tender meat, extremely fresh, just sumptuous. Don't miss out on this one!

Lovely little taverna down a side street in Tinos town, a few minutes from the harbour. Excellent food, with the house wine from the proprieters father (waitress's Grandad). Light fittings made from colanders and graters, quirky decor and a fun place to eat.
