We decided to try Michos based on other reviews and their tapas menu posted by the door as we walked past. Michos did not disappoint! The tapas were phenomenal and 4 choices were more than enough to make a meal for 2 very hungry people. Try the buffalo cauliflower wings, and the local cheese with honey and arugula! Service was...

What a terrific experience. This restaurant defines gastro-pub in the best of all possible ways. Just casual enough. Fantastic bar with offerings of the classics and some specially created ones that tempt you to have one to many. Staple foods made new. All of the things I like with a wonderfully inventive approach. Their "fish of the day" was suburb.... More

Michos offers a varied selection of cocktails, food and wine, and everything I've ever tried has been delicious. I'm absolutely obsessed with their avocado margaritas and usually accompany this nectar of the gods with the kale salad, buffalo cauliflower and sweet potato fries. My husband oohs and ahhs over the wine list and chooses the lamb sliders or steak. The... More

We stumbled across this place looking for another tapas venue. We didn't realise how expensive this place was until after we ordered (and worked out the exchange rate) so just crossed our fingers it would be amazing. The prawns and chorizo was nice but the meat board (supposedly for 2-4 people) was small and average. For the price would expect... More

I am sorry you were not pleased with your experience at Michos. As you can see from the other reviews your experience is not the norm. I am not sure why you were not able to understand the exchange rate until after you ordered, I can only assume that you had just arrived in the country and were not familiar... More

The food, atmosphere and staff are fantastic. Wine and cocktail selection is superb. I highly recommend the Avocado Margarita. The group I was with enjoyed it so much we had four meals here and all were consistently delicious. A true find!

Drawn by the sign offering "Avacado Margaritas" we slipped into Michos and were treated like royalty. You enter through the small bar and dining area, then move onto a lovely courtyard where a beautifully set table awaits. Loved the margarita, but really loved the food and the atmosphere. There are lots of great dining choices in Antiqua, but we came... More

Great food! A varied and thoughtful menu. We ate at Michos a number of times during our stay in Antiqua. An easy place to want to revisit. The Steak Béarnaise was delicious - my favorite - with the Coffee Sealed Pork Loin as a close second. I am not much of a drinker, but my friends enjoyed the avocado margaritas... More
