“Picture perfect!!”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We were staying at Agios Sostis so of course we went to Kikis tavern. We waited about an hour for a table. That´s the rule: you queue and wait. There is free rosé wine or water "while u wait".
The place is a dream, pergola under an olive tree ,view on deep-blue Panormos bay. The food is simple but good; you can have different mezes ,grilled fish or meat and all that in a family atmosphere.

“Little Gem”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

was recommended this restaurant from a couple of friends that have been and had to be the best meal we had in Myknonos,
very authentic food was AMAZING
you cant book this restaurant you have to just turn up and wait in the queue, after reading other reviews and a few saying they didnt like the wait it really wasnt that bad, youre meeting people from all round the world coming to eat in this small little restaurant thats in the middle of nowhere is just genius.
theres free wine and water while you wait, some moan that the wine is warm but so what, its free just add couple of ice cubes

beautiful veiw over Agios Sostis beach, got to the beach early for the day and decided to have lunch there about 3pm waited about 45mins went quick

DEFO DEFO worth the drive and wait there, ill be back!!!!

“A Small Gem of a Tavern”
Reviewed 6 July 2014

When we first arrived, there was a huge cue waiting to go in, so we came back the next day. Arrived about 12.30, we were glad we did as many people started to arrive after us. The tavern is small, very greek, absolutely loved it. The view over the small beach below is heaven. We went into the room to pick which type of salad we wanted, then sat outside enoying the atmosphere & the view. Then we ordered which meat we would like from the BBQ, also you get a jacket potato. It was a fabulous experience & is a must. The owners & staff are lovely & friendly.

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

What a gorgeous little restaurant. We heard about it from family who had been last year and decided to make the trip to try it. Fantastic! The hosts are lovely, there is a great variety of salads and the grill cooked in the wood oven, amazing! Definitely a restaurant to make the trek to. We do warn that you try and get there before 2 as the wait can be quite lengthy the later you go.

“Absolutely the BEST !!”
Reviewed 5 July 2014

Fantastic small Taverna above a georgeous isolated bay in Mykonos. Fantastic salads from the salad bar plus a small number of freshly prepared main courses and amazing sweets. Try the grilled squid - its large and the best we have ever tasted in 25 years visiting Greece.
We first visited in May 2013 during our first Island Hopping experience and stayed this year in Mykonos for two nights just so we could visit Kikis again !!!
Beware it closes about 6pm in May not sure about the high season so check before you make the journey. No reservations just queue but its well worth it.
