Everyone raves about this beach side taverna for good reason. The drive takes you back in time, the view from the taverna across an unspoiled vista is unparalleled on Mykonos, and the homemade food is as good at it gets anywhere. By the way, the grill man is a maestro of his art. A real treasure.

The taverna is a 15 min drive from Ano Mera, part of the way is dirt road but does not need a 4x4.

The taverna is located by the Fokos beach which is best when it is not too windy. The taverna has grilled meat and fish with a huge variety of salads and home made deserts.


Excellent grilled caramari and meat balls.

Go to the beach, pop in for a delicious lunch and go back to beach again. Staff is friendly and quick to serve.

We have been going to Mykonos for years and each time we make a point of coming back to this wonderful taverna. The salads and dips selection is unsurpassed, all created with fresh virgin produce in combinations that make your mouth water. One must try as many of those as possible. Do not overdo it though, because the portions are generous. This year, we ate the best vegetarian Mousaka we have ever tasted. And all does not end there. The deserts are also absolutely amazing and, if possible, not to be missed. And all this is on a nearly deserted lovely beach of the island of Mykonos. Not to be missed!!!

We went on a busy day in august. Long waiting time for order - we found somewhat overrated and quite expensive, too; 3 sodas, bread for 3, 1 tzatsiki, 1 greek salad and 1 broccoli salad; €32

After spending a day running around the island on an ATV, my girlfriend and I wound our way out to Fokos beach with many a wrong turn and close call. The paved road ended, and we continued down a well worn dirt path. With other tourists becoming fewer and far between, we feared we may find ourselves stuck out in the middle of nowhere, but pressed on nonetheless. Eventually the road ended at a little beach cove, with one restaurant and no more than a small handful of people in sight. The smell of grilling fish quickly reminded us that we had forgotten to eat lunch, and so we stopped for a bite. The setting was incredibly picturesque, and the food absolutely fresh. The literal catch of the day was sitting on ice, and we needed only point to the fish of choice for it to be filleted, seasoned, grilled, and served. The experience was the highlight of our short stint on Mykonos, and will be a certain repeat if and when we ever have the opportunity
