“My regular hangout when I feel like driving.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Fokos is worth the visit just for the ride out there. It's two miles along a dirt road running between virgin beige brown hillsides along side a reservoir The beach is just as unspoiled, and the taverna sits in a cove so picturesque that it served as the location for the film "Kings of Mykonos." As for the food,it's all home made from the freshest ingredients, and their grill man is about the best on the island. From burgers to fish, none better.

“Fresh grilled fish...next to the beach”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 November 2013

a stunning secluded cove, the food is delicious and worth the rather bumpy journey (we did it on quad bikes), its pricey...in that fish was about 20+ euros pp depending upon the weight, we ended up having a delicious meal with a selection of starters and wine for around 80 Euros. Would certainly go again, but check the wind direction on the island if you are planning in having a day on the beach and eating lunch..

“Lovely, out-of-the-way setting with gorgeous views; good and friendly service and great food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2013

Located on the north shore of Mykonos on a dead-end road, this taverna is definitely out of the mainstream of things, and so worth the drive. The menu items were rather pricey compared with other tavernas, but not outrageously so. Food is cooked to order, and the Greek salad was the best I had during a month of traveling through three islands.

“Something diffirent and with high quality in Mykonos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 October 2013

Fokos Taverna is one of the best family run restaurants on the island. It offers good service with very friendly and polite staff. The food: I enjoyed the light summery salads that are not too hevy and in particular the brocoli, lentil salad and many more from the selection display. On the grill they serve mushrooms that are very tasty and squid. There is a very big veriaty for vegetarians but also grilled meats aswell. The location is far away from noisy beaches and the natural environment is left pure. I recomend as an experience closer to the real beauty of Mykonos.

“The best Taverna on Mykonos stunning location the most delicious food on the island!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 October 2013

Off the beaten track but well worth going to is Fokos beach, a stunning secluded cove with crystal clear waters. Fokos Taverna is the only place on the cove which makes it so special, the food is delicious, fresh cooked, the staff are super friendly, the Taboule best I have ever had!
I visited twice on my 10 day trip to the Island, I will be heading back next year and recommending to all my friends. Fokos Taverna and the beach are Jewels on the beautiful Island of mykonos.
