Kiki’s Tavern, Mykonos

The best lunch spot on Mykonos!

The best lunch spot on Mykonos!

“Be there at 12.30 - You’ll have to wait for the restaurant to open at 13.00 but you’ll get a table.” These were the instructions given to us by friends when telling us about Kiki’s Tavern on the island of Mykonos. When we arrived at 12.30 there was already a queue, but it didn’t matter as the Landlord plies you with rose and you sit outside in the sun! There’s a small beach down the hill that you can disappear to as long as you take it in turns to queue. Kiki’s Tavern is hidden – You cant ring and book, in fact the owners don’t even have a telephone and there are no signposts to help you either!
Park where you can overlooking Agios Sostis beach and wander down the gravel road and whilst wandering down to the beach and next to the church you will find the best lunch spot on Mykonos! The restaurant is very simple. Tables and chairs are dotted around under the trees. A grill by the entrance cooks the daily specials…fresh fish, octopus, stuffed chicken breasts and the well loved pork chop. Vegetarian options shouldn’t be overlooked (even if you aren’t vegetarian!) – the grilled mushrooms are to die for alongside rustic-chic salads such as artichokes with Parmesan in lemon-mustard vinaigrette.
It was very relaxing sitting back under the shade of the trees, the glorious view yours to look out on over the beach, chilled rosé in hand and beautifully cooked fresh food for lunch. We were in no hurry to leave and Kiki’s was in no hurry for us to leave, despite the chatter outside the entrance from those in the queue.
