It didn’t matter who we asked, if we questioned ‘where is the best restaurant on the island?’ the answer would always be ‘KIKI’S!’
Pearched on the edge of a hillside, overlooking a quiet and quaint secluded bay in Agios Sostis, is this charming little restaurant.
With no electricity, no phone to take reservations and a first-come-first-serve policy, this is truly a unique dining experience.
It is only open between peak daylight hours (for obvious reasons!) so you have to get there early, half an hour before it opens an excitable queue starts to form.
It’s really no bother though as the restaurant has you covered with free wine whilst you wait… Perfect!
Once seated, your senses run wild.
From the beautiful setting, the incredible views, the sound of the sea crashing beneath you to the smell of charring meat on the grill, its hard not to be overwhelmed by the experience.
The beach shack prepares all of its deliciously fresh fish and meats on the open grill alongside a selection of mouth-watering salads. It’s simplicity at its best!
We started by heading inside to discuss the salad options with the lady of the house.
Freshly prepared that morning you can choose from a huge array of bright and colourful veggies.
We chose a half and half small plate, one side with sliced artichokes in a lemon and herb dressing and the other with green beans, tomatoes and onions.
All super fresh and super zingy!
From the grill menu we opted for juicy portobello mushrooms delicately cooked in lemon and garlic.
Feta, wrapped in a foil bag with tomato, chopped peppers and lashing of olive oil.
This is seriously good, the cheese goes warm and gooey and spreads perfectly onto the bread they provide.
We’ve already recreated this delight at home on the BBQ!
And finally, grilled chicken thigh with the tastiest, crispiest skin around (even rivalling our slightly burnt shoulders!).
All fish and meats from the grill menu come with a side of jacket potato, dripping in butter.
If this hasn’t tickled your tastebuds, it was all washed down with crisp, ice cold, white wine.
Once we’d finished we decided to wander around the area for a while and walk off some of that food.
Right beside Kiki’s is possibly the most beautiful church we stumbled across whilst in Mykonos.
Perfectly white and showing off in front of the bright blue sky. We stopped here for a while and soaked in the moment.
If you’re visiting Mykonos and looking for simple, home cooked, Greek food in a breathtaking setting then head straight to Kiki’s, we promise you it won’t disappoint.
