We rented a car while staying in Mykonos. We set out to Sostis Beach and had a great time. The one other beach we wante to get to was Fokos mainly because of what we had read about Fokos Taverna. If you are driving there and you think you are lost, keep going...you are on the right path. The restaurant... More

I recently visited Fokos Tavern with my girlfriend and we tried the pork steak and the mykonian sausage. They were both very good: Tasty and well cooked. The location of the restaurant is calm and quiet and the view of the beach very nice. What I didn't like in the place were the fairly high prices (although expected for Mykonos),... More

The concierge at our hotel suggested Fokos to us after our beach day. Finding it was a bit of a pain, but it was definately worth all the unpaved roads. If you're going to make the trip to this restaurant, the grilled fish will make it worth every minute. Hands down one of the best and juiciest grilled fish we... More

Popped in for lunch after enjoying the beach for a few hours. The taverna isn't much to look at from the outside and the beach is a bit of a drive down a dirt track but don't let it put you off! We had a salad which was huge, fresh and tasty and the savoury pie which was delicious. The... More

This simple yet gorgeous tavern mixes chilled out beach vibe with some of the best food on the island. The salads are divine, think broccoli with bacon, yoghurt, almonds and raisins, warm fresh hummus, quinoa, fresh fish and meat on the barbecue and delicious cold wine. The view of the sea and the jagged mountains are breathtaking and the whole... More

We went to this beach by recomendation, since is one of few beaches without crowd, sunbeds and umbrellas. I read the reviews about this restaurant on tripadvisor. I really must recommend it. You should go there if you prefer really tasty food in gorgeous atmosfere. Nothing fancy and wanna be style, just really nice food beside naturally beautifull beach. Divine... More

So... Whilst the food was good, we were asked to move on from our table to make way for the Italians. Only to hear them later tell a Greek couple to relax and take their time. Clearly English speaking people money isn't as good at this tavern! Try better next time guys... Australians pay money too...

Being one of the few greeks around we felt embarassed by the comments that the waiters made between themselves for foreign customers for no reason. Apart from the service "climate", the food was nice but a bit more expensive comparing to other mukonian taverns. Fokos beach nearby was calm and attractive without any wind!

The menu has limited options because everything seems to be fresh. The service was good but not very professional, the owner was sleeping at a table, the waiters were discussing loudly (commenting on a client's small order...). Prices are about 75€ per kg for fish and around 12€ for meat portions

Having read lots of reviews saying that this place was amazing for lunch we went with really high expectations. Possibly because of the reputation this place has it was incredibly busy and the staff were running around trying to cope but were obviously struggling. The young male waiter was very friendly despite doing 20m sprints every few seconds to try... More
