Although it's located on the other side of the island Fokos Taverna is well worth the drive. Located on the secluded little (nudist) beach of Fokos sits the humble little fisherman's tavern, surrounded by mountains, open space and facing the sea - nothing else. Owner operated, the vibe is honest and casual, the food is really fresh and tasty. Enjoy... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

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... More

We've been in Mykonos 5 days and have 4 left, and we are so sad that the Fokos Taverna is closing for the season! We've been twice and it's fantastic! The food is so fresh. You can even pick your own fish out! The mussels were unbelievable. The friend I'm with studied cooking in Paris and said that they were... More

We came to that beach especially for this restaurant. the ride is bumpy, but possible even with a small car. the place itself is very beautiful, but the food is mediocre. note that part of the meet is frozen and not fresh. a bit more expensive than Kiki's, the other tavern we went.

We enjoyed a relaxed lunch on the lovely covered patio sampling a variety of items from the Fokos Taverna menu. Our friend, who lives in Mykonos, suggested we go inside and take a look at what was available. It all looked terrific! We decided to get samplings of many things and enjoy sharing them amongst us. Two-plus hours later, we... More
