I personally live in Mykonos, I am Greek, and I go to the car with friends quite often. I don't usually get anything much, just a beer, mostly. But my friends have tried a lot of different cocktails there. I saw all these reviews about...drinks being spiked, and to be honest that has never happen to me. My experience in that bar has always been 10/10. The place is packed, and full of music, which is what makes it fun, with a bottle of beer, or a glass of any delicious drink. Also, the reason why they ask you to pay before you have finished your drinks, I think is because the place is too crowded, and it honestly is SO easy to leave without paying.More

Had a great time here! Small place but good music and really fun crowd. In a great area with a bunch of other bars. Vodka sodas were like 12 euro i think. Overall liked it here we went a couple of times

We had two shots here and my husband’s drink was spiked. It only came from the staff to the table. I don’t know why they would do this?! It was the most terrifying night of my life and we nearly lost him

BE CAREFUL! After years travelling the world solo to some of the most dangerous places, I honestly think my drink was spiked! There are lot's of bars close together. I came here as it was the first one I saw and there were free seats....I wish I had looked more! Staff were rude. Tables were dirty. If you sit near the front, you will get wet if the waves become high. It wasn't that busy when I arrived maybe an hour and a half before sunset but it was starting to get more chaotic as more people arrived. It had a nice ambience at first which became rowdy. I planned to watch the sunset but left after forty minutes. I am not one for rowdy places but I also started to feel ill. Everywhere has diet coke. I found it strange they did not have any. I asked for sprite instead but my god for a can of sprite when it was not that busy, ten minutes of waiting! The sprite came out in a glass, no can and tasted a bit strange. No tangy lemon flavour like it normally has. I had a few sips and felt drowsy and ill. The waitress then asked me if I could pay which was also weird, like she knew I was not well. She made some sort of story up that she was going to finish her shift. Maybe this was true but I wasn't about to tip after paying 5 EUROS for a glass of sprite combined with bad service! My hotel was a two minute walk. I got there and immediately passed out for three hours. Completely out of it. I woke up now and went out somewhere nice and upmarket for dinner, still spaced out but hungry. At least I know I am safe here.More

We were walking by aimlessly and wanted to chill for sunset. We were about to sit down in front of this bar when the waiter suggested we go upstairs to the balcony. Good thing we did because the water splashed ashore and would have soaked...us. Upstairs were a couple of tables and a small counter overlooking walkway, water, and windmills. Inside appeared to be a nice hip bar. It was pretty mellow. Decent music. Can’t imagine what it would be like in the summertime.More

We popped in first time for a drink whilst this small bar was empty. After finally getting the barman a attention we had a cocktail and beer for about 27 euros. He tried to explain some happy hour deal to me but it was so...loud I didn't hear to well. After a short while some groups walked in and the place instantly got packed with people dancing. Great if you like club music. The second time we visited was later on a Saturday night. After finally getting some drinks we sat down and was politely told the seats were reserved so we stood up again. The dance floor and bar were crammed with people, many just walking in for a dance. Twice was enough for us even though my wife likes the music. Cocktails not the best and obviously expensive.More

One drink was enough for us have a good time! We ordered the Semeli Special (Felt like 4 drinks in one) and we didn’t have to order more drinks afterwards! Small cozy place with seats looking towards little Venice.

Named the bar smelly semeli due to the fact the toilets resembled day 2 of Leeds festival! Disgusting! Especially as a small bottle of beer cost €10 and they could even be bothered to give you a nice cold glass. Staff rude! Avoid.

Tourist trap, rude stuff. Some arrogant „girls“, which are thinking they habe the most important job on the island 🙄 are trying to order you around for no reason, disgustingly rude, while you are spending tons of money for mediocre drinks at premium prices. Lot‘s...of better options.More

Delicious range of cocktails and mocktails - ideal if you want a drink with a view of the sunset and Little Venice. Very busy of an evening, but great atmosphere. Also a good selection of mocktails!

Most of the staff on this bar should be sacked and replaced as it was an horrific experience. Not only did my friend get a door slammed in her face by one member of staff but I myself got shoved not once but twice by...two separate staff. RUDE. They also give aggressive looks to most of the people there thinking they are models when in reality they are trash the way they behave. Really not impressed and won't be returning. The only thing that saved it was the cheap drink and the one bartender who actually did her job and didn't pout around. The poor lass was left alone to cater for everyone which meant a long time waiting for drinks. Additionally why the staff waitering outside were also completely useless and Abondened you when my friend sent to bar to purchase drinks as we have being waiting that long she was told to go and sit down in an abrupt manner. Never known anything like itMore

The only good part about this bar is the happy hour drinks. Staff are all so unprofessional and rude pushing past and ignoring customers, one even shut a door in my face. They also seem to think that they are too attractive to do any...actual work - it is laughable.More

We had a 2 for 1 drink voucher and even though we checked multiple times that we would receive 2 for 1 drinks, after giving us our drinks they said we have to pay full price for the first round and only have a voucher...for free drinks in the second round (which is a lot considering the drinks were so overpriced.) Since we had asked about the deal so many times this was really frustrating. The staff weren’t helpful at all and nudged someone in the back to get their attention which was really unprofessional. Drinks were watered down and 3 of the 4 drinks ordered were disgusting. Would definitely not recommend this place to anyone, put a dampener on our trip and feels like we were scammed.More
