Watching, while walking to town, their outside grill, we thought we should give it a try.. Unfortunately, not our first day in Mykonos.. Next day though, we were there, no seats available outside so we stayed inside.. Mainly a fish menu, really enjoyed it and, having one more vacations' night left, we booked for the day after, so that we could taste the great looking souvlaki in a table by the sea.. It was an apocalypse, not only the main meal but everything and Joanna was one the the kindest restaurant owners out there, not only in Mykonos island, everywhere.. She took photos of us, she took us to the beach to show us the view and photoshooted us again, she treated us as if we were her best clients.. The prices were pretty much the same with a cheap modern looking restaurant in Athens, no more than 20-25 per person, including wine or beer, but no cheap modernism here, only real great food!.. I try to visit different places whenever I can, but if I choose to go back to Mykonos and not somewhere it will be because of Joanna and her restaurant..

Been there 3 times out of our 4 night stay on Mykonos. Great mezes, gread traditional main courses, good house wine. Place directly on the beach, with perfect sea view and great sunset view. Quite good prices comparing to Hora town restaurants (especially in Little Venice). Really loved it.

We were introduced to this traditional Greek taverna in 2009 and must say this is our favourite restaurant on the island by a mile.

Joanna has an excellent personality and always provides a very warm welcome.

The taverna is hidden well away from the crowds at a beach location on the southern outskirts of Mykonos town. Food quality and service is truly excellent and authentic. Highly recommended to reserve a table as number of tables is limited. There is live music on a Thursday night.

All in all an excellent taverna and one that I will always visit during a holiday in Mykonos.

It was the last day of our holiday and after eating in less than half-full restaurants in Mykonos Town, we decided to give Jo's a shot and we can safely say we were not disappointed. Whilst we had to wait about half an hour at the bar, it was definitely worth the wait as the food was delicious. Appetisers such as the fried aubergines and courgettes, fish croquettes and stuffed peppers were amazing. Mains of char-grilled chicken, pork and fish, were simple, but executed well and tasted great. we just about had room to share some of the desserts, with baklava, home made cheesecake, chocolate mousse and honey pie rounded off the meal perfectly. Service was very good and there were 3 guitarists on the next table singing old Greek songs, which ended up with impromptu Greek dancing from some of the customers. Great value for money and superb experience, food and atmosphere. Thoroughly recommended.
