in Mykonos

We admit it! We are old fashioned! We remember when a Greek island holiday meant leaving our frenetic lives behind and getting back to basics. Basics like lazing on an unspoiled beach, cooling off in the clean Aegean and enjoying good food with good company at the seaside. Fokos beach is the perfect setting to rediscover these simple pleasures. Our taverna (described as a jewel of Cycladic architecture) is there to welcome you.

We are a bit remote but it is worth the trip. Follow the signs for Fokos from Ano Mera. Just keep that wind turbine on your right! The road winds through peaceful farmlands, past the dam where you may spot aquatic birds and down into the untamed beauty of the beach.

Our MENU features traditional greek fare, unique salads, grilled meats, fresh fish and homemade desserts. We keep it simple using only fresh ingredients of high quality to prepare flavourful dishes. The wine list is an interesting selection of Greek wines carefully chosen to compliment our food.

We believe the combination of a beautiful natural setting, laid back atmosphere and great food will make your visit to Fokos a memorable one.
