Even if you asked for directions in advance, the labyrinth-like interior streets of Mykonos will inevitably have you asking again. Luckily, every local knows the famous dining institution named after the feisty septuagenarian-chef.
A beautiful boutique-style location on a narrow walking street is lined with whitewash tables and large picture windows looking into the legendary restaurant. With no more than ten inside tables, guests vie for the best positioning under an exaggerated ceiling and homey-décor.
It’s still a family operation, even though the longtime matriarch chef has lured new help inside the kitchen. The staff clusters around a rear bar area and staging area for field salads and savory antipasti platters.
Not known for their fresh vegetables, this is one of Mykonos’ few restaurants with a worthy array of fresh produce and select salads. A lengthy appetizer menu includes salmon arrangements, incredible garlic-braised mushrooms and traditional Greek hummus platters.
