My friend Nick Allot, a repeat Mykonos vacationer, told me about Kiki’s Taverna on Agios Sostis Beach. It’s not much to look at—just a simple shack down a wiggly, sandy path—but the lines of hopeful diners outside, a full hour before it opens at 12.30pm, tell you everything. The best food on the island is cooked on an open grill as Kiki’s doesn’t even have electricity, and it is utterly delicious. Order the grilled octopus with Greek Salad, then the pork chop with creamy roasted beetroot. And don’t worry about the queue because the owners will give you a free glass of rose to drink while you wait. Arrive early and stay all day.
