Mykonos , Cyclades
Concierge.com's insider take:
If this place sounds familiar, it's because you've read about it in a travel magazine, heard a honeymooning couple raving about it at your hotel, or maybe seen it in your Greek island dreams. Kiki's is the embodiment of laid-back Mykonos: no phone or sign, a limited menu, and only one meal (lunch) served daily. To find it, follow the road to Panormos Bay, then keep heading north to Agios Sostis beach; you'll see cars parked on the shoulder and a trail of smoke rising from a white cube house shrouded by the gnarled branches of an ancient tree. Order a glass of chilled Greek rosé, sit on the shaded terrace overlooking a textbook white-sand beach, and help yourself to a choice of salads—perhaps artichokes with lemon, beets in yogurt sauce, or white beans with parsley and olive oil. Entrées come from the grill; the marinated pork chop, chicken thighs, and supremely tender octopus are our favorites. Kiki's is a good choice for a windy day, since the cove (and the perfectly blue water, of course) it sits above are more protected than the southern beaches. But regardless, everyone on the island makes it to Kiki's once during their stay—or ought to.
Closed mid-October to mid-April.
