Spilia Seaside Restaurant & Bar
Agia Anna Kalafatis, Mykonos Town 846 00, Greece
This ‘simply stunning’ restaurant is a hard act to follow, hidden away from the beach it can only be reach by a rickety wooden jetty built into the rocks at the end of the beach but you won’t be disappointed when you turn the corner.
Located and built into the rocks at Agia Anna beach (near Kalafatis the more quieter part of the island) Spilia offers the freshest of fresh dishes such as, lobster pasta (apparently Spilia’s signature dish) fresh giant prawns, Octopus and squid both caught that day, right in front of the restaurant and can be seen hanging out to tenderise in the beautiful Mykonian sunshine and there’s even a beautiful sea water rock pool built right into the middle of the restaurant, were if you’re brave enough to order the Sea Urchin Salad, the waiter will literally pick them out fresh from the pool, splice (with a special sea urchin splicer) plate and dress them right there and then, well you can’t get much fresher than that!
The restaurants setting is the stuff of movie sets, incredibly romantic, tucked away and with its own special atmosphere, it’s almost a seaside cave nestled amongst the sea splashed rocks with views you can look at all day long.
Spilia is the epitome of “hidden gem,” and although it’s a bit of a drive (25/30 minutes) from the main town, its defiantly worth the trip.
Reservations are ‘highly’ recommended, it’s cool, sophisticated and its ‘very special’ what are you waiting for!
