Way overpriced and really poor quality food. Most salads were full of onions and the meat was consisting mostly of liver and greasy pork chops. 9 euro for a Greek salad should not be accepted in any restaurant let alone in such poor quality.

Mixalios proves the point the best places to eat are never in the centre. The owner of the place I was staying recommended it to me. I asked for traditional greek food with plenty of options and he immediately directed to Mixalios. I have my...More

The food was nice in terms of quality and amount. However, the service was unacceptable even though the place was quite empty. It took them half an hour to take our order and they didn’t even bring us bread or the drinks which they seemed...More

The food is very tasty. Don't order too much, since the portions are quite large. We arrived at 4.30 and although they open at 5pm they served us :-)

After 4 years we can say that Mixalios is a must. Ask for goat, pork, cheese or just the fantastic Mixalios salad and you can’t make a mistake!

We ate twice at this restaurant during our 4 night stay. Meals were served promptly and politely and were of the highest standard which we sampled during our stay in Koufonisia. Get there early to bag yourself a table though - it’s worth it.

Description
Mixalios GRILL HOUSE is a family-owned restaurant that was established in 1999 and offers a wide range of dishes with ingredients that are all locally sourced, either from our own farms in Koufonisia, but also Keros and Naxos. Mixalios, our grandfather, grew up in the neighboring island of Kato Koufonisi, where he still has his farm of goats and sheep. Every day, all through the year, at 5 am, Mixalios takes his boat and goes to Kato Koufonisi to take care of the animals and comes back by sunset. But the family also has goats on the uninhabited island of Keros, where they graze freely. Only one fresh-water well exists on the island, by the shore, and all animals descend every day from the mountains to drink from there. Between May and June, Mixalios and his son, Giannis Prasinos, visit the island early in the morning, place a large flat stone on the well’s opening blocking access to the water, and this allows them to easily capture animals waiting to get a drink! Giannis, the owner of the GRILL HOUSE, also has small farms at Ano Koufonisi, where he feeds his cows, free-range roosters, and pigs. All the animals are fed grain that is grown by Giannis himself on his lands both at Ano and Kato Koufonisi. Anna, our grandmother, makes three types of local cheese, prepared from our own cow and goat milk on a wood fire, using a traditional recipe. We serve xinomizithra, a soft, white, sour cheese, which is light in fat; ladotiri, which is a sharp, hard cheese, aged in oil; and feta. Yiayia Anna, also makes rakomelo, a sweet liqueur with raki, cinnamon and a mixture of honey and sugar. Maria, Gianni’s wife, makes “halva” pastry, which is made with semolina, cinnamon, and syrup. It is topped with her specialty, a “spoon sweet” made with fresh carrots. Enjoy your meal!
