Great goat meat from the island with amazing roasted potatoes. The place is located apart from the rest of restaurants but this makes a great option for an authentic Greek experience. The tables on the ground and a great view of Kerro island the sunset....More

A bit overpriced for the quality of food. Didn't enjoy the food and the waitress was acting a bit silly.

Mihalios grill is a little gem hidden in the tiny Koufonissi Island. Food is excellent, and so is the staff. Mainly meat of course, but with alternatives as well for the vegetarians. Highly recommended TIP: in a busy month like August, either go before 20.45...More

One of the best traditional food restaurant I've ever tried in Greece! Not only the food, but the 'old Greece' ambience, makes it so unique. The owner, the waiters and everybody are so friendly and warm too. Too bad I had to leave the island,...More

The slow cooked lamb was sweet and so soft that was falling off the bone. The salads and all starters were good big portions and very tasty. The best part was the steak which was really big and perfectly cooked. Nice location, in high season...More

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!
