They have signage out front that attracts you with the ability to use their beach chairs and a food and drink combo menu. What they then do is over charge for everything including water. They also try and pressure you to order something not on the combo menu, finally any other drinks that are on the menu do not have... More

This restaurant is a real tourist trap! They attract you with a € 14,80 menu with entree, main course and wine and then charge you € 10 for a bottle of sparkling water, € 15 for a shot of Ouzo and another € 15 for a fruit juice! Drink prices are not listed in the menu just to trick guests!... More

They change the name every time to don't be identified on trip advisor. You cant see the name anywhere. Be carefully with this people. Never came back for sure. This is the worst place in mykonos. The worst thief's on all the island. The idiot in the door looks like a nice person until show the bill, after than never... More

We visited to use the free beach chairs, expecting to buy food and drinks as we did on previous days at other beach bars. When we arrived I asked for the menu, which they refused to give me (should have been a warning sign). We ordered two 'fresh' juices and a water bottle. As we lay there we watched the... More

Like all people that seem to write about this place. It's a rip off they harass people walking past get them in and rip them off I ate a light lunch platter for €14 which seemed ok ordered 2 cokes when the bill came €20 for two cokes. I objected as it seemed very unreasonable. As adjacent restaurants around €2.50... More

We have just visited this restaurant, drawn in by the 2 courses for 14.80 euros but be warned this will cost you double the price. They will offer you buy one get one half price cocktails but this is per person and this cannot be split by two people. A Long Island iced tea costs 20 euro and a 'Mocktail'... More

Expensive, you are always harassed to get you inside. Drinks astronomical high. Don't put your food inside-you come out with big chunck out of your budget. Get much nicer and cheeper dinners next door. Will not recommend it.

We stayed at the hotel adjacent to this restaurant, therefore this was the first place we went to eat as soon as we got there. After our $350 dinner, and the $25 12yr Scotch drink. We went to bed. The people at the hotel were very nice and said they had no ties with the restaurant, but we're not convinced.... More
