Spilia Seaside Restaurant

One of the most dramatic dining settings on Mykonos, the seaside restaurant Spilia (which translates to cave) is perched on the rocks of Agia Anna cove by Kalafatis beach, positioned overlooking the sea. The restaurant places the focus on Mediterranean-Mykonian cuisine and in particular the seafood and fish that comes straight from the water; oysters, mussels and urchins as well as crayfish and lobster come straight from a natural sea pool.
