I had the goat, it was amazing. I also had the saganaki, it was so chewy it was like eating a sandal. It was overall a good meal and I would probably come back for the meat dishes. The location may not be easy to...More

Never found it open. I went today 25th Sept and it was closed. They normally close on 23rd. But on 23rd it was closed to the public for a private function. Not a review but be advised that the restaurant has now closed (25/9/17).

A nice restaurant, very polite people, but their meat dishes (the thing we were there for) were not as great as suggested (by previous reviewers). We tried kontosouvli (could not eat it all because it didn't taste good) and pork souvlaki (tasted average). The prices...More

One of the best places to eat, if not the best. Once we found out about this hidden grill house, we thought twice about eating anywhere else. Big portions and good prices. The goat dishes are really amazing. One of the island's culinary highlights. All...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!
