The food was great and so was the service. It is very quant and charming. The only bad part was the music was pretty bad. It was bad cover bands type.

We were recommended this restaurant by our hotel and also by friends who frequent Mykonos. Unfortunately we were left melancholic from the experience.

Upon arrival we were offered the worst table in the restaurant next to the toilets. We asked to move to the marginally better (but nearly equally as bad) table that overlooked a serving door. The table was on the edge of the restaurant which meant we had servers knocking into us for the majority of the meal. The ambience of the restaurant was nice, if and only if you had a good table.

The starters were ok, but not good. Furthermore they took 1 hour to arrive after we ordered them, which is far too long to wait. The battered prawn was heavily coated and this detracted from the taste of the prawns. Moreover the accompanying sauce was lacklustre. Flavourless.

For mains we ordered two steaks and a sea bass. The sea bass was good, yet slightly under cooked in the middle. The steaks on the other hand were terrible. We both had a few bites and left them. The preparation of them was off (overcooked in my case), whilst the taste was similar to what you may acquire from a supermarket, not a restaurant that is supposedly one of the best on the island. The waiter informed us that this was top quality meat but the taste and texture was average to poor. They were incredibly dry. Perhaps we were just unlucky but we know our steaks and these were not good.

The staff were friendly and attentive but this didn’t make up for the inadequate experience. Moreover when they were bringing the food out they dropped the sauce on the floor next to the table which went onto my fathers shoes and stained them. Luckily this missed my mother’s white trousers! They also dropped one of the starters slightly which meant it came out disassembled. This was not a major issue however.

We had one of the steaks taken off the bill which was a nice gesture but too small to compensate for the experience. It’s not about the money, but the wasted evening. When you are on holiday you only have a few evenings to make the most of and this one was our worst meal on the island.

I understand this review goes against the grain of the others below, yet it was our experience and it was very poor. If you are used to eating at top restaurants regularly then I would not recommend Kalita.

The ambience of this place was very nice due to its outside location. The quality of the food was of a good standard also. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.

Beautiful Restaurant in middle of Mykonos town. A quiet patio has about 15 tables, menu is Mediterranean Kitchen, but with choice of top ingredients.
Staff is top level!
