The Spilia Seaside Restaurant is the best seafood restaurant all over Mykonos, one of the most famous Greek Islands. Mykonos has been known for its beautiful nature, attractive villages, and delicious Greek food served in its iconic restaurants, such as Spilia. Mykonos has been a very attractive and dearly loved place for the rich, the famous, and the international superstars, for its unique vibe and the natural beauty all around the place. While on the island, you will be able to see cruise ships all around the coast, filled with visitors looking forward to enjoying their stay on the island, and eagerly waiting to immerse themselves in the Mykonos life.
One of the most iconic hotspots of Mykonos is a seaside restaurant known as Spilia. It is located in a unique place, the Agia Anna Cave, next to Kalafatis Beach. Spilia is by far the most peaceful of restaurants in Mykonos and has got a 30 years old history, giving its visitors a taste of authentic Mediterranean-Mykonian culinary experience.
Spilia has been known for setting a high standard for its food quality, and ensures that its visitors receive the same high quality food everytime they visit. Moreover, they understand the needs of their guest and ensure that the visitors receive their meals the way they want it everytime they order. Furthermore, what really helps Spilia stand out is the fact that they offer truly unique and special dishes, and most importantly, offer the best customer service there could be to its visitors.
Having known of an amazing restaurant such as Spilia, which has set a standard so high that it is seemingly impossible to expect any better, we decided to interview the Owner of Spilia Manos Chaniotis to know more about him and his restaurant.
Excerpts from the interview with the Owner of Spilia Seaside Restaurant, Manos Chaniotis:
How did you come up with the concept of having a restaurant built in a cave, next to a beach?
Spilia restaurant is a family business that counts 36 years of operation. The idea belongs to my family since many years ago.
What according to you helps Spilia stand out and become an iconic hotspot?
Location, location, location…“Spilia” in Greek means cave. Spilia restaurant has a unique location which makes it special. However the location is not all you need to stand out. You need to put much effort in it. For a business to succeed, it needs love in whatever you do and consistent commitment. Managing a restaurant in Mykonos considering the strong competition of the island is not easy. You have to be on the alert and give your best in order to have good food, drinks, music, service and ambience all combined well aiming for the guests to enjoy and have a great experience. To accomplish the above mentioned you need to have a good team. Your team represents you, your effort, your love, your philosophy.
How special has Mykonos been for you? Considering the success of Spilia out here.
Mykonos is my favorite place in the world. As long as I remember myself, I have had the best memories in this island. I have been here for the biggest part of my life. This beautiful place is also a factor for Spilia restaurant’s success. We are blessed to be living here and the growth of the visitors keeps reminding us. We are blessed and grateful.
Moving forward, do you intend on expanding and opening more branches in other countries?
Expanding the business in other countries is a challenge for me and is something that I think of doing in the future.
