In a a country that is renowned for feta cheese, taramasalata and moussaka, Greece’s first – and only – fully vegan boutique bolthole, Koukoumi Mykonos, is a definite outsider.

Meanwhile, none of the bedrooms feature animal products such as wool or leather.
Koukoumi’s vegan head chef Aggeliki Charami has created a rich variety of plant-based snacks, starters, main courses and desserts, free from sugar and with minimal or zero processing. So don’t be afraid to eat an extra portion.
Well, what’s on the menu? Smoked gazpacho, melon poke bowls, ravioli , meat-free burgers, black forest pastries, and peanut butter are just some of the ingenious, healthy options.
The Mediterranean restaurant also offers a no-quibbles flexible menus for guests with specific dietary requirements (from antioxidant to keto), as well as detox programmes and outside catering services.
