The bb robinson guide to Mykonos

Vicky Hersheson

We love the azure blue/white stone juxtaposition of Greece, and Mykonos is no exception - this is an instragramer's paradise. More than that though, it has some of bbr's favourite ingredients for a few days away:

  • 3hr flight from London 
  • Quick trip from the airport 
  • Ahhhmmaaazing food 
  • Phenomenal weather (watch the wind thou) 
  • And of course... beautiful sea and beaches

Here are our Mykonos must-do spots: 

There are a lot of hotels and service is generally great. However, we love staying at Boeheme Mykonos - gorgeous boutique hotel where the staff and setting couldn't be nicer: see @boeheme_mykonos. You won't be disappointed... 

 

Top lunch spots: 

For low-key Greek you cannot beat the iconic Kikis - no phone, no electricity so don't try and call for a resi. It's old school show up and wait your turn for fantastic local Greek cuisine at its best and phenomenal meat and fish on the grill. Plus you won't mind waiting when you see the view.... 

Another low-key local find is Fokos Taverna - off the beaten track (literally) in a beautiful cove. 

Hippy Fish: one word: 'lovely'. 

Then for those who fancy something a bit more lively.... 

Skorpios: on a spectacular cliff side - DJ, drinks, good food and a definite scene. Booking is a must. 

Alemagou: rustic chic on the beach and great for sun downers. They have a DJ and certain nights definitely turn in to quite the scene.

Nammos: the original scene - like old school St Tropez. Expect champagne and dancing on the tables until sun set. 

Spilla - which means 'Cave' - mykonos' version of Club 55. Get the sea urchins which they fish out and prepare in front of you... pretty crazy! 

 

For dinner: 

So much choice... but a couple of our favourites include: 

Katrin's: court-yard chic... 

Sea-Satin: Greek food right on the water - simplicity at its best. Gets quite lively as the night goes on... 

Finally - it's Greece - so head in to town and wonder the cobbled streets (so many shopping gems) - you'll have no trouble finding a nice spot - so far we have yet to be disappointed! 

Enjoy.

Our Favourite Ibiza Spots

Vicky Hersheson

Summer is coming and one of out favourites is the White Isle of Ibiza. An island where anything goes - chilled and hippy or high end and wild and everything in between. The choice is yours!

Here are some of our favourites - get booking!!

Es Torrent:

Ibiza's answer to Club Cinquant Cinq. Understated chic. The antithesis of the Ibiza rave culture. Reserve some beach beds on the shore and then wander in for lunch of fish and salt, padron peppers or their famous Paella to share. Get organised though and book ahead as you have to pre-order. It's worth it!

Experimental Beach Club:

Our favourite lunch spot for gorgeous Mediterranean style sharing dishes, cocktails and sangria and the ultimate spot to watch the sun set. Our tip is to reserve some beds, arrange a late lunch and watch the sun go down with a glass of Rose and some Ibiza tunes. Gets lively later in the day.

Es Xarcu:

The only thing to have here is the Padron Peppers and the fish in salt. The ultimate cliff side low-key fresh fish lunch spot. Come here for the lunch vs the sun tanning though.

El Chiringuito:

One of our favourite lunch menus on the island. You will be spoilt for choice so go hungry. Fun and lively scene with a great DJ. Something for everyone here.

Juan Y Andrea: Formentera

A MUST-DO for us is to rent a boat for the day and wizz over to the delicious Juan Y Andrea for gorgeous beaches and fabulous sea food. You can thank us later.

 

Getting later....

 

Balafia:

Famous for it's meat and lovely outdoor garden setting. Think big grill, lanterns and bohemian countryside. Lovely.

 

La Paloma:

It's like stepping in to someone's amazing Ibizan garden. Organic, boho-chic at it's best.....

For a change in pace....

Lio:

For a cabaret show like no-other (plus the ultimate warm-up for a night out) this is THE spot. High-energy doesn't cover it. Get ready to have a wild one.

 

Cipriani:

The sceney Italian can do no wrong. You know the drill....

Enjoy!

Beach Body Ready... Eating carbs and Sleeping

Vicky Hersheson

Yes really...

At this this time of year - most of us have our 'winter coats on' and the sun is just coming out... that's right - time to get out of hibernation and time to get in shape!! Sounds like a faff right?! So, we thought instead of the usual obvious 'eat less, exercise more' we're going to give you the little tips that we love to help get you beach body ready - some of which may surprise you!

Get rid of the bloat

Dry brushing, hot water and lemon first thing (even better is some apple cider vinegar in here) and as much as you can - just say no to caffeine and alcohol. Your body will thank you!

Get some sleep

You ever find that no matter what you do you can't shift that stubborn weight?! Yup - watch your hormones - it's still not widely appreciated but modern life plays havoc with hormones that cause our bodies to go in to storage mode - not enough sleep is terrible for this (also caffeine and alcohol) causing levels of cortisol and leptin to get out of whack - 8hrs a night is great for putting that right.

Not all Carbs are bad!

Whilst we are not suggesting you load up on fries, bread, pasta and pizza, having some low GI (that's glycocemic index - a low level means it releases sugar slowly in to your body) food in your evening meal has actually shown to promote sleep and regulate your hormones - hooray!  Our favourite low GI foods are a slice of whole meal bread, quinoa or some sweet potato. Plus starchy veg like peas, beans etc. Nice and filling.

Drink lots of lovely water

Mega obvious - ideally with a bit of lemon for fighting that bloat. Even better for making sure you don't throw those hormones out of whack; avoid plastic bottles - glass and filtered water the way forward....

Protein heavy breakfasts

This will fill you up and get your metabolism cracking. Our favourites are: Greek yogurt, oat bran with a handful of berries and walnuts (top tip cinnamon here is tasty and helps regulate blood sugar), porridge ideally with some fresh berries and cinnamon (avoid syrups and dried fruit - sugar spike) and of course scrambled eggs or an omelette.

Food Prep

At bb robinson we are big advocates of preparing food for the week ahead in advance. See below for one of our yummy easy to make recipes to make in bulk and freeze to enjoy through the week. Good preparation means you know what you're eating and can make with nice organic ingredients - wonderful for hormones too!

Hearty baked veggie stew:

Super easy to do and tastes great - just involves a bit of chopping. Also - you can pick and choose which veggies to use to suit you - throw ' em all in and enjoy!

Step 1: heat a large pan of boiling water with some organic vegetable stock - add to this: (chopped) courgettes, broccoli, cauliflower and aubergine. Heat until softened.

Step 2: heat up a bit of organic olive oil in a pan, finely chop some red onion and mushrooms and add them until they are browned

Step 3: get a nice big oven tray and in goes your softened veg and your onion and mushrooms. Add to this: couple of tins of finely chopped tomatoes (quantity depends on how tomatoey you like it), fresh garlic, sundried tomato paste, lentils (cooked), cayenne pepper and chilli flakes plus Worcester sauce (to your taste preference of course) and salt and pepper. Mix it all thoroughly.

Step 4: Wack in the oven for 45 mins to 1hr (180 degrees C) and to garnish some grated cheese and fresh coriander. Scrummy !!!

 

Finally - we are not saints and life is short so if you do want to have drinks or treats - don't beat yourself up just be smart with your portions and choices 1) dark chocolate not milk (darker the better) 2) have Greek yogurt and berries rather than a sugary treat 3) a spirit and soda with tonnes of fresh lime vs calorific wine.
