I dont know how many of you have ever taste a souvlaki, but this is our favorite fast-food.
I'm not going to describe what is a souvlaki but you have to taste it, and actually the first day of you visit in Greece.
This tip can help you save a lot of money, cos probably then you'll only want to eat souvlaki. And the cost of one souvlaki is from 1,30 to 2,00 euros.Men will need 2-3 of them and women 1-2.
Anyway in Mykonos the best place to taste it is Alexis shop.Easy ti find, as it is in the only place a taxi can get you in the town. Manto square. It is on the back side of tasxis stop and very difficult not to find.
Favorite Dish: Ask one (or two or three) with everything. In greek; ena me yiro apola.
Just go down the few steps from Mykonos Grand to the beach. There you`ll find two or three local tavernas, Giorgo`s smack in the middle.
You may enjoy seafood, but much more Greek specialities, an incomparable Greek Salad and a carraffe of Retsina, the local dry and somewhat bitter, resined wine, accompanied by original Greek music (by the tape, of course).
The best Greek Salad I ever had, immediately by the sea in an incredible blue and natural environment. 2 Greeks and half a litre of retsina will set you back for about 25,- USD
Favorite Dish: Greek Salad - see yourself !!
One of the few simple honest places to eat on Mykonos.Situated in Agios Ioannis this place offers a wide variety of greek and meditteranean cuisine.Open for breakfast snacks pizza pasta and probably the best FRESH Gyros on the island.Very helpfull stuff always a happy feeling.Mix crowd ages races here everybody is special!!open until late for dinner as well serving fresh meat grilled on coal home made pies and cakes.the owner very friendly and always there to chat about everything you want to know.Here you come as a tourist you go away as a friend!!!
Favorite Dish: my personal choice is the pasta in this place especially the bolognese!!its fantastic also the home made sweets if there is enough room left....The why is very simple:its always made on the spot ,the meat is fresh and you get what you pay for nothing less
This is a GREAT place, and it is a little off the beaten path in Mykonos Town. We ate in several different restaurants but the service here was SO friendly, SO friendly we came back three times. There is a real nice atmosphere with sort of covered outdoor seating, the prices are very reasonable, and the food was great. Especially loved the Mousaka. I really wouldn't miss this place if I were going to Mykonos again...
Favorite Dish: Mousaka!!!!!!!!!
The best well kept secret in Mykonos for food is Kiki's tavern in AgiosSostis beach.In a small terrace, covered by a huge tree and overlooking the Panormos bay,this place offer very a very tasteful small menu. Since there is no electricity, there is a selection of a lot salads, of different kinds and also there is a bbq providing meat and chicken fillets only.These come with a very tasty sauce and you also can order baked potatoes...
For sure is a very good place and really worth a visit...
Need of transportation to get there and also try to avoid on peak-period the times between 3.00pm to 5.00pm cos you are going to wait a lot!
Along the frontage of the harbour here at Chora are the expected collection of terraced cafe/bars which are all pretty much of a one-ness, all catering for the casual tourist, whether just for a coffee or a beer, or a full-blown repast. As always the trick is to avoid the ones that aren't busy, then just choose the one with the friendliest waiting staff. Mourayio fitted the bill perfectly and avoiding the obviously touristy bits on the menu made for an ideal relaxed late lunch watching the tourists and the harbour life doing what it does with a pleasant sea breeze taking the edge off the afternoon sun.
Favorite Dish: Here I tried the deliciously meaty Mykonian sausage, along with taramasalata, Greek salad and bread, washed down with a couple of bottles of Mythos. For less than 25 euros this was exactly what I wanted, excellent way to refuel before wandering round the town proper.
The dishes from this restaurant seem like they come straight from the sea that is only a few feet away. The men who serve you are very attentive and have really great thick greek accents.
Favorite Dish: My husband adored the sea urchins.. I was boring that day and ordered a delicious gyro!
The first thing that drew us to Katrin was the decor. We were wandering through the little shopping lanes at the port when we came upon the most enchanting restaurant I can remember seeing for a long, long time. We couldn't resist, so in we went.
Favorite Dish: The next thing that caught our attention were the exorbitant prices on the menu. They were really sky high, so we decided to keep our order to a minimum (as you do!). We had grilled chicken with a lemon sauce and steamed vegetables which was really delicious, a bottle of wine and one dessert. Total bill 120 euros. Still and all it was a great experience. The service was good, the food excellent and the staff very welcoming. I would return, but I would save up for it first.
Maria's Garden is just that. It is a beautiful garden which is well hidden amongst the alleys.
The restaurant is big and has indoor dining as well as courtyard dining in the garden. It is really very attractive and very relaxed.
Favorite Dish: Service was great, food was good. We had steak with salad and special sauce (house speciality). Prices were not cheap but not as over the top as Katrin where we went the night before. I would definitely recommend this one, especially if you're looking for something special and romantic. Oh to be young again!
Nikos Tavern in Porta Mykonos has the most delicious Greek food and salads and the freshest seafood on the Island of Mykonos.
The atmosphere is magnificent and the service is Excellent!
Plus the owner Nikos is a fantastic chef and a heart of Gold!
Favorite Dish: Fresh Lobster and calamari!
In a town with taverns located side-by-side, Mykonos has many choices for food. Seafood and classic Greek dishes are specialities. Id probably say that the easiest way to find a good taverna is to check the menu and then see how many tables are taken. One of our favourites for authentic Greek food was the large and ever-popular Niko's Tavern. Just in from the harbor, it's has daily specials (roasted lamb, fish, for example), seafood and pasta and Greek dishes, all for 5-10 Euros (and beers are just 2 Euros). For appetizers, the dolmades and in particular the humus are delicious.
I will remember this restaurant in the Mykonos Grand Hotel for a long time. I don't think we could've had a more romantic setting for one of our dinners on our honeymoon. From the lobby of the hotel you are in suspense about where you are going because you have to go down three sets of elevators to get to this beautiful restaurant. It is open and airy and you have a gorgeous view of the sea and a perfect place to see the sun set.
Favorite Dish: The dish with filet mignon and lobster tail..mmm mmm.. we also had a really great blush wine from mykonos called amethystos
Baboulas Taverna is situated just a couple of minutes walk from the port at Mykonos.
I ate here during a short lunchtime stopover in Mykonos in May 2006, having arrived on a ferry from Syros and waiting for a hydrofoil to Naxos. With only 90 minutes to kill before the departure of my boat, Baboulas Taverna was in the ideal location for me to have a quick lunch.
Baboulas is in an excellent location, with views over the port and across the harbour to Mykonos Town and the town beach. It looks like a traditional Greek taverna with blue wooden tables by the sea, checked tablecloths and a colourful wooden boat outside with a line of squid drying in the sun.
However, in my opinion, the food here is very overpriced! You are paying for the nice setting and the convenience of being so close to the port. If you're staying in Mykonos and not in a hurry to catch a boat, then I wouldn't recommend eating here. Mykonos is generally very expensive compared to other Greek islands, but you can still find much better value food in the back streets of Mykonos Town.
The menu contains mainly seafood dishes, such as squid, octopus, shrimps, mussels and various fish. Main dishes generally cost upwards of 15-20 Euros.
Other menu options include salads (5-8 Euros) and just a few meat dishes (souvlaki and pork chops).
Despite having asked for my bill twice, and despite the waiter knowing that I was in a rush to catch my boat, he still seemed more interested in flirting with his female customers than getting my bill. He hurried up somewhat when I got up to leave......but he'd blown the chance of any tip by this stage!
Favorite Dish: I opted for:
Shrimp cocktail - Cost: 9 Euros
A relatively small dish of small shrimps (which had clearly just been defrosted) in a thousand island dressing on top of a bed of lettuce. Topped with one large shrimp in its shell. Ridiculously overpriced at 9 Euros.......average quality and not a lot of it!! My dad makes a much better shrimp cocktail than this one!
Mythos beer (500ml bottle) - Cost: 3 Euros
Cover charge: 1.50 Euros - including 3 slices of bread, but no butter!
A lovely setting, a convenient location if you have a boat to catch........but absolutely dreadful value for money!!! Go elsewhere!!
A nice and clean restaurant if you are a Sea Food Lover &U&I. Though it is very difficult to find local seafood in Mykonos because most of the Sea food which comes here is imported from Asia ! but this restaurants has got fresh items and they give Sea food per Kilo rates.
Favorite Dish: They offer many dishes but my favourite was Zucchini - stuffed with Mykonos cheese and Fennel and Sofrito (Corfu style veal with parsley, garlic and vinegar).
This was a Cafe restaurant just under our room. They made everything on order. The atmosphere was very lively in the evening as many locals come here to eat.
Favorite Dish: The food available is all touristic - anything which u want but very less local. The prices are cheaper then other places and its owner is the same of the rooms above (Angela's rooms)
