Our guide to dining out in Gay Mykonos

In 1960, Mykonos was a dirt-poor fishing village. Things have changed a bit since then, but it still does great fish. Check out the fish taverns by the old harbor. There are lots of tempting places to eat, with many restaurants set in lush, verdant gardens, overhung with flowering bougainvillea and grapevines.

Kounelas is next door to the Porta Bar. It’s a very small, almost hidden in the labyrinth of streets behind the port of old Mykonos Town. Simple but perfectly cooked fresh fish is the main attraction.Make sure you book a day in advance. Lovers of fresh-caught fish will enjoy eating alfresco at this lively local taverna.

Mediterraneo, is next to the post office. A small, outdoor, northern Italian restaurant with plain tables and chairs. Exquisite cuisine at very reasonable prices, wonderful ambience and a late crowd – 10pm onwards. For serious foodies only.

Niccos Taverna is a Mykonos institution with a large outside seating area with a huge variety of fresh fish. Reasonably priced and great fun, especially if you’re in a group. With a large outdoor seating area in a pretty and lively square behind the town hall, this inexpensive taverna is one of the most popular dining spots in Mykonos Town.

Sea Satin Market is at the foot of the famous five windmills. A very expensive restaurant serving seafood. The location is all: waves crashing, floodlit windmills… food can be hit and miss.

Interni is a contemporary and stylish restaurant and lounge in a lovely internal courtyard, hidden down a quiet alley off Matogianni Street. Its dramatic cactus-flanked staircase guarantees that celebrities are able to make a grand entrance. Expensive European fusion food.

All the restaurants listed above are popular, however for our top 7, check out the list below!

  • What to Eat & When?

    Evening meals are taken between 9-11pm. You’ll find a large number of ethnic restaurants serving amazing food. But there’s plenty of fast food if you need
    a quick bite. Souvlaki, also called Gyros, is the Greek equivalent of a hamburger.

  • Greek Food we Love!

    Make sure you sample Mykonian specialities, such as kopanisti (salted white cheese), soumada (fermented almond cordial), amygdalota (almond confectionery)
    and ouzo (aniseed spirits).
