Mykonos is a small island, but it’s choice of restaurants is vast.
Below we list the top 5 tried, tested and recommended restaurants by us at Allianz Global Assistance MEA.
Looking for a traditional Greek restaurant that won’t break the bank? Well, you are in luck, because but we found the perfect place for you, and trust us, there are not that many cheap eats!
Set back a little from the beach at Ornos you will find Lefteris Grillhouse, a traditional Greek reataurant. Here you will find local dishes such as the Moussaka, Kebabs, grilled meats and salads. The food and atmosphere is very homely and you will be welcomed in with open arms.
You will not be disappointed!
Mid range budget…
Hippie Fish, Agios Annis
Hippie Fish is Mykonos’ movie star! This restaurant was featured heavily in the 1989 British classic film Shirley Valentine and a spot many people today still visit it to see.
The restaurant has since gone on to thrive, not just off the back of the film, but for its delicious sea food offering with stunning views out to sea.
On visiting the restaurant, you can choose your dish from the menu, or head over to the seafood counter and pick your dish. Not sure what you want? The staff at Hippie Fish know everything there is to know about seafood, so let them guide you.
Tip – the red snapper is divine!
Familia, Mykonos Town
Positioned in the middle of small square in Mykonos Town, this pretty little outdoor restaurant is covered with trees and flowers. It is like you are in the middle of a garden, not a square!
This warm and welcoming restaurant offers a wide range of seafood dishes, pastas, as well as local, Greek dishes. One to tick off your list!
Kounelas Fish Tavern, Mykonos Town
This lovely, family run seafood restaurant is tucked away from the Mykonos Town port and has been here for many decades. Not only is the food good, but you are treated like an old friend.
In Kounelas you will be asked to choose your own seafood and it will be cooked up like you have never tasted before. We would almost call it perfection!
For the bigger budget
Bill & Coo Gastronomy Project
Located just south of Mykonos town and up in the hills, Bill & Coo is both a small, boutique hotel and an award winning, unique restaurant experience.
The gourmet restaurant is an interactive sensory experience of sound, vision, scent and touch, with the mouthwatering, Mediterranean inspired menu.
The setting equals the unique food, with sweeping views out from the glistening, infinity pool, across out to sea. The sunset view from here is incredible, so make sure you turn up early!
These are the favourites of ours, but there are lots more out there to choose from of course.
Which one do you fancy visiting first?
