Where to eat
Restaurants of different styles and cuisine co-exist on this small piece of land in the Aegean sea and serve the most delicious dishes a traveller would want to taste during his holiday.
Bakalo is set in a traditional Mykonian house that dates back to the 18th century with a courtyard garden. Located in the Lakka neighborhood in the Old Town on Mykonos, the restaurant serves traditional-style food, using local ingredients.
On the menu, you will find dishes such as Mykonian spiced cheese with peppers, Cycladian cheese dumplings with tomato and lemon dressing, marinated octopus from Syros, and baked mushrooms stuffed with pork and gruyere cheese from Naxos.
Mykonos Blue Myth
The Blue Myth Restaurant is one of the two restaurants at Petinos Beach, a 4-star hotel located on the beach of Platis Gialos, one of Mykonos most famous beaches. Ideally located right on the beachfront, the restaurant has a fine ambiance and large windows that offer fantastic views of the bay.
Diners can breathe in the fresh sea air, while dining off a wide choice of Mediterranean dishes, as well as an interesting selection of international dishes, with everything from homemade pizza to filet steaks. The restaurant is famed for its candlelight dinners that set the mood for a romantic evening. Bottled wine (red or white), or wine from the barrel is offered in the restaurant’s wine list to complement their fine spread.
Coo Restaurant is a modern industrial design that has successfully retained a Cycladic style so as to blend with the architectural style in downtown Mykonos. The restaurant is located in one of the most extraordinary settings and has grown in popularity with its ambiance, fabulous fare, and high-quality service.
The cuisine offered is world class and the highlight is the sushi, whose quality rivals the best on the island. The Kobe Beef Filet, a world-famous delicacy made from cuts of the Wagyu cattle that have been raised by following certain strict traditions (including a daily massage for the cattle), is one of the specialties at Coo. Their wine list is equally impressive with several unique collections that can satisfy even the most discerning wine lover.
The music keeps changing according to the type of customers and the mood of the moment. Often, when the mood at Coo is upbeat, the lively music transforms the restaurant into a club. The restaurant is located in Matoyiannia in Mykonos Town.
Fokos Tavern is located on the secluded beach of Fokos in the bay of Myrsini, to the north of Mykonos. The tavern is the only building on the shore and serves up tasty meals that are quite popular with people who come here.
The cuisine is Greek traditional and dishes are prepared from fresh local meat and fresh fish from the day’s catch. Although the menu is simple, the taste more than makes up for it. Barbecued octopus, grilled fish, Greek salads, pork and lamb dishes, home-baked bread and homemade desserts are some of the specialties at Fokos. An interesting list of Greek wines complements the lovely meal.
Unlike other beaches that are overrun by cafes and taverns with waiters creating a racket trying to entice guests and loud music often spoiling the moment, Fokos Restaurant stands alone and offers a lovely meal in a relaxing ambiance. There are comfortable chairs on the beachfront where guests can relax after a swim in the sparkling waters of the Aegean and enjoy a traditional Greek meal at the seaside. The beach is a bit out of the way and is not on the Mykonos map. To get there, one has to travel to the village of Ano Mera, take a turn and follow the signs to Fokos Beach.
