On Mykonos, life revolves around two important settings – the beach and the dining table. With traditional tavernas, gourmet dining experiences and bohemian beach clubs, Mykonos has something to satisfy every occasion, craving and taste.
From the achingly cool Alemagou to the best restaurants in Mykonos Town, our guide will help you to make the most of everything the island has to offer. Whether you’re seeking a long, luxurious lunch, a romantic dinner for two or a night to remember with friends, we’ll show you where to book your table.
When it comes to food, Mykonos is an island that is always changing and evolving. New restaurants seem to appear all the time and we are constantly updating (and expanding) our list of favourites. It’s our aim to bring you real insider tips, such as the dishes worth a detour, the cocktails you can’t visit without tasting and the special events you simply can’t miss. With each restaurant featured on our map, it’s easy to choose somewhere close to where you are staying.
Over the past decade, the Mykonos dining scene has grown from strength to strength – and we’ve relished the opportunity to explore all the new arrivals. In this year’s guide, we feature the most exciting new venue to open in 2020, Coya, a contemporary Peruvian restaurant with a stunning open-air dining area and two Pisco bars (one simply wouldn’t be enough). Yamas!
No trip to Mykonos would be complete with sampling the culinary delights available on the cobbled streets of Mykonos Town. After enjoying the sunset from Little Venice indulge in the very best of Greek cuisine at Kalita or M Eating, or for that extra special occasion head to Krama which opened in 2021 to try their tasting menu.
Dolmades. Moussaka. Olives. Baklava. To say we adore Greek food would be an understatement. When it comes to indulging (or in our case, overindulging) on the classics, Mykonos never fails to deliver. From our favourite restaurants to local cookery experiences, we have the insider knowledge you need for a real foodie break.
Who doesn’t love sipping cocktails from coconut shells or cradling a chilled glass of rosé under the shade of a straw parasol? When the clock strikes noon and the sun is high in the sky, you’ll find us relaxing in one of the many beach clubs in Mykonos – enjoying the bohemian vibes of Alemagou or Scorpios one day and the huge beachside sunbeds of Hippie Fish the next. We’ve sampled the menus, dipped in the shallows, and mastered the art of sunbed booking, so you can plan your perfect lunchtime retreat.
