Avli Tou Thodori

Niche Travel Guides

No trip to Mykonos would be complete without stepping foot on Platis Gialos beach, one of the prettiest and most popular beaches on the island. And while you’re there, you simply have to visit Avli Tou Thodori, which is one of the best beach side restaurants in Mykonos, whether its to spend the whole day and have a Greek feast or even if it’s just to sample some small plates with a few cocktails or a glass of wine.

You can’t travel to Mykonos without sampling some traditional Greek food. Avli Tou Thodori will show you how to eat like a local (albeit with a modern twist). Avli has an extensive menu but maintains the quality of the dishes throughout. Start your meal with some delicious mezze – grilled halloumi with tomato jam, eggplant with feta cheese and of course some pita breads with tzatziki. After a small break and a glass of wine, we recommend a couple of Greek classics; Lamb kleftiko and a Greek moussaka. We’ve yet to meet anyone who can say no to their baklava for dessert.

Make the most of your day on the beach and reserve a sunbed at Avli Tou Thodori in advance. If you wish to partake in their excellent cocktails (and who wouldn’t?), the restaurant can arrange a private transfer to your hotel or villa.
