Another great summer dish is the mozzarella di “Bufala” on beefsteak tomatoes with feta cheese. Then go onto prawns sautéed in a lemon-cream sauce served with rice or for a more authentic Greek option try the stuffed grape leaves and cabbage rolls with a lemon-egg sauce called avgolemono.

For the main dish we tried a fish steak cooked in the oven with a fresh tomato sauce, served with greens. Finish your meal with a heavenly cheesecake made with no eggs.

The creative minds behind this unique concept is Dimitris Christoforidis a Greek born, American raised businessman with a great passion for healthy eating and the award wining chef, Christos Athanasiadis who’s recipes have been featured in many gastronomy and television shows not only in Greece but also worldwide.

Try dishes such as octopus carpaccio topped with Syros capers, wild oregano and pink peppercorns. In fact the capers here are fried and have a distinct flavour which is a must-try.

The savory panna cota made with traditional Myconian kopanisti cheese, sun dried figs and Greek prosciutto is something you must definitely indulge in.

The menu is not too big but the selection is well balanced and you can choose from pasta, meat and fish dishes. In fact a lot of the menu items are Gluten free and are market with a GF. We had the orzo pasta served with Santorini tomatoes, feta, Syros capers and Kalamata olives and chicken breast with artichoke, sun dried tomato and mushrooms.

Traditional Tavernas on Mykonos

Joanna’s & Nikos Place

Megali Ammos Beach

This traditional beachside taverna is located on the Megali Ammos beach a short walking distance (10 minutes) from the Mykonos Windmills.

The taverna serves classic Greek dishes. Here you will find both seafood and meat dishes. We tried a selection of starters and seafood appetisers such as grilled octopus, marinated anchovies, fried calamari, grilled pleurotus mushrooms, eggplant in red tomato sauce and refreshing lentil salad.

The prices are moderate and reservations are highly recommend as this place gets quite busy. It is definitely one of the best restaurants in Mykonos. 

 

Kiki’s Tavern 

One of the most popular taverns on Mykonos is set behind the Agios Sostis Church. This local gem opens daily at around noon and closes in the evening at about 7pm.

Making a reservation here is not an option, you just try your luck and wait for your turn to be seated while you enjoy complimentary wine under the  thatched wooden roof.  The place is electricity free and everything is cooked on a grill here. The menu serves both seafood and meat options, such as marinated anchovies, delicious octopus, as well as grilled pork chops. 

Odos Araxame 

Ano Mera 

This typical Greek taverna is located just off the square of Ano Mera, one of the loveliest village on Mykonos. Here you can enjoy authentic Greek recipes under the shade of vines.

Some of the classics which you will find on the menu: Moussaka, beef burgers served with french fries and a Greek salad with kopanisti cheese. The prices were reasonable and service was fast.  

Food Tours and Experiences on Mykonos

Bike and Wine Tour with Yummy Pedals 

Experience the authentic side of Mykonos on a guided bicycle tour. The Yummy Pedals is a concept which was started by Dimitra who has a great passion for her island and wanted to show off its lesser known parts.

All the bicycle tours start at the Vioma Vineyard which is run by Dimitra’s family.

The Vioma Vineyard is located on a site of an old monastery in Maou, Ano Mera. Based on tradition and dedication, the grapes are cultivated with the help of classical music. Yes, Dimitra’s father believes that classical music helps to grow healthy grapes on the island. Thus the wine you will be drinking has a touch of classical sounds too — impressive right?

The Fokos Tour takes you through the rural landscapes of Mykonos and during the four hours you will bike through Ano Mera and end at the pristine beach of Fokos. Please note that the Myconian landscape is rocky therefore some strength and effort is required.

The tour ends back at the Mykonos Vioma Organic Farm where we tried delicious local delights such as kopanisti cheese, dakos rusk with grated tomatoes and feta cheese as well as the louza, a cured pork fillet made on the island of Mykonos.
