The 20 Best Restaurants In Mykonos 

From quaint, tucked-away cafés to chic spots with sweeping views of the sea. 

Pulling up to the port of Mykonos town on the eponymous Greek island, one can’t help but feel a cocktail of emotions. Excitement for what awaits on an island whose fame has spread worldwide. Wonder at its quaint old town and signature windmills. Awe at how this seemingly quiet town (during the day) roars to life as an international party spot come evening. Clubs, bars, shops, restaurants and gyro stands aplenty bring the hordes of party-going travelers to town, but that's not all the island has to offer. With arid landscape that contrasts beautifully with whitewashed houses and blue waters of the Aegean, Mykonos is the perfect spot for a dose of well-deserved R&R. 

When it comes to dining on an island as iconic as Mykonos, it can be difficult to know where to start. Our advice? Follow the locals' lead, as we did when compiling this list of the 20 best restaurants. 

But remember—no list of places to eat can compare to a custom-built itinerary from Journy. Leave it to the experts to build a daily travel plan from scratch just for you—complete not only with restaurants, but also activities, cafés, bars, transportation, and accommodation.



Psarou Beach, Mikonos 846 00, Greece
Nammos is, without a doubt, one of the trendiest restaurants in Mykonos. Expect crowds of visiting socialites and well-dressed locals for one of the best day-to-night parties on the island. 

Nammos contains a formal dining area (serving Italian-Greek fusion), a beautiful lounge, and an outdoor beach club. Start with dinner, a glass (or two) of wine, and then prepare for the music to turn up as this restaurant turns into a beachside club.

Food-wise, you can expect fresh, whole-grilled fish caught daily in the Aegean, sushi, sashimi, and a dizzying array of mezze—from fried zucchini to eggplant mille-feuille with feta cheese mousse.

2Scorpios Mykonos


Paraga, Mikonos 846 00, Greece
What better way is there to watch the sun set than with a cocktail in hand and live music in the background at Scorpios Mykonos? This lifestyle commune embodies the holistic message of sun worshipping hedonism with a beach club, restaurant, and boutique hotel. Indeed it’s far more than just a restaurant. It’s a self-proclaimed “gathering place” at the intersection of food, music, community, crafts, and more. 

A mix of Burning Man and DJ-curated beach club, their summer parties lure some of the best music talent to the island. Spend the early evening hours swaying to the beats, then sit down at one of the communal tables in the open-air restaurant for delicious, sea-to-table Mediterranean fare with organic, locally-sourced ingredients.
Sounds like something you’d like to experience? Trust the experts at Journy to build an itinerary from scratch just for you with all the must-see sights and hidden gems.

3Bowl Restaurant/Cafe


Ornos 846 00, Greece
Snag breakfast, brunch, or a light lunch at this health-forward café run by Australian husband-and-wife team Victoria and Robert Fisher. The menu features signature "brekkie" bowls and avocado toast inspired by the early morning meal Down Under, in addition to a diverse selection of internationally-inspired dishes that skew Mexican, Greek, Indian, and Thai.

4Tasos Taverna


Mikonos 846 00, Greece
Tasos has been dishing out classic Greek fare on Paraga Beach since 1962. Seafood is where they shine (diners walk up to the tank to select which fish they'd like to enjoy that night), but there's also a selection of charcoal-grilled meats and other Zakynthos local foods.

5Nikolas Taverna 


Mikonos 846 00, Greece
Nikolas opened the doors of his taverna in 1967 by Paraga Beach, and it has been passed down from generation-to-generation since then. Today, you can find the same classic Greek seafood that it became known for over fifty years ago.

6Raya Restaurant


Akti Kampani, Mykonos,Kyklades, Greece, Mikonos 846 00, Greece
Raya is an all-day restaurant sitting on the west coast of the island, right by the port bay near the shore of Mykonos Town. Expect elegant—but accessible—local dishes like Greek bruschetta, fried zucchini, shrimp risotto, and a slew of salads. There's also a dedicated vegan and vegetarian menu.  

7Alemagou Beach Bar Restaurant


Greece, Mikonos 846 00, Greece
Laid-back-bohemian is the atmosphere you'll find at Alemàgou, an all-day beach bar and restaurant in Ftelia. We recommend spending the whole day here, swimming, eating, and enjoying an early aperitivo.

8Nikkei Mykonos Peruvian Experience Restaurant


Mattheou Andronikou, Mikonos 846 00, Greece
Located in the center of town, Nikkei specializes in fusion Peruvian fare prepared using Japanese techniques. With small tables under a charming flowered awning, it's the perfect spot for a laid-back dinner. 

9The Liberty Breakfast Room


the liberty breakfast room, Mikonos 846 00, Greece
Although Liberty is an all-day café, breakfast is the most bustling meal at this cozy restaurant with sweeping, pinch-me-this-can't-be-real views of the Aegean sea. Whether you go savory (poached eggs on brown bread with Naxos Gruyère cheese) or sweet (Nutella pancakes, for the win!), you'll be in good hands. 

10Farma Mykonos


Ftelia, Mikonos 846 00, Greece
Part-farm, part-restaurant, Farma sources ingredients for its hyper-seasonal menu from the inner garden that surrounds it at Ftelia Bay—one that's speckled with olive groves. The menu of traditional Greek dishes changes daily.

11Kiki's Taverna


Southern Aegean, Mikonos 846 00, Greece
There's almost always crowds of locals waiting for a table at this popular tavern tucked away on the north side of the island within walking distance from Agios Sostis Beach. While they don't take reservations, the Greek/Mediterranean food is worth the wait—especially the steaks cooked outdoors in a traditional oven.

12Hippie Fish 


Agios Ioannis, Mikonos 846 00, Greece
This funky beach restaurant and bar is the perfect spot for a late lunch that'll lead you right into a dreamy sunset watch over Agios Ioannis Beach. It's not hectic, and it's a great place to relax for the whole day. The menu zeroes in on Greek food, with some international flair in the form of crab, salmon, shrimp, tuna, and veggie maki rolls.



Ano Mera 846 00, Greece
This eclectic seafood spot sits at the heart of Ano Mera Village—the second biggest town on Mykonos island that still manages to retain a charming, small-town feel. Lunch on fresh oysters, shrimp, scallops, pasta, and more as you overlook the village square.    



Akti Kampani (Old Port), Mikonos 846 00, Greece
Kazarma's variety of Italian, Greek, and Mediterranean recipes is not to be missed—think pizza, crispy veggies drizzled with honey, eggplant baked with feta, burgers, and pasta. Bonus points for its laid-back atmosphere. 



Panormos Beach,, Mikonos 846 00, Greece
Principote in Mykonos is where you want to eat every meal.

This gorgeous beach club is a dream come true, with fantastic views of the stunning ocean, comfortable beach furniture, and relaxing ambiance. Sample the delicious food of the Mediterranean as you unwind, sip on a crisp wine, and gaze out at the dazzling beach.

16Kalita Restaurant 


N. KALOGERA 31, Mikonos 846 00, Greece
Nestled in the inner garden of a boutique hotel that bears the same name, Kalita boasts quality food, a laid-back atmosphere, an eclectic crowd, and fantastic Greek recipes. Be sure to take advantage of the extensive wine list of local vintages, as well as the creative cocktails. Food-wise, don't miss the goat cheese-stuffed angel hair rolls, deep-fried zucchini, and sweet baklava mille-feuille. 

17Appaloosa Bar & Restaurant


Mikonos 846 00, Greece
Mexican and Mykonos may not sound like the most natural combination, but the crowds of locals swarming Appaloosa for a feast of burritos, tacos, and guac say otherwise. There's nothing fancy about it, which is part of its charm. It's cute, simple, and always full of Greek families. 

18La Maison de Katrin


Νικίου, Δρακοπούλου 1, Mikonos 846 00, Greece
For a family-curated mix of Greek and French cuisine, head to La Maison de Katrin. It's on the pricier side (with reservations required), but well worth it for its warm atmosphere and diverse selection of traditional Hellenic and fusion appetizers, fish, seafood, meat, and more.

19Casa di Giorgio


Mitropoleos 1, Hora 846 00, Greece
You can't go wrong with great pizza, pasta, and risotto at Casa de Giorgio—a chill spot in town for a no-frills Italian dinner at an affordable price. Located in Mykonos town on Mitropoleos Street, it's an ideal location for a post-dinner stroll.

20Sea Satin Market


Little Venice, Mikonos 846 00, Greece
For a quintessential Greek experience (think smashing plates and throwing flowers), bring the whole gang to Sea Satin for a fun night out that you won't soon forget. The food skews classic Greek, and the dancing starts later at night—so it's best to arrive on the early side if you're dining with kids.
