Magical sun-drenched Mykonos, with its inviting maze of charming tiny streets offers endless entertainment. But you want to eat. Here are four great restaurants and cafes we tried that take you from breakfast to dinner and capture the hillside town's character.
GREAT GREEK FOOD
IL FORNO DI GERASIMO
Airy and modern Il Forno di Gerasimo is perfect for a lite breakfast or lunch on the go. Grab a classic Greek or Italian sandwich, dessert and cappuccino, all abundantly displayed and made fresh.
We wanted classic Greek and were told of Eva's. Ascending a stair from the street to Eva's flowery rooftop patio made dining at this lovely restaurant all the more lovely.
LA MAISON DE KATRIN
The authentic Greek cuisine of Katrin's is created and presented with the highest level of care. Its location at a bend on a narrow path adds to its charm, and provides you with great people watching. Pictured below left, Eva's garden; right, Katrin's.
The chic outdoor courtyards of Byblos create a cool vibe to enjoy their Peruvian-Japanese inspired cuisine. Byblos is comprised of multiple spaces including the dining room and open-air bar and lounge. Pictured below, the food and entrance to Byblos.
A MOVIE UNDER THE GODS
THE OUTDOOR CINE MANTO
By far, one of the most memorable nights of travel we've ever had was to discover the enchanting outdoor garden cinema called Cine Manto. After a dinner, we reclined (with wine, of course) in lawn chairs to watch ELVIS under the astrological Gods. If you're as lucky as we were, mid-film, a local wedding's fireworks will light-up the sky behind the movie screen. Heaven.
