La Maison de Katrin
Ayios Gerasimos and Nikou, Mykonos Town
La Maison de Katrin has been around since 1971 and is one of the well reputed on the island. Located on a narrow street inside Mykonos Town shaded by the most impressive bougainvillea, the restaurant serves both Greek and French cuisine.
As a starter you will be offered large olives called Amfisa which are produced in the Peloponnese and exported to Italy. This is the only restaurant on Mykonos were you can savor this variety.
For starters try the fish carpaccio served with aromatic herbs and vinaigrette, the refreshing mussels on a half-shell topped with tomato-basil sauce are simply divine.
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.

Mykonos is a flourishing culinary scene presenting some of the best international restaurant brands — Ling Ling Mykonos by Hakkasan is one of them. Everything from the décor to the exotic menu is spectacular.
We went and savored some of their signature dishes and cocktails, check out the full review here.
Nice n Easy
Alefkandra Sq., Mykonos Chora
Set on the waterfront of Mykonos Chora right next to Little Venice and the famous Windmills as a backdrop, this all day restaurant serves organic, locally grown food.
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.
The menu features a plethora of Greek meze, healthy salads, seafood options, pasta, burgers and fresh caught fish. We tried their delicious Aegean style mussels and baby potatoes served with a fluffy cream.
For main course I went for their signature crusted salmon served with quinoa and my friend Marissa had chicken pasta.
40 Ignatiou Basoula, Mykonos Town
Located inside a narrow cobblestoned street of Mykonos Chora this restaurant is among the top favourites on the island. The restaurant is a family business run by the talented chef Pavlos Grivas and his lovely wife Andrea.
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.
Finish with a creative dessert like peach creme brûlée with mint ice cream.
Hippie Fish Beach Restaurant & Bar
Ai Yanni Beach, 84600 Box 56 Mykonos, Greece
Founded by a young businessman Nikos Xydakis, his vision for the restaurant was to add a “hippie” approach to the authentic Greek and international dishes. Hippie Fish is the location where the movie Shirley Valentine was filmed in the 1980s.
Hippie Fish is an all day destination where you can enjoy a hearty breakfast, soak in the sun’s rays, enjoy refreshing cocktails and indulge on creative dishes.
We visited the restaurant for lunch and tried their fantastic sea bass carpaccio topped with sea-urchin and seaweed, the Aegean Paella with seafood, chicken and local sausage and the stuffed chicken with Cretan cheese.
The menu features a great selection of sushi, pasta and risotto dishes, fresh fish and meats. Treat yourself to their heavenly tiramisu and a glass or two of Kanenas white wine.
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.
