Nikos Taverna

Niko's Taverna is a traditional and casual restaurant with a charming outdoor patio in a lovely square near the seafront. It serves simple but delightful Greek cuisine as well as seafood, meat dishes, and salads. Dolma (grape leaves filled with rice), grilled calamari, or moussaka (eggplant or potato-based dish), paired with a good glass of wine are all but guaranteed to hit the spot on a warm summer's day.


The sheer number of eateries for an island as small as Mykonos is dazzling, with the majority of restaurants and tavernas concentrated in Mykonos Town and along the waterfront of Little Venice. Mykonian cuisine is defined by pork and fried fish dishes (red mullet and skate are most common), octopus meze (small tapas-style plates), and goat milk and onions in cooking. The Greek classics, such as moussaka, are readily available on most menus.
