DESTINATIONS greece mykonos Dining Sakis


On an island where food tends to get a bit pricey, Sakis is a true hidden gem for travellers on a budget. The place serves Greek fast food (pittas, gyros, salads, fries and, of course, souvlaki) and is recommended by locals who are frequent customers.


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.
