Delicacies From The Island Of Mykonos

Delicacies From The Island Of Mykonos

Mykonos has amongst its many features some of the best places to eat in the Cyclades that serve a range of foods and delicacies that will suit all palates. The island is full of restaurants with great chefs preparing traditional meals, often with sophisticated or contemporary twists. It is even possible to find cuisine from other countries such as Italy, Britain and China.

The best place to find somewhere to eat is in Mykonos Town where restaurants, ouzeries and cafes are plentiful. No matter what your budget, you will find something to delight you and keep you coming back for more, though don’t forget to sample other places as they all have something to offer.
Prices do vary considerably but they are usually displayed on menus at the entrance so be sure to check first if you are on a tight budget. For the more reasonably priced food, it is better to head for the center of town as those facing the sea, in particular in Little Venice, cost extra as a result of the great views on offer.

N'Ammos – If you are out to spot the rich and famous, N'Ammos is the place to be. Situated right on Psarou beach, the food is very expensive but worth it if you can afford the indulgence.
