Located within the beautiful cave of Agia Anna, this restaurant is visual perfection. Peacefully nestled on a natural platform on the rocks over the sea, it offers one of the best dining experiences on Mykonos.
A secret passageway leads to this garden restaurant cast within an open-air dining room. Best at night, the restaurant doesn't even begin to perk with life until 11p.m., before becoming a full-on dance lounge at 2 a.m.
You'll need a car and some patience to find it, but Kiki's is one of the most famous eateries on Mykonos. Located in a less traveled part of the island, it offers delicious seafood dishes. The simple rustic space is no more than a communal kitchen, with a covered outdoor terrace.
Belvedere Bar at the Belvedere Hotel
Hosted in the Belvedere Hotel, this bar is the perfect place to begin the evening. Through the luxurious hotel’s stone walled gates, one walks into an impossibly charming bougainvillea courtyard.
Built on the sea in the traditional Cycladic way, Caprice bar is cosmopolitan and unique. Its gentle architecture is a perfect blend of innovative setup style and classic elegance.
180 ° Sunset Bar Mykonos
A relaxation lounge spot dedicated exclusively to sunsets. Inspired cocktails coexist with a modern space and chill-out music, with a result that fascinates. And all this, with the magnificent view of Delos.
Located down a dusty road on the edge of popular Psarou Beach, it's the trendiest beach restaurant in Mykonos. The restaurant is divided between a formal dining area and beach club. Book a table for lunch on a Saturday around 3 pm and enjoy the fun party that starts around 5 pm!
Sea Satin Market
Directly under the famous Mykonos windmill, its location couldn't be any better. Book a table for dinner during the weekend and party like a local: dance the “sirtaki” and break plates as a real Greek. A bit touristy, but fun.
A mix of Burning Man and DJ-curated beach club, it will win you over with its incredible sunset parties. Both a beach club and a restaurant, reservations (at least two weeks in advance) are essential.
San Giorgio Hotel
Sandwiched between Paradise and Super Paradise, it’s the perfect address for those that look to exploit the local beach club and nightlife options that are all within walking distance. Traveling to the main village will require a rental car.
A very easy-going bed and breakfast, with modern studios and a communal garden area to enjoy your breakfast. It’s just 5 minutes away from Mykonos Town by car. It has free parking, free wifi, and the staff is polite and available for anything you need.
This sparkling new hotel opened its doors in early June. Located on Platys Gialos Beach, it’s the place to go to if you are fond of luxury design interiors.
