Mykonos is made for all people who want to enjoy life from the fullest and who want to experience everything from the superlative. Across in one sentence: Mykonos is very expensive, but every cent worth if you appreciate luxury. If you only want to have beautiful holidays in Greece, I recommend you to go to another place, a cheaper one. Than for beautiful holidays it is not of necessity to spend a lot of money. To Mykonos you should go when you want to spend enough money for all the luxury the island shows to us. Luxurious hotels and villas, luxurious restaurants and beach bars, luxurious shopping boutiques. I’ve never been to an island with so much luxury and very good restaurants at one place. My husband and I tried a lot, but in the end only a fraction, the offer is giant. Nevertheless, I would profess that my selection was one of the best. And today I write about my very personal recommendations for restaurants, beach and snack bars and ice cream stores on the island.
A must for every trendsetter, esthete and admirer of art and delicious food is Scorpios Mykonos, the hippest beach bar restaurant on the island. Here we took a brunch for around 40 Euro. Included was a plate with hummus, some olives, dolmades, chip, fresh and house made bread and two alcohol free cocktails.
BUDDHA BAR BEACH SANTA MARINA
One of the most expensive restaurants we took our lunch was the Buddha Bar. We ordered sushi and sashimi, litchi and coconut ice cream, a bottle of water and two alcohol free cocktails and we paid around 140 Euro. Everything was excellent, from the food to the drinks to the decoration and the view.
KIKI’S TAVERN AGIOS SOSTIS
A must for every nature lover and everyone who loves the silence, the calm and the freedom. At Kiki’s Tavern we ordered sword fish, sausages, salad, fresh and house made white wine and water for lunch and we paid around 60 Euro. I have never been to a restaurant where I could feel peace and happiness with every bite I took.
PEPPER SOUVLAKI & MORE MYKONOS TOWN
When going to Mykonos Town you find many restaurant and it is so hard to make the right choice. My husband and I decided to eat some souvlaki for lunch at one of the most stylish restaurants at Mykonos Town. At Pepper Mykonos every meal is served on a stylish black slate slab and you eat in a black and white ambience. We paid around 20 Euro for one plate with souvlaki and two soft drinks.
HAPPY O FROZEN YOGURT MYKONOS TOWN
I would say that there are many delicious and also very good ice cream shops at Mykonos Town. But one shop I remember as the most colorful and stylish one and that was Happy O Frozen Yogurt. A simple but very pretty design and with every ice cream cup you eat a lot of happiness. My husband and I bought two cups with a different frozen yogurt selection for around 10 Euro. Can’t get enough of all the colorful pictures I’ve made there.
BREEZE COCKTAIL BAR LITTLE VENICE MYKONOS TOWN
For watching the sunset at Little Venice there are several bars to choose where to drink sunset cocktails. We chose Breeze Cocktail Bar and ordered two cocktails and two glasses of white wine and paid around 40 Euro. At my opinion Breeze Cocktail Bar has the perfect view for taking sunset pictures of Little Venice and the wind mills on the other side.
ROYAL MYCONIAN RESORT & SPA POOL BAR
One of my personal food highlights was the lunch time at the pool bar restaurant at our hotel. The view was amazing. I felt like a queen, sitting there, enjoying the view over the cliffs and the sea, listening to the music and eating the delicious lunch snacks and meals. For two snacks and some water we paid around 50 Euro.
