5 best restaurants in Mykonos
Our favourite places to eat. Enjoy awesome food and stunning decor.
A Greek institution
Simple and rustic, with no signs to lead the way, Kiki’s is one of Mykonos’s most famous restaurants. Set on Agios Sostis Beach, one of the lesser-travelled, unspoiled parts of the island, it is renowned for its barbecued meats and fresh-caught fish, followed by favourites like chocolate brownies. An outdoor, shady terrace of a venue with a thatched roof, it offers an all-day lunch popular with locals and beach-ready hipsters. Don’t miss the classic Greek salads with giant olives and fresh feta.

From the Nobu master
Set within the Belvedere Hotel, beside the glamorous outdoor pool, Matsuhisa is the Mykonos branch of Nobuyuki Matsuhisa's international Nobu sushi empire. Open from May until the end September, it offers an elegant dining experience and a more traditional omakase bar, bento-box appetisers and a Sunset Bar serving cool cocktails. Be sure to sample signature dishes such as Tiradito, Black Cod with Miso and Kappa rolls. Heaven for sushi-lovers and the ideal introduction for newbies to Japanese cuisine.

Best beach club
In our opinion the trendiest beach restaurant in Mykonos, Nammos can be found off the beaten track on the edge of the popular Psarou Beach. Split into a formal dining area, lounge with bar, and a beach club, it is home to tanned staff who cater to every need of holiday-makers and the local jetsetters relaxing on sun loungers. Treat yourself to Greek meze, sushi and house salads washed down with chilled prosecco, and languish in the VIP treatment from your chaise longue or in the sophisticated open-air restaurant.

Take a break from Greek gastronomy and seek out Marechiaro, with its selection of Italian delights. Sourced from the venue’s own herb and vegetable garden, ingredients are fresh and authentic, used to top traditional Neapolitan pizzas baked in an authentic wood-fired oven. A beautiful location from which to enjoy views to Mykonos Town and the sun setting over it, the restaurant also offers a menu including octopus salad, steamed sea bass and grilled rib-eye steaks.

Barbie on the beach
Just minutes from downtown Mykonos, this bustling taverna offers a beachside barbecue with an outdoor grill and tables in the sand – perfect for those sunny days and long sunsets. Sample lamb or chicken souvlaki, or mushroom-based dishes and spicy baked feta for veggies. Joanna herself is often around to recommend the steaming spinach and onion pies, setting up the warm atmosphere that matches this outstanding eatery’s location.
