180º Sunset Bar

Aby Saltiel, local insider and owner of Mykonos hotel Kalesma, recommends Bar 180 “because of the amazing sunset and great music.” The west-facing spot overlooks the Aegean and the neighboring island of Delos. Dishes celebrate Greek culture and include land and sea favorites such as lamb pita, tuna tartare, shrimp ceviche, and veggie platters with hummus Greek-stuffed vine leaves.


For Mykonos nightlife, Aby Saltiel, local insider and owner of Mykonos hotel Kalesma, recommends Alemagou, saying that some of the best DJs play here for the beach parties. The all-day beach bar and restaurant is an open-air style setup in the sand, with plush lounge chairs for relaxing and Greek menu items like eggplant with yogurt and grated tomatoes, gyros, crawfish orzo, lobster pasta, and fresh-grilled fish.

Aby Saltiel, local insider and owner of Kalesma Mykonos, recommends lunch at the old port at Kazarma. Located in a historic building once owned by Manto Mavrogenous, a heroine of the Greek War of Independence, Kazarma has been a favorite for more than 20 years. Dishes here give an international spin to Greek food. Think vine leaf sushi with yogurt-flavored wasabi and a tuna burger with ginger and vegetables marinated in wafu sauce.

Kiki’s Taverna

Nestled away amidst trees and rocks by Agios Sostis beach is Kiki’s Taverna. This tiny spot which has no sign, no telephone and no electricity has achieved cult status. Lines start early so go at 1pm to get a table for lunch before the crowds. Both Agios Sostis and Panormos beach next door are really old-world, informal, non-glitzy beaches (ie opposite of Psarou). The restaurant on the beach at Panormos is also fun for lunch. But don’t go to either if it’s windy. Mykono’s prevailing wind comes from the north, which is where these beaches are.

Expect surprisingly (or not surprisingly?) delicious Greek-Japanese fusion food at Koursaros.

Dinning Area at Nammos, Mykonos, Greece

Nikolas Tavern Mykonos - Seafood Restaurant

Since 1967, Nikolas Tavern has served fresh seafood and homemade specialties. Aby Saltiel, local insider and owner of Kalesma Mykonos, recommends it for a casual lunch with friends and family on the beach.

Interiors at Sea Satin, Mykonos, Greece

Sea Satin

This is the place to go for a fun Greek night out. Set under Chora’s iconic windmills by the sea, Sea Satin is a lively, large seafood restaurant, where guests can choose their own fish. But going here isn’t really about the food (you can find better seafood and friendlier service elsewhere in town). Sea Satin is about the late night parties. Go around 11pm with a big group and watch the Greeks sing and dance to the music.
