Sunset at Kato Mili

Visit Kato Mili, tourists not only see the icons that symbolize Mykonos’s past, but also have the opportunity to enjoy a panoramic view of the beautiful Little Venice (small Venice) at the foot of the hill. This is also a special point that makes Kato Mili windmills more attractive in Greek tourists’ eyes than other windmills on the island.

Little Venice Quarter

little venice mykonos greece
Seems to be no separation between houses and sea

Located right below Kato Mili is a prosperous small residential area of Mykonos named Little Venice. This area consists of medieval houses painted in bright colors with balconies and windows in blue or red, built right on the beach with a similar style to Venice of Italy.
A place where there are no boundaries between houses and the sea, sparkling waves next to charming houses, cafés and restaurants. Built in the 16th and 17th centuries by wealthy merchants, Little Venice Quarter is located on the west side of Chora near the Alevkantra beach.

Mykonos travel guide blog: What & where to eat in Mykonos?

lunch in mykonos food-spilia
Lunch in Mykonos with a view

The first is to talk about food, basically because we find delicious food is unstoppable, but the food here is not only delicious but it is presented so beautiful that we can’t help but swoop. Of course, if talking about the price, both food and drink in Mykonos are more expensive, much more than Santorini, but still have street food for you to balance the budget.

mykonos cuisine

There are a few tips we have withdrawn from our first Mykonos trip:

  • Don’t go out to eat at rush hour, you will avoid have to waiting for the table and waiting for the food. If you go dining around 2pm or around 8pm, you will choose a nice table without feeling rushed.
  • If you choose a eatery in bustling town center or at beachside resorts, the price will definitely be high. If you want good prices, you go to the shops outside the center a little bit, but the taste is nothing to criticize. Of course, these small shops have the disadvantage of closing much earlier than in the center, so you have to check the time before going to eat. All for the budget trip.
  • Unlike cities, you can swipe cards to pay, restaurants on the island, especially small shops, usually only receive cash, the card is usually unacceptable, so remember to bring cash when you come to the island. There are ATMs on the island but not much and exchange rates are also high.

The dishes bring a deep Mediterranean flavor

Here are some restaurants and eateries you can refer to:

Nikos Taverna: A restaurant with signature red, blue checkered tablecloth with more 30-year tradition. Good service with very cute male waiters and flattering female tourists. The menu is especially rich, mainly Greek food and fish. (Address: Ag. Moni Sq. near Parapotianis, Mykonos Town 846 00, Greece / Phone: +30 2289 024320 / Hours: 11:30 AM – 1:30 AM)

Kikis Tavern: Located in Ayios Sostis Beach. Do not look for signboard or address because there is no address, even when we finish eating, we find that the food is too good and we want to ask for an address to call for next meal, they also say there is no phone. The meal here is very much and the price is very reasonable. (Address: Agios Sostis Beach, 846 00, Greece)

Nice N Easy: This shop has a nice view because it is located on the edge of the sea but slightly crowded. We go to eat a few times and once it is very good, another once very crowded so not serve well, the advice is that you just choose out of peak hours because of the beautiful view.
