Where to Eat & Drink
As you stroll down Dodecanese Boulevard, the smell of hearty Greek food will waft through the air. The big challenge here will be deciding which authentic spot to try.
A family friendly place with “old country” charm to spare, Mykonos serves up all the local favorites – from flaming saganaki cheese (a memorable dining experience!) to gyros to seafood, all right along the Sponge Docks. Celebrate flavors beloved for generations at Hellas, where Chef Emmanuel’s authentic dolmades and moussaka will have you saying “opa!” before you even get to dessert (speaking of which, there’s a bakery here that serves up amazing sweets such as baklava, melomakarona and diples). Or, get your spanakopita fix at Mama’s Greek Cuisine.
Watch the sponge boats pass at Rusty Bellies on the waterfront, a bar and eatery that serves up local catches such as stone crab and scallops alongside legendary tiki drinks. If you time your visit for the weekend, you can order fresh rolls from the sushi truck here.
Looking for an adult beverage? Try locally made gin, moonshine or ouzo (a traditional Greek aperitif) at Tarpon Springs Distillery If craft beer is more your thing, sample what’s brewing at Silverking Brewing Company. Or, grab a nightcap at Neptune Lounge.
