We found that the place is not baby friendly, there isn't a baby station in any bathroom, the food in general is not bad but is not what I expected for the price that we pay, the final bill was around $450 with one bottle of wine. The food was average

My wife and I keep coming back here because everything is very predictable - good food, good service, warm atmoshphere. Never dissapointed. A favorite of ours and our friends. My wife's Livraki was fresh and tasty, and my lamb chops were perfectly cooked and delicious. Highly recommended.

We visited the restaurant with friends from Maricopa, Arizona and Chester, New York. The ambiance is cozy with distinctive elegant decor typical of Mykonos Island. The waiters are friendly and very attentive. I enjoyed the warm bread first served with olive oil. For appetizer, our favorite is the tender "Grilled Octopus" flavored with onions, capers and other spices to perfection.... More

Excellent food & service. It's a bit expensive but the food is more than worth it. We went for our anniversary a few years ago & go back every year on it now...as well as other times. Great place!

What a nice restaurant to enjoy lunch on a midday. Very tasteful decor with tables and booths, including blue and white tiles and mosaics and gorgeous photos of Greek islands. What I liked very much was that each booth had large pillows for those diners who aren't large and need an extra cushion to feel comfortable sitting in a booth.... More

We decided to try Taverna Mykonos because Oceanos told us it was their sister restaurant. We have been going to Oceanos for years now and it is probably our favorite restaurant in the area. They had similar dishes but with more of a Greek twist. To start off, our waitress was rude and had a terrible attitude. My parents ordered... More
