After a morning spent travelling to various beaches on the island we were more than ready for lunch. The taverna served great food! Quick service! Very friendly!

We found the food to be very good and reasonably priced. It is difficult to find that combination in Mykonos Town so we ended up eating here twice. That says something. The service was good and the food was also good. I didn't say great but good enough to visit a second time.

Mykonos Town was packed full the evening we visited and Nikos Taverna was one of the few options that was able to seat us. Make no mistake, this is a busy taverna aimed fairly and squarely at the tourist visting Mykonos. However, the food was ok, and the prices fair for Mykonos Town. Considering how busy it was, service was... More

Niko's Taverna is quite a tradition in Mykonos. And I really don't know why! Located near the gracious Paraportiani Church and not far from the old fishing port, Niko's Taverna attracts tourists by the dozens! Much due to their tireless waiters that almost, nearly almost, grab your arm and drag you in! Poor food, indifferent service, reduced space between tables,... More

Maybe this resturent doesn't have a sea view but it's makes up to it in the very good Food. This is not fine dining but every time we visted the center and we visit it. If just for a quick lunch or Some nice dessert (best in Mykonos) you get very good food very quickly and for very good price!... More

Indifferent service from the wait-staff and poor quality food, Niko's is a bit of a tourist trap. My fish dish was very disappointing, and the presentation of the food was terrible. The best part of the meal was the accompanying bread. Our only highlight was when Petros the pelican (the mascot of Mykonos) strolled past the restaurant and we could... More

This restaurant was way to hectic and to much commotion for my liking. The tables are also very crowded together even compared to other restaurant's on Mykonos. The three of us eating all had different entrees and all different opinions on the food. One mediocre, one good and one poor. Also beware if it is very windy since we had... More

This was a place for locals and tourists alike. And, contrary to the typical experience in Mykonos, it didn't break the budget. About $60 for dinner, including one glass of wine each (not the greatest for house wine). Would come here again if budget is limited.
