Nachtessen

Very nice service and the food was really succulent. The tuna carpaccio with green beans very refined; the Wagyu beef tender and cooked rear as ordered, together with grilled octopus which was perfectly soft. Great food, not cheap but value for money. The ambience and the music is great

Over the winter of 2015 this Restaurant has changed owners. It is still ok as a restaurant but it has none of the charm it once had. Of course I accept I may be biased because I frequented the restaurant under previous ownership and management for quarter of a century. But reviews prior to 2015 should now be ignored.

We really couldn't understand why this restaurant was quiet. We had a fabulous meal with an amuse Bouche followed by salmon miso and tuna salad! The food wAs truly excellent and service efficient and friendly! Don't walk passed it. One of our best meals in Mykonos.

When in Mykonos always come back to Lotus two, three or four times during the trip. Warm and welcoming, perfect setting for people watching and great food - and there is no one like the fabulous Elsa!! Looking forward to returning and salivating at the thought of the wonderful "Mushrooms Lotus" . . . .

This is an iconic restaurant in Mykonos and I remember my first dinner there in 1983. It was terrific to go back a couple of months ago and dine there and see that it's just as fantastic now as it was 31 years ago. The owner is a wonderful lady named Elsa who is extremely friendly and lots of fun.... More

It's been a little over two months since we were wending our way around Mykonos' shopping district and, luckily for us, chanced across Lotus Restaurant on a Tuesday evening. This cozy restaurant is so charming and inviting we just knew it was the right place when we spotted it. We didn't have reservations so were quite delighted when Elsa said... More

Tiny central restaurant managed by foreigners (?). From outside it looks quaint with its big bouganvillae tree for roof. Food is not as good as I thought and the area is very busy, not serene. I had better experiences in the island. We were not impressed by the zucchini moussaka.

First visited Lotus 25 years ago and have been back several times over the years. Still does a great job, and still run by the same couple. Nice location in town, good for people watching, and decent quality food at a reasonable price.

I'm going to agree with the poor reviews on here, and it's such a shame. We came earlier in the evening and were the first to arrive. Waiting staff were not particularly friendly or welcoming, bad night? Starters came out quickly but it got worse from there. I ordered moussaka which took a long time to arrive and was luke... More
