good place for lunch?

Yippee, we are leaving for Greece a week from today and will be spending 10 nights in Naxos and 4 nights in Santorini.

While in Naxos, we are thinking of doing the Delos/Mykonos excursion. Can anyone recommend a nice place for lunch in Mykonos? Not looking for fancy, but more authentic taverna ~ maybe 30/40 euros for 2? It would have to be walking distance from where the boat will drop us off and pick us up.

If anyone has any suggestions for things we should not miss during our few hours there, I'd love to hear them.

Maria's traditional Myconian restaurant is an authentic family taverna in a very pleasant courtyard right behind the Hondos Center, which is a white building you will pass while walking from the harbour into the center of Mykonos Town along the stone pathway next to the little beach. Very good and reasonably priced food.

If you would prefer to dine at a busier location, Antonini at Taxi Square is a great people watching spot with good service and reliable food.Between the two, though, I think Maria's is a better choice.

I wrote about Maria's and posted a pic of the taverna in my travel blog: mygreecetravelblog.com/2012/…

There are more pics of Maria's starting on page 11 of the online photo album at this link: travel.webshots.com/album/582923605GMkajR…

That album includes photos of dozens more restaurants in Mykonos, so you might see something else that captures your interest.

Tip: Avoid restaurants along the harbourside and at Little Venice. They're OK for a drink with a view, but aren't renowned for good food.

Thanks so much, Donny! You've given me lots to choose from and Maria's does sound like what we are looking for. Great pictures too!

Can't wait to be back in Greece next week.
