Choosing a restaurant, even for a light lunch in Mykonos Town is a daunting experience not only because of the crowds, but also because so many places look exactly alike. This cafe appealed to us because it had an extensive men with pricing on a blackboard out front and a few diners had very good looking food in front of them. The place isn't fancy. Basic white chairs and tables are lined up beneath awnings and the cafe is cool and clean.
We got a table right on the corniche overlooking the boats in the small harbor and our waiter took our orders immediately. I had wanted grilled calamari and there it was on their menu, so I got that along with some fries and some fish roe salad to start. The salad isn't really a salad. It's a dip served with pita and it's quite tasty. The three of us shared the fish roe salad with soft drinks. Our entrees arrived quickly. Mary got Giro with fries and Amelia got a Greek salad that was very fresh and appealing. My calamari was grilled until not quite crispy and then cut up to make it easier to handle. The taste and texture were unlike the fried calamari that we get in the States. The fries were exceptional, perhaps the best fries I had while in Greece - light, crispy, hot.
Overall, the place was simple and quite charming. The waiters hustled folks in and took care of those who were seated quickly and efficiently. As others have stated, they aren't as friendly as you might hope. But the food is quite good and the view can't be beat. While here, we had a constant parade of people past our table as they strolled up and down the harbor front. Great for people watching.
