“Good food,good service and realistic prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2013

Been going to Ornos off and on for over 30 years, eaten all over Mykonos but this place is currently top of the list. Good food and service no fancy wine list just quite drinkable red or white at 9 euros a litre.

“Couldn't ask for better atmosphere.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013 via mobile

Believe it or not there are several wonderful restaurants to choose from in the little town of Ornos on Mykonos. My husband was pulled towards this one because he read in Fudor that they have great carrot cake...in Greece? He can never pass up on carrot cake, even in Greece. Unfortunately tonight they seem to be out of it.
We of course stayed to enjoy a very nice dinner and the sound of the ocean waves. We had the best grilled Greek cheese, a standard Greek salad and for dinner I had the Fudor recommended egg pasta with baby shrimp & carrots and ouzo cream sauce. It was very rich and tasty but peppered with shrimp shells. My husband had the fried Kalamari and fried potatoes, he loved them. The potatoes were simple but incredible. You will enjoy your meal here, wether from your beach front lounge chair or under the cabana.
We ended our meal with a local favorite the served. I don't know what it's called but it was good.

“Enjoyable”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Our family and friends enjoyed our first dinner in Mykonos at Ithaki- we found the meals reasonably priced and very tasty- although my lamb chops were very bony, more bone than meat I'd say. We also liked the ambience of the place.

The next day we rented beach chairs out the front of the restaurant right on the water's edge, and enjoyed having our cocktails and lunch delivered to us while we lazed on the beach all day. It was a fun day!

“Unexpectedly Good in Ornos”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2013

This was the first meal we had in Mykonos. The restaurant was highly recommended by our hotel. It was a little tough to find because we had not gotten our car rental yet and we had to walk, but eventually, we did find it. We were warmly welcomed and given a choice seat directly behind the masses of lounges and umbrellas (how anyone on Ornos Beach can even MOVE is beyond me). We ordered a plate of sausages (three large grilled local pork sausages) and the gyro plate (disassembled gyro with all the components, to be eaten either as a whole or piecemeal, at the patron's option). Both came with fried potatoes, which were OK. But both of our entrees were otherwise very, very good. In fact, we ordered a Greek salad and could not even finish it.

Service was prompt and courteous, we had a great seaside table and the prices were very reasonable, for Mykonos. Frankly, for a beach-front restaurant in this busy place, we weren't expecting much, but were pleasantly surprised.

I'd definitely go back for a well-priced meal and they also had live Greek music, which was really enjoyable. The ambiance was terrific, nice lighting and very friendly folks!
