You can get good but cheap gyros & souvlakis for about €5 per person at places like Jimmi's Souvlaki and Sakis grill house. Sakis has some platters that cost a couple of Euros more but offer a substantial serving of food.

Fato a Mano has excellent food & service as well as some well-priced daily specials -- usually a 3-item special that includes a salad, a main (like grilled calamari, souvlaki or moussaka) and a glass of wine for around €12. Marco Polo taverna offers similar specials (but I think the food is better at Fato a Mano). Opa taverna at Goumenio Square also has daily specials. As you stroll around Mykonos Town, you can check other tavernas and restaurants to see what deals they have on offer.

You should be able to get meals and drinks for two people for well undeer €100 per day. Make sure you check menus and prices before you take a seat at a restaurant or taverna. Most places do post the menu out front so you can see whether what they offer fits within your budget.

To save $$, buy some beer, wine or alcohol at a minimarket and enjoy that at your hotel room (especially if you have one with a balcony and a great view) before going out to dinner.

There's more information about Mykonos restaurants in this post on the Mykonos forum page: tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g189430-i401-k5465…

The information there is from last year, but almost all of it still applies for 2013.

After coming back in June this year and found the Alcohol to seriously bump up the bill. So get your drink at a shop, theres one called the cellar i believe just up from fabrica, excellent choices of wines and great advice.

If you brought €2000 you will spend it, if you bring €500 you will make do too.... its all down to you :-)
