Wandering up from Little Venice we stumbled across this tiny restaurant/ bar. Initially we were a little hesitant when peering into the tiny courtyard with sparse clientele. However, the handwritten menu offering a refreshingly small choice of simple dishes won us over. We were not disappointed. Eschewing the more contemporary dishes (the burgers are apparently very good) we stuck to traditional Greek fare. Moussaka, stuffed vegetables, Greek salad and a glass of house white were excellent and very reasonably priced. The bar itself is stylishly decorated with a contemporary look and would be a great place to stop for a few cocktails in the evening. Although there is limited seating available the restaurant does take reservations. It's a great antidote to the generic tavernas and fish restaurants crowding the rest of Mykonos town.

We visited Olla on a Wednesday night in mid August and were pleasantly surprised with the food and attentive service.

This little restaurant is easily missed as its in an alleyway on one of the narrow streets but it's definitely worth seeking out.

I had the chicken with pistachio nuts served with creamy mash and carrots - Devine - best dish I've had in Mykonos this year. My friend had the burger with the bacon and BBQ sauce and fries which as a previous reviewer said, the burger was home made and juicey with tastey fries also.

A new addition to Mykonos and what a treat compared to some of the mediocre food and service that seems to have become somewhat standard in Mykonos of late.

Well done Olla!

We happened across this place on our first day. The menu caught my attention. It didn't seem like the same old stuff. We were starving, so we gave it a go! It's a pretty place, not too big and impersonal and the menu has some good classic Greek dishes as well as some interesting specials. We ended up eating twice here. The first we had wonderful grilled octopus and a Greek cheese salad plus wonderful feta wrapped in filo and drizzled in honey and pistachios...yum!
The next time we had traditional Mykonos pork and some fish. The meat was a little dry but will really tasty.
The current service team are great and happy to have a chat too.

We were unsure about eating here with the restaurant being quite low down on tripadvisor but due to a review saying it was newly open we assumed this was one of the reasons for its few reviews and low ranking, so we gave it a try. And we were glad we did!!

This is a modern restaurant offering Mediterranean cuisine with a twist of Greek. We just had some bread to start and this came with butter (rare in Greece and a must for my husband!) and a lovely sundried tomato and feta cheese dip, delicious!! We then both opted for a burger served with bacon and BBQ sauce. These were clearly homemade burgers which were delicious - juicy and flavoursome! And the chips were awesome! Service was also very attentive. Keep up the good work Olla and I'm sure you will climb much higher on tripadvisor!
