You deserve your summer vacation on The Island of the Winds to be magical. From staying in one of the private villas in Mykonos and relaxing on some of the most beautiful beaches in the world to fine dining in the best Mediterranean restaurant in Mykonos.

What Is Mediterranean Cuisine?

Greek food is a synonym for Mediterranean cuisine. The country literally runs on olive oil, seafood, and wine, how could it not be? However, while Greek cuisine is a part of Mediterranean cuisine, Mediterranean food includes a lot more than just ancient Greek food. It also includes Italian cuisine, middle eastern cuisine, French, Spanish, and so on.

This type of cuisine is considered to be one of the healthiest in the world, as well as the most delicious. The idea behind this type of cooking is that each dish is prepared with the freshest ingredients possible, making these dishes the best ones you will ever get to eat. These are some of the dishes you absolutely have to try when you visit Mykonos:

  • Anything seafood, especially fried calamari and grilled calamari, and octopus,
  • Moussaka (the national dish of Greece),
  • Baklava,
  • Greek salad,
  • Papoutsakia,
  • Tzatziki, and so on.

The Best Mediterranean Restaurant in Mykonos for Fine Dining Is Nammos

When you try to imagine the most perfect, magical fine-dining dinner, what do you see? A dreamy, magical setting decorated with candles and lights, overlooking the water while listening to the waves? If that seems like something you might enjoy more than partying in one of the hottest clubs, then we have a treat for you. If you want to enjoy a three-course meal in a romantic setting, there is no better Greek restaurant to visit than Nammos.

Nammos Restaurant on Psarou Beach Is the Perfect Spot for Fine Dining

If we have to sum up this place in just one word – it’s dreamy. Nammos is a five-start elegant restaurant on a beach that serves the most amazing food. The ambiance is just perfection – candle-lit tables with white linen tablecloths are placed right on the sand of Psarou Beach. You can enjoy the sunset from their terrace, and that is an experience you will never forget.

Nammos is not only a place where you can grab a delicious meal but also a place to be seen. Every celebrity that decides to stay on this beautiful island has to visit this place. And it doesn’t matter what day of the week it is, Nammos is always the hottest spot on the island. That’s why it could be a little tricky to get a reservation, so be sure to do it as far in advance as possible. You can ask your Mykonos concierge to help you out because going to this incredible place is an experience you shouldn’t miss out on.

What Can Be Found on the Menu?

Besides the amazing views and atmosphere, Nammos menu offers food that is so delicious it will make your taste buds dance. They didn’t get their five-star rating on the ambiance alone. Nammos offers a great selection of different dishes, and they truly are at the top of the list of international restaurants on the island.

Besides the Greek-Mediterranean food that they have perfected, their menu also offers fusions, as well as Italian and Arabic dishes you should try out. The prices are a bit on the stronger side, but it’s completely worth the experience.

If you’re just heading out of your Mykonos villa rental after spending the day at the beach, and you’re in the mood for some good drinks and small appetizers, or a light lunch, you couldn’t go wrong with Nammos. They offer everything from a traditional Greek breakfast in the morning and traditional lunch in the afternoon to a fancy dinner in the evening. So, whatever the occasion – Nammos is the right place.

If You Want to Explore More Restaurants – Visit Mykonos Town

If you can’t get a reservation in Nammos and you’re looking for another place to eat, don’t worry – the island is filled with amazing places where you can eat good food. You just have to search a bit harder.

The safest bet you will have if you want to find a quality place is to take a walk around Chora and look for a local taverna. It’s close by, so you wouldn’t have to rent a car, and you can never go wrong with a taverna. If you’re looking for something more up-scale – go to a luxury hotel for dinner.

What Is the Tipping Culture in Greece Like?

All tourists face the same dilemma when it comes to how much to tip in a new place they visit. The customs are different everywhere, and it only gets more confusing when you’re dealing with an unknown currency. For starters, the currency used in Greece is Euro, and there are usually no rules when it comes to how much you want to tip. You don’t even have to leave a tip if you’re not satisfied with the service.

But that’s very unlikely to happen in a place like Nammos because service is impeccable, and you don’t want to embarrass yourself. So here is how it usually goes – you should tip enough to round out the bill. So, let’s say your bill is 133 euros, you should leave 150 euros. When it comes to smaller bills, feel free to leave whatever metal euros you have.
