If you’re going to spend your dream summer vacation in one of the private villas in Mykonos, overlooking the Aegean Sea, you’ll probably get tired of ouzo and souvlaki over time, and you’ll want to switch things up. Here are the best Mexican restaurants in Mykonos if you want to drink sangria and eat tacos for a day.
A good thing about visiting Mykonos is that you can find almost anything you want on the island. If you want to eat gyros after a night of partying in the hottest clubs, you can find one at 5 o’clock in the morning. If you want to eat sushi at one of the beaches, right on the sunbed, you just have to walk to the nearest beach bar.
If you want to pretend you’re spending your vacation in Mexico city for a day, you can easily achieve that by buying a sombrero in one of the Mykonos shops (yes, you can find it) and drinking margaritas and sangria while eating tacos at one of the taquerias on the island.
Just like a taverna has become synonymous with gyros, souvlaki, and other Greek food, a taqueria is a restaurant that sells traditional and authentic Mexican food such as tacos and burritos. The literal translation is “taco shop.”
Taqueria is usually a small, family-run restaurant that respects tradition, just like tavernas. A great thing about going to a taqueria while you’re staying in Mykonos is that reservations are optional, not required. Here are some traditional dishes you have to try when you visit a taqueria:
Chora is the center of the island, where all the hottest places and best restaurants on the island are. So, it’s no surprise that these restaurants are also located right there. No matter which one of the Mykonos villas for rental you choose, Chora will be a 20-minute walk away in the worst-case scenario, and if you rent a car or take a taxi, you’ll be there in your favorite taqueria in just a few short minutes.
If you’re looking for a chill night out, a place where you can drink quality drinks and eat great comfort food while having fun with your friends and locals, look no further than the Appaloosa Bar. At first glance, it looks just like any other regular taverna in Chora.
It’s tucked away in the corner of a street, painted in traditional white and blue colors to fit the surroundings – it’s the perfect hidden place not many tourists know about, so you will get some privacy. Even though it looks like a traditional taverna with wooden chairs and small tables outside the white and blue doors, this isn’t a place where you will get to try souvlaki or moussaka.
It’s a place where you will taste the most delicious taco in Greece at a reasonable price. Appaloosa is located right in the heart of Chora, on Guemenio Square. Their menu is not only filled with Mexican dishes such as quesadillas, tacos, enchiladas, guacamole, and so on, but it’s also filled with other ethnic cuisines such as Indian or Indonesian.

Appaloosa has been open since 1997, and ever since the small, family-run restaurant opened its doors, it’s become a favorite spot for tourists and locals alike. It’s jam-packed every night of the week not only because of the delicious food but the overall ambiance as well.
The restaurant has a big bar that serves amazing drinks and cocktails, and they’re not shy when pouring margaritas and sangria, so it’s a good spot to go out with friends for drinks, small appetizers, and good conversation. You might not get the view of the sea or the iconic sunset, but you will get to watch people passing by the beautifully-lit streets of Chora.

If you’re looking for a five-star fine dining experience where you will spend a small fortune on a few bites, Bonita is not the place for you. They serve generous portions of delicious comfort food while offering amazing drinks.
The prices are very affordable, and the location is excellent – it’s near the church of Saint George, so it’s the perfect spot to stop by for a bite after visiting the attractions the island has to offer. The menu is short and sweet, with an emphasis on the cocktails and drinks – their margaritas are some of the greatest you will ever drink.
If you’re looking for a winning combination of delicious Mexican food and views of the sea, Azul Condesa is the restaurant for you. It’s located in Chora, and it’s an excellent place to sip on some delicious cocktails or sangria while watching the sunset after a long day in the sun.
The ambiance is beautiful and modern, with a large open outdoor balcony. Take a look at their Facebook page if you want to see some pics. The prices are a bit higher compared to the other two places, but Azul Condesa is a more upscale restaurant and the experience of your guacamole being made table-side totally justifies the price.
Their staff service is great, the food is delicious, and their menu also has vegetarian and vegan options. You could probably get a snippet of their menu on Facebook. While the reservations aren’t mandatory, ask your Mykonos concierge to help you out with the reservations if you want to be on the safe side.
