Find Exquisite Traditional Dishes in Nikolas Taverna

Another seaside eatery that has been around since 1967 is Nikolas Taverna. It is situated next to one of the gorgeous beaches, Agia Anna Beach. Here you will find the best uniquely prepared Mykonian dishes, such as louza and local sausages. From squids and shrimp to moussaka, the menu is very diverse.

They serve dishes right at the beach since some of their tables are placed on the sand, so you can be as close to the Aegean Sea as possible, but you can also dine on their terrace, which is very nicely decorated. This family-owned taverna is especially praised for its good service.

Favorite Dishes in This Mykonos Restaurant – What You Should Order?

Since there are a lot of dishes you can try, we will recommend some of the best dishes on the menu that are worth trying when you leave one of the luxury villas in Mykonos to dine here. For hot appetizers, we recommend ordering baked aubergine.

Niko’s Taverna Is a Culinary Gem at the Heart of Chora

Taverna you can visit and possibly avoid calling a taxi or hiring a private driver is Niko’s Taverna. It is close to numerous Mykonos villas for rent, so you can just walk to Chora, the main Mykonian town, and find this popular spot. There is a spacious patio where you can eat dinner before heading to one of the Mykonian nightclubs.

The menu features both dishes from Greek cuisine as well as fresh fish. Another popular meal here is also the sweet baklava that has to be savored after a filling dinner. Covered with honey and pistachios, this dessert made with phyllo pastry is a sweet you shouldn’t miss during your stay.

You’ll Receive a Warm Welcome From the Staff, and They Will Make Sure You Enjoy Your Dining Experience

One of the main benefits of dining in Niko’s Tavern is the friendly staff. Since the Mykonian streets in Chora are always busy and bustling with people, the staff wants to make sure that every guest feels appreciated even though the atmosphere and the surroundings are always busy.

They try to personalize their service and make sure you are comfortable. They always offer signature dishes that would appeal to all diners, such as mussels with tomato, garlic & cheese, seafood with spaghetti or rice, and lobster salad.
