Camares in Mykonos
Camares Restaurant, located on the old harbor front, is one of the popular restaurants for wining and dining on the island of Mykonos. The restaurant has been around for a while and it is counted among the popular venues by classy Greeks. Many restaurants in the area are great places for celebrity spotting or for simply enjoying a tasty meal on the harbor front, while watching the crowds of people who have come for vacations on this fabulous island. The restaurant has a spacious open-air veranda overlooking the harbor and offers panoramic views of the blue waters, the sailing boats and the brightly colored fishing boats.
The restaurant has a pleasing decoration with wooden chairs and tables painted in white. The cuisine is modern Greek and some of the dishes have been tweaked to give them an international touch. Dishes like pasta, spring rolls and delicious salads are served along with local delicacies, like moussaka, or strifopita, a twisted pie stuffed with tyrovolia (a Mykonian cheese), feta cheese and tomatoes. For the main course, the seafood risotto and grilled ribs are well liked as are other traditional sea food dishes. The dessert list is small, but extremely enjoyable, and the lime pie with almonds is one of their specialties.
Good music and good wine accompanies a meal at the Camares and prices match with similar restaurants in the area. The restaurant is open all day long until late night from April through October.
