Joannas Nikos Place in Mykonos
With all the laid back charm of a beachside barbecue, Joanna's Nikos Place serves Greek style comfort food and is an oasis of relaxation just minutes from downtown Mykonos. On the shores of the Megali Ammos beach, diners can curl their toes in the sand and watch the world-famous Mykonos sunsets while Joanna and her staff treat you like family who have just come home after a long time away.
Megali Ammos is the beach closest to Mykonos town and is just a 10 minute downhill walk from the main strip. Known in ancient times as the birth place of the sun, Mykonos is like no other place in the world for sunsets and starscapes. With such surroundings, it seems only appropriate to slow the pace of life down and enjoy some home cooked classics.
With an outdoor grill on the beach and tables in the sand, diners can feel the sea breeze on their faces as they enjoy the delicious aroma of their lamb or chicken souvlaki being grilled to perfection. Of course, fresh caught fish on the grill makes perfect sense, as the whiff of sea salt in your nostrils can only enhance the taste of the ocean’s finest fruits.
While you wait for the grill to do its work, an appetizer of spicy baked feta and olives can wake the palate for the delights to come. The onion or spinach pies are steaming fresh from the oven and the combination of crunchy pastry and savory fillings will have you groaning with pleasure. For those who are perhaps a little homesick, the fresh cut fries and customized burgers can be a welcome antidote.
With friendly smiles and genuine warmth, Joanna and her staff welcome you back as if you've never left. The perfect spot for a romantic sunset view, the essence of Mykonos is nowhere better expressed than it is here at Joanna’s Nikos Place. The fact that the food is delicious and the prices are some of the best in the area only add to the appeal of this delightful seaside restaurant.
