Atlantida in Mykonos
Dining at the Atlantida Restaurant in Platis Gialos you are likely to get some sea spray from the Aegean on your cheek. Part of the Hotel Acrogiali, a first class beachside hotel and located next door to the elegant Petasos Beach Hotel and Spa, on a private peninsula between the world famous beaches of Platis Gialos and Psarou Beach, the Atlantida Restaurant offers fruits of the ocean beside the ocean.
Just outside of Mykonos, the Atlantida is a romantic dining spot removed from the bustling scene of the town and main resort area. The luxuriant spa grounds, sculpted to reflect the cool austerity of a Cycladian village, offer a perfect backdrop. The entire peninsula is semi-exclusive and the privacy offered is much appreciated by both newlyweds and long-term couples on a romantic getaway. The panoramic beachside views are spectacular, whether you are under the shade of a complimentary umbrella or under the endless Mykonos stars. Platis Gialos is considered the best of all Mykonos beaches and the comfort of a seaside lunch followed by a soak in the sparking Aegean is a combination that provides the ultimate in relaxation.
A cool and breezy terrace, accentuated by a long bar, highlights the main dining area. If you prefer to enjoy a meal with your toes in the sand, the tables on the beach may be more your style. Each meal starts with a free serving of bruschetta, toasted bread brushed with olive oil and topped with diced tomato, olive and feta. The Atlantida salad, a variation of the more famous Greek salad, is highly recommended. Peppers stuffed with feta, personalized pizzas and calamari are amongst the lighter fare on offer. The main entrees on offer include fresh caught fish grilled and drizzled with olive oil, pan seared veal cutlets in a tomato sauce and chicken souvlaki with world famous Greek-style roasted potatoes and tzatziki, a yogurt-garlic-cucumber sauce, on the side.
After dinner, enjoy a complimentary dessert of fresh fruit or, of you’re too full to eat any more, as often happens, a complimentary digestive such as Mastic or Ouzo. The friendly and attentive staff at Atlantida want to make sure you meal is delicious and, as all Greeks have always believed, a good price makes digestion easier. Adding a little extra touch is just one way the good people at Atlantida Restaurant work to keep you coming back to Platis Gialos.
