We took the recommendation for dinner tonight from some locals (who ended up driving us home from Kiki’s) – Niko’s Tavern, “the best taverna in Mykonos”, apparently. Hmmm…
Tables spill over the streets, it’s packed and quite possibly the most well-known restaurant in town. But it’s late and we’re hungry so we just take a seat up on one of the balconies.
I order the ‘dish of the day’, a spaghetti with lobster. It’s a baby lobster (fresh at least – we’ve noticed a lot of seafood here is frozen to keep up with the demand). The spaghetti is al dente but the sauce is a little watery.
My travel buddy is having the moussaka – she couldn’t come to Greece and not have moussaka. Although it arrives looking like a brick on a plate, it’s obviously homemade (like something her mamma would make – if she had a Greek one?!) and it tastes nice. Nothing amazing, but it satisfied the need – moussaka, tick.
It’s been fun people-watching the narrow busy streets, and we love the chandelier made from old salt & pepper shakers (very cool), but eating with the masses is not for us.
Score: 5.5 Plates (out of 10)
