For most, September means back-to-school, back-to-work and back-to-reality which means its the perfect time for savvy and travelers with discerning taste to pack up and go! Europe saves its true charms for September, and Mykonos is no exception. More options on where to stay, easier to make last minute dining decisions without reservations and better deals available are just some of the perks. A devoted foodie, I particularly enjoyed ‘An Eating diary from a perfect week in Mykonos‘ by my trusted friend and true expert, Heather Warburton. Below is a small representation of the article.

There are many reasons to go to Mykonos—the color of the water alone, the music, and the stunning villas—but undoubtedly, the food scene will convince you. If you intend to eat light and vegetarian, you’ll find no better place, and then again, if you’re more into feta cheese and baklava, you’ll be just fine too.
I recently spent five days in Mykonos in early July, and in addition to Katrin- family-run restaurant featured above these are some of my favorites:
Built into a cove of Agia Anna, next to Kalafati beach, Spilia is one of the more elegant restaurants on island. The restaurant is multi-level, giving each seating area an intimacy occasionally lacking in Mykonos, and the soft blue water is truly at your feet (half our table took a dip between courses). Their lobster pasta is one of the signature dishes, and a waiter caught and opened sea urchins in plain site, ensuring total freshness. Can’t miss item? The fudge-like chocolate cake. Trust me, you want it.
Other top restaurants recommended are Interni for dinner; Scorpios for dining and partying; Kiki’s Tavern, the romantic Avra and the Belvedere.
