Argo Hotel in Mykonos

Argo Hotel in Mykonos, Greece located at Platis Yialos Beach. Our favorite place to stay in Mykonos…..we love the people, ambiance, food and location! Doesn’t get any better!
The hotel offers a great variety for breakfast. I always look forward to the toasted bread with Greek yogurt spread and tomato with olive oil and oregano on top. Other items include eggs, spanakopita (spinach pie), salad, tiropita (cheese pie), meats, cheeses, fruits, veggies, cereals, yogurt, coffe, juices and much-much more!
Food & drinks can be enjoyed poolside at Argo Hotel or beachside at their restaurant, Avli Tou Thodori. No matter what you choose you only a few steps away from an incredible view!

Nice N Easy Organic Bistro in Mykonos

I FINALLY made it to Nice n Easy Organic Bistro! I have been looking forward to it since the time I met the Co-owners Dimitris Christoforidis & Executive Chef Christos Athanasiadis.
