Eva’s Garden Restaurant
Goumenio Square | N. Kalogera 2, Mykonos Town 84600, Greece
Upon searching reviews on TripAdvisor, I found this little gem which was my best overall meal in Mykonos. If fact, so much so that I ate here for my last dinner in Mykonos. The place is super romantic. You’re literally sitting in an outdoor garden of an old home. Seating is at street level and upstairs. I preferred street level for you can look up passed the greenery hanging from above and see the stars shining above. It’s such a great place.
Both visits were located with views of the kitchen. If you look closely, you can see the head chef (mom/grandmother) busy making all of the delicious food Eva’s serves its guest. My waiter was the son-in-law of the head chef – the whole place has a very family atmosphere.
Ok, so onto the food…Both visits I started with the Fried Feta, which obviously was good enough to order a second time. The dish was perfectly balanced between feta, honey and sesame seeds. Definitely order this when visiting.
My two main entrees were the Moussaka and Mussels. Both excellent. In fact, I originally searched for the best Moussaka in Mykonos, and this was the place that everyone raved about. The dish certainly didn’t disappoint. And the mussels were done uniquely with leeks and thyme. Also very good too.
On my last night, I had seen a couple tables full of locals order the Baklava. I was too full to be able to eat a full order by myself, so kindly asked my waiter (who remembered me from my last visit, and told was coming here for my last dinner) if I could have just a tiny sliver of Baklava to try. He then brings out half an order and says he’ll eat the other half later…hahaha.
Overall, this was my favorite restaurant in Mykonos. I cannot wait to return and eat the home-cooked food again set in such a lovely garden patio setting! 🙂
