Mylos means windmill in Greek. And this old windmill in Santorini, perched on the cliff of the traditional village of Firostefani, has lent its name to one of the finest cafe-bars and restaurants on the island.
After an impressive renovation that has elegantly fused the building’s traditional character with modern minimal aesthetics, Mylos café-bar and restaurant is now a sophisticated all-day meeting point, never failing to astound its guests with spectacular views and sublime gastronomic delights.
The mesmerizing Caldera, the endless blue of the Aegean and the imposing submerged volcano provide the perfect setting. The charismatic chef and the skilled pâtissier provide the perfect culinary experience: delicious dishes from a wide Epicurean spectrum, which fancifully blend tastes from the modern international cuisine and mouth-watering desserts which are temptations in their own right. An amazing wine list that includes fine international and regional labels-with an emphasis on the Santorinian renowned varieties- comes to add to the enjoyment.
In the morning exquisite home-made breakfasts are served till noon, while afterwards you can enjoy a lovely lunch from the light a la cart menu. And if you really want to treat yourself to a fabulous dining experience, nothing compares to a candlelit dinner at Mylos.
This is a place that ticks all the boxes: "stunning surroundings", "gorgeous atmosphere", "divine food" and "excellent service", guaranteed to please the most demanding gourmands and oenophiles alike.
