Mykonos is a great Greek Restaurant that used to be near Yong Kang Street, close to Ta An park. We used to go there fairly often as their Greek food is really great. One day three or four years ago we went along for our monthly dose of Greek food and the restaurant had vanished without a trace. No advertising, no news of what happened. We naturally thought they had closed down, as so many restaurants in Taipei do. It so happens they moved. They first moved to An He Road and have now moved to Si-Wei Road. We found the restaurant quite by accident a few weeks ago when we went for a random walk in our neighborhood.
We were pleased to find them. The food is still great. The menu seems to be almost the same as what we remember and we think the venue is much better. Its more spacious than before and outside is more pleasant. We have been back three times now. Tonight we went to Mykonos with Doug and Pamela, two of our long term friends in Taipei. We also took our niece Charlene with us and we had a great time.
The decor in the restuarant is great, they have painted some of the walls with Mediterranean scenes, have some traditional musical instruments on the wall, some great photos of Greece and other interesting pictures. The restaurant is really spacious, the chairs comfortable and they even provided a high-chair for Charlene. The staff are also super friendly and very helpful.
The food we ate tonight was great. We ordered a hummus platter, lamb chops, mushrooms and a Greek salad. All the food was wonderfully cooked. Of course Doug and I washed it down with a couple of beers and finished the meal with some baklava. The whole meal set us back NTD2,300. Not bad for four people in a pretty good restaurant in Taipei. Some of the food is shown below.
