Mykonos has so many world-class restaurants that it can be hard to pick just one to visit, but Kalita has distinguished itself enough to international foodies to easily nab one of the top spots on the island’s best.

Best of all, since Kalita is in an enclosed outdoor space, you can take a small, quiet break from the hustle and bustle of Mykonos’ Chora while you dine.
