Cafe
“What do you do when your wife is contracted with a new job in a new town? You do what you do best! You open the best cocktail bar in the town. That's Kouchico. Honestly the best bar for chill and top quality drinks and cocktails in a nice corner of the streets of Ermoupolis. Hidden but creating a garden atmosphere that can offer entertainment for all interests. They mix the cocktails with some greek spirits too. ”

Restaurant
“Famous gourmet fish restaurant with fresh local products. Very pricey for Tinos standards, if this was in Mykonos could be ok (my own opinion!). Book your table in advance on peak season! You may wait a bit long before you are served. I don't like it personally, great location right on the sea, good food but overrated and not value for money. Arrogant staff and noisy place with children shouting and screeming . Price range 30-45€ per person.”

“Sta Vaporia is another spot I would suggest to go for a lunch or dinner. I mentioned lunch before, because the panorama that will unravel before you is magnificent. Their menu is interesting and the guys managing are very serious about what they serve. But in the end, anything with a view tastes great.”
