“Last year was amazing, we had a very good turnout and people were very pleased, very happy, and this year we’re going to do it even better.”
That is the promise of Dimitri Konidis of Mykonos Greek Restaurant in Ocho Rios. The restaurant has relocated from Main Street and is now at a cooler, more picturesque and spacious location at Fisherman’s Point, with a view of the Ocho Rios pier.
Combining the Mediterranean ambience created by Mykonos with a scenic location, promises an awesome experience.
“Customers can expect the same amazing service, excellent food at this fantastic location. Consistency has always been our main feature here; we always try to be consistent with our product and what we serve,” Konidis said.
In 2011 the most popular dishes at Mykonos were the Coca-Cola ribs and the combination platter. This year, Konidis is promising more exciting additions to the menu.
“This year we’re planning to keep one of the favourites and change things around a bit, to give it an even bigger flair than last year. If last year was good, this year will probably be even better and, God willing, it will be.”
Mykonos is in the Savoury category and will provide a blend of Mediterranean and Jamaican foods that should make a visit to the restaurant well worth it.
