My husband and I stopped in for a late lunch - and found waiters who sprinted and hustled constantly in serving customers seated both inside and outside the restaurant.
The chicken stuffed with cheese, fried zucchini, tomato/cucumber salad ( served with plenty of onion so be aware), chicken souvlaki and cheese croquettes were all delicious.
Portions were medium size, filled us up, and were reasonably priced.
Will go there again.
Located off the main thoroughfare by the port, so could be easy to miss. It's just one short Mykonos block off the sandy beach.

Niko's Taverna is probably the busiest and surely among the most favored tavernas in Mykonos town. Its regulars include Mykonians and longtime visitors alike. Part of the reason for its popularity (beyond its consistently fine food) is that it sits behind the town hall along a portal path between the harbor and Little Venice, providing a virtually endless parade of the sorts of passersby that make Mykonos famous. And I defy you to come at a time when Niko is not personally racing around taking orders or supervising the kitchen. Or that his daughter is not at the cash register. It's a real family operation...big time and fun.

Yes it is a tourist restaurant, yes it is busy BUT it is very good value for money. Two main courses, pork shank & fish of the day both cooked well & large portions, a desert, a litre of house white & a beer for 45 euros. The service is great, the waiters are more or less running between tables, one giving the best unintentional impression of Michael Barrymore I have seen. If you want to be hovered over by three waiter & pay three times as much for food that is half the size & tastes no better there is lots of other restaurants in Mykonos to choose from.
I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Niko's is splendidly unpretentious, while offering first rate food and good service. They are genuinely welcoming, happy to discuss the menu with all comers and the location is great, if you don't mind the odd bike being ridden through the dining area.
