Cocco Mykonos: Italian on the Waves

The new Italian bistro, courtesy of the Belvedere hotel, is riding high on the Mykonianwaves, spectacularly located on the seafront with the best views on the island. Cocco Mykonos is a petite restaurant in Little Venice, intentionally designed to feel intimate, much like a personal discovery you’d hate to share with anyone but your nearest and dearest.

Partially hosting the legendary Caprice in years gone by, nostalgia is intricately entwined with this historic property, although Cocco is here to stake its own claim in the heart of downtown Mykonos. At the end of an afternoon walk or the beginning of an enchanting
evening, a stop at Cocco’s blue bistro tables facing the Mediterranean sea is enough to take you on a journey. The menu offers small bites for a leisurely drink, while delectable meat and fish, refreshing salads, light-as-a-cloud pizzas and rich pasta dishes will round out an
unforgettable Italian dinner.

The hand-picked ingredients are in perfect harmony with the tasteful interiors, designed by creative architecture studio Concept Boarding. The soft curves of the furniture, the crisp white tablecloths and the superior tableside service create an intimate environment that somehow manages to offer many different experiences: a well-equipped bar that appears almost chiselled out of rock offers signature cocktails andhand-picked wines, while the dining room extends across different rooms on various levels,with a wrap-around view of the island, glimpsed through windows and doors.

One night atCocco Mykonos is enough to convince anyone they’re at the right place at the right time, especially when the light starts to fade and the flaming disk of the sun dips below the horizon, creating a unique tableau vivant. Cocco’s flavor universe is completed by a dessert menu full of summery temptations, digestive drinks and cigars that will tempt you into
making your next reservation before you’ve even left your table.
