Where to eat in Mykonos on a budget

One of the first things I always look up, when preparing for a trip to a more expensive destination like Mykonos, is where I can eat delicious food at a reasonable price. Whether you are at home or traveling, you always have to eat! But I’m not the kind of person that wants to spend 50€ on a 3-course dinner. In fact I almost never order a 3-course dinner either. Just a nice glass of wine, a main course and sometimes a dessert will do. Except if I didn’t make any plans that evening, then I can enjoy a more course dinner. Just to reward myself for spending another great day of exploring a new place. In Mykonos I found some very affordable places so keep reading if you want to know where to eat in Mykonos on a budget!

So you want to travel, but you want to do it on a budget, solo or just the way you want it? Then booking a trip with a travel agency isn’t always ideal. They often offer fixed packages, don’t cover the (less touristic) places you want to visit, don’t take into account solo travelers and all-inclusive deals aren’t what you’re looking for, if you want to explore. If you do find an agency specialized in customized trips, it costs you a LOT of money. And it happens they don’t even want to help you, because you’re a solo traveler (true story). This means you’ll have to book and plan the trip yourself. But you have no idea how or you think it’s too much effort. If you recognize yourself in this, then continue reading!
