Fodor's Review

Overlooking pretty Platis Gialos Beach, Avli tou Thodori offers beachfront dining in a minimalist Cycladic setting, where cuisine presentation is excellent and the selection eclectic. To start, try the feta cheese wrapped in phyllo pastry covered with a light sweet sauce made with rakomelo (a spicy liqueur) and sprinkled with sesame seeds. The watermelon salad with feta and ouzo dressing is refreshing and very Greek. Great main dishes include the prawns sautéed with eggplant and katiki cheese as well as the grilled sea bass fillet with avocado sauce. Finish off with a Greek yogurt and cheesecake with honey and walnuts—light, creamy, and wonderfully memorable. The name of the restaurant translates to Thodori's Garden, a dedication to owner Thanassis Kousathanas's late father, a Mykonian fisherman whose black-and-white portraits are hung with pride.
