Complete with a courtyard garden, wishing well, archway and of course the thick white washed walls. This was the setting for intimate and cosmopolitan nights on Mykonos.

The Team

Three friends who live and love Mykonos, Nikos Nanou, Egidio Guerreri and Vicky Hatzidakis, all coming from different career paths of journalism, psychology, law, and tourism, decided to work together. They realized that the island did not offer a restaurant that served traditional Greek cuisine in an authentic and aesthetically pleasing environment. Armed with their extensive experience in hospitality and passion for food, they created Bakaló.
