Mykonos Greek Taverna
Mykonos Taverna first opened its doors in the 80’s in Sea Point and was run by Peter Peroglou and his family. Now, 30 years later, Dimitri Peroglou (Peter’s son) and his wife, Vicky, run this authentic Greek taverna with the same traditions as initially installed almost half a century ago.
‘Our idea from the beginning is to create, produce and serve superb, full flavored food - all ruled by taste. We always strive for efficient, uncompromised, sincere, fabulous, caring and exceptional service. We are passionate about building strong relationships with everyone that crosses our paths – be it our customers, our community, or our suppliers.’
Situated between the gentle slopes of Signal Hill and the breezy, rolling Atlantic Ocean, this is the firstborn of the trio of local Mykonos tavernas. Paying homage to its authentic Greek roots, this is the destination of a monthly arrangement of traditional plate breaking and Greek food feasting, commonly known as the ‘Greek Evening.’ Visit the restaurant on any other day for a lasting experience of superb food and exceptional service, completed with loud shouts of ‘OPA!’ and entertainment from the buzzling Sea Point Main Road and surrounding beachfront apartments.
Located on a corner in one of the most vibrant suburbs of Cape Town, our glass-enclosed souvlaki and mezze bar overlooks long stretches of pristine white, palm tree-lined beaches, mirrored by magnificent views of the majestic Lion’s Head mountain. Enjoy the crisp sea air while enjoying a souvlaki hot off the charcoal grill, drenched in lashings of cool tzatziki and wrapped in a warm, fresh pita bread.
Nestled in the lush, green southern suburb of Newlands, this taverna harmonizes the heritage of some of the oldest schools and most legendary sporting facilities in our country. With the South African Brewery and Newlands Rugby Stadium just a stone’s throw away, we highly recommend taking a moment to simply watch the world stroll by - over a mezze, of course – just as is done in traditional Greek village culture. Or should you be looking to unwind after a long day, few things come close to spending a summer’s evening under the fairy lights of the secret Dean Street courtyard, overlooked by magnificent oak trees, whilst sipping on some of the best wines that the Cape has to offer!
