Alegro – Mykonos, Greece

Alegro – Mykonos, Greece

Alegro was the first restaurant we tried when we arrived in Mykonos.  It was suggested by our hotel and being that it was on the water front, it sounded like a great place to grab small bites and a drink before dinner later that night.  The setting was perfect – situated on the waterfront with front row seats to all the boats and cruise ships nearby.  Beautiful!

Our choices were pretty easy to make.  Saganaki, made with Metsovone cheese, ended up being one of the best we had our entire trip to Greece!  Wrapped in delicate filo (phyllo) and drizzled with honey…it was perfect and not heavy at all while lots of other versions have a tendency to be.  The calamari was fried, however it was the lightest I’ve ever had.  There was definitely WAY MORE calamari than breading and it was cooked perfectly and in large rounds.  Very good!  Last was the zucchini balls which were amazing!  I wish I could go back and order those again.  Formed into cakes, they were soft and moist with hardly any filler allowing you to taste the ingredients really well.  Yum, yum, yum…go here!
