Solymar is located on the coast of Ciudad de la Costa in the Canelones Department of Uruguay. It borders the beaches of Rio de la Plata, El Bosque and Lomas de Solymar. The origin of the name is unclear, but it may be related to Hungarian solymasz (meaning falconer). The village was a home to many royal falconers until World War II, when it was evacuated by the Nazis and its residents sent to Germany.
A sophisticated, world-class Greek restaurant in the heart of Mykonos town. Chef Ioannis Parikos serves up dishes like 12-hour lamb with celeriac puree and couscous, or the decadently delicious Krama mushrooms (a mushroom ragout with poached egg, potato cream and truffles). The menu is extensive and the prices are steep, but the ambiance and high-quality ingredients make it worth the splurge.

This is an authentic dining experience that will leave you with a full belly and happy memories.

Bistrot de Nicolas
Located in the heart of the medieval town of Tremolat, this charming bistrot features a warm welcome and amazing food. Owner Nicolas has spent over a decade traveling across France, collaborating with the leading restaurants in contemporary French cuisine and exploring the intricacies of what’s known as “nouvelle cuisine.” After this extensive experience, he came home to Mykonos and realized two things: 1. that he wanted to be closer to his family and 2. that he wanted to create a place where people could enjoy creative culinary innovation.
With a menu that changes with the seasons, Bistrot de Nicolas is a great place to try authentic French comfort food without having to book three months in advance.
