Mediterranean cuisine restaurant in the centre of Mykonos that opened its doors on June 2013 and has already been stated high in the preferences of the public of "the island of the winds”. Highly atmospheric place and romantic, yet functional. The garden of the Mamalouka restaurant (named after a Greek Myconian salad), was enriched with many trees as well as pergolas and bougainvilleas. Lots of levels were created to avoid the monotony of all people sitting on the same height. Several cozy/romantic/quiet corners were established and teak furniture
that respect the Myconian landscape were chosen, along with built-in sofas, so that they can respond to the island's special and difficult weather needs. The big bet was to design an alluring entrance on the one side of the restaurant, so that people could enter and dine in, as this was placed in the end of a 12 meter uninteresting corridor. It was gained by the installation of 200 holes with fiber optics on the entrance walls, built-in like traditional stones, creating illuminating effect that intrigued customers to enter the restaurant.
