It’s a name that needs little introduction, with Buddha-Bar rightly enjoying a renowned international reputation. With a unique concept of the brand's bars popping up for a limited time in some of the most sought-after beach destinations across the globe, the world's first Buddha-Bar Beach finally opened its doors in 2015 at a gorgeous seaside location on Santa Marina's private beach. The restaurant is part of the chic Santa Marina Resort & Villas, a stunning retreat on the Aegean Sea known for its luxurious setting. Thanks to its impressive surrounds and irresistible culinary creations, it is rightly believed that no trip to Mykonos is complete without visiting Buddha-Bar Beach.
Designed as an exclusive cove on the shore, Buddha-Bar Beach provides welcome relief from a day spent at the beach lounging in the Cycladic sun. In keeping with the laid-back vibe of Mykonos, the ambience here is relaxed, making the venue a gorgeous spot to enjoy a meal soaking up the serene views.
The sprawling bar and restaurant offers an exciting menu brimming with a variety of Pacific Rim-inspired dishes. The food, along with the sensational seaside views, creative cocktails and on-point soundtrack make this the ultimate spot for balmy summer afternoons and cosy nights. And taking in the spectacular surrounds with a cocktail in hand (undoubtedly, the best you'll find on the entire island), is truly an amazing way to make the most of Buddha-Bar Beach.
Bringing a refreshing change to the Greek dining scene by moving beyond traditional flavours, the menu champions flavours of the Far East with inventive Oriental dishes. Expect a tempting selection of Asian fusion flavours – think Vietnamese spring rolls, tuna tartare, chicken gyoza dumplings, roasted aubergine marinated in yuzu sauce, Thai red curry and more. And staying true to its seaside setting, the seafood options here are the stars of the show.
During summer, celebrity DJs and world famous chefs make Buddha-Bar Beach their home, creating unique events that residents and visitors alike can enjoy. This only shows that the restaurant goes above and beyond the average dining venue to offer an ever-evolving lifestyle experience.
