If you're a regular reader of my blog, you know we're always on the lookout for a good restaurant . . . not only is eating out expensive in the Netherlands (and yet groceries are so cheap!), but when we add a baby to the mix, it really needs to be worth our while to get out, fight tiny restaurants, and try to eat quickly enough and make it out before any tired meltdowns occur.
Well the restaurant we went to last night was nothing short of delicious, had a wonderful atmosphere, and a wait staff that acted as though we were the only table in the restaurant. Mykonos, a Greek restaurant in Son, is close enough and quaint enough that I think we'd be able to go with Liam for a nice, quick meal, or (even better) leave Liam with a sitter and go for a date night and have leisurely dinner complete with apps and desserts!
Most of us shared dishes, passed appetizers around, and partook in the complimentary liquer that was brought to the table before we ever got our first bite -- I told you they paid special attention to us! I'm so mad I didn't take pictures of our appetizers, but I can tell you that we ate tzatziki with pita bread, feta cheese, calamari, and stuffed red peppers. ohmiword. And that was just the beginning. Then came salads, entrees, desserts, and cappuccinos (and I can't forget the bucket of water we ordered!)!
