A story of love and heritage
"WE ARE BASICALLY THE HOSTS OF A DINNER PARTY THAT IS THROWN DAILY."
- AHMET & ANASTASIA
Founded by husband and wife team Ahmet Erkaya and Anastasia Koutsioukis, Mandolin Aegean Bistro opened in Miami in 2009. They restored a 1940's home with one of the most notable gardens and outdoor patio space in Miami, where every attention to detail matters. The couple brought their combined culture and spirited hospitality to the forefront of Miami's food scene. As the establishment grew, our culinary team interprets the traditional recipes and seasonality of Greek and Turkish coastal food. Dedicated to using local ingredients while incorporating the Aegean techniques.
You are instantly transported to the tavernas along Aegean coastal towns where the Greek Islands meet the Turkish coast, as you enter the blue gates and pass through the bougainvillea. Our village will greet you with a dose of warm, genuine, Mediterranean hospitality as you indulge in the taste and traditions of the Aegean.
Today Mandolin has become a home away for home for our local Miami community and international travelers. Mandolin is more than just a restaurant. It's a way of life. It approaches an effortless way of eating and living through enjoying the simple pleasures.
