Great little restaurant. Amazing value!

This restaurant is at the top of the village near the windmills - no surprises there! The food is typically Greek, huge portions, tasty and amazing value. We both chose a grill dish which came with salad and chips plus either beer or a small glass of wine for something ridiculous like 8 or 9 euros... read more

So glad we found this taverna, which is just up from Steps bar. The staff are very friendly and attentive and the food was lovely, particularly the stuffed courgette flowers and the swordfish souvlaki. We ate at this taverna 3 times in 2 weeks (as I do like to try different places), but we left this as the place to... More

We ended up in this restaurant after the owners of the rooms where we stayed recommended it to us and we definitely didn't regret taking their advice. Easy to find and very well located, just next to the windmills of Ios. Although we had to sit inside due to the strong wind, we immidiately felt welcome. We ordered traditional Greek-grandmother-style... More

My boyfriend and I ate here on our last night in Ios after looking at reviews on trip advisor and we certainly weren't disappointed! Our food was so tasty & excellent value! We also received a complimentary shot & dessert at the end of our meal. I would recommend a visit to The Mills restaurant for anyone visiting Ios. Tasty... More

We got lost during first attempt to find ourselves around in the labyrint of street in the village. It was time for dinner so we picked the mills in random. Turned out to be a great dinner, traditional menu, very friendly service with well tasting food.

Up at Mills Square, you’ll find this traditional Greek taverna serving up delicious local fare in a beautiful setting. Located in the highest spot in the village the view over the whitewashed windmills is truly unforgettable, especially during an amazing sunset. The food is fresh, tasty and delicious - try the spit-roasted lamb, swordfish steak and other local favourites. Reasonably... More
