Not a tourist trap

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

We visited the mills twice during our stay in Ios and both times we were not disappointed. The food was delicious ! Both times I ordered the meat selection as it was so good .. meat was cooked to perfection and portions were huge. We ordered other dishes like the various dips,chicken pie, flaming sausage, steaks and we all agreed... More

Had dinner there two nights during our vacation in Ios. Location is on top of hill overlooking the city snd by three old windmills which is the name of the restaurant in Greek (myloi). First night we tried meat dishes while the second we switched to seafood. Both were great, combined with friendly and attentive service made for great dinner... More

This is the first restaurant I go to every year on Ios, the best greek food going run by a great family. Also the lamb on a spit is to die for, in fact I've never had anything bad here

A very nice restaurant with a good selection of greek dishes. I had the stuffed squid and it was excellent, large and tasty. We both left full and we found the prices to be very reasonable. This was a good dinner choice.

It's a classic Greek taverna but in my opinion the quality is above the average, we liked it so much we came back twice here. Prices were similar to other tavernas. I particularly liked the complimentary pitta bread served warm with philadelphia at the start of the dinner and the - also complimentary - slices of cake with honey liquor... More
