For this restaurant to be marked as highly as it is,the owners are doing their own reviews of the restaurant or getting their friends to do it. Don't go if you struggle on your feet, if you don't fall on the way up in day light, you will do on the pathetic steps on the way down once it's gone... More

Dear Sir, Due to your recent complaint about The Windmill restaurant, I feel the need to respond. You complained initially in August about your meal which you were compensated for and the 'problem' was solved. The restaurant has been closed for 7 months, due to it being the winter season and yet you still have not satisfied yourself with your... More

This is the best restaurant on the island in my opinion. It also happens to be the most expensive. But as they say u get what u pay for. Incredible views of the harbour and food to die for. You have to try the banoffy pie for desert!

Dear travellers, if you expect much from the cuisine there you might be disapointed. The restaurant with give you unforgetable emotions - that is for sure! Enjoy Skiathos views with the glass of chill rose champagne!

Before you go to The Windmill Restaurant bare two thing in mind: 1) there are plenty of steps you have to climb before you actually get there and 2) it is always a good idea to have a reservation, because it is a very popular destination (if not you may end up waiting up to 20-30 minutes for a table)....

It was a pleasant warm evening for outside dining and the view from our table was outstanding. The table service was prompt. I can't remember my wife's starter. Her main was the special tuna steak and... More
