The views

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)....

Her main was the special tuna steak and... More

Read all the reviews and booked. Wasn't disappointed as such, just wasn't as good as I thought it would be. Most expensive meal we had in our ten days and was no where near the best food. Meat wasn't fresh and just didn't wow us

We'd had this recommended by a friend & we weren't disappointed!! The long and testing walk up the steps was totally worth it for the breathtaking views!! The staff are so friendly and service was fantastic. The food was great quality & thank goodness not the usual over facing Greek portions! We had prosecco, bottle of wine, and three courses... More
