This place is set high up on a hill in Skiathos town. There is a very steep climb via over 100 steps so be prepared. However this is doable and you can take a break every now and then. The views are well worth the climb, they are incredible. Food and service is excellent, I had tuna steak followed by... More

Didn't feel valued or appreciated as a customer. Only one paper serviette on table and once this had been used during starter weren't offered replacement. Food was good but... More

The Windmill Restaurant could simply trade on its wonderful setting but it's best selling point is the incredible fresh food and exceptional service which is delivered by Karen and her team. They are a great team and on both of our visits we had nothing but a wonderful experience. We defy anyone not to enjoy the experience which brought my... More

We had drinks from the bar whilst we sat and enjoyed the panoramic views over most if not all of Skiathos. We were settled at our table served a nice rose wine recommended by the waiter and left with... More

Over the past 10 years we have visited the windmill 7 or 8 times. We have always enjoyed the food, service and ambience, however this year we found that it has lost the magic. We booked for our wedding anniversary and were informed that there are now two sittings (7.30 pm or 9.30 pm) neither of the times are ideal... More

We had an excellent meal here. It is quite a climb to get to the restaurant, but worth it just for the views. Definitely worth a visit!
