We went for my wife's birthday, and we'd booked a few weeks in advance on line as it gets very busy. It is a steep climb to get to, but well worth for the views of the town and the harbour. I had ribs which simply fell off the bone. I had chicken and mash (described better on the menu)... More

Recent visit to windmill with my family What a view, steep climb to get there but so worth it, food and service excellent, would certainly go again, need to book a time as they have two sittings and would be disappointing to reach the top to find they are fully booked although you could just have a drink.

As a previous reviewer has said - do not be put off by the climb up to this restaurant it is SO worth it. This restaurant is streets beyond any other restaurant on the island in terms of food, service etc and to top it all the views are amazing (hence why the climb is worth it!). To come to... More

If steps are a problem this may not be for you! Though we went up by the back way, not well sign posted but not nearly as steep as the direct route from the port. The view from its dominant position is brilliant. The waiter was really good, friendly and thanked us for supporting Greece! The Windmill is run by... More

Yes, its a bit of a hike to climb up all those stairs, and is actually quite amusing watching people arrive out of breath, however once there the food is lovely. It is a limited menu which means you know they are going to take their time with the food, i had the special which was amberjack, a bit like... More

This is a beautiful restaurant positioned in an exquisite location. Could not ask for a nicer place to eat. Overlooking the port of Skiathos, outdoor dining. Excellent food and personal and friendly service. Would definately visit again. You must book though.

A one- off experience and a must do! There are two routes up with one being much easier then the other. The one that starts off the main shopping alleyway is the one to find but lack of signposts. Once at the top, we were rewarded with break taking views!! And surprisingly the food was also great! It's English food... More

We have been visiting this restaurant for the past four years. The food, the service and the views have made us regular customers. Simply put, this is the best restaurant on the island, by far. The contemporary european cuisine that strikes a balance between Greek and European tradition and the excellent quality of ingredients make every meal a joy to... More

They take bookings for 19:30 or 21:30. We opted for the latter, had a great table apart from the chain smokers at the next table and the slight breeze in our direction. Now I used to smoke and people that know me know that it doesn't normally bother me but we were hoping for what promised to be the best... More
