One of my favourite restaraunts in Europe and definitely #1 in Skiathos. The views, the food, the professional and attentive staffing adds to the perfect holiday atmosphere and meal. Serving a 'modern european' menu with a good selection of (primarily) greek wines, it is recommended to book in advance. Be advised the climb (steps) to the Windmill is not for... More

We booked a table online before visiting this restaurant, and got a table with an amazing view over the city of Skiathos! And as many other says in their reviews of The Windmill, you will have to climb maaaany steps to get up there. Being seated outside was a bit windy, so we were glad we had brought jackets. The...

I will be repeating most of the other reviews! It is one hell of a climb, but it IS worth it!! The views are stunning, the staff are very friendly, welcoming and accommodating and the food is delicious. We hadn't booked and went early hoping for a table, but had left enough days that we could pre-book another night if... More

We climbed the many stairs through the tiny streets to the Windmill Restaurant - but we were not disappointed when we go there. Not a bad seat in the house - well the terrace - the restaurant is completely out doors - sitting on top of a little hill in the middle of Skiathos town looking over the new harbour... More

We booked the 'honeymoon table' here as a special meal while on holiday in Skiathos (we got married on the island last year and had wanted to visit the windmill but never found the time), it was so worth the wait. The balcony is incredible and private and gives you a perfect opportunity to watch the sunset (tip: I would... More

Yes its a long climb but it you go up the side road opposite the bus terminal and walk along the top it is much easier and worth the effort and you can skip down after a lovely glass of wine or two! Food was presented and tasted like a West End Restaurants and the Beetroot starter was orgasmic, Tip... More

Whilst holidaying on the beautiful Greek Island of Skiathos we visited the Windmill Restaurant, perched on top of a hill above the town, a terraced dining area offers magnificent views out over the harbour to islands nearby, & the town below looks fantastic lit up at night, well worth the climb, very romantic ambience. Food was first class, prepared to... More

Ate here twice while in Skiathos and both times it was fantastic. It is a bit of a trek to get there (ladies bring your flatties) but it is well worth the climb... you basically burn all the calories before you get there! I tried the calamari which was beautiful and the shrimp bruschetta which was amazing. Both times I... More

We had one evening on Skiathos before crossing to Skopelos and considered ourselves so fortunate to find The Windmill. It was busy and as we were late booking we couldn't eat till 9 o'clock. However this was a bonus as the lights of the town and boats in the harbour were magical. The climb was steep but worth it. The... More

Easily the best restaurant on the island – yes, all the accolades it receives are deserved. The service is incredibly welcoming, friendly and attentive - despite the restaurant being busy every night of the week, (you will need to book a table) the considerable number of down-to-earth staff work efficiently to ensure you have an enjoyable experience. The Windmill is... More
