Description: Mylos means windmill in Greek. And this old windmill in Santorini, perched on the cliff of the traditional village of Firostefani, has lent its name to one of the finest cafe-bars and restaurants on the island.After an impressive renovation that has elegantly fused the building’s traditional character with modern minimal aesthetics, Mylos café-bar and restaurant is now a sophisticated all-day meeting point, never failing to astound its guests with spectacular views and sublime gastronomic delights.The mesmerizing Caldera, the endless blue of the Aegean and the imposing submerged volcano provide the perfect setting. The charismatic chef and the skilled pâtissier provide the perfect culinary experience: delicious dishes from a wide Epicurean spectrum, which fancifully blend tastes from the modern international cuisine and mouth-watering desserts which are temptations in their own right. An amazing wine list that includes fine international and regional labels-with an emphasis on the Santorinian renowned varieties- comes to add to the enjoyment.In the morning exquisite home-made breakfasts are served till noon, while afterwards you can enjoy a lovely lunch from the light a la cart menu. And if you really want to treat yourself to a fabulous dining experience, nothing compares to a candlelit dinner at Mylos.This is a place that ticks all the boxes: "stunning surroundings", "gorgeous atmosphere", "divine food" and "excellent service", guaranteed to please the most demanding gourmands and oenophiles alike.

“Worst meal in Greece”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

We stayed in Santorini for 10 nights, and had so many delvisiou meals, this was the only mistake we made. The food is over priced, and not enjoyable. The prawn 3 ways starter was inedible - foul prawn ceviche and a cold prawn broth. The duck main was miniscule and served with a tiny salad. Not value for money. Please go to the traditional Greek tavernas and avoid this pretentious rubbish.

Dear reviewer,
Thank you for taking the time to review our restaurant.

According to your comments we understand that you were displeased with the quantity/pricing matter.
We would like to inform you that we are a distinguished gourmet restaurant and not greek tavern.
Please note that we do try to offer a wide selection of choices for our customers to cover many tastes and budgets. Our prices can be found at the menu catalogue we provide to all our customers and we are more than happy to assist if information needed.
Also in our website everyone can find large images of many of our plates. Our purpose is to show our gourmet cuisine and not hide it.
Our restaurant receives the best comments on food, but as it is understandable we cannot fully satisfy all tastes and preferences for all people.

We are pleased to know that you had a pleasant time in Santorini and we wish you the very best!

“The Best Restaurant in Santorini!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

I am almost lost for words for this magnificent restaurant, located in the Firostefani Santorini. Recommended, is a place YOU MUST Experience, if you enjoy a bit of experimental, cutting-edge cuisine.

Every single dish you have ordered was exceptional!! Presentation, flavours, service...where do i stop.

The service, elegant, modern and unassuming which was refreshing since in places like this they tend to get to pretentious. The restaurant itself is a newly renovated old wind mill building with a modern, slick interior. Wonderful (and i don't say things like that easily).

Prices....well i thought they were very well priced for what they where offering.

Get the "Exotica" dessert.!!

Highly recommended to anyone who loves and appreciates Great food in all aspects.

“Go!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2014

Go to the windmill in Firostefani!!Lovely food, a bit different from other restaurants we visited when we were in Satorini. Quite small meny but the food presentation was like art. Lovely staff, very knowledgeable of wine. View is of course fantastic from the restaurant, it is a good place to see the sunset.

“Amazing cocktails, best in Firostefani”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2014

Great views from the balcony areas, fresh and unique cocktail list with excellent mixologists working their magic behind the bar. Nice for couples wanting to watch the sun go down in a romantic setting.
