“lovely views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Went here for a meal on our last night, we had to book before we went, which we did on line. The views were beautiful and you could see most of Skiathos town including the airport runway. Food fantastic, but be prepared for lots of steps to get up there

“Fabulous....Again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

This would be the 4th time my hubby and I have eaten here and each time it just gets better! the service, the quality, the choice, the views....the list goes on!

We took my sister and hubby here for their first time as it was their anniversary and they too were blown away but the outstanding beauty on arrival. We were met by Karen whom we last seen 10 years ago on our first wedding anniversary (we were married in Skiathos and Karen and Makis and Yainni attended our wedding) who had not changed a bit and the years just melted away!

I had asked if it was possible to provide a bottle of Prosecco as a surprise for my sis, which was waiting on our fabulous table overlooking the harbour, and unbeknownst to myself at the time, was gifted to us by Karen...thank you x

The food was once again outstanding and I cannot recommend the Windmill enough, as it has it all.

Thank you once again for such an amazing evening and I am know we will be back when we once again visit this beautiful Island xx

“Only special for the view ”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

The food here was good, but nothing more or different from what you'd expect at a good British restaurant with a talented chef. The service was 'professional', not genuinely friendly as you expect in Greece, and felt pressured despite there being empty tables. The price was top end for Skiathos, being comparable to British restaurant prices.

So, the only real reason to come here is the view. The tables are arranged around the base of an old windmill atop Skiathos Town and afford a good view of the town below and sea beyond. Was it worth navigating the myriad backstreets and steps to find it? ... probably not.

“Amazing:)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 15, 2014

Four of us ate here last Saturday evening. We had a table right at the front and the views were just amazing! The service here was excellent from Karen the owner to the waitress who we chatted too:)
We all had a 3 course meal and everything was superb!
To sum it up, amazing food, views and service. Highly recommend!
Thank you:)
