Absolute MUST when in Skiathos. Booking is recommended to prevent disappointment. Managed to book the best seat in the house, 'the honeymoon table' a gorgeous setting in the windmill itself upstairs on a private balcony with the most amazing views of the harbour and Skiathos. In fact there isn't a bad seat in this restaurant as they all look out... More

Spectacular views, amazing food and lovely staff. Make sure you visit The Windmill Restaurant when you're in Skiathos. It was incredible. We were advised to book so did so via email before we got to Skiathos- staff are very friendly and helpful

We visited Windmill and booked the special balcony table. The food was very good and we were given superb service. The view down over the town is simply amazing

Reserved on line before we travelled. Fantastic views across the Old and New Ports. The food and drinks were first class and although pricier than other Skiathos restaurants it was well worth it. A great place for a special occasions and romantic meals.

Attentive service, beautiful steak, slightly disappointed with the... More

The Windmill was recommended to us by the owner of our hotel (The Bourtzi), which is normally an indication of a good place. The previous comments about the steep climb and amount of steps are very true and you may struggle if you have reduced mobility. However, you are rewarded once you get to the restaurant by the amazing views... More

High expectations for this restaurant given rating however extremely disappointed with food. The seafood risotto was served as a very very small portion, very much lacking in content. Had no calamari as per the menu. When queried with the staff, a lady from below us stated that the calamari was in the sauce! If the case (I doubt with calamari),... More

Your second attempt to complain under a new title . People like you should keep your hard earn money and stay at home . You were miserable from the moment you arrived . Skiathos doesn't need people like you ! More
