Beautiful hotel with lovely views of Skiathos Town. The Honeymoon Balcony is worth booking if you want to propose to your loved one like I did but book well in advance. The food was amazing and the staff were lovely. The owner Karen is a...lovely lady and herself and her staff make you very welcome. Oh and she said yes 💍More

I concur with susanf comments beforehand. My French lamb was tough and undercooked. Not sure what the red mash potato gravy/sauce/soup was all about and certainly tasteless. Not quite the birthday celebration I had in mind and this is no fine dining experience so if...you enjoy your food, give this a wide berth. Joins my list of worst dining experiences.More

Our Friday dinner was not a positive experience and what was our most expensive meal on Sciathos was also our worst at the Windmill. Two simple starters of beef carpaccio and fried calamari took 50 minutes to arrive after delays with sitting us down to...our reservation, taking forever to present menus, simply ages to take a wine order and eventually take our food order for two people! The waiting staff were clearly embarrassed by their tone and demeanour. The beef carpaccio was served on a tomato relish which detracts from the flavour of the fillet of beef and not needed. The French trimmed rack of lamb wasn’t quite French trimmed as the chine bone was left intact making it impossible to cut through the ribs to release a small loin chop so we had to gouge out prime meat with the tip of a knife whilst the meat was swimming in a slushy mash potato and tomato melange. Not an attractive presentation of the main course. So disappointing. My rating is primarily for the setting and scenery.More

We had been recommended The Windmill by our wedding venue in Manchester, and it did not disappoint! Karen and the team are all so attentive and friendly, and gave us a complimentary glass of fizz on arrival to celebrate our honeymoon which was lovely. We...booked the honeymoon table which has the most amazing views over Skiathos, and perfect to see the sunset! The food was absolutely amazing, easily one of the best meals we have eaten on our trip! I had the fillet steak and my husband had the prawn starter and ribeye steak special - all perfectly cooked and so tasty with great sauces and sides. We then shared the banoffee pie for dessert which was incredible. We will 100% be coming back next year as Skiathos is now on our list of places to return!More

Booking a table online was simple and easy, the service was attentive and interactive, once seated the views were amazing and the freshly prepared food was excellent. Really enjoyable experience, will be back next holiday.

We returned to the Windmill 17 years after our first visit in 2004. It was better than I remember and I absolutely love this restaurant. We had booked the Honeymoon table but on arrival, I hadn't appreciated how high up it was. I explained to...Karen that I didn't do heights very well and she shuffled some tables around, offered ours to another couple, and we had theirs so all good. The food was amazing as was the wine but be warned, it's quite a hike to get up to the Windmill which is fine at the beginning of the evening but on the way back down (after a couple of bottles of Greek Rose, it was quite a different story!). Karen is a wonderful 'host' and we will return.... one day.More

We came 7 years ago and it was really nice so we were really excited to go back, however this time it was a disaster. The welcome seemed off and once we sat down they informed us that the meal we both wanted (lamb) was...no longer available. After 45 minutes waiting we finally had someone come to take out order. We asked for the beef x 2 to which she replied “now finished!” At this point we had been sat for ages and a bit fed up. We asked for the bill for our glass of wine and left. We didn’t even get an apology and the service to us was terrible. For their reputation and such a special restaurant it was unacceptable. My advice is pre order your food if you can or book a 7pm table as anything later there will be little left.More

It was a special birthday and my family made the surprise booking. The windmill is located on a steep incline overlooking skiathis old port, the views are spectacular and memorable. Its a hidden gem and well worth the short climb. The host Karen McCann Tassos...was friendly and kept coming out of the resteraunt to check we were okay. The food was exceptional and everyone were accommodated with ample choices. We drank bubbly and watched the sun go down. Karen and her staff brought out a birthday surprise with candles and began a rendition of happy birthday, a simple but kind gesture which was fully appreciated by all the diners. The atmosphere was friendly and there was a great vibe. I would recommend the windmill for anyone who wants dining with spectacular views, excellent cuisine and friendly ambience. We will certainly be visiting again. A truly memorable experience that surpassed my expectations.More
