We had heard about this restaurant before arriving in Skithos, so booked online, paying a deposit of €30. We reserved the best table overlooking the port, great food, beautiful evening with a bonus of a plane landing which we were higher than! This was a treat meal and we were not disappointed. 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

Lovely food fab views, booked for another evening but it was raining and there are only seats outside so we had to cancel as there was no seating inside. Such a shame as it was so lovely.

We ate here a few nights ago, I had the ribs and then we both had steak. The ribs were undercooked and so very tough. Tasty sauce, but that's it. I was expecting the meat to fall off the bone. The fillet steak was nice, along with the sauces. The Pinot noir red was lovely and made the meal. I've... More

My wife and I had heard so much about this restaurant we had to try it. We were not disappointed! The views across the rooftops of Skiathos were fantastic as were the views across the harbour and out to the Aegean. The food was simply spectacular, my steak was cooked exactly to my liking for the first time in a... More

Last ate here about 15 years ago, despite having stayed on the island for a week each September for the past 6 years. Probably the best food we have had over the last few years. An obviously beautiful setting, looking over the harbour. The staff all very efficient and friendly with a feeling of professionalism often missing in other restaurants.... More
