My wife and I were persuaded to meet up with my brother in law and his wife who go on holiday to Paleros and told us about this wonderful restaurant, well I have eaten at many wonderful restaurants around the world so I was a little skeptical as to what we would find up a side street in a small Greek village. What a surprise we were in for the whole atmosphere was wonderful and the greeting we all received was fantastic. No menus, no choice, but a truly amazing meal and well worth the drive. My only regret was that I had to go easy on the plentiful wine as we still had a long drive back to our villa in southern Lefkarda. If you are ever within this part of Greece even if it does mean a longish journey it really is worth while making the effort, you won't be disappointed .

Someone recommended this place to us during our sailing holiday, and we are glad we tried it. What a great atmosphere and a welcome from Mahi and her daughter. Didnt see a menu but left it in their hands to serve up what they thought, and it was great, including 5 litre bottles of wine. It took a bit of finding a climbing up from the waterfront but definitely worth it. At least the return journey was easier! We were seated inside as it was cold that night, beside a real fire. We returned later in the holiday with friends and they loved it as well this time it was warmer and we were on the patio. A great holiday memory, and we are going to try to make their beetroot dip.

We saved this for the second week of our sailing holiday, if we realized it was this good we would have gone earlier and more than once- this place is brilliant and probably the best Greek food we have ever had - Just cannot wait to get back there again. This place is much much better than any along the front in Paleros, The menu is left to them and everyone I have spoken to has enjoyed the experience. Reasonably priced, welcoming and not too difficult to get to, this place is a must for all visitors to this small town - just love it..

We had read about this restaurant before we went to Paleros and our expectations were high. With a former guest list of Gordon Ramsay, Rick Stein and Jamie Oliver all giving praise, we were really looking forward to an evening at The New Mill. After walking uphill for 10 min we were greated with open arms and seated outside. There is no menu as such at this restaurant, you are served a "suprise" menu with dishes depending on what Cathy decides for the day. You are asked to take your time, and to stop whenever you are satisfied. Among our dishes were some beautiful cheese pies with sesamy and honey (which my husband still dreams about), an airy moussaka and a stifado seasoned to perfection. After several hours, we literally rolled down the hill back to our hotel.
We hust had to return, and a week after we booked a table (recommended on Thursdays and weekends). As a returning guest, you are given the option to choose from available dishes, but we asked Cathy and Mahi to suprise us one more time. As our mains we got a beautiful striped bass with vegetable broth, and a octopus stifado that was so excellent and tender that we were just sitting there laughing and smiling. As an extra treat, we were allowed in to the kitchen to see how Cathy makes her cheese pies.
At The New Mill you are greated as a welcomed guest, not as a customer. The hospitality and warmth that both Cathy and Mahi radiate are at a level rarely seen, making lasting memories for their guests. We hope to be back.
