We went here for my birthday and it felt like a treat. Dearer than other places but not bad given the views and menu. Not traditional Greek but we were ready for some garden vegetables and mash - my chicken stuffed with tomatoes and feta sauce was yummy and my other half's lamb shank just fell off the bone. I had the banoffee pie, which was lovely and crunchy. If we had time, I would have had a starter but not sure I could have managed three courses as the starters looked huge. Karen and Joanne were really welcoming and ensured we got away in time for the Mama Mia showing. Definitely one we would go back to when we return to the island.

This is our fourth year to Skiathos and having been to the Windmill last year and enjoyed the food and view it was always on our list for this year. Returning we loved the views again and found the food even better than last year.

We had carpaccio and prawns followed by fillet steak and salmon. The food was so good that we stopped debating about where to go on our final night of our holiday and rebooked at the windmill. On this occasion we a new starter prawns in bloody marry and followed it with risotto and steak.

The food on both occasions was excellent and service very friendly. We have eaten at most of the good restaurants on the island and now consider this our favourite.

If you book ahead ( and if it's quiet) you can book the balcony at The Windmill. This is a tiny little platform right at the top of the windmill, accessed via a little hatchway, with just room for a small table and 2 chairs.
Fabulous views, wonderful food and our waiter was a charming gentleman from Warrington!
Not cheap, but excellent value
Makes a special occasion even better

We visited The Windmill last week after seeing the good reviews on TripAdvisor before our holiday, and we were not disappointed. We booked for last Wednesday (19th) and were the first ones to arrive, very hot from our climb and they offered us some water straight away, which was good. We both had the lamb shank, which was delicious - probably the best I've ever tasted, with a creamy mash and a sauce which we couldn't work out what was in it, but that it was great! The banoffie pie for dessert was something else - absolutely magnificent! Again, the best I've tasted. Yes, it's pricier than your average taverna but the food, and stunning views, made it worth it. If we ever go to Skiathos again we will definitely return to The Windmill!!
