“A SKIATHOS MUST DO!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2013

I will be repeating most of the other reviews! It is one hell of a climb, but it IS worth it!! The views are stunning, the staff are very friendly, welcoming and accommodating and the food is delicious. We hadn't booked and went early hoping for a table, but had left enough days that we could pre-book another night if we couldn't get in. They were actually fully booked, as there had been bad weather the night before, so had their usual bookings, plus extra from the night before, but Karen very kindly gave us a table on the side. Though the views weren't as good as the usual tables at the front, the main thing for us was to eat in the restaurant, as it came so highly recommended. The staff are very hard working, but still wanted to please you and kept checking that all was well and that we had all we needed, even asking if I needed a pashmina, as the night was cooling, little touches count for alot! Well done Windmill!

“Its a bit of a climb - but well worth it”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 6, 2013

We climbed the many stairs through the tiny streets to the Windmill Restaurant - but we were not disappointed when we go there. Not a bad seat in the house - well the terrace - the restaurant is completely out doors - sitting on top of a little hill in the middle of Skiathos town looking over the new harbour - with an old windmill at the top doubling as the kitchens. the views are spectacular. A little bit more expensive - but you would be doing your self a favour by treating your self at least once to a meal here whilst on holiday - would recommend without question

“Incredible....both the food and the view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 30, 2013

We booked the 'honeymoon table' here as a special meal while on holiday in Skiathos (we got married on the island last year and had wanted to visit the windmill but never found the time), it was so worth the wait. The balcony is incredible and private and gives you a perfect opportunity to watch the sunset (tip: I would check what time the sun is due to set before you book so that you can make the most of it).

It was a long trek up the steps from the town, but the food made up for it. It was beautfully presented, and tasted even better and we both felt that it was very resonably priced.

I would without a doubt recommend this to anyone who is on the island, but would definitely recommend booking (especially if you want the honeymoon table) as even in September, it was very busy!

“Great Food and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 28, 2013

Yes its a long climb but it you go up the side road opposite the bus terminal and walk along the top it is much easier and worth the effort and you can skip down after a lovely glass of wine or two! Food was presented and tasted like a West End Restaurants and the Beetroot starter was orgasmic, Tip share a Banoffee Pie its filling and delicious.
Very reasonable prices considering the standard of the food and the location.
Not suitable for guests with walking/breathing issues due to the location even when you arrive there are approx 20 steep steps to the entrance and be sure to book this is a very popular place which says it all!!!!
Try the Romeo and Juliet table if you are a couple in lurvvve {*_*}

“"MAGIC"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

Whilst holidaying on the beautiful Greek Island of Skiathos we visited the Windmill Restaurant, perched on top of a hill above the town, a terraced dining area offers magnificent views out over the harbour to islands nearby, & the town below looks fantastic lit up at night, well worth the climb, very romantic ambience. Food was first class, prepared to a very high standard, presented by a friendly efficient staff. One visit soon became three ! on our return to Skiathos next year the Windmill Restaurant will be top of the must do list. Many thanks to Karen for making our last evening a special one. (MUST ADD, THEY MAKE THE BEST IRISH COFFEE ON THE ISLAND) !!!
