“Best restaurant in skiathos”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014

We always book well in advance to get our favourite table here - the balcony table or the honeymoon table as it is known.

The ambience is amazing - very quiet, stunning view - and of course exceptional service. Yes it is a walk up some very steep steps but after a lazy day it's welcoming.

The best quality foods are used and this is evident from the lovely taste and the presentation is excellent.

“What can you say”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 11, 2014 via mobile

Well what can you say about this place, the food is wonderful , the service great and the views are fantastic. We had booked a table before we left the Uk and our experience was so good we booked again for our 2nd week. On our 1st visit I had the Tuna steak which was easily the best meal I had on the island. My wife had the chicken which she also really enjoyed. 2ND time around we both had the steak which was also wonderfully cooked.

The service is so friendly and you are really made to feel special and nothing is too much trouble. Thanks Jo.

As stated in previous reviews it is a bit of a uphill trek to get to the windmill but trust me when you see the views of skiathos town and the harbour below and sample the food you will be very glad that you made the effort.

“Disappointing compared to usual”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014

We've regular visitors to skiathos and to the Windmill. This year some things were just as nice - the view from the restaurant was lovely as ever and the service was good. Our starters were very nice but the main courses were not as good as usual. The pork was overlooked and the sauce looked identical to that served with a chicken dish which was served on the next table to us. Similarly the banoffee pie was served a a base that looked identical to that that the cheesecake was served on and the base was so hard you had trouble getting through it. There are lots of excellent eating opportunities in skiathos town and the windmill needs to be careful it doesn't lose it edge. Not sure if we would try it next year....
