We had an excellent meal here. It is quite a climb to get to the restaurant, but worth it just for the views. Definitely worth a visit!

The view from here is well worth the effort climbing the stairs. We have dined here at least once on our 3 visits to Skiathos (so far) The food was not as good as we have remembered it from previous years but still very good. Staff as polite and helpful as ever and we will be using it agian on our next visit to this wonderful island.
Not to be missed when in Skiathos bur I would recommend that you ask your hotel to book your table in advance so you don't need to climb the stairs more than you need too!! Use the back stairs as well as they are an easier climb

My husband I ate at The Windmill restaurant on 26th June, which was the last night of our holiday in Skiathos. The setting is very romantic, with beautiful views across the water to neighbouring Skopoles.

The quality of food was good however our disappointment and memories and hence our subsequent rating came from the speed of service. Our table was booked for 7:30pm and through no choice of ours we had eaten our starter and main course by 8:10pm, which gave the impression it was more a fast food joint rather than a restaurant.

Due to the speed of service we did not order dessert or coffee, which we would have done had we had the opportunity to digest our previous 2 courses. When we advised that we didn't wish for anything more at present the waiter produced the bill immediately and we felt we needed to leave the restaurant, having not even been seated for 1 hour.

From both a customer service and business perspective I found this very poor. We felt we could not enjoy the meal property and the restaurant missed out on additional revenue as we would have ordered an additional course and more wine should the service have been better planned.

In summary, The Windmill has a lovely setting and the food was of good standard but it was let down by lacking the fundamental basics of customer service.

Sorry to learn of your disappointment whilst dining with us. Firstly, this is a fine dining restaurant, not fast food as you described. As per the rules concerning service time in any gastronomic restaurant, from the moment an order is taken, the customer should wait no more than seven minutes for their starter and twenty minutes for main course. Additionally, all our tables are rebooked again at 21:30 hours therefore we would not issue a bill earlier than required.

It's always a climb to get there. Hadn't been for a couple of years. Great to go back. Food was really great. The chilli prawns brilliant! Great unintrusive service but very friendly as well. Good range of choices for main, with a special, and for desserts. It's an international menu but there are so many choices for local cuisine in town that a visit to The Windmill, with its spectacular, view will a highlight.
