As a previous reviewer has said - do not be put off by the climb up to this restaurant it is SO worth it. This restaurant is streets beyond any other restaurant on the island in terms of food, service etc and to top it all the views are amazing (hence why the climb is worth it!). To come to Skiathos and not eat here is madness. Last night we started with the Calamari - fantastic flavours and followed on with the Risotto and the Steak. You will travel far and wide to get a risotto to match this one - packed full of asparagus and peas with the most gorgeous cheesy flavours - steak was superb and beautifully presented - a side order of vegetables were simply perfectly cooked, fab flavours designed even to make the most reticent of diners 'eat their greens'!!! All in all , the best meal to be had by far on the island and one of the most reasonably priced - many of the other restaurants on the island have begun to charge what seem to be highly inflated prices for distinctly average food - at the Windmill you will get top notch European fare to match any high class restaurant and at amazingly reasonable prices. Simply number one!

If steps are a problem this may not be for you! Though we went up by the back way, not well sign posted but not nearly as steep as the direct route from the port. The view from its dominant position is brilliant. The waiter was really good, friendly and thanked us for supporting Greece! The Windmill is run by a Scottish couple, we were expecting quite a bill as the food quality was excellent but we found it to be very good value for money. A definite 'go again'. We also found the 'house' white wine to be better than other house wines we had been served while on Skiathos.

Yes, its a bit of a hike to climb up all those stairs, and is actually quite amusing watching people arrive out of breath, however once there the food is lovely.
It is a limited menu which means you know they are going to take their time with the food, i had the special which was amberjack, a bit like swordfish, cooked perfect and delicious.
It isnt the cheapest tavera on the island but i would definitely recommend a visit.

This is a beautiful restaurant positioned in an exquisite location. Could not ask for a nicer place to eat. Overlooking the port of Skiathos, outdoor dining. Excellent food and personal and friendly service. Would definately visit again. You must book though.

A one- off experience and a must do! There are two routes up with one being much easier then the other. The one that starts off the main shopping alleyway is the one to find but lack of signposts. Once at the top, we were rewarded with break taking views!! And surprisingly the food was also great! It's English food ( lamb shank is fab) and the banoffi was demolished very quickly. A really nice change to eating Greek every night. They also have a separate kids menu also presented very well. Some romantic seating for couples on individual balconies. Enjoy!
