The Windmill: The restaurant at the top of the island
This restaurant is situated right at the top of the hill in Skiathos town. It's a long steep walk up, but well worth doing. Once you get to the top, you will be rewarded by beautiful views over the harbour and the old town. the restaurant is arranged on patios outside of what was once a working windmill and now makes a very special and romantic setting for a meal. There is even a "honeymoon balcony" for two people high up on the windmill itself, but most of the tables are nestled around the base of the windmill on the wide steps. A lovely setting!
Favorite Dish: Pork Chops in plum sauce with caremelised vegetables! Not very greek, as the owners of the hotel are British, but superbly cooked!
The Windmill: On Top of Skiathos
The restaurant is stituated at the highest point of new skiathos town... you can see it from the port as it looks like a windmill. The way up there is a bit trechorous with lots of steep steps but it's worth it.
The service was first class the view from there is amazing. To any guys out there that want to be romantic, i would say this is the perfect spot!
I can't fault the food and as with the rest of skiathos the local wine is very very good.
The restaurant is more expensive than other places on the island and because of it's location it is probably not ideal for families with small children or for the elderly and disabled, which is a shame because it's a place that i would recommend to anyone.
Favorite Dish: I'm a big fan of calamari and this place doesn't let me down. The seafood like everywhere on the island is completely fresh, in fact if you go down to the port early in the morning you'll see the restaurant owners running down there to get the best fish.
apart from the fish i recommend the wine there, have it with a bottle of water like the greek gods used to and overlooking the island you may even feel like you are.

Mesostratos: Pretty taverna with wicked squid!
We went to many tavernas in Skiathos but this was our favourite. All the food was lovley the setting so pretty and the prices resonable. The thing I loved about this was that many of the other tavernas were geared soley towards tourist taste where as I felt this was more in keeping with the area.
Favorite Dish: The squid was HUGE and really tasty
Windmill: Fantastic Views Great Food
This resturant is up many stairs at the top of Skiathos Town but so worth the climb! Fantastic Views of the harbour and town and food to match. A little dearer than most places but so well worth it!
Favorite Dish: So many to choose from and all fantastic!
There are a lot of tavanas along the waterside in Skiathos Town, one which I frequented regularly was on the waters edge going towards the airport. There are ruins of an old windmill you cant miss it.
It has a great position, ideal for a relaxing drink looking out to sea, on certain days you can watch the tourists flights coming in to land.

A wide range of traditional dishes are served here. The staff make you feel as if you are a recently discovered distant relative and the children are made a huge fuss of.
Favorite Dish: There si no favourite here - everything is so good I wouldn't dare advise anything other than your own choice - come back again and again and decide for yourself!
