The Windmill Restaurant is a family-run restaurant.
Scottish-born Karen worked at The Windmill Restaurant since 1996 (under previous owners), buying the business in 2008.
Karen arrived on Skiathos island on a family holiday in 1986, where she met islander Makis. Karen settled in Skiathos, married Makis and adapted quickly to Greek and island life. Karen and Makis welcomed their son Yiannis into the family in 1991.
Yiannis, now a qualified chef, has played a key role within the Windmill’s chef brigade since 2011.
Skiathos Town has two ports; the Old Port and the Paraliakos. Nestled between them is the Bourtzi which hosts music events during the summer. The Old Port is very picturesque and is where daily boat trips depart to nearby beaches, islands and tourist hotspots.
Visit the island’s beaches like Lalaria beach with its rock formations (only accessible by boat), Koukanaries which is the best and liveliest beach in Skiathos, and Mandraki with its beautiful sandy beach. Our island boasts the stunning Holy Monastery of the Annunciation to the Virgin Mary.
We also recommend a boat trip to neighbouring Skopelos island (Mamma Mia film locations including Kastani beach, Agnontas, and the Chapel of Agios Ioannis), and also to taste their mouth-watering Greek-style cheese pie!
ABOUT THE WINDMILL RESTAURANT
The Windmill Restaurant is located high above Skiathos Town above the Paralia. The windmill, originally built in 1880, is one of the oldest buildings on Skiathos. It was a working mill until 1946 and was carefully restored to a restaurant in the 1990s.
