The Windmill

The Windmill Review

Escape the buzz of Skopelos town by climbing up the hill above Ayios Nikolaos to dine at this well restored 1880s mill–turned–unpretentiously elegant restaurant. Run by Scottish Karen McCann, the Windmill offers the town's most awesome views of the moonlit harbor accompanied by a gourmet rendition of British pub dishes with a breezy Mediterranean and southeast Asian twist. Start with the calamari with Parmesan crumb, chilli, and ginger dip, then sample the popular char-grilled fillet of beef (with a choice of sauces such as peppercorn or mushroom and bacon) before ending with a rich dessert. The Windmill has a little balcony that seats two, which places diners at the highest spot above the town; if you'd like to dine at new heights, book this coveted perch way in advance.
