This is perhaps the best restaurant on Ios. We had a very good lamb dish. The service was good. Looking at the windmill outside is nice, but inside isn't the restaurant very atmospheric. It was not as good as the best restaurants on the island of Sifnos, but pretty good as well.

Nice menu, nice host and nice prices, the place to go in the village of Chora. The owner is very very kind, full of many kinds attentions. A nice place to go which is quite quiet.

Visited with an Intrepid group, our leader was Alex. The most authentic food I've had in Greece, generous and a fabulous selection, and a wonderful host - he even gave me a recipe!

They let me have a seat in a very busy and hot night in a kind of a square under a mill (nice location). The restaurant was busy so I had to wait for a while to order. The food was ok. I had dolmades which I usually like a lot... unfortunately they put a sauce on them which I... More

The best restaurant in Ios. The food is delicious and stuff is very kind. The portions are very big and tasty. You can sit inside or outside. Mills has the best food on the island.
