Concierge.com's insider take:
This 19th-century windmill has a terrace of fairy lights, pale-yellow wooden chairs, bountiful bougainvillea, and heart-stopping vistas over the Aegean. It looks like the essence of taverna—and so it is. The food, though, is a step up, with dishes such as green long peppers fried with mizithra cheese; flowerpot chicken with smoked local tomatoes and balsamic-onion relish; and madi, a veal ravioli in yogurt-garlic sauce.
Open daily 7 pm to 12:30 am.
