The Windmill Restaurant was our Cypriot vegan revelation of the trip. It was so recommended I marked it for my self as must visit. I read they have a lot of vegan options, and I was surprised to see a very vegan-friendly menu. But we didn’t need the menu. after a short conversation with Nancy and her brother We decided to go with the Cypriot Vegan meal.
We couldn’t resist so we ordered The Cypriot Vegan garlic bread too.
The Garlic bread was made with vegan butter and vegan cheese so reached in taste, it was served straight from the oven and it was just perfect.
The Windmill Green Salad with Vegan Feta
Great fresh salad with Aromatic olive oil and spices.
This simple dish had so many flavors it was unbelievable.
This colorful dish wasn’t just Pleasant to the eyes, I loved it.
this chickpeas paste was with a lot of Lemon juice much sourer then we are used to in Israel. It was a very good new experience. I just love it when I find a dish I think I know and someone just recreates it in a first experience for me.
The Windmill Olives
Olives from their grandfather’s tree cracked one by one by his hand. Crunching by Millstone, Soaked in water to remove bitterness, Then covered with lots of lemon juice and spices.
The Windmill Garlic Mushrooms
The spinach Rice in tomato sauce
The Windmill Black-eyed beans with chard, zucchini
Tomatoes Stuffed with rice and Windmill’s spices.
Windmill Rice with noodles
Beans with zucchini served with traditional uncooked onions
They offer a lot of mazes so I will conclude that everything was very well made with lots of flavors and textures. we loved all of them and licked the plates clean. The service was very professional and friendly. Nancy told us what we are getting and explained every dish. Some dishes she told us it is best to eat hot rather than wait too much. The windmill has a very good balance between traditional Cypriot vegan dishes and vegan adaptation of vegetarian dishes with a lot of vegan cheese that tastes great.
After this big dinner, We Nancy asked us if we want dessert, she recommended us with the chocolate cake and the baklava.
The chocolate cake was one of the best we have ever eaten vegan or not vegan. The strawberry ice cream on the side gave a nice balanced contrast to the dish with cold to hot and sweet to sour.
