A gourmet meal can add class to any scenario, such as a wedding reception, a preschool graduation party, or intermission at your Grandmother’s mud-wrestling tournament. Make a fancy dinner even fancier with today’s Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of globally inspired dinner fare at Windmills in Kingston.
Windmills titillates taste buds of all types with a mouthwatering menu stocked full of globally inspired gourmet dishes made from fresh ingredients. Coronate a meal with friends or enliven a debate about the ethics of medieval dolphin racing with a kalbi beef short ribs appetizer ($12). Entrée-minded epicureans appease appetites with caramelized cilantro lime and chili caramelized salmon ($23) pulled fresh from the Atlantic, as braised lamb shank cassoulet ($23) satiates feral instincts of tamed incisors. Part-time vegetarians halt hunger with herbed goat cheese salads ($12), while ever-changing weekly specials suspend stomachs with a sense of excitement they haven’t felt since they were transplanted from piñatas into humans.
Accentuated by an all-glass storefront, Windmill beckons patrons with sumptuous Princess Street-overlooking dining booths, warmly-lit exposed brick walls, and a lack of silverware-infesting ghosts. In between forkfuls of lobster ravioli and filet mignon, enthrall your eyeballs by marveling Windmills’ display of contemporary art or calculate how many cloned versions of yourself you’d have to stand on to reach the16-foot ceilings. Though this deal is only good for dinner delectables, guests can please palates with potations from Windmills’ full-service bar or upscale wine list

- They have very decent breakfast, lunch and dinner menus, as well as a great wine list, which is likely why there always seems to be a good crowd of diners inside. – Harvey Kirkpatrick, Kingstonist
- If you're in the mood for a relatively classic style of fine dining with modern touches, than [sic] I'd highly recomend it. – oni, Restaurantica
According to Hicham "Sam" Eddahi, every meal should be a multi-sensory experience. “We put all five senses on one plate, have all the ingredients fuse into one exquisite taste," said the chef, who cultivated his culinary skills and passion for global cuisine in Europe and Morocco. At Windmills, Eddahi and his team infuse their breakfast, brunch, lunch, and dinner menus with flavours ranging from France to Asia to Latin America, and an expansive wine list ensures mouthwatering matches for every entree. High-quality proteins, such as local ground beef, sustainably fished salmon, or marrowbone, mingle with market-fresh vegetables and flavourful sauces. The menu also features nightly chef's specials, and like a chameleon walking beneath a rainbow, it changes frequently.
