We stepped by here our first day of staying in Kiotari. the owner is extremely friendly and absolutely not an intruder. We ordered something simple but we adored how he sat with us and gave us the best tips to tour around the island (best non turistic corners, when to go to some beaches, which villages not to miss).

This place was one of the greatest surprises we encountered in Rhodos. We used the sunbeds in Kiotari beach and ordered a beer - but the girl did not have a money back (50euros note) - so we told her we are going to come the their place for a lunch. I would say (without knowing the quality of Pelicans... More

The food was great - that alone is enough. However the owner/chef was the best person we had ever encountered to run a restaurant. We went 2 nights in a row. It was early in the season so he had no other helpers. He was waiting tables and cooking at the same time. Up front, he told us it might... More

We a couple of miles and found this little restaurant which sits in the middle of a row of 3 tavernas on the seafront. One specialises in fish, the other appears to be an all-rounder and this one specialised in meat. We ordered a cocktail to start which was made with fresh melon juice from the garden and absolutely gorgeous.... More

From June 10 to the 17, 2012, we had the great fortune to spend a tremendous week at the fabulous Al Mare Villas in Kiokari Beach on Rhodes. By chance, we wandered into Pelican's Nest for dinner our first night in Kiokari. Immediately, we were overwhelmed by the friendly, hilarious, generous, hospitable owner and chief cook, George Pelekanos. We had... More

The food, the staff and the setting are all right out of a fairy tale. From the minute that my boyfriend and I walked up the stairs to enter the Pelican's Nest we felt like we belonged. The owner, George, came to our table several times each visit to ask how our vacation was and if he could offer us... More
