A must when in rhodes!

So on first impressions this lovely restaurant with a garden feel to it and extensive menu is a must. When you enter you get greeted by the one man show (he's the waiter, the chef and entertainer) he will tell you have 2 or 3 choices to choose from - so no menu! You may be hesitant at first -... read more

Poor quality food, and a very strange atmosphere. If your a family avoid this place, which is on the main road between Afantdou and Falaraki

We have enjoyed dinner at this taverna twice. Each time the food has been exellent. Good service and a beautiful arena. Beautiful plants give the place an exellent frame. We love it and can really recommend the place.

A wonderful restaurant and meal, after staying in an 'all inclusive' hotel it was a delight to eat at The Golfer.

The restaurant is stunning from the outside and very quaint inside. When we came to order, everything we had chosen was not available. The waiter kept referring us to chicken dishes so I think that was the only meat available for some reason. We eventually took his suggestion with some apprehension but when the food arrived it was so tasty!... More

I am Greek and I can say this is seriously good Greek home cooking! We found it very difficult to find very good quality Greek food at a decent price in Lindos without feeling like we were being ripped off! Well eventually we found this gem and it was worth the 30 mins drive from lindos! Fanis was a great... More

This was by far the best Greek meal we had had on this trip! We sampled a variety of dishes, all filling and delicious! Great value for money and very friendly service. The owner Fanis really went out of his way to make it an enjoyable visit. Thank you. The restaurant is on the main road and can be quiet... More

The Golfer is on the main dual carriageway road from Rhodes Town to Lindos. It is about a 30 minute walk from the centre of Afandou. The Government money ran out on the road project so the pavements have not been completed and it is dangerous to walk along the highway - this is why there are not many people... More
