The Best Restaurant in Rhodes

This restaurant is set in a beautiful garden in a secluded, quiet area of the old town. The food is local and fresh, with excellent fish dishes from that day's catch. All the dishes we ate there were imaginative and very good. The service was attentive and helpful. Sorry we did not go more often... read more

We really enjoyed our experience at Marco Polo. Excellent & knowledgable staff, not to mention the hostess...she has a real passion for food. Location is romanticly tucked away in the narrow streets of the old town...just outside the busy part.

On the recommendation of our hotel we dined here on our first night in Rhodes. Located in the old town in a beautiful courtyard. Food was delicious and fresh. With a lovely atmosphere to match. Teo people including a glass or wine, around 60€. Would definitely return.

One of the best. And creative food. Both wih fish and red meat. Every dish was an adventure., which I haven't eat before. Wine is good. The owner is a Diva. A must in Rhodes. Hard to find :)

We discovered that place by pure chance during our trip to Rhodes. From the outside, it didn't really look like much, but once you've climbed the stairs, you find yourself in a very intimate and beautiful terrace. The food was so good that we decided to go there a second time. You must book as it gets really crowded. The... More

Walking around the narrow cobbled alleyways one night we got lost and stumbled across a little kitchen, with the most devine smells coming from it, we were ushered upstairs to a secluded courtyard restaurant and stayed for a fabulous dinner, very friendly young men who knew their food and wines attending us.The owner bustling around meeting people , we loved...

You'll find the Marco Polo Café off a small street far away from the main tourist areas of Rhodes. You won't find someone beckoning you to come in, instead you'll find a beautiful and peaceful outdoor courtyard where they serve high quality international cuisine with strong Greek influences. The kitchen is downstairs and it is always a mini-drama to see... More

It was a recommendation from our first night and when we eventually found it, the man was a bit brusque but offered to take a reservation for another day as they were full. It was worth coming back as the atmosphere was lovely and the food was very good indeed, though a bit pricey. We had a three course meal... More

Our hotel recommended Marco Polo for our anniversary dinner which they booked for us. They said don't be fooled by the outer appearance or the fact that it is a hotel. Wanting to be able to find it I headed off the day before so I knew where it was. I found a door in an ally way with a... More
