Somewhere in the heart of the old town of Rhodes someone can find this atmospheric restaurant. There are only 10 - 12 tables in the small yard under an old water mill , lots of flowers and of course there is Effie . Who's Effie ? The owner and the soul of this gem. Speaking many languages she is always... More

Having somehow missed the Marco Polo Cafe rooftop experience during our autumn 2012 trip, we aimed to make-up for this by (after our first meal there!) choosing it for our last-night meal. (Sadly, this didn't transpire as a torrential rain-storm prevented the Cafe from opening ... damn!) Still, the meal we did enjoy there a few nights earlier - my... More

I dined in Marco Polo once as suggestion from my hotel for a more fancy dining option. The inner court of a medieval house provides with a very scenic dining place and the food is really tasty. I had the pistachio lamb which was delicious. I have to say that pricewise this is not a budget restaurant but some of... More

We liked it so much we went three times. The setting is beautiful, the food is of the highest quality and more refined without being pretentious. The feta in filo pastry with honey and sesame was lovely and lamb chops with pomegranate sauce were delicious - so tender and cooked medium rare exactly as requested. The house white wine is... More

The food at Marco Polo's restaurant appears simple, but the flavors have remarkable depth. This is not known anly for the food but it has a host of other goodies,... More

We visited this restaurant after several attempts to book in previous years. It is always fully booked in August so pre-book a couple of days in advance. The larger than life owner, a very sociable and entertaining lady, makes you feel welcome and at home. The food was from very good to excellent. I strongly recommend the tuna steak prepared... More

We had a wonderful evening at the Marco Polo restaurant - lovely garden, delicious food, friendly and efficient service, everything we could have wished for - and by far the best of the meals we ate in Rhodes.

Though there was a little silliness in the beginning ("Do you have a reservation?" in a restaurant that was close to empty when we arrived), this was and will probably be the best restaurant experience we got on the island of Rhodes. We skipped the starters and went straight for the mains. It looked so good that we forgot to... More

I had heard a lot about this restaurant before visiting. Thats why in the begining I was a bit disappointed because I expected much more. After thinking it over after a while I am clear that it is good value for money. The cousine is mostly mediterranean and the food is simplistic with no exaggerations or experimental creativity. The tastes... More
