Very cozy restaurant with outdoor seating

We had some difficulties finding the restaurant, as GoogleMaps told us we were there and we were in a narrow street with no entrances in sight. Luckily we found a local who told us it was further down the street. The restaurant has a rooftop garden, very romantic with almost an Italian look. We... read more

We arrived early (7.30) without reservations and with two children. Luckily, a table was free until 1030! The meal was amazing, gluten free (coeliac) was no problem.. And the staff, all family, were very welcoming. Thank you!

Don't get me wrong, we had a couple of lovely meals in Greece before we discovered this place but they were quite simple. Nothing wrong with that - what is better than a beautiful grilled fish? But a lot of the menus we saw were very 'samey'. This was anything but. My husband does not like to go back to... More

We saw a couple of recommendations and it was worth the effort of finding this hidden gem on a back lane in Rhodes old town. Skip by the hawkers on the main street and head straight here! A great selection on the menu and excellent service!!

Excellent setting, although slightly off the beaten track so it was difficult to find. We reserved a table following a recommendation. The food was full of flavour and authentic, with something different to offer at great value. Drinks were reasonable with a bottle of prosecco costing 21 Euro. However, the service was slow at times, which resulted in us having... More

Came across this almost by accident, a very welcome surprise amidst quite mediocre neighbours. Not fancy, but a very pleasant garden setting and a very comfortable feel. House rose was very drinkable and an astonishing price given the dross we paid more for elsewhere! The chef is a young 23 but he really knows food and it showed in everything... More

A lovely rooftop restaurant in Old Town. The restaurant was well shielded from the elements on a very windy evening. The food was very well prepared and authentic Greek cuisine.

My husband and I were in Rhodes for vacation in May and went to Marco Polo twice...could not be more impressed! Seriously my husband has told everyone about it since we have been back to the States. First l, it is an absolutely lovely setting. Garden with twinkling lights in the trees, comfortable chairs and just wonderful character. The waiter... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant. Even with greek traditional food they bring a nice sweet twist to the recepies. Service very nice and we enjoyed it. Just be careful to not be seated beside the food elevator, it could be any I g if you are to close.
