We did not eat there, however, the staff was not friendly on receiving people. We asked for a table and they told us from far away NOO without even speaking to us.

We loved our dinner at Marco Polo. The outdoor garden terrace was a gorgeous place to eat- very 'Greek'- I had only been in Greece for the first time and for a couple of hours when we went and it felt like what I thought it would- charming, with amazing colors. Our food was incredible! We took a peek in... More

We stumbled on this restaurant in the back streets of old town Rhodes. In short it was just fantastic. Especially the lamb souvlaki. We also had some shrimps and fish file. All very delicate and one of the best meals we ever had. And the waiter as well as the owner ware very nice and friendly.

I know this restaurant now for more than steven years, and the quality just improved every time. The choice of dishes has grown, attractive fusion and all with the best ingredients, prepared by the chief with amazing phantasy. The garden has fairytale dimensions and with Effie' s flair and diva allure a visit to Marco Polo is really a feast.... More

A truly unique experience of dining in a old mansion courtyard and tasting the high quality, very tasty food at Marco Polo. Everything we tried was delicious and was complimented by excellent, warm service by a young, enthusiastic team and Ms Effie the chef/owner! A true delight! Highly recommended and not to be missed!

Probably the best restaurant in Rodos town. Yes the service can be slow but you don't mind because of the beautiful surroundings. The food is excellent! Reservations are a must!

Even though it doesn't fall on the cheap side (50€ for two people is higher than average by Greek dining standards), money well spent! The place is lovely & romantic, a wonderful little yard with flowers inside the Old Town. The dishes are very original (still thinking about the pork fillet with fig I had..) and delicious, and a huge... More
