Local clientele, lovely decoration and great food

The first thing that catch your eye in the Koykos Cafe is the lovely decoration (parrot included!): guzukis hanging in the walls, original waiters' trays, etc. Second thing is the local clientele that gather around, always a good sign. And third, when you decide to take a seat here the quality of... read more

Delicious and popular with locals. A place for people of all ages on a quiet pedestrian street. Amazing bakery too and lots of room for everyone.

We found it by mistake but loved the food, hospitality and prices. If you are looking for good Greek food, that is the place for you.

This place was one of our two favourite restaurants we ate at while staying on Rhodes. While many restaurants were closed or quite empty this one was packed. We didn't have reservations and the host had to check if they had room. They asked if we were ok sitting in a smoking section and let us check it out. It... More

Different in its looks, in its taste in quality and quantity. It attracts you just by its premises and it seduces you as soon as you taste its dishes. Highly recommended

After a couple of days of mediocre restaurants, we were recommended Koykos and we loved it! Sorry about the Norweigan's experience below - the food arrived quickly on a busy Friday evening and the four members of staff that we came into contact with were friendly and helfpul, so I'd urge others to give this a try. Lovely aubergine feta... More

A really lovely restaurant, nice, charming and good food! However, we found the waiters quite "rude" he tended to ignore us and had an passive-aggressive attitude. we came to this place for lunch, first it took a while for the menu, then after ordering, we waited a good 20 minutes ++ for the food, after eating we waited an eternity...

15.03.2015 Me and my wife visited this restaurant in Rhodes town. Very friendly staff and nice setting and atmosphere. Reasonable prices and good location. Aubergine salat needs some garlic i guess :)

This place was the best restaurant we've been to during our 4 days stay in the island of Rhodes. It was also the most popular! Many restaurants were closed and the ones opened were having just a few tables with people. Koukos was full and seemed to be popular with locals too. We've chosen several dishes from the menu, some... More
