The restaurant we were going to eat at was closed for the winter, and a friendly native suggested we try Koykos Guesthouse restaurant. It's tucked away in one of the small streets behind the convent. It was packed with Greeks, including families with children and was very lively. We had an exceptional meal combining the Bekri Meze with the Koulouria,... More

Good house wine and a great selection of food. Greek music and very warm atmosphere. My favorites are the barbecue chicken and jacket potato.

This is the most charming place with excellente food in Rhodes. We had best time ever here. And we came and came back. The food is so good! Their pastries, salads, garlic pita bread are esquisite. For 30€ for two you can eat very abundant. I loved their youghurt with honey and nuts for dessert. We loved this place.

We visited Koukos on a Saturday night. We had to wait for an hour for a table, so next time we'll have to book early. The food was nice, but average. Everyone was smoking inside, the only non smoking area was outside. At the end, we had to ask the waiters for the receipt.

We have been coming to Rhodes for 15 years and on our last night we decided to dine here at the Koykos Café. How I wished we had decided to call in here before. It always looked so busy but we found lots of tables inside and the Meze we had was delicious. It is a lovely little hidden gem... More

Great food, as long as you are prepared to eat smoke. This is the same for the non smoking area. We asked for no smoking and was placed on a table next to a large open window, to the smoking court yard. The smoke just came wafting through, had to leave.

I went there twice for dinner and once for breakfast. The food is very good and the service is not bad. The female waitresses are much friendlier than the male ones. The Greek coffee is made in a traditional way and for breakfast they have a small bakery inside where they make everything fresh. I highly recommend this place if... More
