Visiting your Greek family

Eating at Mama Sofia's is like visiting the Greek family you didn't know you had. They are welcoming, friendly and sad to see you go. If you don't clear your plate they worry about you! The food is excellent, the spicy feta is outstanding - must try. The family run place seems to have been around... read more

This restaurant was recommended to us, and it is a real treasure. We ended up having a couple of dinners and a lunch there - great Greek food and the staff were welcoming every time.

We returned yesterday from Rhodes, one of the best experiences was the this mealwe have at Mama Sophia. We arrived after about 15 minutes of searching through the small alleys of the old city, we were received by the son of mama Sophia Stavros and his brother Yannis. The food was great, service was great. We went back again last... More

We came after reading tripadvisor's recommendations. We got a wonderful welcome, asked for vegetarian recommendations and got a delicious selection of local vegetarian and vegan dishes. After we inquired, mama Sofia came out of the kitchen to say hello. Highly recommended!

I just read the experience of a certain "Brian W" who seems to be American but used the title "worst seafood in grease" American? Grease instead of Greece? Apparently he's not aware of the real Greek hospitality. Every time I came back to Rhodes my Greek friends kissed me and I did the same, male or female doesn't matter, adult... More

This was recommended to us from one of the traders. We really enjoyed our lunch there. We had chicken on skewers with salad and potatoes. Not skimpy in food portions. Went inside to use the ladies and it was an interesting trip upstairs with all the pictures on the walls. Very clean. Good service.

We visited Rhodes {our favorite Greek isle} and had the good fortune to have a superb lunch at Mama Sophia's Taverna, located in the Old Town, behind the Bell Tower. I ordered stuffed squid,expecting the usual 5-6 inch long but was brought a large platter completely covered by one very large squid! The food was outstanding, the service great and... More
