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

When walking through Old Town, you can feel quite intimidated by the plethora of restaurant staff trying to coax you into their restaurant or bar. At the end of season, when we were there, quite a few places had very little clientele but were still enthusiactically trying drag you in. We had noticed that Mama Sofia's was still reasonably busy,... More

Went here for dinner. The staff are all family, and made us feel very welcome. The food was beautiful and fresh. Next time we go to Rhodes, this will be our first place for dinner.

We spent one night in Rhodes town during our stay in Rhodes. Rhodes town can be extremely hit and miss when it comes to restaurants and some are a total rip off. I did my research on TA before we went so I'd recognise the names of the top 20. We had a stroll up and down the beautiful streets... More

You'll find Mama Sofia's on a street filled with restaurant and bars near the Palace of the Grand Masters. In front of each establishment, there will be a waiter or owner imploring you to come in. Mama Sofia's is the one that you want to select. This is the kind of friendly, lively, crowded experience that you are looking for... More

Picked this restaurant based on the trip advisor scores and very glad we did. Pics of the food choice really dont do the dishes justice.... within minutes of entering the restaurant you feel the pride and passion the staff have for their restaurant and genuinely the friendliest bunch without being at all invasive. Can't recommend this place enough, excellent in... More

The food is really good and the staff is attentive. We ate at Mama Sofia´s for a couple of nights during our stay, and was very pleased with the food. The menu contains a variety of both local and international dishes, so everyone will find something here. Our waiter told us the standard "tourist" phrases, "We´re family now, and I... More
