Perfect meal in Old Town

Yannis and his family are the perfect hosts and had us laughing all the way through our meal! On arrival, they provided two free glasses of white wine which was lovely. The Seabass was fresh and the best I had on Rhodes! My boyfriend had the slouvaki and loved it. We even got some baklava for... read more

We had an evening meal here and found the owner and his wife perfect hosts (sorry cannot remember there names). We had two fish platters one as on the menu and the other with lobster, it was perfect. The owner was very experienced and had exceptional knowledge of the Greek wines and his advice was well worth it the wine... More

We ate here two times during our stay and great food both times. And the staff is friendly and service minded. Recommend specially the stuffed mushroom and Kleftiko.

Mama Sofia's restaurant is longtime famous for its special tasty menu it serves. Family owned with smiling personel ready to serve us. We passed by this restaurant 2 times until we found a seat for all 4 of us. This restaurant is constantly full of people and this says a lot. I saw many locals also having their dinner there....

Nice outside seating, very warm and friendly service, nice menu choices. Price is a little higher than some other places but by very little. Can't say it deserves to be so much higher up the Trip Advisor list than some of the other places we ate but still well worth a visit.

I just got back from my holiday in Rhodes and I have to say that this was by far my favourite restaurant! My partner and I visited here twice mainly because the food is to die for, the view is beautiful and the staff couldn't get any more welcoming! This restauarant is located in the middle of the caste and... More

We went here on our first night in Rhodes, Old Town. It was recommended to us by the hotel. From memory, the restaurant was established in around 1967. If you walk past the restaurant you will see all the flags on the first floor recommending the restaurant, including one from Trip Advisor. The recommendations come for a reason. The food... More

The waiter was not pushy, and didn't start talking to us before we started looking at the tables, which was a very pleasant change of pace. Apparently a wine lover, the waiter brought us free glasses of a Greek wine to enjoy while he told us about the various specialties. Our waiter was very passionate about his establishment, and a...
