Delicious food, great service

We visited on the a whim because it started raining heavily, but it was well worth the visit. The owner was lovely and really helpful, explaining to us his favourite dishes on the menu. We ordered the meat plate and the seafood plate to share between us, both which were delicious. Very busy even in... read more

After reading all the reviews we decided that this one is a must. The location is really nice and you will be welcomed to the restaurant by the all team. "you are now part of the family" this is the phrase that you`ll hear the entire evening as they will say it to everyone. I need to be really honest... More

My hubby had found this place on trip advisor, and we spotted it while walking around the old town. The owner was very friendly and we said we would come back when it was time to eat. Glad we did because we had a great meal. It was obviously a family place with plenty of banter between the staff and... More

I'm currently sat in the restaurant itself, and the fact I'm writing the review right now indicates how wonderful this place is. 10 out of 10, perfect food, perfect service, unique location. The owner of the venue is warm and funny with charisma I haven't seen in years, attentive and funny with customer service you just don't see Britain, or... More

Many of the restaurants in Rhodes play up their traditional Greek welcoming attitude. Mama Sofia's actually has the quality of food to back it up. The family does a great job of playfully interacting with their visitors, and we found the overall food and service experience to be the best we experienced in a week on Rhodes. So we went... More

A really excellent experience! Location: The restaurant is location just inside the old towns north west gate. Food: The food was exceptional. I had a plate of shellfish (which I ordered off the menu). The fish were both cooked and uncooked, and all delicious. Staff: Stavros and his brother Yannis, made us fell welcome from the moment we sat down.... More

we found this restaurant just wandering around the old town on our 2nd day in Rhodes. We were welcomed with friendliness and fun. Run by a family, you are treated as a member of the family as soon as you arrive. Wonderful menu choice and beautifully cooked. We enjoyed so much went back every night for the rest of our... More
