Simply excellent!

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... read 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.

A nicely postioned restaurant with a great selection of seafood. We selected this restaurant based on the trip advisor ratings and the 2013 award for excellence, ....BIG MISTAKE ! We had the most expensive dish on the menu, the seafood platter. ALL the shellfish was heavily over cooked which meant that most of it was like rubber. The staff were... More

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
