We ate here for lunch, having just been for a cocktail in the Clock Tower. The staff were friendly & helpful & the food was delicious. I had the halloumi appetiser, & my boyfriend had the cheese filled meatballs. We both loved it!! We were asked if we wanted: "bread of garlic or bread of oregano" - this was delicious,... More

Quality of the food is veru good but most attractive side of this restaurant is hospitality of Stavros (Mama Sofia's son). You feel like you are at Mama Sofia's house and Stavros is trying to serve you. This is one of the best experience at Rhodes.

Great food and friendly service. This restaurant was is so popular, you have to wait up to ten minutes for a table. Prepare to wait to your food and drink when seated, it's just very busy, but worth the wait as portions are big and tasty. Adjoining the restaurant is a bar with loud music serving large fish bowl size... More

We visited this restaurant in the old town following the trip advisor list. We were immediately warmly welcomed. I note others found this approach to be a bit too much but I felt Stavros/Stephen was genuine in his efforts to make us feel welcome. He explained the choice of meals clearly and offered us a wine which was the best... More

I have been here before on several visits to the Island and loved it every time as it was recommended to us by one of our local friends in Rhodes. This was the first time me and my boyfriend had been to Rhodes together and his first time in Rhodes. This was one of our favorite places we ate while... More

The restaurant was recommended to us on our first night in Rhodes. The welcome was warm, food plentiful and staff attentive. There was a good buzzy atmosphere.

We went to Mama Sofia's based on the recommendation of our hotel (Avalon). They said this was a good place for traditional food. It is located right across from the bell tower on a busy walkway just outside the old city wall. When we arrived, we asked to sit outside, but there was no table free, so the owner asked... More

The food was Nice, but the table had ants running over it as it was outside. Its personal choice but the owner was a little over the top for me he was constantly telling us about his restuarant and the food, where it came from and such like and I found it a little overpowering. Other than that the Kleftiko... More
