Charming place

Very good restaurant with good service. They speak very good italian and english. We ate a great spaghetti with fresh sea food. The prices are a little bit high, but the restaurant is in old city and they serve fresh sea food. We loved it!

Top food, excellent flavours, made by great women and men in the kitchen and served by the most lovely and entertainment men at the most divine place in the old town of Rhodes, in the holy shadows of a church and a mosque.

This was our first Greek meal on our several week trip through Greece and we compared every following meal to this one. Absolutely perfect moussaka and gyros, which was exactly what we were looking for. And I can still taste the delicious desert.

My sweetheart and I ate lunch at Mama Sofia's, and it was delicious.

We found this restaraunt near the end of our holiday which was a shame but visited on our last two days. We were made to feel very welcome and the food all round was excellent. My daughter said the pizza was amongst the best she'd tasted so ideal for all ages. We highly recommend a visit.

We visited Mama Sofia Restaurant twice in October and on both occasions the welcome was warm and the staff made us feel special. Three of us ordered different items from the menu ranging from traditional beef stefada to Lamb chops and all three meals were superb. The wine was house white and red which also was a good quality.

Mama Sofia's is consistently good. The food, wine list, service and ambience are excellent. The family who run the restaurant spare no effort in ensuring that their guests enjoy the best possible dining experience. In the Old Town? Looking for a special place to eat? Go there. You won't be disappointed.

What a find, where the locals and tourists eat. We got to join in a birthday celebration and sung Happy Birthday with a guitar accompaniment. The food and service was just great nothing too much trouble and best of all reasonable prices, Go there.
