Fantastic place to eat. We ordered so much fresh fish and it was so lovely and you can taste how fresh it was. Really romantic we had Greek wine which was incredible.

When you go to a place like rhodes town there are plenty of places to choose from all telling you they are the best and their fish was caught thus morning etc etc. For me fish moving in a tank or in a fridge means it fresh. Thus family owned and stavros the own is a find. Charming and funny.... More

We had classic Greek dishes (kleftiko and goat), both dishes were tasty. Service was very friendly, and the location is great, right next to the clock tower in the old city on Rhodes.

We went to Mama Sofia's on the recommendation of our hotel, and we were not sorry. It would be easy to mistake it for the dozens of others that look identical. We were immediately smitten with our waiter, Stavros. His first words to us were- "I've been waiting for you since 1967! What took you so long?" I had the... More
