Nice place with mainly seafoods. Owners - local family, and family atmosphere inside. Restaurant a bit outside of tourists place in old town, but in very quiet place. Average prices and reasonable choice for old town.

We enjoyed one of the best evenings ever in this courtyard under an ancient tree, eating fine seafood and fish while we chatted with the patriarch and his family. Away from the crowds on the main streets, this quiet and classy restaurant is an oasis in the Old Town. Our host suggested the house white wine, admitting that while it... More

We are here one evening and had the nicest souvlaki that I have ever had. After our meal we noticed that the restaurant also has a cafe area and the cakes and pastries on show were amazing. We returned the following day for cake and coffee at this ideally situated place in the harbour. Cakes tasted as good as they... More

Excellent seafood and ambience in the Old Town - out of the busy Socratus-street in a more elegant area. The family who runs the place are doing a lovely job and I fell in love with the +90 yrs grand-dad barbecuing the fish. <3 Worth more than one visit!

Nireas,which is inside the old town,is one of unique ones with a great atmosphere under a very old tree. Seafood is fresh and delicious. We liked grilled octopus and sea bass but calamari was under average. Of course Greek salad with capari and anchovy is a real difference. Try white house wine.

Our hotel booked this restaurant for us for my 50th birthday. The guy who runs the restaurant were very friendly and he had also organised a surprise dessert for me. The restaurant setting is very nice and so was the food - well recommended. Thank you for a nice evening.

What a perfect way to finish our last night in Rhodes. Eating under the beautiful canopy, beneath the blue sky that turned into a stunning starlit night. The waiters were really friendly, the food was delicious and they even helped us with gluten free dishes! I would highly recommend the grilled vegetable platter for 2 and grilled fresh fish of...

Up and downs: very touristic, but very nice location, the owner was really friendly and nice, one waiter was quite brusque, but not rude. Downs: the food is quite good, but portions extremely small compared to all the good restaurants I have been to in Rhodes, and you have to order veggies and side dishes, usually always included in your...
