Beautiful alfresco setting. Tucked away in a quiet square off the beaten track. Dine on fresh seafood and fresh vegetables (many of them organic) under a pergola overflowing with jasmine,honeysuckle, Bougainville and a 25 year old grapevine. The Tsikis Family is always happy to meet new guest and welcome back many return customers ( some that have been coming since the opening in 1989)!

If you don't have the pleasure of eating here, at least go for the homemade limoncello! Greek style- be sure to order sides as menu is a la carte.

If you ever find yourself on the island of Rhodes, Greece you will be doing yourself a great injustice if you do not have dinner at Nireas Restaurant in the Old Town section of the island. The streets are mainly cobblestone that twist and turn and are occupied by a number of small shops and locally owned restaurants. The food... More

Nireas is not a tourist trap. They don't have someone trying to usher you into the restaurant because they truly do not need it. The food is fabulous, the dessert is even better. The owner is friendly and welcoming as well as all the staff. I would recommend Nireas to anyone heading to Rhodes, it is not to be missed!... More

Whilst wandering around the back streets of the Old Town of Rhodes, we came upon this restaurant, it looked very nice with an outside seating terrace, so we sat down and studied the menu, unfortunately for me it is a fish restaurant, something I am not too keen on, so we decided that we would just have a drink before...

This restaurant is a hidden gem, in the old town of Rhodes, difficult to find, but do take the time and effort to find it, you will not regret. Here you get the authentic atmosphere and excellent seafood and not to forget the homemade desserts of the wife of Theodoros. Theodoros and his family is so warm and welcoming and... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant when we left the tourist streets of Rhodes old town and wow we are glad we did. This is a fish restaurant.
