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)!

Recommended to us by a long time resident. No gaudy photos of the food, no aggressive staff trying to drag you off the street, mostly local guests. Fish, fish and fish on the menu so you know you are in the right place for fresh delicious seafood heaven. I has the fish platter (sea bream, a pile of mussels and... More

Lovely evening with beautiful seafood setting a traditional family run restaurant. It was a privilege to meet and share a drink with the creator of Nireas. Thank you for a fabulous evening.

The food and ambiance here are great. Send like the place to go in old town for fish and prices are reasonable. The proprietor is friendly. The house wine is also quite good.

We were recommended to go to this restaurant for a fish meal and the recommendation was absolutely spot on. My wife and I had a whole Sea Bass. Cooked and boned to perfection. If you after a great fish meal in Rhodes, then this restaurant is really the place to go. An absolute stand out, not to be missed.

The owner is a consummate performer but at least he delivers the goods. All the staff were helpful and pleasant to deal with. Excellent seafood family restaurant which stretched our budget a little, but at least every mouthful was worth it. Highly recommended.

Amazing fresh fish garnished with traditionally cooked vegetables. Good vibes, a really nice restaurant owner, and located far away from the touristy and hectic atmosphere of Rhodes Town.

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.
