We were recommended to visit this restaurant and to book a table. Glad we did. A very busy restaurant but still quiet for a fantastic evening out. The food was excellent, the staff were very helpful and the setting is first class. It may be a little difficult to find on your first visit but we found helpful people to... More

Nireas is one of our favourites when we visit Rhodes and we didn't fail to visit it during our last trip. I really love the little "piazza" it is situated on. So calm and cool despite being almost next to the touristic little alleys of the old town. The service is attentive and friendly and the food very good. A... More

Off the beaten track so quiet and atmospheric. Excellent, friendly host and staff. I would have eaten anything from the menu and couldn't decide but in the end we had the shared fish platter - have never tasted such succulent mussels! We only had limited time in Rhodes Town otherwise we would have eaten there again.

Before we had even ordered we were given a complimentary glass of Prosecco each. The grilled octopus we ordered was cooked to perfection & the prawn saganaki a wonderful mix of flavours for the palate. Well worth the visit at 25 Euro per person for 2 starters, 2 mains and drinks.

Another stunning alfresco setting off the main strip! Another restaurant for the top 10 in Rhodes Old Town? Priced by the kilo, our Sea-bass was filleted, boned and served in the Greek way with a traditional Greek salad and a lemon olive oil drizzle...wow! Not the greatest seafood fan but the food here was amazing and the hospitality of Theodore... More

We only stopped here to kill some time having missed out bus, and whilst the staff trying to stop you and forcing you into their eatery are a real nuisance, we had the best Latte ever here. If the food is anything like it it must be wonderful, but we had already eaten at the time.

Just around the corner from the tourist traps, this restaurant is in a lovely quiet area. Just ask and you will find it, in the centre of the old town. Seriously good seafood.....the owner is passionate about fish and seafood and is also very interesting to talk to. The staff speak brilliant English and are absolutely lovely too. We had... More
