Best Greek salad and home cooking!

This place is not fancy but if your looking for true homemade quality food come here! They bring you into the kitchen to select your hot dish and make fresh Greek salads for 4 euros. We had stuffed tomato and peppers with potatoes. All was excellent. Served with water and fresh bread. Highly... read more

With dishes that change almost every day, you can be sure you will experience real Greek food and not the garbage of "mousaka-tzatziki-souvlaki" that is served at the very touristic traps. Very cheap (around 15€ for two people) and really delicious, I felt like I was eating at my mother's house!

We got a recommendation for this lovely restaurant from a local, who said she eats there almost every day. The food is home-made, traditional, and tasty :-) Don't expect anything fancy but rather a home, family kitchen, and you'll get a real authentic experience.

We went there yesterday, with high hopes (after it being recommended to us by our hotel host, and after reading the great reviews), but we were dissapointed. The chicken (in wine) was dry and tough, the pork (in beer) way too salty and everything together was way too oily. And next to it the service was polite, but nothing big... More

Boukia-Boukia, which means "bite bite" in Greek, reminds me of the best of my grandmas cooking. Recommended to me by a local. Great little gem in old town, where the wife & mother in law cook a fresh menu daily. Extremely authentic, delicious with a warm atmosphere for very reasonable prices. Only negative is that I found it the night... More

Really loved the food at Boukia and felt compelled to write a review for this family run establishment. Particularly loved the Dolmades, the chicken & ham roll, and the stuffed zucchini flowers. Such a treat and can't wait to go back this week!

This tavern was recommended to me by Mara from the hotel Attiki, where I stayed, but I would probably have selected this place anyway for dinner, when wandering through the old town of Rhodes. The place looks attractive enough from the outside and especially there was - great exception here - no soliciting waiter in front (which always makes me... More

We went to Boukia Boukia for lunch as recommended by Hotel Attiki. It was just a 3 min. walk from our hotel. From the outside, it looked like any other restaurant. Once inside, the lady explained to us all the dishes displayed and how it taste like - sour, sweet, spicy etc. We chose egg plant with potatoes chips, egg... More

We've just had a delectable meal for €30 including 1 litre of retsina. I don't go for cheap food, just well cooked and moreish. The excellent bread was used to mop up superb juices by all the patrons in view. When in Rhodes town don't miss this gem. Small, friendly and genuine. We loved it, pity the Polish review was...

Very happy to have kept my word and tried it the next day, then frequented it every day for the remainder of the trip for either lunch or dinner!
