Very Aggressive.

On a recent trip to Rhodes, I walked passed The Gate on a number of occasions. The placed was closed on most occasions but was open when a big Cruis Ship was docked at the nearby Port. The Owner invited me in for a drink, and when I politley refused he became Hostile and Aggressive towards me... read more

Only had drinks here - ordered a medium beer, two lemonades and a slush puppy. The medium beer came in a Wellington boot shaped glass with '1.56 li' on it - no way this is a medium beer. All very amusing etc., but far too much for mid afternoon. The bill came to 26 euros - ridiculous. A tip for... More

We stopped here for a meal before we went to the airport to catch a flight home. Our responses are mixed, We didn't find it particularly expensive and in fact my meal was okay(prawn cocktail and spaghetti carbonara) which was quite tasty if nothing to rave about. My husband, however, was very disappointed; he had the spaghetti Bolognese which he... More

Like most people on this post, I too, had a horrible experience at The Gate. Everything others have said is true. The prices are beyond excessive, the staff is surly at best, and they could care less is you're happy or not, because they know you're a tourist and will never be back. My wife, brother-in-law, and sister-in-law stopped at... More

We join the chorus of all the reviewers who have warned people to stay away from "The Gate" restaurant-café. Four of us on a cruise ship visited it on Oct. 2, 2014, after being lured by a waiter who asked if the women wanted "little boots" of beer and the men "big boots." The glass boots arrived with oceans of... More

Just like most of the people going back to the port, we wanted to take some refreshments before leaving the island and since this restaurant is on the way back we decided to take two sodas. No prices on the menu, but we didn't care mainly because we had little time left and luggages with us. When asked for the... More

I stopped here for a drink with my wife and two children whilst we were in Rhodes Town. We ordered two small beers and two cokes. When the beers arrived they were each in a novelty boot shaped glass which held a litre - not small by anyone's terms. Another chap who was there with his family had the misfortune... More

We got charged 10€ for a sparkling water and a Fanata. The prices were written nowhere. For comparison this cost 3-4€ everywhere else on the island. This is a complete ripoff!!! I'm furious and angry

Hi everyone! My name is Biljana and I wanna share with you my bad experience from Rhodes.
