Avoid - Sparking water and sprite for €10

Over priced drinks, €2.20 for bread basket which we didn't ask for, intimidating big staff and average food. Felt too afraid to even say anything. Just don't go there, would ruin your day.

Worst rip-off ever. Avoid like the plague! We ordered a small beer and a small coke and got served huge cans of 1,0 liter each, amounting to a total of 19 € (9 € + 10 €). Couple next to us ordered two large beers and got two cans of 2,0 liter each for 38 € (2x 19 €). When... More

Not the greatest place, but the staff are so friendly the beer is cold and it's close to the cruise liner dock. Strongly advise a visit.

The worst food, the worst prices. Awful. Run away. Keep walking to ANY other place. They will do anything to run up your bill using shady tactics.

Had my worst experience in Rhodes thanks to this restaurant. Parched after a long walk on a hot day, we stopped for some drinks. The restaurant staff completely ripped us off, over-charging for drinks and serving us an enormous margarita that we clearly didn't want. They refused to take it back and we were forced to pay a high price.... More

My son and I were encouraged into The Gate and ordered two cans of Fanta Orange drink. I went to the WC and noticed that the taverna inside was very dirty so we didn't order any food. Two huge glasses of ice and watered down orange arrived. We were asked for 10 Euros which was excessive. The staff looked very... More

Worst meal we had during whole stay - very pricy too and felt we were ripped off - especially after seeing prices for same meal in other establishments. The staff could not have cared less - were only interested in getting customers in and then they were sat at a table drinking and smoking and only came and looked after... More

We called in here for a cool drink in the morning, we ordered a fresh orange juice and a cola. 12.90 euro, I was flabbergasted. Everywhere else on the way in was advertising fresh orange at 2 euro, they charged me 7.90 euro and 5 euro for the cola. My mistake i did not look at the drinks list first.... More

Expensive and unclear on prices, No idea how much the massive drinks were until the bill arrived. A large beer was 16 euro and contained 4 pints, which is ridiculous in a hot country when you want a cold beer. By the time you are a few mouthfuls in, its warm. It's a gimmick and a rip off......
