Our Traditional Cuisine ArtAt our Cuisine Art you can enjoy our famous Traditional Greek Cuisine, as well as the unique flavors of the island. A unique spot for a drink or a cocktail, accompanied by the sounds of Greek and Modern Music.Greek CuisineGreek cuisine is an extremely satisfying culinary adventure, since Greece is the country that gave birth to the symposiums and the Epicurean philosophers. Archestratos in 330 B.C. wrote the first cookbook in History. The unique tastes are some of the things which set Rhodes apart. Rhodian herbs, collected from our mountains , are renowned for their taste, scent and healing properties.

My wife and I visited on a couple of occasions mainly because of the large TV to watch a couple of World Cup games, however we soon discovered that the food at Hippocampus was really pretty good. Another friendly welcome and first time round we had really lovely hummus and tzatziki, followed by tasty chicken gyros and souvlaki - only... More

Kostos, Manolis and both Nikos chiefs will take care of you breakfast, lunch and dinner appetites. We enjoyed several meals here and the hospitality, service, and most of all food, was beyond expectations! Thanks guys, we will definately come by again when on your island.

We found the restaurant Hippocampus after a few days in Ixia. The staff are great, especially the waitors Costas and Manolis. The food is delicious and the best we've had in all Rhodes. After two weeks of staying in Rhodes we leave with around 8 visits to this great restaurant. If you are in Ixia this place is a must.... More

My partner and I stayed up the road from the Hippocampus and ate in many of the restaurants along the main street (to try to support local restaurants). We found the owner to be welcoming, hospitable and very friendly, the food was delicious, I thoroughly recommend the pasta dishes and we got a free ice-cream! Overall the place was clean,... More

We went here on our first night because it was the closest to the Nathalie Hotel and it had had okay reviews. The food was dried out there was only one other couple in there, we think we can see why the chips were cold, the only good thing I can say about it is it was cheap.

1. The restaurant has been closed since 10.12.2013 for the season, while the review took place on the 5th of January 2014. 2. The case that there was only one couple having dinner does not lead to a dysfunctional kitchen, instead, logically, the service was increased relative to peak time. 3. Hippocampus Restaurant, operating since 1985, has served thousands of... More

We were in Ixia in October and sadly the Hippopotamus shut after we had been in the area for only a week. However it was a really good experience eating there, and the staff were lovely and attentive, the meals offered were varied and interesting and we were given little extras such as fruit and liqueurs - which is always...
