From the minute we walked up, the staff made us feel right at home. Nice intimate setting with street music from our table (not restaurant employees). This felt like a truly Greek meal in a very touristy area. The value was excellent, with large portions (and FULL glasses of wine and beer). We will be going back.

Fantastic experience! The food was excellent, freshly prepared, typically Greec, and very very tasty! Even more importantly, our hosts were very nice and helpful, they helped us find a hotel room for seven people in high season. Maria is lovely. I highly recommend this place!

In a town where food can be expensive for tourists, this taverna offers a great deal to taste various options: the greek platter ($16 for two) serves tsatsiki, fried calamari, stuffed grape leaves, stuffed tomatoes, pastitsio,moussaka, meat balls and stifado. Affordable and delicious!

Yiannis has great quality as a person and this is reflected in his family taverna. I went more than once in my week in Rhodes!eucharisto

Since it was recommended in the Lonely Planet guidebook, and had received encouraging reviews on trip advisor, my boyfriend and I visited Yiannis Taverna. Firstly, it is only several metres from a public toilet. But, more importantly, the service was terrible. When we asked if we could have more time to decide what to order, the owner rolled her eyes.... More

We went there because it advised is in the Lonely Planet guide (Greek Islands 2014) and I wonder why. We went in the middle of the afternoon, ordered a Greek plate. We heard the microwave ring a few times, the food came pretty quickly and I didn't see any real cooking... and surely enough some parts of our meal were... More

So pleased to have stumbled across this delightful taverna tucked away in Old Rhodes Town. It's an authentic Greek café and it was good to see the locals using it too.

This was listed in our guide book, excellent place to eat away from the crowds and next to a very good supermarket for cheap Greek produce.

I saw all these comments on this site, so when I stumbled across this place (on accident) and recognized the grandma, I went in. It was horrible, as if I was eating in there livingroom! They were yelling to each other, there was no asking 'how was your meal?' and my peppersteak was burned. Needless to say we left very... More
