Great food, excellent service, and the prices are fair. Better go there in the evening, then you can sit on the balcony, which has a nice view.

I loath eggplant (not a thing to confess to a Greek) but the un-orded welcome treat of that vegetable was surprisingly tasty. And the rest of the food was good too. A pleasant restaurant with good service with an outdoor setting.

We have now made Yiannis' a regular stop when visiting Rhodes. This is a family owned and operated restaurant located in Old Rhodes City. The food is delicious and authentic Greek! My husband says it reminds him of his Mom's and Yiayia's home-cooked family meals. The food was so fresh and so good that we actually ate dinner in this... More

In the old town but a few steps away from the beaten path, we discovered Yiannis by chance, but it was the only place in Rhodes where we simply had to come eat the second time. Food: best souvlaki in town, a greek salad to remember, delicious down to the last morsel, huge servings with a wide variety of tastes... More

The owner of our hotel we stayed in is a no nonsense woman. When we asked for recommendation for quality good food nearby we're informed about Yiannis. It is a family business. The service was fantastic, unpretentious! The food is superb. I think the meatballs are the best. I also tried the lamb special. The pasta sauce is also tasty.... More

We found this place and decided to eat lunch. I decided to use the restroom while the rest of us sat down, 6 adults and 2 children. When I found the restroom in the back I was stopped by the lady of the restaurant, she wanted to know if I were to eat there and I said yes. English is... More

We found this restaurant off the main drag as we were staying nearby. Mama sat outside daily watching the family run the restaurant and bringing them into touch if the service/food was not up to her exacting standards! Don't think posh - but lovely wholesome authentic Greek fayre at realistic prices for Rhodes old town. Have the house wine -... More

WOW! We had read about this little gem of a place tucked away, down one of the side alleys in the Old Quarter, in our Lonely Planet Greece book and decided to find it. It's quite hard to find, but we were determined! It looks very ordinary, but that's where ordinary ends! The grandfather and father cook and as they... More
