A stronghold of fresh & tasty food.

A family-run taverna ( I think the cooking is done by two older men while the granny is supervising ! ), in a small street off the main street Sokratous ( Old Town ). As we weren't hungry, we popped in to have a drink, but as soon as we sat down all kinds of lovely smells came penetrating our... read more

Served by three generations, very characterful owners, lovely meal, complimentary dish for starters and liqueurs to finish - watch out, they are very strong if you are a light weight like me!!

Ahh, Yiannis. I've been here many times across the years, and it has been consistantly genuine and wonderful every single time. The food is delicious, truly traditional Greek food, the taste of home. To me, this is the epitome of Greek cuisine. I have never tasted better tzatziki, and Yiannis makes the best baklava in the world without question -... More

Great food and friendly service from a family run hotel off the main drag in Rhodes. Great value including a complimentary course while our orders arrived - as well as a complimentary ouzo afterwards.

Great for a selection of basic dishes. Generous portions but tending towards stodgy and sameness of flavours. Service efficient. Won't break the budget.

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.
