My preferred restaurant in Rhodes

This is our preferred restaurant in Rhodes. It's a family restaurant with great Greek dishes. The people are just amazing, they take care of you as you were a part of their family. GREAT PLACE TO BE;

We had dinner here last night and the food and service were great. You get a complimentary starter, which was very tasty and filling (a large serve too!). We had stuffed tomatoes and gyros, with a Greek salad. All delicious and generous serves. My tomotoes came with a nice bean mix, tzatziki and fried potatoes. The gyros came with fries,... More

Our rental host recommended Yiannis (and the place next door which we didn't get to try) and we really enjoyed our meal here. I think this was probably the best quality and most authentic Greek food we ate on our trip and the staff were excellent. Definitely worth visiting instead of one of the touristy places on Sokratous.

Yiannis has of a perfect location, at the heart of Rhodes' Old Town. The perfect place to stuff up that endless flow of Nordic tourists... Though, Yiannis remains a quite humble and simple place, sticking to traditional receipes, family-like atmosphere and comfy & generous food at very affordable rates. There, you are sure to get the best of traditional Greek... More

Without doubt the best food we have eaten in Rhodes. A little bit off the main drag and worth the effort of finding this taverna in Rhodes town. Not expensive. Highly recommended.

It was my first night in Greece and I wanted to have calamari. Yiannis wasn't far from my hotel, and it looked welcoming, authentic and inexpensive. The family matriarch was sitting at the front in traditional dress - she greeted me and confirmed they had calamari! Before it came, I was given a complimentary starter of pasta with tomato and...

Yiannis is an authentic greek tavern. The food was good, but nothing spectacular. The prices were favorable: We had 2 starters, 2 main dishes and 3 beers for 34€. It's a family business, you feel welcome and at home. We woud certainly come again the next time we visit Rhodos.
