“Beautifull locatiation”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013

This is highly praised restaurant on the island. It was indeed good, but not that special. Perhaps it was because they had just opened for the season, but few of the items on the menu were actually available. Tsatziki was a little bitter to my taste......

“Great ambience in town square of Lindos, Rhodes.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

This place is large, airy, and located right on the town square. Excellent food and service. The night we were there it was very busy, but that only added to the atmosphere. It is a good idea to reserve even though the place is large. There is not an outside terrace, but after dinner it is quite pleasant to take a walk, get gelato, and sit in the town square. Lovely place with delicious food!
You will not be disappointed.

“A great restaurant surprise at the entrance of Lindos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2012

Hungry from our travel that morning from Rhodes Old Town, we took a chance of this good-looking exterior on the main square before entering the town to see the sights of Lindos.
We were thrilled to find a true tasting experience with a great chef in the kitchen, perpetuating almost three generations of Mavrikos family restaurant management; the glorious history of the restaurant, including attracting celebrities, is retold in a great New York Times piece from years past and is posted on the wall. The tradition of fine cooking yet casual setting remains valid as we found from our perfectly-prepared dishes and easygoing atmosphere with children. There was something for everyone's taste and clearly made to order; we could even buy a bottle of wine---for one! The interior is cool and calm and green, a great place to prepare (or recover from) the bustling crowds of tourists at high season in Lindos.

“Lovely traditional place in the main square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2012

We had a drink here and a snack lunch on a visit to Lindos in October. It is outside the old town in the central shady square and it's a great place to watch the world go by. Good friendly service but more expensive than some places, especially the drinks (due to its prime position I guess). Lindos does tend to be pricey due to its popularity. The food was average - OK but nothing special.

“Best in Lindos”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 22, 2012

Lindos can be tricky- lots of tourists, lots of restaurants. Which to choose? Well, after several visits, we finally found a superb restaurant. You will have a fine dining experience here- not just the usual menu items. It's been around a long time, so there's a real sense of pride in the service, in the food, in the overall atmosphere. And, amazingly, it's right on the main square as you arrive. So the only thing you give up is a great view, which many of the more touristy restaurants, higher on the hill, do have. But boy is it worth it!
