Description: Beautiful alfresco setting. Tucked away in a quiet square off the beaten track. Dine on fresh seafood and fresh vegetables (many of them organic) under a pergola overflowing with jasmine,honeysuckle, Bougainville and a 25 year old grapevine. The Tsikis Family is always happy to meet new guest and welcome back many return customers ( some that have been coming since the opening in 1989)!

“Cosy restaurant with tasteful home cooking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014

Family atmosphere - great host - nothing too complicated, just good food, with wonderful Mediterranean flavors. Very nice terrace and good location in the old centre of Rhodes.

“Superb family owned restaurant.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2014 via mobile

So far the best, and best value, meal in Rhodes. Specialising in seafood and traditional Greek fare but to a much higher level of quality than the ubiquitous tavernas that are in the main thoroughfares. The owner, Theodoros, is a natural host. He takes time to proudly explain all the fresh caught ingredients and all the home made, largely organic, dishes. We ate lunch, a fine Greek Salad, grilled octopus, calamari, sardines,home made potato chips, and interesting salted Mackerel. House white was very good, and it's not often I say that. We shall return for an evening mealand so far no other restaurant has come close to tempting us back for a return visit

“Theodoris is very hospitable”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2013

Highly recommend this informal, family-run restaurant. Situated away from the hustle and bustle of Old Town Rhodes, but very accessible. We had a relaxed meal outdoors iin a shaded, garden-like atmosphere. The food was fresh and wonderful. Theodoris helped us with our selections and treated us to homemade limoncello. Great afternoon dining experience.

“Away from the hustle and bustle”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 30, 2013

This family run place is tucked away from the honky tonk crowds. The food is just to our liking. Yes, it is seasonal but it is worth going a little away from the crowd to have some of the best sea food on the island. It is one of Rhodes special places with a Rutgers connection, believe it or not. If you are in town and looking to eat without the rush and crowds Nireas is where you should go.
