“Overpriced, hidden costs, awful food”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2010

I went to Fainos restaurant last week on a day trip to Rhodes...looking forward to eating the wonderful greek food I'm used to. However, I was extremely dissappointed with this restaurant. The waiter convinced me and my partner to eat at this restaurant because they served 'traditional greek food. He said the kleftiko is cooked in foil with feta and potatoes cooked in olive oil and lemon.

When the food arrived the kleftiko was actually unrecognisable as the dish as it was served in a casserole dish where the lamb (of very poor quality) was swimming in what just tasted like bisto gravy with a meagre helping of potatoes slopped on top. The feta came in foil and was nice at least...although it was charged as an extra to the kleftiko (which was already pricey).
My partner had chicken souvlaki...however the chicken had no seasoning so was really just a chicken skewer...minus any souvlaki seasoning. Usually souvlaki comes with pitta bread as part of the dish and this was what the waiter had mislead us to believe also when he asked whether he wanted garlic bread or pitta when ordering.
We only had bottled water to keep down prices...but failed again here as this was excessively overpriced.
Witnessing another couple receive their bill, where the man was shocked to see that there were extra costs that had been suggested to be included in the meals.
When our bill arrived it was the same story...feta had been charged on top of the poor kleftiko and pitta on top of the souvlaki (chicken skewer).
To add to this the waiter that served us appeared to be drunk.

Our day trip to Rhodes on the whole was lovely but this restaurant really did bring the day down as we had hoped to enjoy some delicious greek food. As it was only a day trip (also my partners first experience of greece) we were unable to rectify the experience by eating elsewhere at a restaurant that would serve real, greek food.

I would recommend people NOT to go to this restaurant as it is misleading and overpriced and the food is terrible.
