“good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Had a meal here whilst on hols in Pefkos, good food and views over Pefkos from the terrace. Very much a family affair, at least 3 generations work here. The air-con and fans on the ceiling were welcome as well, over 40C when we ate here.

“EAT HERE!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2012

This is a must try restaurant. I cannot add much to the previous post, my partner and I also chose to eat here on our last night. Lovely food, lovely people, lovely view. It's a 2 minute walk up from the main road in Pefkos. There are so many lacklustre restaurants trying to make a quick buck on the main drag. What you get here is care and quality.

This restaurant will not disappoint... A tip the pork chop, bigger than my head and so succulent!!

“Wonderful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 28, 2012

We visited this lovely restaurant during our week in Rhodes and were so happy with the food & service, we came back on our last night as we always like to make our last meal a special one. The hill is a bit of a trek but its only for a couple of minutes & is worth it when you get to the top.

Before you go up the stairs to the restaurant, have a look at the unexpected little church - I say church as I don;t know what else to call it - at the foot of the steps. Its a tiny little place filled to the brim with greek religious icons, beautiful. You can also light a candle if thats your thing - we always do as it just feels right when you're in there, its magical. We remarked that you couldn't leave a place like that open to the public in this country as sadly everything inside would be stolen.

Anyway back to the restaurant itself. We were lucky enough on both our visits to get a table at the front of the balcony overlooking pefkos. The service is excellent and we loved the food, my husband had steak & I tried swordfish for the 1st time, it was delicious. Some reviewers have mentioned the prices are slightly higher than other places, however, compared to some meals we had & especially in Lindos where we were charged a lot for mediocre food, we thought the Tsambikos was excellent value for money - the view alone across the town to the mediterranean is priceless!!! We would definitely return. The bakery downstairs has the most amazing food, doughnuts the size of car tyres & THE most delicious pastries.

Take a trip up the hill on your visit to Pefkos, you won't be disappointed.

“Superior food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2012

This is one of the better restaurants in Pefkos.
Service is excellent and attentive and the food is great.
Being up the hill, the view is lovely and worth the little-bit-more that the bill comes to compared to some places.
