“Great place to go!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

This was an interesting restaurant located right in the middle of Lardos, Rhodes, GR, with a very mixed clientele, which made it even more interesting! The menu offers a variety of options, from Greek food to traditional steak. I ordered the steak "blue", which there means "rare." I can't say it was really rare as with what you get in America, but no matter where you eat in Greece, and you like your steak rare, remember to order it "blue." One of my friends ordered the pork which came with a ton of different vegetables and was also delicious. The owner walks around from table to table making sure that all guests are satisfied with their meal! Service was excellent and there was no sense of rushing any customer even though the place was quite full. There is outdoor dining available. It was a lovely experience!

“Roulas open during the winter months”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2013

Roulas remains open Friday, Saturday and Sunday during the winter months. It is the most popular Greek restaurant in the Lardos area. The service by Yannis and Maritsa is always pleasant and prompt. The food preparation is constantly overseen by Mike, the quality always tip top and the portions generous. It is a regular and frequent venue for local expatriates and in the summer a very popular venue for returning visitors. its popularity speaks for itself regarding the high standard this restaurant keeps year in year out. A must visit for those holidaying in the areas surrounding Lardos such as Lindos, Pefkos, Lothiarika and Kiotari etc. There is an excellent Taxi service and in the summer a taxi rank in the square. There is a local bus service as well. All inclusive holidays are good for the budget but you can't beat getting out to a local village and trying the food served in a village restaurant.

“Share a plate....”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

Excellent food and plenty of it too. Ate here a couple of times when we last visited Rhodes and glad to see the service and food is still just as good. Also check out the Yamas bar just round the corner, great atmosphere and great people too.

“Best restaurant around for food & customer service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2013 via mobile

We were recommended to go to this restaurant & we are so glad we did.
Excellent portion sizes, well cooked & presented, very friendly family run business.
The ribs are a total must as are the garlic mushrooms, pizzas, steaks etc etc, you even get a free little after dinner fruit & alcohol shot that miraculously relieves any bloated felling if youve over eaten.
The restaurant is situated in a quiet little village off the touristy beaten track, just off the square, we went a couple of times during our holiday even though we were in an inclusive hotel about 11 miles away, it was that good!!!
On our last visit there had been a problem with the local bus & as it was end of season taxis were sparse & we found ourselves stranded, the restaurant owner bent over backwards by driving our party (in his own car) back to our hotel, having to do 2 trips as there were 6 of us. He would not even accept any payment from us.
If you ever go to rhodes island please, make a detour to this restaurant for a meal, you will not be dissapointed, even the locals eat here ( a good indication of excellent food that wont break the bank).
