We were so happy to find this beautiful place in Faliraki. It should be in all of the guide books. The cafe is gorgeous, with fresh herbal teas from the garden, wonderful milkshakes and home made (healthy) desserts. A stunning view across the sea and Anthony Quinn Bay, and a gorgeous observatory where you can pay a small fee to see the cosmos and explore the starry skies. They also have an extensive cocktails and alcoholic drinks with relaxed music, I bet this place is so special at night time. The owners are so kind and friendly, and I would highly recommend this place for couples, families and solo travellers. I promise you won't regret making the trip to visit this special secret spot. Really memorable. Thank you!

We had an amazing experience at the Astronomy cafe: a must visit! The location is incredible, at the top of a hill with an amazing view. It’s a nice walk from Faliraki center, or you can take a taxi and you will be there in 5 mins.

We booked the ‘night observation’ for just 8 euro’s per person at 21.30. Because of Covid the groups are small, which is very nice because it feels very personal and you will have a lot of time to look through the telescope. We saw amazing things, stars millions of light years away! During this observation Christina explained everything very well and enthousiastic.

After the observation we told them that we really wanted to see a/some planet(s). We had to wait until 23.00/00.00 before Saturn and maybe Jupiter would be visible. In the meantime we had a cocktail en enjoyed the nice terrace. At 23.00 the owner took us to the second telescope for a private observation. The highlight of the evening: we saw Jupiter and Saturn! So cool!

Really recommend going here when you visit Rhodos! Very cool experience, really friendly people and a beautiful location!

Wow what an experience!! The staff were welcoming, we came about 45 mins before our booking so ordered cocktails and walked around the grounds reading all the facts and looking at the visuals. The actual telescope viewing was incredible, very informative and just mind blowing. We saw some clusters, Saturn and Jupiter and I can’t believe it only cost €8 euros each! Just brilliant, if you are heading to Rhodes, definitely squeeze the Astronomy Cafe into your trip!

The cafe is walkable from Faliraki around 20 mins. The admission charge covered the mini session. I enjoyed the experience but was left hankering for more information. The session was 20 mins and to be honest you could talk for hours on astronomy and the influence of Greek astronomers. They could do more about horoscopes and the various constellations etc. Overall good visit.

Astrology cafe is an amazing family run business that offers amazing cocktails whilst learning something new. The actual astrology session is amazing as you learn things you may or may not know but get to look up into the galaxies and see stars you wouldn't get the opportunity to see usually.

Would definitely recommend this whilst in Falaraki as it's a beautiful evening spent.

We loved our time at the Astronomy Cafe. Despite the wind, we got to see an array of stars, consultations and even a nebula.
Cocktails are reasonably priced and are fantastic! Food is also available, although this isn’t something we ordered as we’d already eaten. You don’t need to buy tickets to the astronomy tower to visit, however it is 100% worth it for the experience. I would highly recommend getting a taxi to this location, as it’s very remote and up a steep hill.

A memorable and unique experience. There are a great range of drink with some great cocktails. Great if you're a space fan or not, my girlfriend was apprehensive but loved it! You get to look through the telescope 5/6 times and we got to clearly see Saturn and its rings. Highly recommend for a different holiday activity!

Visted the cafe with a large group and was made to feel unwelcome from when we arrived. Ordered food and drinks (pancakes not the best) waiters (male) very rude and asking the children to sit down when with adults looking at the exhibits. we were asked to sit altogether in one area but not enough room so had to use some other tables and chairs and you could tell they didn’t like this. Asked several times if we could buy tickets and was rudely told to wait until they were ready (no explanation on how or when to purchase tickets for the done). The male waiter continually hovering over us and making the whole group feel uncomfortable and on edge.

The owner then had the audacity to ask a member of the party to move off the chair as they was too big in front of the whole table of people ( bearing in mind this individual had sat there for an over an hour with nothing said) when I spoke to the owner and said how rude he was he got very aggressive went and spoke to another group of people in German about us. Another member of our party approached him and he screamed and pointed and shouted in her face causing a big scene. This Cause huge distress to 13 children as he was threatening them that their parents were going to prison whilst running around threatening to ring the police as he wouldn’t allow us to pay our bill and leave.

whilst he was shouting at other member of our group his staff 2 young ladies were very apologetic for our experience and their bosses behaviour and were embarrassed.

I Definitely avoid and wouldn’t recommend this establishment unless you are awilling for a torrent of abuse by a gruntled owner.

As appears you use the term "rude" in almost all reviews you have posted on tripadvisor in order to describe the places you have visited. I highly doubt that your accusations and criticism about the other businesses you have visited as well as mine are true. The image you convey about my business with your unnecessary comments is not only false but pure defamation, for which of course you are accountable. As can be seen on your profile, wherever you go you are unsatisfied and the only thing you do is to post negative reviews. It seems that your reviews are the mirror of your own inappropriate and obtrusive behavior, not respecting the terms of a private business while disturbing the other attending customers with your own inappropriate behavior at the places you visit. You must know that the Astronomy Cafe exists for a certain niveau of customers and is not a playground. During your visit your party let all children play and run around unattended, contrary to my employees' remarks. In fact, at some point they occupied all other available tables laying on the chairs and couches spreading all four limbs! If this behavior in your eyes is considered appropriate along with insisting on not paying the according bill for food and beverages for around 20 people, so help you God and a good lawyer at some point. I'm sure you will need one.
