Excellent quality!

At the Socratous Garden the food has excellent quality, the staff are fun to talk to and suggested by the name it is in a garden with cats roaming around.

Fantastic outdoor bar hidden behind a busy street in the Old Town. Lovely setting surrounded by exotic trees, shrubs, and plants. On a hot day you can find some welcome shade to enjoy a few glasses of wine or a few ice cold beers. Reasonably priced and free wifi, recommended.

A group of us found this place whilst on a day from the cruise ship. We were just wandering the streets of Rhodes old town and decided to have coffee. This place is lovely with water fall, trees baring various fruit and some in full bloom. Go early as I noted it was getting busy when we left. Rhodes old... More

We stopped in a couple times for drinks and ate once. You'd barely notice it if you weren't looking. Inside it is a massive garden with water features, fruit trees, and birds. Plenty of places to sit in sun or shade. Relaxing, friendly, cheapest drinks we found in old town- €6! The food was excellent- Italian and Greek. Pastas, lasagnas,... More

We went there again, for some relaxing moments in the busy Old Town of Rhodes! Only for a drink and some quiet moments. The service was brilliant, the waiter delivert some extra chips when he realized that we didn't want to eat ! very good service indeed!!! And that is why we always want to go there!

There are countless tavernas in Rhodes Town. This place is fairly well hidden off the main Street but what an Oasis! Quiet, restful set amongst trees and the coffee, drinks and food is wonderful. The staff are always pleasant and ready for a chat. To get awayfrom the shopping, the perfect place.

On a lovely day in Rhodes whilst you are exploring the lovely Old Town this little oasis set amongst the busy shopping street is just lovely. We enjoyed some glasses of cold white wine and a light lunch and it was lovely. The staff were friendly and chatty, the gardens were pretty, cool and relaxed and we enjoyed it so... More

When he tryed to fly, he got hit in the ground because of the leach. We dont want to support any place that thinks this is... More

As the headline states, they keep a parrot (large bird) chained on a pole i the garden. The poor bird is soon to lose his other leg. Stressed and restless. Do not support this place in its animal abuse! By the way: before we did see the parrot, we had lunsj at the restaurant. Now, three days later Im still... More
