Nice location it is all there is However the food is ok, there are better restaurants in the area. The service is almost non exsistent and can leave you wating for a very long time. This feeling was given after dining 3 times and got...worse every time we went back.More

Excellent local food gem, hidden in the narrow streets of a small village. Grilled feta, cheese croquettes and moussaka were exquisit.

We loved this tavern. We were staying at the Atrium Prestige hotel which had very high restaurant prices so we were happy to find this little gem in a nearby village. The owner saw us struggling to park our car and ran out and moved...his own car to give us his spot. We ate a huge meal for the four of us and was less than $80 including alcohol. We will be going back.More

A typical Greek Taverna off the beaten track but clearly very popular . This family run business goes back generations and the care and attention shines through . Reminiscent of my early visits to Greece in the 80s this taverna has traditional homemade food and...in plentiful supply . The two brothers who currently front the place are very friendly . We arrived early evening but from the place settings it’s obvious that this is a very popular place . Try it - you will not be disappointedMore

Typical Greek ambience. The right place to rest, with natural shade. A place where you can see typical Greek village architecture and experience Rhodes in the right way. Great food, graet service!

We enjoyed a very nice meal here in such a pretty setting and with good service. On the night we went there was also a guitarist playing live. Very family friendly and popular so book if you can.

We were on our way from Lindos to Prasonisi. It was the best choice to leave the main road and go to Lachania to Platoons. We ordered some starters, main courses and drinks. Tzatziki and hummus were delicious. I do recommend also bread. The fish...(dorada) was extremely fresh and tasty. I ordered fried squid which was also outstanding. Children had meatballs and just polished the plates. Wine, Greek coffee, what else?More

This was in fact an average restaurant, the atmosphere the tree in the middle of the restaurant was nice, but the food was not exceptional nor the service. Not very expensive place

As I'm sitting here at this family run taverna, in the shade of it's amazing grapevine covered patio, contemplating life, and devouring the wonderfully lucious eggplant Casserole (€7.00), green salade(€3.50) and bottle of the house wine (€4.80 which is the best I've had thus far,...and i cant believe it's from a bottle too😉), and vanilla ice cream, which actually pairs well with the wine..lol. I'm just thinkng how fortunate I am that my host recommended the drive out here from Rhodes... Best day trip ever!! It won't disappointt!! Just do it!! Life never tasted so good😊 Now I need a nap😇More

Good food and service. Everything was perfect. The Taverna is located in small village, about 5 km from the main road. But it is worth to visit it.

This is an amazing location that reminds how the Greek villages were in the 70s and 80s. The beautiful little square of the village is the dining area of this traditional Greek taverna. The food is home made and the place is family operated. Every...single dish is absolutely delicious. Salads are freshly prepared from local vegetables. The meat is also supplied from local farmers. Service is polite and friendly. Dining there is just an unforgettable experience. The atmosphere is very warm and relaxing. I have visited this place a few times and always the food is great. Highly recommend especially if you're looking for a romantic dinner at an unforgettable location.More
