This was a lovely traditional experience. The service was efficient and friendly. The greek music in the background was a nice touch to the evening and the food was great.

It is the perfect spot in Rhodes. One of the best restaurants in Rhodes. It is both good for the dinner (they have special bakeries for the lunch not available for dinner) and dinner. A must for Rhodes. They have both traditional dishes of Greece and traditional bakeries. All their food is very delicious and tasty although not expensive. We've... More

We started with the selection of small plates which were a while coming but worth the wait. Really tasty and varied. I had the bream which was cooked... More

There are many such cafes in Rhodos town, but few qualify to be called the best, this cafe is one of them. This is not a one time visit review, the consistency of quality food and drinks offered by them is amazing, at times the owners are also involved in serving you. The food is fresh, plenty and coffee is... More

Koykos cafe has the best view/garden in whole Rhodes town. What makes it the best restaurant, besides the beautiful view, garden, flowers, music, artsy and creative interior and exterior in classical hellenic style is also a super super tasty food and huge portions. This was the biggest and tastiest chicken gyros that I've ever eaten in my life, I think... More

Went here with a family member. We ordered grilled meat plate for two, pita bread, cucumber yoghurt and greek salad. First of all, the place was cosy and looked authentic. You could sit outside in the back yard or in the pedestrian street. The waiters were attentive to your needs and helpful. The food was fresh and the pita bread... More
