The restaurant is located in the old town. The waiters are quite funny and the food is very good. The tables are quite close to each other so not good if you are looking for privacy.

We had some delicious seafood at this restaurant. There is a bar next-door that makes some fantastic cocktails as well.

My partner and I went here for dinner on our first full day in Rhodes. The staff was really friendly and welcoming. We both had garlic bread to start and the chicken souvlaki for our main.

I could not believe that the whole family has been running the place for over 30 years! You can feel their personal touch and care everywhere. I had a wonderful seafood salad. This lunch was like a cherry on top that day!
