This restaurant serves delicious seafood and Greek food in a hospitable manner. We had a Greek salad, moussaka, and large cod. Their moussaka is probably the best in Rhodes. Dessert was also fulfilling.

A friend and myself had been recommended a restaurant but after asking a local shop owner he told us it had closed down. He recommended Mama Sofia's and what a great recommendation.

My friends and I spend a week on Rhodos and visited a few taverns... As a sea food lover, I can tell that this is the best restaurant in old Town for tasting all of the good this sea has to offer... And the owner is a lovely person !!! I strongly recommend it!

We can only reiterate the majority of other reviews. For a change we hadn't checked out the restaurant on tripadvisor beforehand, but stumbled upon it and were pulled in by Stefan the owner. It is in a lovely spot, with the clock tower opposite and a couple of tv bars close by - add to the early evening atmosphere! The... More

Good restaurant in old town tourist area. Service was personal, the owner came to talk us through menu and was very attentive. The blue cheese & bacon Mushroom starter and Kleftiko lamb main were the best dishes we ordered. Food is a bit pricy is my only negative.

Thank rogeuk
