Excellent caper salad, fried vegetables, Greek salad. This is a genuine Greek restaurant in a calm and nice square, away from the crowd.

We came here for dessert after reading that they served delicious baklava and we weren't disappointed. We ordered it with ice cream and it was definitely one of the best desserts I've had.

Combine one or two seafood platters per person with a shared salad and share your meal as if you're eating tapas! I liked our shrimp saganaki so much we came back the next day to have more. Do try the crab cakes or any of the shrimp plates, and have a aragula salad with pomegranate. Just thinking about it makes... More

Shaded cool patio with an excellent seafood lunch. The grilled octopus was tender and delicious, the local Symi shrimp unique and exquisite (eat the whole shrimp!), local Rhodes white wine was crisp and dry and the Greek salad was so fresh that we almost filled up with that. Do not miss.

Not the cheapest restaurant around the old town but the food was fresh and tasty and the portions a decent size. The olive oil was the best I have ever tasted and the staff are all so friendly. Well worth a visit.

If you are going to dine in Rhodes Town, this place is a must. We have been eating here for our last four holiday visits and believe me, the food is to die for ! Theo and Constance are both charming and make every dining experience a pleasure, serving the freshest fish, seafood and yummy deserts. Can't wait to return... More

We dined at this restaurant twice, first for a conference dinner. We liked it so much, we returned a few days later. Situated in the old town, the restaurant setting is so romantic, the service is excellent, and the food (especially the fish) is delicious. We also had the best home- made cheese pies (memorable).

Thank Barbara R

Beautiful alfresco setting. Tucked away in a quiet square off the beaten track. Dine on fresh seafood and fresh vegetables (many of them organic) under a pergola overflowing with jasmine,honeysuckle, Bougainville and a 25 year old grapevine. The Tsikis Family is always happy to meet new guest and welcome back many return customers ( some that have been coming since the opening in 1989)!
