Now this is a restaurant! From the gregarious owner and staff, to the homemade bread, to the homemade desserts, to the perfectly-cooked seafood, to the romantic old-town setting, it just couldn't have been better. If you're visiting Rhodes, this place is a must.

Nireas is located in a garden setting in a beautiful courtyard away from the pedestrian traffic in the Old Town. It is a fish restaurant. You pick you fish from the catch of the day. Grilled to perfection. We had the Sea Bream which was terrific. Lots of excellent wine choices. Owner, Theodor, gets to every table to welcome the... More

Excellent restaurant with the owner Mr Theodoros Tsikis always there, always taking care of every customer's wishes! The fish is the freshest and cooked to perfection and everything we tasted was wonderful. His wife makes the specialities and they are the real home taste! We went back there every night, you can not get better food than that in Rhodes... More

As others have said, this restaurant has an extremely pretty courtyard setting, adorned with vines and beautiful lights. The menu is a simple one of seafood, vegetables and salads. The staff are friendly and helpful, but there just aren't enough of them - hence service is slow and poor. The food, while very tasty, is vastly over-priced. I was told... More

We went to this restaurant first in 2014, the owner Theodore is always very happy to see us ( I hope .o) ), Ok, we have been there min. 8 times. The food is very very good. The fried rock shrimps is fantastic. The sauce for the eggplants is super (it is his father's recipe). The shrimp saganaki, the mussel... More

We go to Nireas about 1-2 times a year and truly enjoy the location and the nice food. Nice terrasse in a quiet area of the old town, under grapewines, always busy but they always find you a table. Special about this place is the small menu (compared to all the touristy places) mainly focusing on seafood. Some specials like... More

If you want to good fish restaurant in a quiet place, go here. It is in a small place without all the people of the lower side of the Old town. You can eat very fresh and tasty fish grilled before your eyes.

Description
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)!
