Great, traditional Greek cuisine!

We were shown into the kitchen, to see what had been prepared that night.

Unusual in that you choose your food from what has been cooked and is on display at the front of the kitchen. Food is described to you and you make your choice. The food was excellent and vary reasonably priced. The restaurant is small and probably wouldn't recommend for dinner but perfect for a good lunch if touring the Old... More

This is a great 'find' just off the main streets of Rhodes Town. It opened at 1pm for lunch and we were taken into the kitchen to choose from a great selection of freshly cooked typical Greek food. It was tasty and a great price!

Small place with 10 tables on side street under an awning. You are taken to the kitchen and shown the days menu. Multiple items to choose but mainly good greek comfort food. We had the stuffed tomatoes and peppers which were served with potatoes. Also, the gevegia which is long grain rice with peppers, tomatoes, onions and delicious cinnamon pork.... More

This place is not fancy but if your looking for true homemade quality food come here! They bring you into the kitchen to select your hot dish and make fresh Greek salads for 4 euros. We had stuffed tomato and peppers with potatoes. All was excellent. Served with water and fresh bread. Highly recommend!!

With dishes that change almost every day, you can be sure you will experience real Greek food and not the garbage of "mousaka-tzatziki-souvlaki" that is served at the very touristic traps. Very cheap (around 15€ for two people) and really delicious, I felt like I was eating at my mother's house!

We got a recommendation for this lovely restaurant from a local, who said she eats there almost every day. The food is home-made, traditional, and tasty :-) Don't expect anything fancy but rather a home, family kitchen, and you'll get a real authentic experience.

We went there yesterday, with high hopes (after it being recommended to us by our hotel host, and after reading the great reviews), but we were dissapointed. The chicken (in wine) was dry and tough, the pork (in beer) way too salty and everything together was way too oily. And next to it the service was polite, but nothing big... More

Boukia-Boukia, which means "bite bite" in Greek, reminds me of the best of my grandmas cooking. Recommended to me by a local. Great little gem in old town, where the wife & mother in law cook a fresh menu daily. Extremely authentic, delicious with a warm atmosphere for very reasonable prices. Only negative is that I found it the night... More

Really loved the food at Boukia and felt compelled to write a review for this family run establishment. Particularly loved the Dolmades, the chicken & ham roll, and the stuffed zucchini flowers. Such a treat and can't wait to go back this week!
