Lovely location, nice and shaded. It was one of our first meals in Rhodes on this visit and having been at Lindos last year we knew the Greek food was normally exceptional. We ordered the chicken which was okay and fairly small portions. When the...greek salad arrived and the 3 rather insipid, lonely olives were sighted, I thought that was the decoration. Not to be, that was it! Total 3 olives in a greek salad. Priced as normal as other places. I know getting towards the end of the season but there are plenty of choices around to eat. Maybe best to try somewhere else.More

Visited this restaurant for the first time. We chose it because it was shaded from the sun and central to all the shops and cafes/restaurants around it. We decided to have Chefs salad and table water. Portions were smaller to what we have had elsewhere...and the price is quite expensive for what you got. Table water was just a bottle of water not two bottles.More

Stopped here with my wife, daughter and her very picky friend. Old Rhodes town has a lot of pushy grabbing restaurants and cafes where you are “encouraged” very enthusiastically to enter. Not here, a polite would you care to see the menu with nice seating...under a huge tree. Very cool spot with no horrid fan blowing in your face, great food, lamb kleftica was amazing, my wife had a gyro, simple and nice. Daughter went for soup and her mate had a slouvaki (chicken) which she ate without a fuss (unusual!) We will be back, nice spot, lovely people and great food.More

Nice and friendly staff. A cozy and nice environment around the resturant. My friend ate the moussaka and that was good. I ate the grilled chicken with potatoes. The chicken iself was very good and with a lot of taste to it. I did tho...miss some sauce or something to the meal. We payed a resonable price. All thogether I would recommend a stop here. Worth mentioning is that there are toilets at this resturant. BUT, you have to first go into the kitchen then use a narrow stair before you get to the toilet.More

This restaurant does not deserve to be called Greek traditional restaurant. In terms of the taste of food everything was alright (but no more than alright), but the portions were really small while the price rather high. Having visited a few places around Rhodes island...I thought I could expect much bigger portions for this price. The Greek salad consisted of 1/2 tomato, 1/2 cucumber and even less than 1/2 onion with the smallest piece of feta cheese I ever saw in Greek tavernas. Grilled vegetables is three slices of grilled eggplant and one grilled pepper (costs 6 euro). Chicken souvlaki for kids is a small portions of chicken with even smaller portion of French fries. There’s no pita bread. The highlight of the evening was mousaka- there was nothing wrong with it. The staff was too busy to be friendly with us. I would say this place is more about making money and less about making customers happy. In Lindos, for example, you can go pretty much everywhere and get a stunning view, tasty food and bigger portions for the very same price, although the city itself is also a tourist attraction just as Rhodes old town.More
