Local cuisine with everything to offer - a family restaurant serving home cooked local dishes, but with surprising elegance and balance, attention to fine detail, thoughtful use of spices and restraint in regards to oil (that is sometimes overused in local cooking). The tzatziki, moussakas and souvlaki that we had were delicious and perhaps the best we have tried on he island. Located in the mountain village of Monolithos, providing a wonderful serene small village atmosphere in a cool and quiet area, just minutes drive from the castle.

We discovered this place driving round Monolithos. It is on the side of the square below the Church. The road is narrow to get there but worth the trouble. The owner is very welcoming and the food excellent and good value. Would definitely go back if in the area again.

Outstanding moussaka and beet salad. Delicious tea using herbs from their garden with local honey. Is one reason we loved our Rhodes holiday.

As we'd arrived rather late and were pretty tired out, we had some salads and vegetables from the Old Monolithos taverna on our first night in the village, which were kindly picked up by Giorgos, the hotel manager, and brought to us for consumption at the hotel... the kind of thing that seems only possible in Greece! The food was fresh and very tasty - and we enjoyed it all!

This is the best restaurant in Rhodes! Shane and I have been here for lunch twice, and both times the food was amazing. On our first visit the owner made us a variety of foods to sample. Everything was delicious. Upon leaving that day we mentioned that we had yet to try truly traditional moussaka on the island. He told us he would make it special just for us, all we had to do was give notice. It was definitely worth the trip because it was delicious, and the best moussaka we have ever had! This restaurant is far more than just delicious food though. The atmosphere is welcoming, and the owner and his wife are wonderful people. We sat and talked with them for several hours. It is a great experience all the way around.
