“Worth hunting for”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Where just on a day visit from Marmaris and wanted somewhere off the main tourist track. Havinf read the reviews on trip advisor we knew roughly where to look and were not disapointed. The garden venue, food and service at lunchtime were excellent would have loved to have gone back for an evening meal but no time.

“flatters to - - -”
Reviewed September 19, 2012

The premises themselves are very attractive,despite the outrageous Colossus statue,and the initial welcome was fine.
Once we had ordered our meal,however, (and ignored the hard sell on the fish - pretty expensive if the bill other diners had was anything to go by),service fell away dramatically,as newer clients were targetted.
The food was OK,and (fish aside) not overpriced,but with hundreds of restaurants in Rhodes,I'd avoid this one on service grounds alone.

“Lovely garden setting in old town”
Reviewed July 16, 2012

We enjoyed our meal here last year and intend to go again when we return in September. A lovely garden setting in the old town. Pretty commercial as you would expect in this "touristy" location. We found everything very clean and service friendly and efficient. They asked us, very politely, to move to another table whilst we were having our coffee so that they could fit in a big table. Very popular, with Greeks as well as tourists.

“Not very good meal for rhodes town. Waiters didnt seem to care.”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Restaurant looked good so thought we would try. Meal was poor, toilets were dirty and all the waiters seem like they were terrified of the obvious owner dressed in his scruffy jeans at a table nearby. I get the impression that whilst most couples will be on holiday that they dont have to sell a good meal because the next flight is full of fresh prey. Shame because rhodes town has so many hard working restaurants trying to do the opposite.

“Poor meal & attitude of staff diabolical”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

We went here as a party of 4 adults and a 4 year old. We'd walked past this restaurant a few times and it looked lovely from the street, so we decided to have a meal here towards the end of our holiday. The setting of the restaurant was pretty - water feature was lovely but really that's where the postives stop.
The waiter who took our food order was very impatient - tapping his order pad against his leg and then breaking into a conversation with someone else in Greek whilst we were trying to order our meals. We waited quite a while for our starters which was ok - but waited even longer for our mains. The food was at best mediocre - we had a range of fish & meat between us. The meat was bland and quite dry, and the "fresh" fish was poor for the price we paid (over €30!). We asked for a bottle of 'house' rose wine, which again cost over €30 and wasn't of a good quality.
We asked for the bill as soon as we'd finished our main courses (about 2 hours after ordering) which came to a total of €140 - by far the most expensive meal we'd had.
I then took my daughter to the toilet whilst the other members of the party went out to the street to wait for us. When we came out of the toilet, I was appauled to see the waiters standing around our table, gesturing to where we had sat and laughing, and the owner slapping each of them on the backs, obviously laughing at the fact that they'd got a lot of money out of our party from food that wasn't fresh and very overpriced. When they realised that we hadn't left and had come out of the toilet, they suddenly became very sombre and quickly cleared the table and left to go inside. I was shocked to see such a terrible attitude from the staff - and am only writing this review to WARN people to be very careful when considering to eat here. I usually only write reviews that are positive, but felt very strongly that a review was necessary after our experience. This place could be so lovely with the right attitude and better quality food.
