Fabulous dining experience in the leafy courtyard of Marco Polo. Possibly the best prawns I have ever had (they were cooked in Ouzo) and definitely the best Panna Cotta in the world. Fantastic cuisine and lovely service from the hosts. A gastronomic highlight of our trip to Rhodes.

This was the first restaurant we went in rhodes. The food was very good and tasty. The bad thing was the service wich was to much time. They did'n had write the order right and when we said to them they say just 'I am sorry'. It's shame!

Everythng was perfect. The waiter was charming and very knowledgable. The house wine was excellent and served at the right temperature. The mains and sweets were all very tasty. I did not have any of the starters but the other guests were raving about them.

We were really looking forward to our visit here as heard good things, and arrived in good spirits. Despite having booked ahead we were asked to wait downstairs as they hadn't prepared the table yet. Fair enough. We were shouted upstairs, and arrived to no one, and kind of wandered around to find the table ourselves until a waiter appeared and very brusquely sat us down. Things then started to go downhill from there really - very abrupt service, not a smile from anyone. We were even asked to change table at one point during our meal as a bigger group were arrived. Generally felt as if our good humour on arrival was being beaten into submission by a cafe that clearly thinks it is far better than it is. The one star is for a very nice starter. The mains however were bland. On leaving, my wife (who speaks Italian) even heard the waiter, who was Italian-Greek, insult us openly in Italian! It was at least a fitting end to an awful dining experience.

One of the best places ever been. First of all the owners were absolutely perfect. The menu xls. Even the way to the restaurant was fantastic. As you walk in the place you get impressed.
