We had a very nice meal here and enjoyed our evening, the food and the lovely courtyard atmosphere. But could have done without the silly game at the start:

'Do you have a reservation?'
'No'
'Oh I must check'
. . . . . . . . . . .
'Well it's very tricky but we can just manage to squeeze you in'

All this when there's empty tables that stay empty all evening.

Pelease!

Apart from this nonsense it was well worth the visit and, for this standard, very well priced.

I recommend this restaurant and I'm am so happy we made the effort to find it (we took a few wrong turns on the way). On Week ends you need to book an table. Outdoor dining.

Marco Polo is unbeatable for a delicious, reasonably priced high-quality produce dinner in Rhodes. It is a little way off of the beaten track (but easy to find with directions) and thankfully well away from the natural habitat of cruise-ship dwellers.

We despise plastic menus with pictorial previews of the meals and are frustrated by waiters calling you into their stores. Marco Polo boasts a limited menu featuring Mediterranean (Italian and Greek influence) dishes made from local, fresh produce. The service is delightful consisting of a vivacious maitre-d and hip, young waiters.

We enjoyed our experience so much so we returned twice to eat there. All of the dishes appear to be tasty, however we did favor the green pomegranate salad, the lamb with risotto and the beef.

You will not regret the decision to done here and will likely return!

We were recommend this restaurant and am so pleased we made the effort to find it (we took a few wrong turns on the way). This is home-cooked good with passion! Without a doubt our favorite meal - we tried a few other places but they all felt very 'touristy' by comparison. Our only disappointment was that we didn't have another night to go back. Effie is an absolute delight ... make the effort and enjoy the whole experience.
P.S.Book before you go.

I was tipped off to this lovely restaurant by the lonely planet, probably wouldn't have found it otherwise as its tucked away in a side street.
Was not disappointed! One of my more memorable meals during the month I travelled through Greece. The restaurant is located in a beautiful hidden garden, the food was creative and fresh, the service friendly and helpful.
