Though there was a little silliness in the beginning ("Do you have a reservation?" in a restaurant that was close to empty when we arrived), this was and will probably be the best restaurant experience we got on the island of Rhodes.
We skipped the starters and went straight for the mains. It looked so good that we forgot to take pictures. My girlfriend had one of the meals of the day (of which there were 5 i think) which was a slow cooked lamb shank with tomato, aubergine and potato. Which can be described in what she said after having two bites: "I wish I could cook this". I had the lamb souvlaki with pistachio and mustard, which was cooked to perfection and I could only agree with the wish of knowing the recipe. With this we had the house red wine that I don't remember much about, but fit the meal very well.
For dessert we had one of the desserts of the day, of which there were 10...! They apparently have an Italian woman making desserts, and she is quite creative.
We had Leche in piedi with caramelized figs. It was to say it simply: really good.
After the meal we were offered some homemade liquor. They had 3 types: Lemon, mandarin and myrtle berry. We tried the lemon and the mandarin. The mandarin wasn't that good, but the lemon was divine. Much, much better than limonchello. So good in fact that we inquired to what it was called and how it was made. The waiter told us the recipe and offered another round.
The atmosphere isn't what i would call relaxed Greek. But that might be because there were a lot of Italians there while we were there. It reminded me more of Italy than anything else, a little bit stressed, but everyone there were happy and seemed to enjoy themselves.
We were in the garden in the back which other than being a little bit windy was very nice.
(Don't try to pet the grey cat if it's there, it's fierce.)
We're not sure, but we might have gotten the wrong bill. 2 mains, 1 dessert, 2 bottles of sparkling water and 1/4 liter of wine came to little just over 40 euros for us.
