“Eat Here and You Won't Go Anywhere Else”
Reviewed May 12, 2013

The food, the staff and the decor were all amazing. Take a look through the whole place. There are even rooms for rent on the second floor.

It is no accident this place is amazing. I saw the owner (Billie) there to help with breakfast and sometimes as late as 3am. I was told he has had this restaurant for a long time.

My friend and I rented a couple rooms here for the last three days of our trip. The quality of the rooms were just as good as the restaurant. This is a don't miss.

“So good I went every single day I was in Rhodes.”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

This is a deceptively huge, very reasonably priced cafe in the heart of Rhodes Town. The range of food isn't extensive, but what they do serve is perfect; very reasonably priced pies, salads, drinks, mezes, and puddings. The cafe is decorated quite traditionally, yet has a lot of cool items around, such as traditional instruments, some retro music equipment, and even a Harley Davidson. The cafe also has outdoor and semi outdoor seating, so there's something to suit everyone. There's really very little I can fault Koykos for, maybe a larger menu range would be nice, but if that would affect the current quality of food it's not worth changing at all. I'd highly recommend this place for breakfast, dinner or lunch, and most of all the desserts. Galaktoboureko and baklava are amazing, as was the wine. The staff can vary a little, but only in that some are more chatty than others, all staff were very friendly and helpful. Don't leave Rhodes without a visit to Koykos. :)

“Slightly Different”
Reviewed May 9, 2013

We were walking by and saw this bar/restaurant and stopped for a beer, the staff were very nice. Its got a lot of quirky features like the motor cycle in the bar and the cookoo clocks,not to mention the parrot that sits in the centre area. While we were in we asked about the food ,the staff insisted we inspect the kitchen and see the food on offer. We went for a meal that night it was great, so good we went back another night.

The meals cost around 14 euros per head for salad and some meze dishes we also included a half carafe of wine and two beers. Service was very good.there are around 5 different eating areas both inside and out.
