Description: "Here you can smell Greece" In the center of the town, at the bustling pedestrian 'Nikiforos Mandilara', you can find the traditional rooms of KOUKOS. A traditional listed building since 1930 combines perfectly accommodation and restaurant services. KOUKOS has traditional suites fully equipped with fireplace for the winter season, TV, A/C, free internet and room service. Bed in sofa, handmade carpets and decoration in collectives and antiques. Inner place with classic characteristics of ald architecture will travel you in the old Rhodian era. If you wish to feel the magic of old Rhodes, KOUKOS is the ideal place. Leaving the block of rooms you will find the restaurant. Traditional wood oven burns since early morning in order to prepare your breakfast. Hot bread, pies and sweets baked in wood oven hand made by us with selective local products. Kitchen delivers traditional Rhodian recipes for meze and baked food, but also meat and fish in charcoals. Varieties of salad and appetizers. Traditional koulouria (fresh local pasta) all made with care and tradition.

“Tasty experience”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We had a very tasty authentic gastronomic experience! Not easy to find a real Greek restaurant/taverna in a very crowded and touristic place like Rhodes which serves only Greek food (no Wiener schnitzel, spaghetti bolognese and so on)! I recommend, among other delicious mezzes, dakos and saganaki (fried - Greek! - cheese). Service was very kind, may be a little slow. The place is cosy. The cost is definitely affordable: 15 euro each for 5 mezzes ( generous portions) we shared, beers and mineral water. Good price for the quality!

“What a disappointment”
Reviewed August 1, 2013

Our travel guide ( a young girl) recommended this taverna for us. It was a disappointment. The service was poor and the food was...the worst during our two week visit in town. The price level is absolutely too high compared with the food quality.

“Lovely,clean, stylish Greek restaurant”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

The building is decorated in a local syle, eating and drinking in such an atmosphere was really nice and I will definitely want to visit that restaurant when I go to Rhodes again. Young, smily staff helps you to choose what to offer and serves very professionally. The mezes and sandwiches are tasty.I recommend "6 plates mezes" or "10 plates mezes" and taste most of the traditional Greek mezes this way. We liked what we offered and understood why local people choose this place too. I think the prices are good for such a touristic and all the time busy restaurant. Do not miss it, try it. You won't regret.
