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. KOUKOS bar is where you can taste Greek coffee in ember (Hovoli), Traditional Souma spirit and local wines. The place includes library for relaxation and also conference room with TV and projector.

“Difficult...”
Reviewed September 2, 2013

We went twice on our last holiday. If we'd reviewed after the first visit we would have rated it a 5 - the service was good, the table on the upstairs terraces was really nice and the food excellent. We had the mezzo which was excellently explained.
On our second visit there was a mix up with the table which was sorted out, but the service wasn't as good, the wait was much longer, and the food just wasn't quite as good either - 3 would be more than fair, hence our overall 4. My feeling is that if we returned again the 4 would still be fair.

Reviewed August 29, 2013 via mobile

In the centre of Rhodos town, but in a quiet and pleasant veranda. Try the local wine, exceptional!Also mpekris mezes is fabulous.. They also offer a small dessert at the end of the meal.

“Perfect meze in rhodes town”
Reviewed August 19, 2013

Me and my friends visited koukos twice during our five day visit of Rhodos. Both times the food was excellent, the atmosphere really authentic, although the service could get faster. I really enjoyed drinking spirit tsipouro with the tapas, good suggestion from the waitor. Menu tip: the cheese paste with the delicious oven baked pitta bread. Btw, excellent prices fos such a central place

“So good”
Reviewed August 13, 2013

Meze in a local house style with nice food and very good service. Try the fava plate and the lamb. Cooked in the traditional Rhodian way . Try going there as a breakfast alternative, and do order Greek coffee is is a ritual you don't want to miss.
