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. Food and drinks can be served all day.

“Amazing place!!!”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

Our last meal in Rodos was in Koykos Cafe:

- amazing service (the waiter was so so nice and polite!)
- amazing price (4 drinks, to starters and 2 dishes, 2 desserts and 2 cofees about 30 euros!)
- and the best: the place!!! Perfectly decorated and located in the center of Rodos.

Totally recommended! :)

“Nice place!”
Reviewed August 3, 2014 via mobile

It is a great a place, with all kind of people. The food and the house wine was ok but I think it is better to visit it in winter.

“Fairly nice”
Reviewed July 28, 2014

Always seemed packed so we decided to go see why. It wasn't as expensive as I thought looking at the menu. But then we realized after the food came that if you ordered something like lamb chops, you got nothing but lamb chops. If you wanted a side dish (potatoes, rice etc) you had to know to order them separately. Otherwise a nice place with a free wifi that didn't require a password.
We got seated in the worst spot of the restaurant. Waiters kept running past our table so fast the table shook every time.

“Dinner on last night of stay”
Reviewed July 25, 2014 via mobile

Had a really great time in this restaurant with wife and son (5 years) that locals also visit
frequently. Excellent mezes companied with local pasta, beef and lamb.

Highly recommend this place - it was by far the best we could find in one week. Staff friendly and arranged for a table from roof without reservation.

In busy times I'd recommend a reservation.
