“When in Rhodes don't miss Kostas”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2012

The best traditional Greek cuisine in the island. A simple delicious family run taverna driven by love. Love for food and for people. The father and the two twin sons, kind and shy, welcome guests warmly, and make them feel at home from the first step into the restaurant. Everything is cooked at the moment by the father with the best ingriedients and his special touch. As a result even tzatziki is different from any other place. The squid filled with feta and tomato and the fried shrimps from Symi are two of the most delicious dishes in the menu. Nice Greek music makes the atmosphere pleasant and relaxing. I wish I could find Kostas taverna at home as well and not only in Rhodes.

“Wonderful greek restaurant!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2012

This is a place that should not be missed if you look for genuin greek food. At the entrance it might look rather dark and dull, but climb the stairs and sit at the nice (partly) indoor veranda. The moussaka, dolmades, fried cheese (saganaki) and grilled swordfish - have them all. Friendlier and more charming owners I doubt you'll find! We already long back...

It was all delicious and the staff was very nice. I found very nice vegetarian plates and my companion eat a wonderful fish. They were also very kind with my baby boy

“Off the touristy places”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 16, 2012

We chose this place from tripadvisior reviews. More or less people find this place from recommendations because it's away from tourist places.
We ate dolamdes, Saganaki( oven baked feta cheese with onions, tomatoes and green pepper) and eggplant with garlic. Food was simple but very tasty.
Totally recommend this place!

“A comfortable Greek Taverna”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 24, 2012 via mobile

We chose Kostas based on the reviews below.

This place is off the main tourist street and is very unassuming. The staff were friendly and food good, typical Greek. The servings were generous and in the end we over ordered.

The best dish was the "big beans". These large, white beans cooked in a tomatoe based sauce where excellent and went well with the pork dish. We would also recommend the house red as an easy drinking wine.

The only thing that confuses me is why do so many Greek restaurants serve meals with English style potatoe chips? I'm all for innovation but really, is this the best they can do?
