“Best traditional taverna in Rhodes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2013

We come to Rhodes every year , and every year we impatiently wait for dinner in Kostas taverna . Nobody insist You should come inside ( as in other tavernas) , food is prepared and served by grandpa Kostas himself and its simply is excellent ...His tzatziki , SAGANAKI , Imam are best in town ....Keep strong , Kostas - next year we will come for dinner again :-)

“Very traditional”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Very authentic type traditional taverna.

Atmospheric & very cheap.

Worth a look, but not going to set world on fire.

Very nice people who run it

“Excellent dinner at affordable prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

We had the sovlaki feta and the dolmades as starters. They were very good. Then mussels and chicken skewers as the main course. Delicious. I'm regretting not trying the Greek yoghurt with honey for dessert. The service was good and probably what can be described as Greek in the meaning relaxed. The atmosphere is nice with no matching cutlery and weird little details like a rubber ducky in a cabinet. The owner - and cook - is a nice old man with a grandfather vibe that mixed up languages and just wants to please everyone.

“Limited choice and hard to find”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 27, 2013

In the dark this taverna would be very difficult to find, as we wondered where it was in the day light. The cafe owners on the same street assisted us and told us to continue walking. When where we least expected it, there it was. We had a look inside, looked a little dark and dingy in the dark. The menu wasn't appealing and my husband didn't like the look of anything on offer. We decided to avoid this Taverna too..

“Awesome and worth spending the time to find it!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2013

This taverna is down a little alley off one of the main squares in Old Rhodes Town and we actually were about to give up and go somewhere else when one of the other taverna owners down the same street gave us (reluctantly) directions. My advice is "keep going - you're nearly there!"

Food and service was great. I had fish and my girlfriend had Octopus (which I was dubious about but was awesome). The Vilamare (sp) wine was a find .. we purchased some to bring home.
