If your looking for a restaurant to visit in the Old Town, you have to go to Mama Sophia, the food is amazing and the staff are so welcoming. Myself and my boyfriend visited this restaurant back in October. Firstly, when we were looking for a restaurant to book, a lot of the other places were very pushy, shoving leaflets in your hand. However, when we arrived at Mama Sophia's we were left to look at the menu on display, only then were we approached by the main guy (cant remember his name, maybe Stavros?) to talk us through the menu. Once he was done he just said if we fancy coming we can just ask for him personally and he will get us in. So we went the following night and were greeted by lovely staff and a welcoming glass of wine on the house. We felt like part of the family. The food was amazing, I would advise anyone to go for the stuffed squid main as it is honestly the best dish I have tasted. There is plenty of choice on the menu and we were given a range of puddings at the end of our meal for free as well. It is not pricey either, especially for the quality and amount of food you get its defiantly good pricing. I would 100% go back if I return to Rhodes again!

“Mama Sofia!”
Reviewed January 15, 2014

The welcoming and sincere smile on Stavros's face was promising a superb dine and wine, which we could not resist anymore after getting exhausted walking around the old town. The traditional Greek ambience of Mama Sofia in the medieval town-centre captured us as well as the smell of finely-cooked seafood dishes which are the best on the island for the epicures. We could not decide which one overweighs: the relish of fine food or the warm hospitality. Once you experience it, you will always feel like you are a member of the family. Thank you Stavros and all the other nice staff. We hope to see you again! Love from Turkey!

“it´s been just great!”
Reviewed December 26, 2013

Even though this restaurant is located in a very touristic place and initially we were pretty sceptic about it, we decided to try it and were FLASHED by its delicious, high quality dishes, friendly, warm atmosphere and great service. I would definitely recommend this place to visitors of Rhodos-City

“very-very good”
Reviewed November 17, 2013

we've been to rhodes island end august. we stayed in kolymbia, but we went to rodos-city 3 times. and all our trips to rodos we went ot eat in mama sofia. actually, before we went on holiday, i've read a lot about rhodos and about it's restaurants. i've read messages here, on tripadvisor.com and i noticed to visit this restaurant. and so we did. it wasn't a mistake! the master and his brother have been really hospitable and nice. the waiters were also hospitable and helpful. if you come to this restaurant, you'll get a glass of wonderful housewine. and the dessert as a compliment. the meals are big and tasty, my husband ate cleftico and it was marvellous. so does the goat. it melts in your mouth. i ate seafood. it was very good, too. except the octopus (a bit burnt).
we visited other restaurants in kolymbia. but this one was the best!!! i would like to come back and to eat there again few more times!
