Visited this restaurant on recommendation from Manuel (Todo Bien) and did not disappoint. This restaurant was by far the best restaurant we ate at all holiday, hands down. Stavros and his staff were all very friendly, funny and helpful. If your hungry the portion sizes are good. I ordered Swordfish which was delicious. We had 2 starters and 2 mains with a drink each and was expecting a hefty bill but that was not the case - very reasonably priced for quality food and drink. 5 stars!!!

This restaurant has had great reviews and therefore we wanted to visit the place during our stay in Rhodes town. This restaurant is located in the old town and it is surrounded by shops and numerous other restaurants.

Even though the restaurant is apparently very popular, there was a man outside it pleading us to come in. When we sat in the table, one of the owners came chatting with us telling how special his place is and how wonderful his wine selection is.

We ordered food and it was apparently ok, because I don't remember anything negative about it. On the other hand I don't recall what me or my girlfriend ate, even though it is just two weeks when we visited Mama Sofia. I do remember every other dinner we had:)

The owners Stavros and Jannis (if I remember the names correctly) are most likely the biggest reason for the great reviews. They did a pretty good job trying to be funny, but it must be boring to say the same things over and over, day in day out. Still they were friendly and tried to make everyone feel special.

When we passed the restaurant many times during the evening there was an extremely awful band playing music for the reastaurant guests. Luckily they didn't perform during our dinner.

To summarize: Nice and friendly staff, apparently good food but nothing special to our liking.

Great food! Great service! Great location! Recommend the seafood platter with a glass of Athiri wine. Enjoy the food next to the clock tower!

I am writing this whilst still sat at Mama Sofia's after a wonderful lunch whilst visiting for the day on a cruise. Lovely Greek food and friendly service. We had Greek Salad and Moussaka which were delicious with tasty fresh ingredients. Welcomed by the owner Stavros who was happy for us to try Greek wines and if we didn't like them he would finish himself! Highly recommended.

We spent a week in Marmaris and decided to take a day trip to Rhodes. It was the best day of our trip and mostly because of Mama Sofia's. Restaurant owner Souvras welcomed us in and made us feel like we were really a part of his family! The food was great and very tasty! Would definately recommend this restaurant to everyone visiting Rhodes.
