The food and wine was delicious, the atmosphere and location unbeatable. The restaurant is family-run and the waiter´s are so funny. They make a show and want all guests to laugh. We loved eating there and if we ever come back to Rhodes, we´ll be back :-)) Thank you for the experience:-))

I have nothing bad to say about this place. Service is everything, and at Mama Sofia they certainly understand that. Rarely have we been treated so well in a restaurant. The staff were friendly, happy and helpful, being very nice to us and seeing that we had a perfect romantic dinner! The food was great as well!

Of everywhere I've been in the world mama Sofia's was hands down the best meal/service I have ever had! 2 of us shared the HUGE seafood platter wish fresh lobster, oysters, crab, fish, Calamari, mussels and so much more! Everything was so fresh and made with such care. The service was impeccable with the staff always topping up drinks and willing to help with the menu etc. you should definitely book if possible as by 8pm they were packed out with people queuing to get in. It's in a lovely setting and overall we had a wonderful family meal that we won't forget for a long time!

The service is friendly and the food was great! The cheese sagaki (fried cheese, $5) was crispy, the dolmades (stuffed grape leaves, $8) were creamy inside, the best I had in Rhodes, and the calamari stuffed with feta cheese ($12) was incredible. We ordered 2 appetizers and one meal for two people, and it was enough. In the end we had a greek yogurt with orange and cognac, superb! My only complaints are that the waiter tried to push bread on us without explaining that it was charged, the beer was not cold and the bill came in greek, so we couldn't understand the prices and the taxes. Still I'd come back for the food.

After going to a few tourist traps we started studying TripAdvisor and found out about Mama Sofias.

The location is great. Just by an old ancient lookout tower. The service was great. Greeted with a glass of local white wine and a warm welcome by the owner Stavros. We learned that the restaurant has been run by the family since 1967.

We ordered a greek plate for two which was amazing. Everything you would wish for if you want genuine greek food.

It's not a place where we could afford to eat every night but it was worth it for a memorable evening spent in Rhodes old town.

I would recommend anyone who visits Rhodes to eat here!
