Description: Picture yourself enjoying a traditional Greek meal, with a small vilage atmosphere, with lush greennery overhead, walls covered with rustc farrmer's toolsand handmade pottery throughou.. This is Rustico!The taverna is situated on the corner of Hippodamou and Sokratous street a junction as the streets were created on the hippodamio system (a city were the streets are in blocks). The area is elevated and there were no archeological findings when excavations were performed thus assuming that a small forest existed which is a characteristic of elevated areas of that time.In the first christianic and Byzantine period after continuous destructions of the ancient town by the Persian, Goths and the Arabs and the town’s forced shrinkage into the Byzantine city the forest park which was destroyed by the fires was now open fields which was left as such for defense purposes since the distance was not far from the existing Byzantine defense wall

“Great ambience, quality food”
Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is a delightful spot with fresh, authentic Greek dishes. The waiters are charming and professional and they appear to enjoy the interaction with the diners. We tried three other restaurants in Rhodes Town and this was by far the best. We ate here four times and were never disappointed.A lovely place.

“Excellent Value”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

We visited Rustico when visiting Rhodes Old Town. Whilst wandering through the narrow streets, we were handed a map by one of the waiters. We used the map as our guide and also used it to locate the restaurant at lunch time.

We both enjoyed a Moussaka with Mythos beer followed by Greek Coffee. Excellent value in a nice taverna setting.

“Service and food is freaking awsome!!!”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

You dont want to miss this gem of a restaurant if you go to Rhodos old town... They know how to welcome you, they know how to treat you well and they know how to say goodbye in style... if you then add GREAT traditional Greek food to that - then you got yourself a great restaurant. Good prices and lots of delicious food. We went there 3 evenings in a row having dinner... first out Mezedes including mousaka, dolmades, gyros etc - Awsome! Second dinner we tried Farmers Pork and Puggi - Puggi = Great, Pork = Fantastic! Third dinner we tried Hilopites - Again, Fantastic. Do arrive hungry, the portions are generous and the food is so good that you really don´t want to leave any behind... Oh, almost forgot, the Tzatziki... omn omn omn!
