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

“Turist trap”
Reviewed July 13, 2013

Worst food on this trip. Classic turist trap, pictures of food on menu. Never a good sign. However friendly staff and the kids where happy. Stay away is you don't like food that tastes like rubber.

“Nothing especially”
Reviewed July 12, 2013 via mobile

Do not understand why this is so popular. According to local people the best restaurants are outside old town. Service very good but food not more than average and far to pricey. Will not go again.

“A wonderfully cool restaurant after the heat walking up the cobbled hill”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

We went to this restaurant twice, because it looked clean cool and inviting. The staff were very
pleasant, and charming, unlike many other food vendors thay were not pushey. The menu was, varied and excellent and very reasonably priced. My husband had very enjoyable pasta dish,
and I had a Greek salad wsheddown with aery nice wine. Reading the menu we found that they
did excellent set meals but we had half board at the hotel so did no needa large meal but we
saw others enjoying the same whci looked delicious
