I'm on my honeymoon with my wife in Rhodes and we went to this restaurant last night. After being somewhat aggressively forced upstairs to the crowded rooftop terrace, we proceeded to have a laughable dining experience. Throughout the evening 3 huge crashes of broken dishes shattered the mood, and our server dropped out cutler and napkins and napkin holder multiple times. Due to the cramped searing they bumped into the dirty laminated menus twice scratching their arms and giving me dirty looks. After one such botched encounter with our server she signed heavily and began to use us as a therapist to expounding on her "off night" ( fair enough, we all have them) which was duly blamed on the full moon. After waiting nearly an hour for our souvlaki, tzaziki, and moussaka, it was cold, tasteless, and only edible by virtue of the lengthy wait which would have made a twix bar seem gourmet to our empty stomachs. The best part was sadly the irony of the other couple sitting beside us who just as eagerly waited for their orders while we couldn't help but complain about how bad ours was. Oh yeah, the red wine was served warm. Don't do it.

we were lead upstairs to the rooftop where the seating was comfortable with spectacular views of the old town including the bell tower, we were given a menu which was at first all in greek !! When we were given a english one we were surprised to see the choice on offer, we had starters and main courses with a rather nice and inexpensive jug of rose, the food was first class and the service was wonderful.

This restaraunt is write in the centre of Old Town Rhodes next to the Mosque. The veiw over the old town is good and the atmosphere is great. The choices are large although I felt that the food did not have the quality you would hope for and appeared a little pre prepared and the meat dry.

The service is good and attentive in this busy location. Worth a visit but did not stand out to me.

Great Greek family restaurant.
Jiannis and Nictarios and their entire family will impress you with their professionalism and kindness.
Greek home cooking delicious, traditional dishes as well as shellfish, fish, grilled meats. But do not hesitate to ask for what you want, they will be impossible for you to prepare your favorite dish. Add to that a good local wine such as Boutari and you will spend a wonderful evening in a very nice setting on large airy terrace on top of the old city accompanied smile and humor and Jiannis Nictarios.

We spent an evening in Rhodes town and were overwhelmed with the choice of restaurants to choose from. However, I'm very glad we decided on Castello house, it has a lovely roof top setting and was all round a very pleasant evening. The staff were very helpful even though it was rather busy and the food was delicious with lots of options from traditional Greek food to more international dishes. The atmosphere really makes the restaurant stand out and you have some great views of Rhodes town itself.
Definitely a good choice of where to eat when in Rhodes town!
