“maybe just unlucky, but really really bad”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2011

We read about this restaurant in our Lonely Planet guidebook, and they really recommended it so we thought we'd give it a try.

Unfortunately we were severely disappointed. We tried the grilled swordfish which was not fresh, grilled very badly and tasted horrible.

In the review from the guidebook it said that the restaurant had amazing desserts, so we tried to order in the dessert menu, but finally decided to leave it be.

Maybe they realized that the food was bad themselves, since they still gave us a free baklava with ice-cream. But the baklava was not home made, and the ice-cream was not good.

All in all a real disappointment, the food was not good, the prices quite high and it felt more like the ordinary tourist scams. Hopefully they just had a bad day, but we won't be coming back.

Dear Customer I read your comment and really wonder how written that I realized that our food is bad and your cherry dessert. So I have to inform you that always some dessert is on us from our restaurant to thank you for having chosen us. The quality of our food is excellent since it is home, eating out and cooked with the consent of the lonely planet. I do not know what food and what prices look for in a tourist place as is Rhodes, however, definitely we do not have treated you as tourists but as customers.

“an unpretentious restaurant with excellent dishes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2011

Do not be put off by the sightly touristy outlook. family run restaurant, very good traditional greek dishes with a twist, very helpful staff who makes good and honest suggestions for what is good. good value for money too. includes dessert - ouzo shots and pudding - free of charge.
