“Loved this place!”
Reviewed June 12, 2014

Boukia Boukia (Mnoukia Mnoukia) was our best experience of a real Greek taverna as it should be. In Platonos Street off Socratous Street. You'll find hundreds of smarter, more 'designer', more expensive places in the Old Town ... and there are waiters calling your attention elsewhere in the main squares. None of that hassle here.The Boukia Boukia is an authentic small family run restaurant, and recommended by many of the small hotels in the Old Town for its cooking. Brother and sister, Filimonas and Dimitra run the place - and they invited us into the kitchen to choose what we would like. No pretension, no high prices. We paid £20 for a lovely meal for two which included half a litre of retsina. Filimona and Dimitra were both very friendly and helpful and obviously took pride in their local tradition and cuisine. If you are looking for same-old, same-old with hordes of crowds - go elsewhere. If you want to try local and traditional - then Boukia Boukia and a handful of other places in the Old Town still offer this kind of charm and authenticity. I will definately go back. Really worth supporting a business like this I feel.

“As a Greek taverna should be”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

No one tries to entice you inside, there's no hassle, it's all Greek home cooking, excellent prices, view what's in the kitchen that day then decide what to eat (traditional way of doing things), it's off the main 'drag' so quiet, fantastic food, nice folk and there's none of that "pretending to be Greek" stuff you get at bigger places in the OId Town; it is Greek 100% and a small business worth supporting.

“At last a good restaurant in Rhodes!”
Reviewed May 16, 2014

We spent a couple of days in Rhodes as tourists, and were extremely annoyed to be collared every two meters by those bad restaurants only interested by getting as much money as they can from tourists, providing them the cheapest (understand worst) possible food.
Boukia Boukia is not like those, and this is already a good sign. The second good sign is that you are invited to visit the kitchen when you arrive to make your choice easier. Food is absolutely delicious, well cooked and tasty (we especially enjoyed the stuffed eggplants, the giant beans and the homemade apple cake). Service perfect. Great Quality to Price ratio.
We eventually came twice to Boukia Boukia, the second time being right after having started an awful meal in the restaurant just next to Boukia Boukia... so now you know where to go if you feel hungry in Platanos street!

“It was OK.”
Reviewed April 18, 2014

It's a home-cooked meal and you choose what goes on your plate from the items prepared for the day in the back. The options didn't look too appetizing so I filled my plate with as many different portions as I could and they were all...OK. Nothing to write home about though. The home-brewed beer was a nice touch, but again, it was only OK. The restaurant is better than most of the touristy restaurants in the area, but only marginally so. I left full but I was hoping for better.

“This is a great find”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

This is non-touristy, traditional, and the kind of restaurant I search for when traveling. You pick your food in the kitchen and it comes out immediately. Nice place to people watch off the main drag.
