“Go past quickly”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

If you want fumbling staff and lies served with your food, by all means eat here. On our first visit the restaurant seemed ok, so we decided to go back with some friends. Man, how we regretted that! Most of the staff didn't quite know what they were doing half the time. The prices were high so we expected quality food and were disappointed. They also forgot to prepare one dinner, and when asked about it they lied to us. If this is the last restaurant left in Rhodes, I'll cook myself.

“Horrible. Don't go. Never. ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014 via mobile

We just went there to eat dinner. The food is just soso and very VERY expensive. The owner (and waitress) will try to catch you with good words (like "free potatos" that will never come), but when the bill comes... Cheated. Prices: 15 eur for ONE octopus leg (and very small one). Don't go, please. Only for cheating tourists.

“No thank you”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 14, 2014

I have very little to say about this restaurant, the service was very poor, it was just as though they were not to bothered if you ate or not. when the food we ordered came it was burnt and very badly presented( OCTOPUS ) WITH BITS OF SALAD. Sorry will not be going back after being recommended as a good fish restaurant.

“Nikos the angry :)) good cook”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

Nikos is a cooking artist. Artists are mostly talented extraordinary people. You have to be patient and listen to do advices. Do that because you are about to have one of your best sea food in your life. This is not an ordinary Greek sea food that you can find in many restaurant in Greek islands. They don't seem so but making their customes happy is something thet really care. It is a must go place.

“great fresh food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

Food portions are huge, and the fish is fresh. however the real charm of the place is Nikos himself (tbh no idea if this is actually his name) but he was a brilliant host, got beyond the language barrier with some funny stories. a great restaurant, one which we returned to almost every night.
