Description: Located right next to Medieval Town of Rhodes, Locanda Demenagas Greek restaurant promises a unique food experience that will transfer you into culinary dreams found only in the old recipes and flavours of our grandmother. Serving several traditional greek plates, having the locals in mind, it managed to be a point of reference for them as an authentic, tasty and affordable Greek cuisine. Locanda works all year round contrary to other restaurants that open only for the touristic season and as a small family run business is proud of its hospitality and originality. If you are visiting Rhodes for a short vacation and want to enjoy a non touristy meal then you should give it a try and stay assured that it will be one of the highlights of your trip.

“Our second home in Rhodes!”
Reviewed May 22, 2014

My husband and I have travelled all over the Mediterranean in our sail boat-(my husband is French so he knows great food} and the Locanda is the best restaurant we have found. It is the best food you can imagine and at an affordable price. The welcome is wonderful; the ambiance is warm and inviting and there is an amazing ocean view!
The dorade (sea bream) fish casserole and chicken casserole (coq au vin) are divine! The best imam and moussakka we have ever eaten! Everything is fresh and delectable! We cannot say enough about this jewel of a restaurant. We love talking with the owner who is a charming, sophisticated, worldly man. And his daughter and son-in-law are lovely. You see we have gotten to know the whole family as we have been eating there ….every day each time we came to Rhodes over the last 2 years. It has been our second home!

“Best Greek food in Rhodes town - a great experience”
Reviewed May 21, 2014

The restaurant is owned and run by the Demenagas family. Mr Demenagas who clearly has a true passion for cooking gets up at about 5 a.m every morning he told me to produce a stunning arrray of authentic Greek dishes - different every day. The day we were there there were dolmades, roast chicken, giovetsi, octopus in red wine, moussaka, Greek roast potatoes, slow-cooked pork, dorade baked with tomatoes and potatoes, fish soup, chorta and more. It all looks so delicious it's hard to choose. Excellent olive oil is served with the bread. The restaurant looks appealing and the tables are nicely set with linen tablecloths. The view of the harbour is stunning. The restaurant is decorated with fascinating old pictures of Rhodes.

“By far my best experience in Rhodes”
Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

I had noticed this restaurant on the way from the ferry pier to the Old Town. Since the few open places in the Old Town did not look all that appealing I decided to give it a try and I was glad I did.
The rooster I had on my first visit was good enough that I went back two days later. The horta pie and the prawn saganaki that I had then were very fine. Housewine was surprisingly good, especially the red one.
What I liked most was the cozy, friendly atmosphere. It's a little bit classier than your average Greek taverna, with nice tablecloth and crockery, without being formal. Many locals came and went, to dine, to pick up take away meals or just for a chat.
Highly recommended!

“Best typical greek cuisine”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

My dad suggestet us this place. The food was so good, we couldn't stop eating (we had to sit more than an hour after the dinner, because we couldn't move anymore) and the prices were very reasonable. The staff was very nice - we went inside the kitchen to choose our meal. Everything was prepared fresh & looked & smelled awsome.
Thank u for giving us the opportunity to try the best greek food!
We will come back =)
