“Great place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 28, 2013

Lunchtime out if season, before they closed up we went along for a lunchtime fish meal. beautiful and fresh as always, de boned along with a decent wine and salad , just perfect. It was quiet and peaceful the views can be marred by the bushes in front of the wall, but its definately a place to visit.

“It doesn't get better than this”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

Out of all the holidays I have been on the Philosophia is etched in my memory. The views, the ambience, the atmosphere, the great food and the essence of Greece.
Your mind and soul are soothed as you listen to the sea lapping up beneath you while your taste buds are tantilised.The pork in honey and pink peppercorns and walnut cake will go down as one of the best meals I have ever had.
Greece, Pefkos, Philosophia, what a special place. See you in September, can't wait

“Always great & never lets you down!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 12, 2012

After being a regular customer of Philosophia for years, i deceided to leave a brief feed back! The reason is simple: Iam/ we are always amazed and we wish people to know about it!

Atmosphere: Greek, Cozy, Smart but at the same time traditional. Great setting especially if you go during sunset - amazing views!
Staff: What can i say! The team (almost the same in the kitchen and out every year) is professional, friendly and they adore what they do - as a result this passes over you (guest).
Food: Greek / Mediterranean, cooked properly, always fresh, extremely tasty - Fantastic starters, pasta, fillets made using Phillipe's (boss) & Nikos's (chef) philosophy and creativity. Same high level quality, food styling and performance always!
Prices: Very good for the quality / service you get
Wine list: Many good restaurants in other Mediterranean resorts (also Global famous capitals) would be jealous about it! Absolutely great!

Overall if this restaurant with this team, quality, service, menu was somewhere else (from the still fantastic Pefki resort in Rhodes) such as London, Mallorca, Nice, NY, Paris etc iam sure it would be famous globally and Phillipe the owner would be a millionaire! :))

No matter where you stay while spending your holidays in Rhodes, this is a must!

P.S - Not to forget / During the day, amazing snacks, sandwiches, lunch options followed by one of the big variety of cold beers offered and while sunbathing (just under the restaurant you will find the amazing beach of Pefkos)

“Fantastic setting for wedding reception”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 14, 2012

We had our wedding reception in the beautiful Philosophia. The staff were so friendly and welcoming. They set up a large table in the middle of the room for our party. The food was to die for!!! They gave us a selection of traditional greek dishes for our starters and main courses and wine for the table was included in the very reasonable price.
We had young children in our party and the staff were very accommodating.
They have a small gazebo area down near the beach where they let us do our wedding speeches, away from the main restaurant. This helped keep our wedding day intimate and romantic.
They let us choose the music towards the end of the night, so we were able to do our First dance.
Cannot recommend this place enough. We are so happy we spent our wedding evening here!!!

Absolutely perfect!!!! :)
