Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The starters, mezes, and olive oil dishes were fantastic, with a great variety of stuffed vegetables and traditional Greek cuisine. Especially the seafood, like octopus and calamari, were extraordinary, offering a true taste of the local flavors. Make sure to make a reservation before going,...as it's a popular place with a warm and inviting atmosphere. The staff was exceptional, providing top-notch service and showing great hospitality towards both locals and visitors. Every dish was excellent, and overall, it was a delightful experience of indulgingMore

We enjoyed fantastic meals and were made to feel very welcome by everyone who found us seats, took our orders, served our meals and drinks, and the owner who took interest in ensuring our enjoyment. This is a great place to relax whilst watching the...crowd pass by.More

Excellent service and the food was amazing. We were a little tired and dishevelled after a day at Marmaris but thought after reading the reviews to make a reservation. We had eaten a late lunch which was annoying when we got there as we weren’t...particularly starving but enough for 1 course. Looking at everyone else’s food it look stunning! We have the chicken souvlaki and my partner had the mixed souvlaki. I had 2 glasses of house wine which was lovely and he had 2 beers. Not cheap but by no means not expensive so in my opinions good value for money and priced according to the quality of the food. Would 100% go back and highly recommend.More

We liked it here so much that we ate here twice during our nine-night stay in Rhodes. I ordered the stuffed mushrooms and the oregano bread with two dips, while my husband ordered the Greek Plate for one which was a huge variety (dolmades, moussaka,...greek salad, beef stifado, gigante beans, tzatziki, feta and honey pie with sesame seeds, lamb meatballs). We also shared a carafe of the house rose wine. All of the food was absolutely incredible (our favorites were the stifado, moussaka, oregano bread, and beans) and there was so much left over that we made a full dinner out of the leftovers we took away. Fantastic value for money. On a previous night we both enjoyed the souvlaki and perfectly crispy fried potatoes (the chicken souvlaki was particularly tender). After eating in a lot of restaurants in Rhodes over a nine-night stay, this was one of our top two favorites. Definitely recommended. (The house wines weren't my favorites but that's a minor quibble.)More

Mama Sofias truly deserves its reputation. It is excellent in all areas. The food quality, service, and whole experience are literally faultless. We were in Rhodes from 6th to 20th October, and Mama Sofias was still full every evening. When we return, this will definitely...be getting a return visit.More

For lunch ordered white wine, hummus, olives, pita and moussaka. Everything here was wow -- 5 of them. Service by a crew of longtime employees was perfect. It helped that the weather was wow, too.

Delighted to find a restaurant with such a varied and inexpensive menu in such a busy but beautiful location. The only difficulty for me was to choose between the seafood dishes. Staff very helpful and food very good

We visited after a lot of research on both social media, trip advisor, reviews etc. I have to say I’m quite disappointed. The member of staff at the front of the restaurant was very keen to get us to sit and have the mixed meze...for one and mixed grill. After being seated, they pay little to no interest unfortunately. If only they had the same enthusiasm once you’re seated :( The food arrived quite cold but there was nobody to flag down and nobody came to check if everything was ok. Even when clearing our plates they didn’t ask if the meal was ok. The food was just ok but quite overpriced for what it was. We’ve had a better Greek meal in the all inclusive. I wish I’d gone to a more independent restaurant without somebody trying to flag us down from the street. I am not one to write negative reviews but this was a really disappointing experience.. Don’t understand the hype sorry and wouldn’t recommend and regret my decision :( they really need to stop trying to lure people in, it’s a turn off if anything.More

What a gem of a restaurant! We enjoyed a lovely evening at this lovely restaurant. We were seated outside, it has a lovely atmosphere. The food was delicious, we had Halloumi and Focaccia to start followed by Lamb Chops and Souvlaki for main. Service was...great, waiter was friendly and very attentive. Good value, large portions, friendly staff. Would recommend you visit.More

This place came up as a recommendation over and over again! We went for my partners birthday and it was amazing, there is a beautiful garden at the back that is one of the nicest settinga I have every eaten in. Super romantic and very...Mediterranean and traditional. Stavros the owner was very personal and served the tables himself, he was worked there since he was 8 and works with a lot of his family/cousins. He takes pride in his fresh and traditional produce and the food was absolutely phenomenal, especially the sea food. The wine was great, desserts were delicious and it was very reasonably priced considering the quality. We came back again another night before we came home and it was just as good. Totally worth the hype. When you walk through roads town you see for yourself the other empty restaurants with people heckling outside to get you in, then you come to mama sofias and it's always FULL.More
