A super-welcoming and friendly restaurant. The owner even came out and gave us his shpeel and history, lovely. Greeted by a free glass of wine always helps. The slow cooked meat dishes were one of their specialities and we weren't disappointed. I had a half litre if the house white which was very nice indeed.

Stopped in for evening meal after being recommended by a store owner. 4 in our group. When looking at the menu outside we felt the staff were a little too full on, it didn't put us off but it would for some people. Had garlic bread to start which was a great sized portion and very tasty. We then had... More

Stopped into Mama Sofias for a meal. The staff was very welcoming. We had the mixed grill and my aunt and uncle had the Greek share plate. Both meals where fabulous. Only thing I would say is that the share plates are labelled as for two, but they could easily feed 4.

We were greeted warmly. The service and food were wonderful. Stavros and his team were on the ball and friendly. The food was great as was the wine from Rhodes. Definitely recommend!

We have been in Rodos for 4 days and tried different restaurants for lunch and dinner every day. Mama Sofia's is on a fairly busy street, and the decor is not special, but the food is absolutely delicious. The eggplant and dolmades which we tried in other places was so much better here. The staff are welcoming, friendly and help... More

Visited Rhodes this weekend and whilst checking out dinner options in Old Town we passed Mam Sofia's. The "host" was very aggressive and when we said we hadn't decided and wanted to sightsee some more first he told us to "get lost" - went to Fainos instead and the food and service was brilliant!

Well, that's sth that pretty much NEVER happened in our restaurant before! Practically it isn't true because the ”host" works with us for many years and we would have already kicked him out if he ever did that! Plus, I believe you are mixing two different restaurants, as it happens a lot! I assume that the restaurant that insulted you... More

This very nice taverna is situated in the heart of Rhodes old town. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere, delicious food. While visiting Rhodes old town it was relaxing to eat lunch, in the beautiful environment (old buildings, nice small shops etc.).
