If you go to the old town, try the mamas musaka at mama Sofia. Also really nice and smilling personel. Our new farvorite place to eat in the old town 👍 5 stars from here.

The forty seven years of operations has enabled the crafting of a perfect tourist resturant. Located in the old town, along a tourist route opposite the clock tower the system is executed with precision. In the most friendly manner they serve traditional home style Greek food with a few additions to ensure everybody's needs are met, such as pasta and... More

We ordered the stuffed mushrooms, which was ok, and seafood spaghetti. It was DELICIOUS! It had octopus, clams, mussels, a langoustine, a prawn, a small crab and perfectly cooked thick spaghetti in a marinara sauce. My friend ordered the house white wine which was a very generous pour and she reeeeally liked it. The place is run by two brothers... More

We just had a great dinner at Mama Sofias. The food was excellent, and the staff was amazing. They made us feel at home. Even gave as a great desert on the house.

Lovely restaurant with delicious home cooked traditional Greek food, tried moussaka and Kleftiko. We also tried here for lunch, the deep fried meatballs are amazing. The staff here are so friendly and they remember a face! Would love to go back.

Excellent service in a very friendly restaurant. Food is also excellent and sensibly priced. Having tried several restaurants in the town this was by far the best. Food quality is superb and portions are just right. Try the house white wine, inexpensive and easy drinking! Very enjoyable experience!

This place had the best service for us in the old town. Not high price and not low cost cheap either. The sardines and fried veg were delicious. We went back there despite the 100s of options available. We also went to Romios but found the service lacking.

We have visited Mama Sofia's twice this vacation, and were treated as family from the first time. It is a family run buisness with long traditions. They are so welcoming and service minded, we really enjoyed ourselves. The food was also what we would consider being the best in Rhodes Town. Strongly recommended! :-)
