We ate dinner here one night and enjoyed it so much we returned to eat here again the following night. This is unusual as we tend to try different restaurants and dishes each night but the decor, quality and presentation of the food and service here was exceptional. We didn't have a bad meal in Rhodes Old Town in a... More

We were initially impressed by one of the front line staff members (Angie) whilst passing this restaurant and enquiring about a fish menu. We decided to eat there that evening and enjoyed several more very good meals during our 8 days in Rhodes. We commend the owner/manager together with Eda and Angie for their excellent, friendly service, particularly on the... More

The service was prompt and friendly and we didn't have to wait for a table. The decor to the restaurant is what attracted us when compared to the rest of the competition on the street. The only let down was the menu was not explained very well when we were ordering and the wine we ordered was not to our... More

We had such a lovely experience at this restaurant. The restaurant is not too hectic, staff was just lovey and the food was excellent. This was our best dining experience in Rhodes. Staff treat you like a local. The location of the restaurant is in a street that is a bit more quiet, but still in the middle of the... More

We found this place by accident one evening in Old Town, It`s up one of the many side streets but worth finding. I mentioned the words Gluten free expecting a blank look but the waitress was very helpful, she asked the chef about my first choice(orange and curry lamb) but he wasn`t sure so I had the home made Kleftico(which...

We travel a lot and always sample the local dishes. Greece is one of our favourite destinations. And as a kind of challenge, and of course because we enjoy them we always try to get a pita gyros for lunch. The restaurant is hidden in one of the smaller side streets of the old town and we are fortunate to... More

Visited the beautiful Island of Rhodes only for few hours due my participation in a cruise thus had no time to see the Island. As per some recommendations of some locals we visited La varka tavern/restaurant to have some fish for our dinner. Weather was nice thus we choose to sit outdoor. Atmosphere of the restaurant is good. Same and... More
