Nice looking restaurant up from the main restaurant area. Nice staff but the food was not so good. The fresh fish was dry and other dishes were just ok. Nothing to call home about.

We have been many times and have eaten very nice food and all the staff have been very kind with us. We think of returning during our next Holiday in Rhodes.

Absolutely my favorite restaurant in Rhodes. Fantastic food, great atmosphere. The staff is friendly and the service is excellent. I have celiac disease and that was not a problem in this place. I will absolutely go back to this restaurant next time I go to Rhodes....I already miss it.

We stumbled into Rustico for lunch when we were in Rhodes for a few hours on a cruise. Boy are we glad we did! Delicious Greek salads! Friendly waiters and beautiful courtyard garden. Wish we could have gone for dinner too....

Rustico is one of our favourites in Rhodes Town. Although tucked away at the top of the Main Street this restaurant is always busy welcoming old and new friends. The staff are very attentive and the food is amazing.

We had a great time in Rustico Taverna in Rhodes! The food was very well tasting, the service was splendid and the staff was really nice and friendly. In the middle of the noise and crowd in Rhodes Town, it was really nice to sit down and enjoy our dinner in a wonderful garden!

The restaurant is wonderful both in atmosphere, the people that work there and the food. We have been to Rhodes several times and tried many nice restaurants. This is however definitely our favorite and we go there as many times as we can.

Picture yourself enjoying a traditional Greek meal, with a small vilage atmosphere, with lush greennery overhead, walls covered with rustc farrmer's toolsand handmade pottery throughou.. This is Rustico!The taverna is situated on the corner of Hippodamou and Sokratous street a junction as the streets were created on the hippodamio system (a city were the streets are in blocks). The area is elevated and there were no archeological findings when excavations were performed thus assuming that a small forest existed which is a characteristic of elevated areas of that time.In the first christianic and Byzantine period after continuous destructions of the ancient town by the Persian, Goths and the Arabs and the town’s forced shrinkage into the Byzantine city the forest park which was destroyed by the fires was now open fields which was left as such for defense purposes since the distance was not far from the existing Byzantine defense wall
