Though this is a little out of the way. Food is traditional Greek. Well cooked and very reasonably priced.

We were lucky to find this beautiful and nice Taverna in Rhodos. We visited it several times during our stay in Rhodos and all dishes we have eaten there were so delicious. The menu offers a lot more and also more varied Greek dishes than in other Tavernas we have been before. We also liked that it was clean and... More

What a wonderful restaurant this is! It is without a doubt worth a visit. We were made so welcome by the owner Stavros and his wife. His wife cooked the food - recipes handed down from her mother and grandmother. We had 4 different main course dishes and all 4 of us raved over our own dishes. Typical greek cuisine.... More

Third time I visited this restaurant with friends and the quality is again beyond my expectations. The menu is large to choose anything you wish but I was chosen from the Greek traditional recipes. Cheese pie and the fresh herb pie are a must try. Don't forget to order stuffed vineleaves with yogurt sauce. Staff is always smiling I ll... More

I just can't get enough of "Pelecanos"! Situated into the nature,with an amasing atmosphere where, if you are lucky enough, you may see a deer crossing the road. This ideal setting in combination with a great variety of salads,appetizers,and delicious greek specialties with meat and seafood will offer you a great dinning experience. And last but not least; these people!... More

Went here as a party of 4 adults and 3 kids. Everyone at the restraunt was as friendly as could be and the owner provided food recommendations that were fantastic. The food was amazing and priced very good. The outside playground for the kids made for a relaxing evening for the adults. This place is great

Lovely restaurant in the middle of the countryside. The decor is great with a large outside seating area. The starters were lovely especially the cheese pie. The mains were nice too. Well worth the drive out there.

We called in when driving past, the staff are friendly and happy to please. They were more than happy and very helpful in sorting out what my wife could have being a celiac. It's a very typical Greek taverna where we have found you get the best food and here it is certainly true, we would recommend a visit. The... More
