Don't be misguided by the modest looking interior. If you want to sample some of Rhodes finest food, then you need to eat here. We had an immediate warm welcome and the frontman spoke of his menu with passion and truth about the impressive menu...More

Fabulous selection of dips and pita bread. 500 ml beers €2! Just round the corner from the mosque. Lovely ambience and cool garden courtyard setting on a blisteringly hot day.

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
