We were looking for a place for lunch but we're put off by the aggressive men trying to talk us in to their restaurants. We turned down a side street and came across a lovely grandma dressed in traditional Greek clothing sitting at a taverna with brightly colored tablecloths and a singing canary. We sat right down. We shared a... More

We stumbled on this taverna by accident and it is a little gem, genuine Greek food and service in a sea of tourist traps. Excellent free soup served as starter and all the standard Greek fare at very reasonable prices.It is open in the evening in April when many others had shut

This is and remains my preferred taverna in Rhodes. I'm almost back to visit this wonderful family. Yannis and his father are great in the kitchen and Sofia became a real friend in the meantime. I love to have a talk with the grandmother even if she's not speaking English very well, but it always makes me happy to see... More

About one third the way up Socrates Street, in a side street to the left (going up the hill). Next to Bazaar Supermarket (cheap place to buy food and drink). The taverna has very friendly staff, a singing canary giving a relaxing atmosphere, and good value, quality food. One of the few places open in November. Thanks for the excellent... More

Rhodes Town is an amazing place, but the problem is that there are a few places on the main streets ripping off tourists from cruise ships with crazy prices and poor food. You need to venture into the side streets. I found this place by chance, and it was quickly clear that most of the customers were very regular and... More

The first place we were recommended in Rhodes Town. A great family business serving beautiful Greek food. Thoroughly enjoyed dining here.

We chose this place because it did not seem like a typical tourist place where you are called in by the waiters. The food is great and it is tipical traditional Greek food, also the prices are up to the meals and to the portions. I woul definitely recommend trying the house wine as well, it was probably the best... More

A family-run business. Very good home made food for a good price, considering it's right in the old town center. Would definitely visit again.

We first visited Yiannis in 1990 as a young, naive couple, and more by luck, we stumbled on this great taverna. Off the main drag of Old Rhodes town, but on the edge of a picturesque and typical Greek square, complete with traditionally-garbed Greek grandmother knitting on a stool outside the taverna, we thoroughly enjoyed the food and the whole...
