Fantastic reviews on this place but it would appear that it is in Rhodes town not lindos can anyone shed any light on this
I had to look at the page to see what you mean. It looked perfectly OK and definitely says Lindos but click on the map and it takes you to Rhodes Town! Google maps, Facebook, etc often get the map location wrong and I guess this is just one of those moments.
If you want to visit Hermes 'in Lindos' walk into Lindos from the main square, you'll pass the donkey station on your right, then take the first left and you'll see the sign for Hermes, it's just above Sunburnt Arms bar.
..Hermes in Lindos is often overlooked and rarely mentioned when recommendations or favourites are sought, hence minimal/no TA reviews. Yet is a decent little place n very often a pleasant surprise. Eklecton is another thats get very little 'airtime', yet, again, is a lovely little taverna..

Unfortunately, "someone" has combined two restaurant businesses under one name - Hermes. The two Hermes involved, one in Lindos, the other in the Old Medieval Town, are not related and have nothing to do with each other. The names are similar, that is all. That means that all the reviews for both places are combined as well as photos. It is a nightmare. We are working with TripAdvisor to straighten things out. HERMES GREEK GRILL HOUSE IN OLD TOWN has a new TripAdvisor page. You can find by searching here:
Yes, most of the reviews are for the Rhodes Town restaurant - Hermes Greek Grill House - and the reviews are fabulous. Of the reviews that exists for Hermes, Lindos, there are many bad reviews. In questions asked on the Hermes page, an unfortunate person traveled to Lindos looking for Hermes Greek Grill House. He found Hermes, Lindos and declared it horrible, just as many have before him.
...there's one thing being a little miffed about TA mixing reviews together, fair enough. Yet no need to slag off the Lindos version in such an unprofessional and unbecoming manner. Funnily enough despite historic reviews the most recent Lindos one is good..hey ho... live n let live...
If your business was impacted in a drastic negative way by another restaurant's bad reviews, you might not be so generous. It is tourist season and we work hard to live in Greece these days. 12 hours per day, 24/7 for 5 or 6 months depending on the tourist population. Those great reviews for Lindos Hermes plunged our #4 rating to #101. Thankfully, we now have a separate TA page and are starting over. We have accumulated 60 reviews thus far, and everyone of them is 5 stars. I reacted emotionally in my previous post. Truthfully, I had second thoughts about posting it but could not remove it, so it stayed.
The reviews for Hermes Greek Grill House are still being counted for the Lindos Hermes as well. That is why their rating is so great. Remove HGGH reviews, and you do not have the #11 restaurant in Lindos. It was very smart of them to merge their page with ours because it removed their bad reviews from TripAdvisor altogether and placed them under our business page. Not so smart we couldn't figure out what they did though. TripAdvisor has added new security and procedures to the business merge process. I hope it works because I do not want to see anyone else to go through this devastating experience.Edited: 21 June 2018, 14:26
