I haven't been boiled over by Rhodian food so far, until today. I was very wary of this place, being right beside the main tourist attraction and having a man outside trying to entice me, but entice me he did, and I was very satisfied. I had the briam, n it was one of the tastiest Greek meals I've ever... More

Run by the Yannis family. Food authentic, fresh and tasty. Friendly service. A complete contrast to the high pressure sales a few streets away. Yannis is an oasis of calm and good food in Rhodes Old Town

Try "buyurdi", if you like feta (cheese). Delicious meze and fish. Fresh environment under trees in a garden. Friendly service.

No razzmatazz. No young men trying to lure you into the restaurant as usual in Rhodes Old Town. A lady in traditional costume sits outside. Yianni's Restaurant has links to Karpathos in the Dodecanese where the older women wear this costume every day. We shared a starter of skordalia and then had moussaka and grilled chicken with potatoes. We were... More

We've been here actually tonight: we saw an old lady outside dressed in traditionnal clothes and we immediately thought it is a family owned restaurant with genuine local food. And so it is! Soup from the house - at the beginning: a great surprise, we've loved it! We ate calamari and Maridaki(small fish) and they were perfect, large portions too.... More

Have been to Yiannis many times over the years and it never disappoints. It is a small family run restaurant in the Old Town which serves good food, good sized portions and is good value. Highly recommend.

Back tonight before flying off. Always impressed with the friendly greeting and tasty Greek cuisine. On the back streets, but worth a visit. Value.

Pleasant staff, average quick snack food, there is a wide choice on the menu, it's primarily a bar, so don't expect much other than average food.

We ate here a couple of times because we liked the choice of food they had available and we liked what we had on the first visit. There service was good even though the owners were not as 'warm' as those at some of the other tavernas. We enjoyed the complimentary soup we had both times and it was the... More
