restaurants in october and one I cant remember!


can anyone help me? I went to Ixia 2 years ago. I stayed at the Oceanis. I remember turning left outdise and I think I went past coconuts. I saw this old sign saying food lovers gormet come this way. ended up in this little restaurant abit lacey..not modern at all but had the most amazing meze meal ever. Anyone know where or what thi is and if still any good? My folks are off to ixia in october so doing some research for them. I think I also ate in Rhodes a place called Romeo??? Had to go through a passsage and choose between several restaurants and this one looked pretty. Can anyone suggest any places for dinner or lunch in ixia or Rhodes? Also just buy oceanis hotel there is a strip of restaurants with food boards outside and waiters trying to get you in. They dont look great but one of them was nice food and huge portions. Anyone know which one that might be?

Many Thanks

The Ixia restaurant you describe is L'Gourmet we've not been there for a couple of years but it has been there and consistently good for quite a few years so expect it to still be there - most of the clientele are locals. Its in a side street off the main drag.

In the Old Town there are two Romeo restaurants - we can vouch for the original one towards the top of town (which sounds like the one you describe - its the sister restaurant of one of our favourites in Rhodes Town - Rustico) and one lower down - name spelt slightly different.

Jst got back from Ixia yesterday. We eat at Romeo on Tuesday and the food was excellent, also the place has a good atmosphere. To get there walk up the main street heading to the top and at a crossroads halfway turn left and it is on the left.

As far as restaurants in Ixia we tried Coconuts as people said it was Ok. It was disgraceful my wife's meal went back twice as the first time it was cold

(obviosly not in the microwave long enough) and even after 2 attempts it was awful. We drank and paid for the wine we had ordered and left. On the same strip there is a new place called something like Posiedonas it is an apartment complex with a restaurant at the front. Good food, reasonably priced music and dancing.

If you want a bar to drink in you use FBI bar they are so friendly, remember what you drink and generally look after you.

Any other questions let me know.

The restaurant you are talking about in Ixia is called L'Gourmet. It is still there, as we planned on eating there this year, but the kids all wanted to go back to the Old Town!!

There are some small signs showing you which side street to turn up, but you will have to keep a look out for them, as they are quite small.

We also ate a couple of times at Romeo's, Great Food!!! well worth paying a visit.
