Outstanding moussaka and beet salad. Delicious tea using herbs from their garden with local honey. Is one reason we loved our Rhodes holiday.

As we'd arrived rather late and were pretty tired out, we had some salads and vegetables from the Old Monolithos taverna on our first night in the village, which were kindly picked up by Giorgos, the hotel manager, and brought to us for consumption at the hotel... the kind of thing that seems only possible in Greece! The food was fresh and very tasty - and we enjoyed it all!

This is the best restaurant in Rhodes! Shane and I have been here for lunch twice, and both times the food was amazing. On our first visit the owner made us a variety of foods to sample. Everything was delicious. Upon leaving that day we mentioned that we had yet to try truly traditional moussaka on the island. He told us he would make it special just for us, all we had to do was give notice. It was definitely worth the trip because it was delicious, and the best moussaka we have ever had! This restaurant is far more than just delicious food though. The atmosphere is welcoming, and the owner and his wife are wonderful people. We sat and talked with them for several hours. It is a great experience all the way around.

monolithos is a small and beautiful village in rhodes island. I advice to visit this village and Old Monolithos Taverna. You can eat the best aubergine salat on the world. ı guess thats not a salat, its a meal. I didnt eat fish, becouse strong wind on the sea. Thats why he couldnt go fishing, so everything is fresh and organic in this restourant. He knows many thing about gastronomy and he loves to cook something.
Just visit the Restourant or taverna. People are calling Taverna who lives in greece. However, visit there and drink or eat something. And start to conversation with Manolis... He is funny relax and he got enjoyable chat.
