We recently accepted an invitation from friends to dine with them.

Firstly I would like to say table selection outside is the best view of Lindos at night with he Acropolis in view. The ambiance was second to none.
We had a truly outstanding warm welcome from the family run restaurant.

The menu was extensive and I recommended the stuffed plums to start.... A real yummy treat!
Main course I had peppered steak which was superbly cooked. Everyone commented on how nice their meal was.

The chef even made us a special dish to try based on local produce in season. This was an exceptional treat ... Well done!!!!

I feel this restaurant in essence is a Greek extravaganza with the perfect service and a magical ambiance.

The ambience is good,the staff are enthusiastic but the food was not what was expected.The steak was undercooked,the chicken was overcooked,the fish was just fish.
Sadly not are other better restaurants not so highly rated in Lindos.

Arhontiko set at the top of the winding Main Street is an old captains house beautifully restored inside.
Dimitri the owner could not be more attentive and all the staff are wonderful
The food was so nice
Grilled cheese to start with tomatoes and balsamic
Steak Tendura for main with caramelised onions
All cooked superbly
We did not have a dessert because we were so full!!!!
The main dish was huge !!!!
A nice touch was the chef came out to meet and have a little chat at the end
All Niall wonderful evening
So if you're in Lindos pop in and sample lovely food which is a little different to the normal greek style.

We were recommended this place by locals and previous tripadvisor reviews and felt confirmed. Traditionally decorated, which unique and tasteful dishes, good service, and a great view from the rooftop (but also a nice interior for "bad"-weather days).

It's always worth a trip to Lindos if you are staying nearby. It's all steps and hills though so take your time. This restaurant is a little out of the main buzz, but not too far. The restaurant is an old 16thC Captain's house, so the setting is lovely. We were given complimentary fresh warm bread and a selection of butter/dips before the main meal. We ate moussaka (beef) and steak. The service is good, and relaxed. The steak was good, but the moussaka was a bit stodgy, I prefer it a bit more traditional whereas this looked perfect but tasted ok rather than delicious. Have eaten here before and was not disappointed though. The food presentation is great.
