“Lovely food but very windy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2011

All of the restaurants here are outdoors, so everywhere will generally be windy when you are eating. However, where we were seated here it was extra breezy and I found my hair flying into my face and mouth when eating, which kind of ruined the dining experience. But it was a very busy night so you can't always be seated where you want to be. The food was lovely, and a decent price for two meals and two starters. We had been recommended this restaurant by friends who had visited previously, and we are glad we visited as we had a lovely meal there will very good service by the staff.

“The best meal of our holiday”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2011

This was the first place we dined during our stay in lindos and also the last as went back after trying a number of restaurants, this being the best on quality and service. The atmosphere was great, a busy place but plenty of staff who made sure all our dining needs were met. The roof top terraces offered great views to the resort and the beautiful acropolis. Wasn't the cheapest meal, but found the holiday in general rather expensive this time but that's owing to the current economic crisis

“Just OK”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 October 2010

We went with a view to have dinner but only ended up having a drink here. There was only ourselves and another family in the large restaurant so there was absolutely no atmosphere. We noticed the other table's starters took forever to arrive. One of the waiters was quite friendly but the other was truly miserable. We finished our drinks swiftly and left. It's a shame as the views are stunning.

“Poor. Starters were good. Main course was...”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 October 2010

Poor. Starters were good. Main course was terrible. When this was pointed our the waiter laughed and smiled. The mixed grill was chewy as and came with under cooked potatoes. The stifado was also very chewy. Poor quality meat. When taken further with another member of staff he spoke with a strong Greek accent and broken English. Moments earlier he was speaking with a southern (england) accent. Very abrupt and insulting. Counted out the change on his return.

“Loved It, Great Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 September 2010

Although we were half board in our hotel (Aquagrand) we ventured into Lindos for our evening meal on a few occasions and dined at Alex's twice. The food and service were fantastic, I would particularly recommend the peppered steak, one of the best I've ever had. The staff were always very friendly and neither were we rushed or kept waiting on either occasion. We sat on the roof garden both times and it has beautiful views over Lindos which is particularly romantic as the sun goes down. Would recommend Alex's to anyone and would definitely visit again when back in Lindos.
