Description: "Here you can smell Greece" In the center of the town, at the bustling pedestrian 'Nikiforos Mandilara', you can find the traditional rooms of KOUKOS. A traditional listed building since 1930 combines perfectly accommodation and restaurant services. KOUKOS has traditional suites fully equipped with fireplace for the winter season, TV, A/C, free internet and room service. Bed in sofa, handmade carpets and decoration in collectives and antiques. Inner place with classic characteristics of ald architecture will travel you in the old Rhodian era. If you wish to feel the magic of old Rhodes, KOUKOS is the ideal place. Leaving the block of rooms you will find the restaurant. Traditional wood oven burns since early morning in order to prepare your breakfast. Hot bread, pies and sweets baked in wood oven hand made by us with selective local products. Kitchen delivers traditional Rhodian recipes for meze and baked food, but also meat and fish in charcoals. Varieties of salad and appetizers. Traditional koulouria (fresh local pasta) all made with care and tradition. KOUKOS bar is where you can taste Greek coffee in ember (Hovoli), Traditional Souma spirit and local wines. The place includes library for relaxation and also conference room with TV and projector. Food and drinks can be served all day.

Reviewed 11 June 2014

I enjoyed koukos because the quality was very good and the prices were good but above all it attracted many locals who also recommended it to us, so it doesn't feel like a tourist trap rather than a genuinely good local restaurant

“Excellent food and value for the money”
Reviewed 7 June 2014

This cafe was referred to us by a friend and on our last visit to Rhodes we also went to check this place out. Excellent food, nice service and absolute the place to try out their sandwiches! We expexted to get just plain sandwiches, but this place does them in their own way - EXCELLENT. I would recommend this cafe for a snack and a beer anytime.
