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.

You need to book in advance if you want a seat.

The food, wine, location were all delightful. The service started incredibly well. That said we had finished our food and wine and were left with the plates in front of us for 45+ minutes. We’d happily have stayed for a dessert and coffee (and possibly more
wine) but after seeing another couple have their plates cleared we decided it best we left. We just felt ignored.

What’s frustrating is that this place is busy and they were turning away those who hadn’t booked yet we were sat with nothing in front of us for some considerable time and were prepared to spend and eat more.

As a side note the vegetarian options are limited but what they do offer is lovely.

Though this places offers excellent chocolate pie served with ice cream and outdoor seating under the tress in the summer, I really loved the cozy and warm inside place during the winter. The decoration is like a traditional house and you must also try their bugatsa. Excellent quality coffee too!

I created a TripAdvisor account, just to write this review, that is how extremely welcommed we felt there. The staff is so friendly and caring, the food is awesome and the restaurant itself gives a real feeling of Greece with it's traditional design and local music. Actually, this photo says it all :)

Koukous was recommended to us by the amazing team at Krinis Apartments. Just one of a few of their excellent recommendations. Krinis is a restaurant, cafe and hotel. While placed on a very popular tourist strip in Rhodes, this restaurant is far from touristy and is popular among the locals. Again, this was a fantastic meal on our trip and has a place at the top of our best restaurants ever list. The cocktails at this place are definitely something to note, despite it not being a cocktail restaurant, they were mixed to perfection and you could taste they were made from top quality ingredients. We had an incredible salad with a delicious vinegar and honey dressing, crispy traditional Rhodes pita with dips and a mixed meat platter to share for two, although there was so much it could've easily fed four. We also enjoyed a nice dry bottle of retsina, a white wine. The team were very attentive and we loved their apron uniforms so much we got one as a souvenir. In the cafe of Koukos they also have delicious rice pudding (rizogolo) made by Aplos. Ask for some for breakfast the next day. Super good!! A lovely team and delicious meal with lots of thoughtful touches. Don't be afraid to ask for takeaway if you can't finish your meal. It makes a delicious lunch for the next day!
