“Authentic and delicious”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

From Alexandros' welcome to Stavros' and Yannis' banter, the whole experience is a lot of fun. The food is superb - delicious and homemade. Great atmosphere, not too pushy and a real pleasure. Highly recommended.

“Fresh and fab!”
Reviewed 23 April 2014 via mobile

We were searching for a good restaurant on TA whilst coming across mama sofia's and we certainly were not dissapointed!
The service we received was unpretentious and everyone were just so warm. I wanted fish and left the choice to the chef. It was so fresh and delicious!
I was even given a balloon fish to try. Greek yogurt made by his sister was also served to us upon calling for the bill. It was a fantastic last meal in rhodes. It was such a pity we didn't locate this one earlier.

If your looking for a restaurant to visit in the Old Town, you have to go to Mama Sophia, the food is amazing and the staff are so welcoming. Myself and my boyfriend visited this restaurant back in October. Firstly, when we were looking for a restaurant to book, a lot of the other places were very pushy, shoving leaflets in your hand. However, when we arrived at Mama Sophia's we were left to look at the menu on display, only then were we approached by the main guy (cant remember his name, maybe Stavros?) to talk us through the menu. Once he was done he just said if we fancy coming we can just ask for him personally and he will get us in. So we went the following night and were greeted by lovely staff and a welcoming glass of wine on the house. We felt like part of the family. The food was amazing, I would advise anyone to go for the stuffed squid main as it is honestly the best dish I have tasted. There is plenty of choice on the menu and we were given a range of puddings at the end of our meal for free as well. It is not pricey either, especially for the quality and amount of food you get its defiantly good pricing. I would 100% go back if I return to Rhodes again!

“Mama Sofia!”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

The welcoming and sincere smile on Stavros's face was promising a superb dine and wine, which we could not resist anymore after getting exhausted walking around the old town. The traditional Greek ambience of Mama Sofia in the medieval town-centre captured us as well as the smell of finely-cooked seafood dishes which are the best on the island for the epicures. We could not decide which one overweighs: the relish of fine food or the warm hospitality. Once you experience it, you will always feel like you are a member of the family. Thank you Stavros and all the other nice staff. We hope to see you again! Love from Turkey!
