Description: Our company is established since 1992, our goal is the satisfaction of our customers with our local cuisine and impeccable hospitality and behavior of our staff offer their comfortable stay in a fantastic medieval environment. A place located in the middle of the oldest and largest medieval town of Europe. this was the incentive to create, in this space, a restaurant which respects the history and the tradition of the people, we have tried and hope we have achieved, to bind yesterday’s cuisine with today's gastronomical demands in an attempt to offer you the purity of the old and the quality and variety of the new. “fainos” (phainos) = from the Greek word “phos” (light) like in the same way phos in phenomenon, photography, phosphorus etc. It’s actual meaning is close to “enlightened”. The Greek people use the word fainos (phainos) to describe a brilliant, out of the blue, sudden idea.

“Yum”
Reviewed 21 October 2013 via mobile

Great food. Attentive and friendly staff. Gyro plate with the home made tzaziki sauce was wonderful! Humongous beers if you're do inclined.

“Good food, great service!”
Reviewed 17 October 2013

One of the best restaurants in Rhodes. You won't be disappointed. Went there in September 2013 and after trying several other restaurants and wasting money, we have found this one and came back 3 more times afterwards. The food was good, people and services was good and entertaining. Definitely not to miss if you are in Rhodes in the old town area.

“Friendly staff and great atmosphere”
Reviewed 16 October 2013

We went to this Restuarant in Late September 2013.. Loved it, we were a group of 3 couples and one young man of 12 years, comi g off a cruise ship, we wanted to go to a local Restuarant and we were not disappointed!!! The staff were fantastic, so friendly and could not have been more helpful. The food was amazing, we all had great meals.
Not one of us had a complaint!!!
A big rap for the waiters they were so friendly and happy, it was a joy to be there.

Well done to Fainos for welcoming us Aussies.

“Highly Recommended”
Reviewed 4 October 2013

Located in the old town area of Rhodes Fainos Restaurant provided a perfect base while sight seeing around the town. Both food and service were excellent and free WiFi proved to be very useful. A friendly welcome is assured!
