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.

In Old Town Rhodes, there are a ton of tourist oriented restaurants. Most have pictures of food which will not look like that when they are served. Fainos has no such pictures. What they do have is wonderful Greek food. I was deeply impressed with a Ceasar Salad that was very hearty compaired to the normal Ceasar. It was loaded with bacon, chicken, cucumber, lettuce, and more.....definitely not your mother's Ceasar Salad! The price was reasonable and the service was a delight. Well worth a try when you come to Rhodes!

We visited here when we visited Rhodes Old Town on our honeymoon in July 2014. It looked very inviting; it was traditional but yet modern. The service was fantastic and the staff were so friendly. We stopped for a quick bite to eat but ended up staying a while as we felt so welcome.

The food was great, we ordered a small selection of starters, which were all very tasty. We ordered a large beer and we were shocked when it arrived; it came in a gigantic glass and was actually a litre of beer! We didn’t order a dessert but they gave us one on the house along with the traditional shot of ouzo!

We would definitely visit again if were in Rhodes again.

Stopped at Fainos twice whilst visiting Old Rhodes town. Staff were very attentive and Tasos (the magician) stands out, as he is so friendly and encourages every one to have a good time. Manolis very politely encourages people off the street and Tasos seats them and looks after them very well.
