“Best Grilled Octopus ever!”
Reviewed 30 August 2013

We stumbled across this charming restaurant which was very close to our hotel. Family run, it's charm derives not just from the vine draped canopy above the tables but also the friendly and accommodating service. Having marvelled at the delicious sun dried grilled octopus on our first visit we went back a second time and were equally impressed. Having now travelled more extensively in the Dodecanese to Tilos, Nisyros, and also eaten in several other cafes in Rhodes it is clear that Paizanias really is a gem. We will be returning there on our final leg through Rhodes on our way home. I plan to eat there as many times as we can! In addition to the excellent octopus which I gather is dried on their own roof and then cooked in the outdoor charcoal grill in the courtyard, the grilled haloumi is also delicious and the Greek Salad is simply the best we have had. Another delightful surprise was the home made yoghurt and sultanas. Truly a wonderful combination! All excellent value and entirely authentic.

“Perfect for grilled fish”
Reviewed 25 August 2013

If you want very fresh whole fish simply grilled to perfection, this is the place. Dimitri will help you select the best catch for you. Good salads, calamari etc as well but the fish is the highlight. Reasonable selection of wine.

“Great atmosphere and even better food”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 via mobile

Delicious food, lots of locals, fresh fish and fruit de mer.
The red snapper was expensive ( 1 kg- 50 €), but very tasty.
The manager is very nice, very welcome and funny.
The local desert is very surprising

“One of the best”
Reviewed 14 August 2013

Sea Star Pizanias is a sea food restaurant in Old Town Rhodes. The owner Dimitri is also one of the best cooks in his restaurants that you can understand it from the taste of the delicious food. All of the sea foods are in fresh condition. Baby calamary is one of the best in this restaurant. Also eat mussel cooked with the wine. Symi shrimps I didn't like the taste because of being a little sweet. Put some garlic on top of fried potatoes. Also drink Retsina with all those delicious food. Sea urching (Akhinos Salad) is one of the best!!!
