My wife and I were looking for an authentic Greek meal and were lucky to find this restaurant. What an incredible experience! When we arrived, their were no guests, so the two lady cooks came out of the kitchen to greet us. They welcomed us back into the kitchen, so we could see what was being prepared for the evening's dinner. They allowed us to pick out any items we liked to build a huge plate of fresh fish and vegetarian dishes - all for under 10 euro! They also had meat dishes, but we were not interested based on our preferences.

If you want to get away from overpriced tourist traps and standard fare,then I recommend giving this nice little restaurant a try to experience local cuisine.

In a side street, not far away from the hassle of Socrates street, we found this little gem of Greek home cooking. We got the tip from a local, and we were surely not disappointed and we repeated our visit several times during our stay in Rhodes old town.
I loved the concept. As soon as you come in, you are invited in the kitchen to choose from the selection of dishes of the day. There is no menu, but the prices are democratic and this "system" gives you the opportunity to try different things and at the same time you know exactly what you order beforehand. I guess you could call this a fast slow-food venue :-) The food was really delicious, and there are plenty of choices for vegans and vegetarians as well! Such a wonderful, relaxed place after all the tourist traps on the main street in Rhodes. Friendly family running the place. A must if you like casual dining and delicious home cooking!

Small & very familiar, we went there by recommendation of the owner of Hotel isoles, great place to eat! You have to choose from a variety of around 10 plates, the food is served on a big plate and payed by weight. All the dishes are excellent, very spicy and tasteful. Even a simple rice tasted like heaven! - Price is very convenient. If you want to go where locals go, don´t miss it!

Our hosts at the hotel, Mara and Francesco recommended this restaurant. It is a small family run place with about 8 tables or so.
This is where you get the Greek home cooking. We were greeted right away by the owners and told to wait about 5 minutes and the mother would be ready for us. She has no set menue, it is what ever the selections she cooks that day. We were invited into the kitchen and made our selections after she explained what every dish was. The food was excellent and extremely reasonable in price. Give this a try you won"t be sorry!
