If you want excellent real Greek food (not the stuff that's meant to be sold to tourists), this is as good as it gets. It's what you would find at the dinner table if you were from a Greek family. What's really nice is its dishes have a Rhodian influence with regional herbs and spices. And how many restaurants invite you to the back in the kitchen to show you what the specials for the day are?? Lastly, given the quality and authenticity, the prices can't be beat.

Almost in the center of the most popular monument-the Old Town of Rhodes island,in a quiet little street,you can find one of the best restaurants in the city.
Living in Rhodes for a whole life,having travelled a lot and working in the Old Town for five years now,i can tell that this little tavern is an oasis between the touristic "restaurants" that are drawing the customers,drowning the quality and raise the prices in crazy amounts.
Here you can taste a huge variety of home made food.
Being a Greek i can find,between the several plates, food that my mother and grandma are cooking. Everything is fresh made,cooked the same morning (as nothing can last till midnight,when the restaurant finaly closes). We can choose between lots of different food that covers all the tastes (from fish to meat, vegetables and rich salads),drink the delicius home made beer (when is available) and be treated with the most fresh fruits and home made sweets and liquors. To order,we can see everything to the place where the food is cooked and create our own plate,combining whatever seems to be more delicius. Sometimes the only negative thing is that it's so hard to choose... But no choice can be wrong!! And except the food that is already prepared,it's always possible to order the most popular and traditional greek food to be cooked strate away.
The restaurant is a family business,so the owners are cooking and serving themselves. The service is always fast and warm,however busy they can be.
Eating there (almost) every hard working summer day,i can highly recomend it to everyone: to the visitor,who wants to have a real taste of Greece in a realy good price (no meal costs over 8 or 8,50 euros per person) and to everyone who needs to spend a pleasant afternoon or evening with good friends and nice food. And this is what i do to whoever asks me where he can find a nice,non-touristic and non expensive restaurant.
Don't miss it. And enjoy!!!!!!

We went to Boukia Boukia on the recommendation if our hotel and ended up eating there three times in four days!! It's best for lunch. There are no menus and you are invited to look at what's been prepared that day in the kitchen and choose what you like. There are different things each day and a good range of meat and vegetable options (which I was craving - Greece is so meat heavy). There are no prices but don't be deterred - it is dirt cheap! You will be pleasantly surprised! I wish there were more restaurants that operated this way. It's great!

We went to Boukia following a recommendation, and upon arriving we were told by the owner that lunch was not ready come back in an hour! We are so glad that we did. Greek (tapas size/style) dishes to die for and an unhurried approach with good house wine! It was so cheap that we though that there had been a mistake with the bill! Go to Boukia!
(It was so good we went back later that afternoon for another drink and snack!)
