We had Greek dishes, stifado and kleftiko, for dinner. Both meals were very good, fairly reasonably priced and served with enough chat to make the evening enjoyable.

We found the restaurant by chance in old town Rodos.Ownwer is very talkative and presents many recommendations, so my wife agreed to sit down. We waited quite a lot, and paid quite expesively, but food was OK (both taste and the way it was served)

Really great for families with kids, they make sure everybody feels special. It's got a little extra touch of home for Danes, as the wife of the owner is Danish which eases the communication. Had such a... More

Food was average and like all the restaurants in the town, aimed mainly at passengers arriving on cruise ships. It was an pleasant atmosphere and the man at the front of the restaurant was full of chat. Laughing and joking with customers and passers bye.
