Stavros.......your a star, he explained his menu in great detail. He's such a proud man about his food. This place is at the top end of The Old Town, top of the Main Street to your right and he's on the left hand side halfway down, opposite the Grand Masters Palace. Relaxed in the sun we had traditional Greek food... More

Went there for lunch on our first day in rhodes to get out of the rain, the food was average touristic fair. The greek salad was good but our main course was mediocre.

Even when it rains its a warm place, thanks to the dedicated waiters, and the food! It was poring rain and they did their best to keep everybody dry and 'well' fed.

Due to the time of year they are quite thinly staffed and service was not great but the owner makes everything so personal with his characteristic charm that thru can be forgiven this once. He will bend over backwards to accommodate. Everyone happy with the the food. Gluten free pasta and all options are very good.

Despite being very early in the holiday season we were attracted to Mama Sofia's by it's menu and attractive setting. We enjoyed a very pleasant evening meal with great communication with the owner of this long established family restaurant. Food was delicious and well presented. The other diners also seemed very happy with their experience. Good choice of wines too.

We visited the restaurant for lunch - food and service was outstanding so much so we also returned for supper. Without doubt both meals were the best of our trip.

The service was excellent, very friendly and welcoming. I ordered the carbonara and my partner ordered the lamb shanks. We also had garlic bread for starters, which was delicious and came with a variety of dips, the tzatziki was amazing! The best I had tried while in Rhodes. I also had a pina colada which was also very good. My... More
