Third time I visited this restaurant with friends and the quality is again beyond my expectations. The menu is large to choose anything you wish but I was chosen from the Greek traditional recipes. Cheese pie and the fresh herb pie are a must try. Don't forget to order stuffed vineleaves with yogurt sauce. Staff is always smiling I ll... More

I just can't get enough of "Pelecanos"! Situated into the nature,with an amasing atmosphere where, if you are lucky enough, you may see a deer crossing the road. This ideal setting in combination with a great variety of salads,appetizers,and delicious greek specialties with meat and seafood will offer you a great dinning experience. And last but not least; these people!... More

Went here as a party of 4 adults and 3 kids. Everyone at the restraunt was as friendly as could be and the owner provided food recommendations that were fantastic. The food was amazing and priced very good. The outside playground for the kids made for a relaxing evening for the adults. This place is great

Lovely restaurant in the middle of the countryside. The decor is great with a large outside seating area. The starters were lovely especially the cheese pie. The mains were nice too. Well worth the drive out there.

We called in when driving past, the staff are friendly and happy to please. They were more than happy and very helpful in sorting out what my wife could have being a celiac. It's a very typical Greek taverna where we have found you get the best food and here it is certainly true, we would recommend a visit. The... More

Really nice atmosphere, we met owners who care about people's good mood. We ate the best shrimps in my life! (you probably can not find them in menu). Very good quality of the food for the price. We had 2 delicious starters (feta baked with honey and sezam and stuffed mushrooms). I really do recommend this place!

We had coffee a few times on the way to the west coast of Rhodes. Nice cofee and cold water. No Lokumi. The Mousaka was heavy but excellent. Imam bayildi was too heavy on tomato paste and masked the aubergine. Tiropitaria or its kin was very tasty. All in all a nice authentic taverna. Service is a little bit slow... More
