We have returned to Vasilis every time we are in Rhodes Old Town. We are always amazed and delighted to be greeted like old friends. The staff are really friendly and the food is always excellent. The complimentary ouzos from Vasilis at his corner table are a welcome bonus!

We encountered this restaurant while wandering the back alleys and streets to get away from the tourist traps. Most impressed by the hostess, a young lady named Mira. The setting was pleasant and as we were there in the late afternoon during the end of the season, Mira took the time to chat and inform us of the area and... More

While the restaurant itself is quite picturesque and the staff were really friendly, the point of going to a restaurant is to eat, and for me the food was more cafe than restaurant. I had a salmon fillet and chips. The fillet wasn't that big and the chips were obviously out of a bag. Really? Come on, it doesn't take... More

We came across vasilis restaurant while wandering the old town in Rhodes. We were advised to avoid the main squares because of cost and so glad we did. What a surprise to wander into a enclosed courtyard with citrus trees overhanging the tables. The service was personal but not pushy and the lamb kleftiko was spot on a real treat.... More

Located in the Old City the internal garden is quite nice and relaxing. The food on average is not bad in Rhodes so i'll have to rate this against the other places i tried: they're all mostly good and this one doesn't disappoint much in that department. So go in, meet the nice staff, have a bite and enjoy the... More

Drawn in by the lovely garden that opens up through the old town walls, I was very pleasantly greeted and served a fantastic lunch. Although you can have Greek salad anywhere in the country, this was the best plating and freshest vegetables I've enjoyed in the past two weeks in Greece. This is the secret garden. Walk the distance and... More

I was guided here by my father-in-law, who had visited the restaurant 4 years earlier. What can I say, the tiered layout and greenery add to the ambience, the staff were friendly and courteous (strangely one of them reminded me of the American comedian Steve Carrell). However the food was excellent, plentiful portions and really tasty. For anyone who hasn't... More

We have had a week in Rhodes. This was our least favourite restaurant and I wouldn't go back. The young lady outside was brilliant, so friendly and spent some time talking to us. She was be best thing about the place. The food wasn't so great I'm afraid. Myself and my husband chose Greek dishes (as we did every night... More

Lovely venue. Only popped in for a cold drink and a snack. I had the chicken soup and it was the best I've had in a long time. The staff were so friendly, even there father came over and offered me a drink. Would defiantly go back for a full meal.
