Waked past the restaurant kitchen whilst exploring the meandering alleys of medieval old Rhodes and was stopped by the delicious aromas. So marked it as somewhere to try. Went back early in the evening and was lucky enough to be squeezed in early. What a thoroughly marvellous experience. *****+. The ambience in the courtyard restaurant is calm and cool amongst...

Place is great. Good location and food, a bit arrogant service. Our food was very good, but the service was not. Our glasses were not refilled and we were ignored or whispered and pointed at. The service was very slow with long periods of time when we would not see our server. For the price and the positive reviews, we... More

When we planned our trip to Greece we hoped to eat lots of fish, but we didn't see fish on the menu as much as we expected. So when we dined at Marco Polo, we had a fish appetizer (I believe it was a sea bass carpaccio) and two fish entrees. The food and wine were fabulous and served by... More

On their last day of operations before closing for the season, we were fortunate to get an apparently high sought after table. And we saw why. Excellent service. A great variety of menu options, as well as daily specials. We had a fish fillet and beef fillet. All our food, from starter to dessert was incredibly tasty. This restaurant would... More

Really great food, and probably the best atmosphere in Old Town on its garden roof terrace. A hidden treasure in the Old Town. I recommend to find the place in advance. It can be difficult to find. Five years since last visit, and we will definitely visit again. Next time, hopefully to stay at the mansion as well. Rather small... More

This restaurant experience sits comfortably with the title 'fine dining'. The quality of the food is outstanding and the menu innovative. The setting is stylish and properly reflects its Mediterranean root. What sets the restaurant apart is the charm and style of those that serve the food. They balance service with friendliness perfectly and their sense of fun and self... More

What a treat. Fabulous garden restaurant tucked away through and almost invisible door. Food was sensational. A modern treatment for old favourites combing traditional, village with new techniques and combinations.

Marco Polo Cafe had been recommended to us during our stay In Rhodes. It has been one of the highlights of the visit. The menu is outstanding, the service is exceptional, and the atmosphere remains casual, friendly and relaxed. I honestly can't recommend this highly enough.

We heard about this restaurant in 2015, we went there but unfortunately there were no tables for dinner (they open at 7 pm I think). So, we agreed that we will go back next day. We have been there minimum six times since. The food is perfect, We always sit at Andrea's table (the other waiter is his brother, this... More

Marco Polo is one of the best restaurants in Rhodes. The staff sits down at the table to help you choose, offering to give you half portions when possible if you can't make up your mind, and it is difficult to choose. We went twice, and everything we had was delicious—sea bass carpaccio, salads not necessarily Greek but with local... More
