We had rather high expectations for this restaurant at the recommendation of our hotel and even had reservations made 2 days prior to ensure we could get in. The reason I am giving this such a low rating is the interaction we had with the restaurant staff. This is a family owned restaurant like most here in Rhodes. The "mother"... More

Nice setting ...hidden away on a raised terrace. The red house wine was very good. We had lamb chops and sea bream. Both were very tasty. The lamb would have been better with a few vegetables...served with a bit of mash only. For dessert we had lemon cream which was very tasty. The restaurant was busy and quite lively.

What a find! Its situation and location is well hidden in the old town. Blink and you will easily go past it. We had to book in advance which apparently is par for the course for this fantastic little restaurant. The menu is great and offers lots of choice for meat and fish lovers (try the lamb cutlets in red... More

Perfect in every way. The location maybe a little tricky to find, but once you do, the experience will have you going back again. The 'momma' is a darling, as were her 'boys'. Made you feel very much like an old friend, when you have only just met. The staffs knowledge of the menu was fantastic & the relaxed way... More

The staff are lovely and friendly and the outdoor area has a great lively atmosphere. Marco Polo definitely was the best place to eat in Rhodes, we had the special of the night a pork belly and it was succulent and the flavours melted in your mouth. Given you have to book usually a couple of days in advance shows... More

'Marco Polo' doesn't really sound authentic greek, but the food is delicious. The best food by far that we at the limited number of days we were at Rhodes and Simi. The waiter was charming and took all the time to explain us the wines on the wine list being quite knowledgeable. Great place for authentic Greek dinner. It is... More

Everything was lovely. Food was very good. Wonderful ambiance and attentive service. Special treat were the homemade lemon and berry liqueurs. Worth the stroll down the narrow streets of Old Town.

Perfect restaurant, very good food in a nice and quiet courtyard in the old town. The owners are friendly and give you good advices. The food is perfectly cooked and the menue is various and unusual. This is THE place where we go each time we have a stop to Rhodos.... and it is always the same pleasure !
