We decided to eat there that evening and enjoyed several more very good meals during our 8 days in Rhodes. We commend the owner/manager together with Eda and Angie for their excellent, friendly service, particularly on the... More

Staff treat you like a local. The location of the restaurant is in a street that is a bit more quiet, but still in the middle of the... More
