This is and remains my preferred taverna in Rhodes. I'm almost back to visit this wonderful family. Yannis and his father are great in the kitchen and Sofia became a real friend in the meantime. I love to have a talk with the grandmother even if she's not speaking English very well, but it always makes me happy to see... More

About one third the way up Socrates Street, in a side street to the left (going up the hill). Next to Bazaar Supermarket (cheap place to buy food and drink). The taverna has very friendly staff, a singing canary giving a relaxing atmosphere, and good value, quality food. One of the few places open in November. Thanks for the excellent... More

Rhodes Town is an amazing place, but the problem is that there are a few places on the main streets ripping off tourists from cruise ships with crazy prices and poor food. You need to venture into the side streets. I found this place by chance, and it was quickly clear that most of the customers were very regular and... More

The first place we were recommended in Rhodes Town. A great family business serving beautiful Greek food. Thoroughly enjoyed dining here.

We chose this place because it did not seem like a typical tourist place where you are called in by the waiters. The food is great and it is tipical traditional Greek food, also the prices are up to the meals and to the portions. I woul definitely recommend trying the house wine as well, it was probably the best... More

A family-run business. Very good home made food for a good price, considering it's right in the old town center. Would definitely visit again.

We first visited Yiannis in 1990 as a young, naive couple, and more by luck, we stumbled on this great taverna. Off the main drag of Old Rhodes town, but on the edge of a picturesque and typical Greek square, complete with traditionally-garbed Greek grandmother knitting on a stool outside the taverna, we thoroughly enjoyed the food and the whole...

Having spent the past week eating homemade meals in small villages throughout northern Greece, I was expecting to be disappointed when I arrived in Rhodes, but the concierge at my hotel recommended Yiannis when I asked for "local home cooked food" Yiannis himself was there to recommend his specialties and the entire culinary experience was very delicious and satisfying. I... More

Had a tasty meal here and recieved very attentive service from the staff who were keen to make sure we all enjoyed our food. Moussaka for me, fried fish (massive portion) for my husband and pizza for my children.
