Set back on a road perpendicular from the plastic palaces on the main road, this family run restaurant is well worth the little effort necessary for a lovely dining experience. Poorly sign posted and not immediately visible from the main drag, our reception was charming by the daughter of the owner and frankly ebullient by the owner herself. The menu... More

Le Gourmet has a little more ambition in its food, and the cooking is a little more refined. Prices are fractionally higher than those roadside, but it is still far from expensive. Service and welcome means well but is a little overbearing. Menu is not so complicated that everyone needs ordering for them. Grilled calamari in particular was excellent, lovely... More

We went to check the place because of great reviews. We ordered the traditional dish of the day, lamb, which was recommended. Our expectations were high as the lamb has been really delicious in Rhodes. Unfortunately this one made an exception so based on that food we can't recommend the place. The complimentary sweets served after the bill were a... More

Hopes were high, friendly welcome on arrival but soon to be disappointed. Ordered Calamari, came with a burnt aftertaste, followed by baked lamb that was dry and flavourless. The worst meal we've had since we've been here.

We found this traditional Greek restaurant to be very welcoming and ate there several times during our holiday because of the great atmosphere and variety of food. All food was excellent cooked using fresh ingredients - in fact the owner Maria takes the time to explain where particular ingredients are sourced. We would recommend eating the Greek way allowing Maria... More

Found this restaurant from previous reviews and thought we would give it a try. service was good and friendly, food was fresh and tasty - try the fish, she bought the fish out for us to look at before it was cooked which is always a nice touch.

Cannot recommend highly enough. The food was superb traditional Greek cuisine. However, what really made the evening was the charismatic owner Maria. If you're a novice to Greek food she will expertly guide you to a selection of dishes that suit your tastes.

This little place was an absolute diamond in the rough of Ixia. The atmosphere, food, service and welcoming was just amazing. Although a little more expensive than the restaurants on the main road, it was unequivitably worth the extra 5euros for a meal. It is based on a side street by the coconut, so also being off the main road... More

Had a lovely meal in this restaurant after a few bad ones on the main Ixia strip. This is off the main strip and is a bit hard to find but well worth the effort to find it. Warm welcome felt we were eating at someone's home not a restaurant and the food kept coming just delicious! So much food... More

So I have put some reviews on, food wise look no further. This is brilliant. Had our wedding anniversary here. Three years been trying to get in! Food is freshly cooked and and run out very easily. Staff are attentive and typically Greek which is great as they do not hurry you out, like on the strip. Just off the... More
