This is a very quaint little place to eat really good food and have a drink. It is outdoor with beautiful flowers and plants and music is played whilst you relax. It's difficult to find, it's not in the open. It's on Socrarus street, which is in the old town. It's a bit of a hill and is on the... More

Called in here for a drink one night when walking round Rhodes Old Town at night. What a perfect little oasis in the middle of a busy yet fascinating place! Couldn't believe our eyes! Trees of all sorts, waterfalls, clean toilets, great service and drinks all just off a busy main thoroughfare. A lovely place to spend a relaxing time.

Lovely bar hidden away in the old town. Fab simple and reasonably priced Greek food with an awesome cocktail selection. Friendly bar staff and attentive waiters (especially christophus). Best Appletinis in Rhodes! Would definitely recommend for late afternoon/ early evening drinks. The surroundings are beautiful, definitely a secret garden!

Visited this bar and restaurant with my wife a few years ago and had excellent food and drinks. Recommended it to friends who were off on holiday to Rhodes and on their return they told me it was still excellent, they had eaten there three times, twice for lunch and once for dinner. It is a quiet oasis in the... More

We first visited here purely by chance when in the old town for a day when they used to have parrots in the garden. Last year visited again and had to go back when we returned to the old town - you escape the hustle bustle and hassle from street side restaurants into this open air garden venue - simple... More

Tucked away while still right in the heart of Rhodes Old Town. A cool tranquil shady garden with water features and fast wifi. Great friendly attentive staff with both a fine extensive local menu of foods and drinks. I can recommend the local Rhodes Vap beer, as I had to have a few on several visits to confirm this.

Took a break here for refreshments after the compulsory walk through the old town of Rhodes. Nice atmosphere amongst trees and plants. A bit pricey drinks. Ladies' room not very clean, men's room totally ok.

We'd visited Rhodes Town many times before and love the old town but this was the first time we'd noticed it and after a couple of hours exploring in the afternoon heat we were ready for a break and wandered into this magical garden where we felt like we'd been transported to a tropical paradise......with very friendly staff ......good food...
