Kostas himself cooked and served for us. He recommended the fish of the day, the superfresh seabass which didn't disapoint. Preceeded by the usual greek apetisers, the tsatsiki, the taramo salata, deepfried calamari, grilled squidd, fresh garlic bread and eggplant salad. All of it was yummy.

OK, you have to look for this restaurant, it is a little out of the range of the tourist traps; indeed, the "older" man comes with his smile, the interior is very simple, but clean and lean. Enjoy the ouzo. The food is fresh, honest. Today he was "alone", so he serves, he cooks because his son is in the... More

A little gem found purely by accident, plus a search for the best moussaka on Rhodes, we were not disappointed. I will start out by saying this is a small restaurant, turn up early or even better book a table, several people were either turned away or asked to return later whilst we were there. It didn't disappoint with regard... More

Fantastic starters of tziki, bread and feta with honey and sesame. Nice mains of stuffed squid and sausage with peppers and onions, and a huge slab of baklava to share - the bill was also very pleasant at less than 50 euro for 2 including tip.

We went to eat lunch at Kostas, the owner was the waiter, chef and the manager. The food was really good, the atmosphere was silent and nice, no need for WiFi, it was like enjoying a meal in an authentic Greek tavern, really worth going , if you enjoy local chef dishes. We wish it stays the same as it... More
