Traditional Greek food, fresh and tasteful food. Ratings are the complete experience, so don't compare it with a hip Michelin restaurant.

We came in late for lunch, at around 16pm. The woner was very kind and available, we ate a greek salad, rosted veal if I remember correctly, french fries, cheese and tsatsiki. Everything was very good and we ended paying around 30€ for two persons. Good prices and good food without too many people.

Absolutely fabulous place. Welcomed like an old friend by the owner who told us they had been there for 40 years. We were guided on some real Greek food which was amazing. Kids were happy too, amongst the best Kalimari I've ever tried. On our second visit in two days we had a platter for two which was just incredible.... More

After negotiating the uneven pavements, erratic drivers, tourists shops and pushy touts, it's a real pleasure to find an authentic, relaxed restaurant, a little distance away from the bustling centre. This is an old building with a newer garden room at the rear. We went for lunch and liked it so much, we returned for a big fish dinner. The... More

Came to Kostas twice. Once in the evening and once in the afternoon. It seems to be the type of place where people return year after year. 'Home cooked' is the best way to describe it. Father & Son cooking and serving dishes with pride. Open kitchen where you can see the food being prepared & cooked. It's not in... More

We once again followed the recommendations of the TripAdvisor's contributors and found this place quite rustic but charming. We were welcomed by the owner himself (I guess it was him) who also cooked our food. What more do you want from a family-run place, good food and honest service. Thank you very much. The tables are situated on the first... More

Well-cooked local dishes in a nice spot outside of the old town. Authentic through and through; family run and with warm attentive service. Meatballs, Calamari and Honey Rum are among the must-orders. Long may Kostas continue!

If you are looking for a decent family restaurant, this is the place. Visited this place a few times during our trip. The owners are very friendly and they gave us a warm welcome. The food is very delicious. We tried things like the Fried Feta, Swordfish, Fried Kalamari, Souvlaki, Mousaka, Greek Salad. All very freshly made. Even the Greek... More

The restaurant is located in a quiet back alley of Rhodos town so you have to search a little for it. (no noise, no pushy people). Don't let the search scare you it's worth it. We very much enjoyed this place. It's very romantic like. It had Greek music, furniture and also the atmosphere is very Greek. The Greek hospitality... More
