Mama Sofia's is in Rhodes old town where there are many Restaurants competing for business. We chose Mama Sofia's and did not regret the decision. We were greeted by friendly staff and given a glass of wine on the house. The owner is very passionate giving us the history of mama Sofia's and how particular he is about ensuring the... More

We always visit the gang at Mama Sofia's when we are in Rodos, this year we went two times. And we always have a splendid time with 1. class greek food & drinks, and the warm, skilled and generous staff at the restaurant. Try the Klefiko (lamb)! From entering to leaving we had a big smile at our faces. If... More

Came across this whilst walking round the old town, owned by Stephen and his family for 49 years. Nice food not so expensive as some others, well worth a visit

We find this restaurant according to trip advisor, but it was... More

Saw this on Trip. Decided to pay it a visit. I enjoyed a wonderful lunch, spoke with the owner, I think name was Stravos....great guy, made us feel at home. Had a wonderful lamb stew for lunch. If you are walking around town and see this place, take a seat, talk to the locals and enjoy.

This restaurant was always busy as we walked past so we thought that was a good sign!!! We weren't disappointed. The owner makes you very welcome and there is good attention to detail. The food was well presented, tasted good and the portion sizes were the largest we've had so far. Bonus that it's right next door to our favorite... More

My husband and I loved everything. From the complimentary glasses of wine to the complimentary pieces of dessert. The stuffed grilled calamari with feta cheese and tomato sauce, was more than good, and the grilled octopus was to die for. Not to mention the pittas with the sauces. Perfect food, perfect service, perfect place in the world.
