Called in here for a couple of drinks, reasonable prices although we didn't have anything to eat. Lovely surroundings and staff pleasant and not over bearing. Quite a busy little place but warm and friendly

Visited on recommendation. We weren't disappointed. Staff explained the menu to us and we're very efficient. Set on a side street in the old town. Nice setting. The food was good and easy enjoyed the evening.

We had the simply the best evening; fantastic food at very reasonable prices (seafood special at €9.99), honest, friendly and hospitable service, incredibly talented local musicians playing traditional Greek music - we wondered around for some time and when we landed at Rustico, we landed on our feet!

We first found this jewel in Rhodes old town two years ago . It was the only restaurant that was not hassling us to go in as in the square all they do is hassle. We went in just for a beer and ended up spending the afternoon chilling in its rustic surroundings. Friendly staff ,amazing food with fantastic value... More

Description
Picture yourself enjoying a traditional Greek meal, with a small vilage atmosphere, with lush greennery overhead, walls covered with rustc farrmer's toolsand handmade pottery throughou.. This is Rustico!The taverna is situated on the corner of Hippodamou and Sokratous street a junction as the streets were created on the hippodamio system (a city were the streets are in blocks). The area is elevated and there were no archeological findings when excavations were performed thus assuming that a small forest existed which is a characteristic of elevated areas of that time.In the first christianic and Byzantine period after continuous destructions of the ancient town by the Persian, Goths and the Arabs and the town’s forced shrinkage into the Byzantine city the forest park which was destroyed by the fires was now open fields which was left as such for defense purposes since the distance was not far from the existing Byzantine defense wall
