On the positives the setting here is very pretty, however so are many other spots in the beautiful old town so it is absolutely not worth putting up with such rude service for. Our family have visited Rhodes frequently over the last 10 years and the service here is the worst I have ever experienced. From the moment we arrived... More

We came across this cafe/restaurant whilst exploring the back streets of Rhodes town. Quite a limited menu but the food was OK and not overly expensive. The waiters could have been a bit more attentive - we asked for a drink refill that never came. Lovely garden and surroundings and of course the ever present restaurant cats wanting to show... More

We wanted to have a peaceful drink while wandering through the beautiful Old Town of Rhodes and luckily spotted this place set back from the main drag. We spent a few hours sitting among the trees drinking local beer and spirits with Greek music playing unobtrusively in the background. Friendly service and good times.!

Beautiful place to sit and refresh. Quick professional service, and tasty fresh food. Sitting under trees next to water features and listening to Greek music. Perfect

This is the most wonderful spot in Rhodes. You sit, surrounded by palm trees and the most friendly staff you could possibly ask for. If you visit, you must order the lasagna - it is almost without comparison!

First time in Rhodes, no pushy staff roaming the entrance to pull customers in and you can see why. The garden setting is beautiful with friendly staff. Small water features central to the garden gives the place a very nice touch away from the busy street markets jsut outside the gate. Great secret escape!
