We found this restaurant just but coincidence and it was, with no doubt, the best restaurant we have been to in Rhodes. Service is good, the atmosphere is very nice with small tables with candles in a quiet area. Food was very tasty. We had bread with two types of tapenade (awesome), Greek salad, fried squids, shrimps saganaki and souvlaki.... More

I went to Fotis for an early dinner, and was the first table occupied outside. Service was initially very attentive, but the waitress serving water couldn't answer my question about the menu. I ordered swordfish, a Greek salad, and a glass of wine. It was then I found out the water served on arrival wasn't complimentary! The salad was one... More

This restaurant has 2 sections, one new pizza and pasta, and another traditional Greek. Both are great, I had a wonderful seafood linguine for lunch, and had dinner twice in the Traditional Greek section. the staff provide outstanding service and remember you from previous visits. highly recommend this restaurant.

We found this restuarant by chance while walking in old town and It think it is one of the best restaurants in Rhodes. We ate sea food and especially stuffed calamari was perfect, it was juicy and tender. Everthing we ate was fresh and tasty. The service was also very good.

Me and my partner went to this great restaurant when looking for a nice romantic evening, and when we went off the the beaten track and down some side streets, we managed to find this beautifully situated restaurant that stuck out straight away with its splendid appearance. We had for starters meatballs which were out of this world, and an... More

A very good restaurant serving excellent food in a peaceful, picturesque area away from the main drag. We dined here twice and on each occasion the staff were prompt, courteous and very friendly, nothing was too much trouble. The tables outside in the courtyard are ideally positioned and we had two very memorable meals with very good fish at reasonable... More

Nice restaurant away from the busiest streets of old town. The staff was a been too few, so our waiter had to run his cheeks off, meaning service was a bit slow. The food was variable. From very good fish, to a undercooked meat dish. We got a couple of drinks as comp, which was nice. Overall a nice place... More
