Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

From the welcome to the food and the sheer ambience- this place is a must go to. The restaurant is family run, and is just simply superb. The food is exceptional We came to the opening night, and although going home Saturday, will most definitely...come back again. Good company, good food and a very good timeMore

We decided to try Kostas Village Taverna as we had eaten at Casa Italia the night before (same owners) and been blown away by our meal there. This meal did not disappoint! Probably the best Greek food I’ve ever eaten. If you’re in the area...PLEASE try these 2 restaurants, you will not be disappointed!More

This place caught our eye because of its colourful decor and its greek feel. We decided to eat here on our first night of our holiday and as we arrived we were asked if we had a reservation. We didn’t, but we were still found...one of the best seats in the house and seated straight away. The service was attentive, the staff were so smiley and it made for such a wonderful night. The food was incredible too! So much so, we decided to return four days later this time with a reservation. The staff remembered us, shook our hands, told us it was great to see us again and this time we got THE best seat in the house. Right at the top of the stairs overlooking the restaurant, taking everything in. We both chose dolmades for starter which were the best I’ve ever had. And we both had a Greek main. I had Kleftiko which was undoubtedly one of the best meals I’ve ever had. The lamb was served on the bone and it just fell off like butter. The seasoning was phenomenal and it really gave that authentic Greek feel. As we were leaving, once again, all the staff were super friendly asking if they’d see us again and shaking our hands. Thank you, Kostas Village, for giving us two very memorable nights of our holiday.More

Probably some of the best food I’ve tried in Greece so far, had the grilled octopus myself and it was the most tender protein I’ve eaten in a long time. Service was incredibly friendly and a huge selection for picky eaters. Price was absolutely fair...and not too expensive an easy 5 stars, if you’re in the area swing by 110%!More

Whilst out for a walk my wife and I stopped in for lunch. we were met by the waiter Akis. He was so friendly and professional. The food and drink was absolutely superb. So that night we went back for dinner. Great choices for every...taste and lots of people in the restaurant. It was fantastic. We went back about four times! Definitely our favourite place for lunch or dinner! Thank you for looking after us Akis. See you next year!More

Me and my husband decided to visit here after reading good reviews. Unfortunately, I cannot say our experience was the same. We arrived and asked for a table in the no smoking area. We were told about 20 minute wait, so we went for a...quick drink and returned. We were shown to our table and ordered our drinks, they then returned to take our order. We order a starter and a main each. Nearly 1 hour later and having to ask where our starters were they arrived within a few minutes. We ate our starters and then not long after the mins arrived. I had ordered a chicken dish but when it arrived it was obvious it was beef. I waited to get the attention of the waiter and he said he would change it, after h checked his order he had taken and realised he had messed up. I stated I had already waited long enough and would have to eat around it. So I ate what I could and my husband started to eat his. When we asked for the bill and it arrived he said he would give us a ice cream for the mistake. I advised he needed to take the cost of the wrong meal off considering the mix up. This place just rams you in, the staff run round like headless chickens. I wouldn’t recommend here if you want an enjoyable experience and the meal you actually ordered. There are many restraunts that serve better food and reasonable prices and a more comfortable environment.More

This is a fantastic restaurant. The staff are very friendly. The food is authentic and amazing. They have an upstairs terrace which is lovely. Would thoroughly recommend. I would definitely recommend the Kleftico.

We have been visiting this amazing place for several years. The food is fantastic, especially their Kleftiko. But everything starts with their good service from the staff and the owner. We will visit them every time we hit Rhodes
