We really liked this restaurant. Initially we opted for an outside table for two but felt a little cramped with all the tourists passing by. There wasn't another table for two so we went inside the restaurant proper and what a beautiful place it is too.

Our waiter was very friendly (I think the Greeks are some of the friendliest people I've ever met). We asked for specific meals from the menu and the waiter made further suggestions: Garlic Bread (hound's breath) and Tzatziki. Other TA posters have suggested that waiters have tried to increase the volume of food just to make the bill higher. I strongly disagree, certainly in our case, the guy made sensible suggestions which enhanced our visit.

We ordered two half litres of beer. I told the waiter I didn't want beer from outside the country. Initially I was disappointed when they waiter brought the beer in bottles as I always opt for draught beer. However in this case the beer was delicious and true to Mzungu's way we ordered a couple more.

Loved the place. We've already booked to return to Rhodes next year and this will be our first port of call in Rhodes Town

Having asked a local shop keeper for a recommendation we were sent to Niki's place and were we happy to have been sent there!

The food was excellent; the seafood fresh, the meat tender, and the salads crisp! Add to that great friendly staff and a lovingly decorated dining room and we had a splendid dining experience! You haven't been yet? Go! At once! We are sure to be back!

Lived up to its reputation for friendly service and amazing food. We had bream butterflied and grilled to perfection, served with a butter, parsley and lime sauce as well as an assortment of vegetarian specialities, with crispy homemade pita bread and creamy tzatziki to start, white wine to accompany.
Sat outside enjoying the late October sunshine but the interior with its arched ceilings would be comfortable in the off season.

I'm sorry we didn't find this resturant until, the last day of our week.
Very tasty food. We took the greek plate for two and we enjoyed every dish.
The only resturant that felt really genuin of those we visit during our week.
The complimentary cake and ice cream was also very tasty, but we was to full, eating to mutch to enjoy it fully. Efcharisto!

We ordered a greek sampler platter for two. The souvlaki in it was not very good, we sent it back. They added 2 orders of pita and charged us for it, though we did not order it and almost did not eat it. There was no apology or compensation for the souvlaki, but they brought us some mediocre kind of cake "on the house" which we absolutely did not need, since we only finished half of the platter.
We definitely will not go there again.
