In search of real Greek food (not giros on the old town tourist trail) we were recommended To Steno by a local Greek family who eat there themselves. You get a warm welcome, a friendly explanation of the menu and how the Greek 'mezedes' style of eating works and really good food. It was so good we went back and ended up eating there 3 times! Stand outs for us were the Symi shrimps (small, headless fried shrimps where you eat the soft shells and all); deep-fried, battered, stuffed courgette flowers; mashed favas ( which are actually yellow split peas, not butter beans); and the fried small fish (a bit like whitebait). When you've eaten you're brought a complimentary plate of fresh local fruit (pieces of melons, peach, grapes) to finish off. They also do really good Greek coffee.
Order around 5 'plates' for 2 people (a couple of fish/meat and 3 sides/veg) and you'll be really well fed.
Including a half litre of house wine (local Rhodes CAIR wine - good stuff) we never managed to get the bill above 35 euros for 2 of us.
This was the best Greek food we found close to the old town - lovely atmosphere, friendly and helpful staff - and the place wasn't full of tourists.
We would recommend this place without reservation.

Aftner many visits to Greece, you discover a restaurant that serves authentic delicacies and marvel at your luck! Had to go back as it seems many have from brief conversations with neighbouring guests. This is a family owned and run restaurant that is not to be missed..try the zucchini flowers stuffed with feta.

Great traditional food. Stuffed zucchini leaves, retsina, horta and true Greek food. Nothing fancy, just delicious.

Very small restaurant with just a few tables in the heart of the old town. The restaurant can be somewhat hard to find...in a quiet Street but we enjoyed to be there

I liked very much the atmosphere. We visited the restaurant just one time and the quality was consistent.
In this lovely place must be tasted Greek salad, grilled octopus and cod fish. Home made red wine was ok.. Thanks Steno and his family.
