We stayed at the nearby Atrium Platinum Resort but found the Spaghetti Marinara at the Restaurant Olympias to be the best meal we had during our 7 day stay. The variety of fresh sea food and the taste of this dish is something we'll long remember. A very simple road side establishment but well worth a visit for great food and superb value.

After reading the reviews we decided to have dinner at Olympias.

The food was poor.

We had the fried egg plant and greek meatballs as starters. The eggplant was bland and very greasy and the meatball appetizer was served with fries !?!?!!!
The main courses were the mixed grill and mixed Greek plate. My mixed grill was served with rice, no sauces, no garnishes, no garlic, very plain and the mixed plate was all red with tomato sauce. The only green on the entire place was the stuffed wine leaf.

Our meals looked very unappetizing and there was not a thing Greek and authentic about it.

Went here on our first night at our hotel (Atrium Platinum), it's a family run place and you'll get the warmest welcome in Rhodes !!!

A great selection of snacks, meals and they serve draught Mythos......................the owner saw us walking by the next night and invited us in for a free drink with him and his son.

We ate there most lunchtimes and the food was lovely, just had the one main meal which was faultless.

After calling in to see our friends Manos at Manos going tourist trips he asked us where we were eating tonight, we said that we fancied more Greek food but hadn't decided. He recommended Olympias which is next door and even wrote down want we should try. The food was excellent and very inexpensive we had Kleftokos (lamb meatballs) and pitta (home made and not like pitta you know) as a starter to share then lamb kleftedes and pork souvlaki and a Greek salad, small carraffe of wine (comes in a little clay jug) plus a beer and another single glass of wine and all it cost was 33 euros.

Dont be put of by the look of the taverna it's well established and good wholesome home cooked food, the menu is varied and they also do other cuisines such as pizza for example etc etc.

We ate here at lunch as it is just behind the hotel we are staying at.

We had pizza and spaghetti which were both good.

Good views of the sea and good service.

Only annoying thing was that the customers on the table next to us decided to smoke. But this seems to be the norm in Rhodes.
