Kostas is instead the classic Greek tavern: it offers a wide choice of typical dishes, such as the mix of grilled meat, kleftiko (baked lamb with potatoes) and the musaka of the house. Average prices.
In the New Town, one of the beating centers of the nightlife of Rhodes, you must visit the Tavern Ouzeri Koykos, on Nikiforou Mandilara Street. The tables are set up in the internal garden and on several terraces, offering an excellent choice of meat and fish meze (appetizers). Do not miss the baby squid, the saganaki, the zucchini balls, and the chicken or pork bekri meze. Low prices.
The Market of Rhodes, in the New Town is the kingdom of gyros and grilled meat, but you can also find salads, kebabs and street food in Greek version at low prices.
Tamam has one of the highest scores on Trip Advisor among the restaurants of Rhodes. Thanks to the traditional ingredients, the more than abundant portions, carefully prepared and a service always up to par. To recommend the eggplant and feta rolls, and for dessert the homemade vanilla ice cream, offered by the owner. Medium-high prices.
In Sofokleus street there is Nireas, maybe a little too touristic restaurant, but it’s worth it. The tables are under a suggestive pergola, the menu offers fresh fish dishes such as sea urchins, squid and other fish and a few choices of meat dishes. Excellent saganaki mussels, with a tomato sauce, feta cheese and Symi shrimps. For dessert lovers, baklava served with ice cream is a must. Medium-high prices.
Instead, if you want to get away from the crowds and enjoy all the charm of a seaside lunch, then take the bus to Ladiko beach in Faliraki (also known as Anthony Quinn Bay), and sit at the Ladiko Tavern, the only one on the beach, for an unrepeatable plate of Greek salad with fried squids. Low prices.
Not to be missed as the delicacies of the Tasos Tavern, in Kalithea, Tassos Beach: Greek salad, octopus and grilled sardines. Seafront.
