THE ANIXIS TAVERNA IS ONE OF THE FINEST I HAVE EVER VISITED IN GREECE.

THE STUFFED CHICKEN ANIXIS IS TO DIE FOR,A MASSIVE PORTION.

This restaurant belongs to the Ioannidis group of hotels and is situated in the village of Pefkos off the main road close to Island Blue hotel.Once a week the restaurant puts on a Greek night which consists of Greek dancers,accompanied by a bouzouki player.A large buffet ,consisting of Greek dishes and desserts is available for 17 euros each,which is excellent value.A fun evening with great food and friendly staff.
Although this restaurant is a short distance (10 minute walk) out of Pefkos on the road to Lardos it is well worth the effort.Greek owned and run this place offers great food,friendly service and a nice atmosphere.Also well worth coming here for a pre dinner drink as the sun sets.
Favorite Dish: The fried Halumi cheese followed by the fish platter,more than enough to satisfy any appetite.
A most pleasant place for a stop on the way up or down from the Acropolis in Lindos village.The bar is situated in shaded area with pretty flowers and plants and offers great views across Lindos Bay.Comfortable seating with large cushions.
This restaurant has possibly the best sea views in Pefkos and an excellent place to watch the sunset.Ate here on several occasions for lunch and dinner,service was good with welcoming and friendly staff.Good selection of food with several Greek dishes,although did find that the food was slightly more expensive than other restaurants,but this was compensated for by the lovely position.
Favorite Dish: The really nice main course of Kefliko followed by an amazing chocolate souffle with ice cream.
As this was the no.1 restaurant in Pefkos,we decided to give it a try, and we were not disappointed.Tables are set outside in a pleasant surrounding.This restaurant is owned and run by a Greek family, the service and menu were excellent and the price reasonable.All of the waiters were friendly and had time to talk,despite them being busy.Enjoyed it so much returned again!
Favorite Dish: The Greek Platter was excellent,this consisted of portions of Moussaka,Stuffed vine leaves,Stiffado,Dolmades and chicken.Good selection of desserts available.
After 5 years Symposio Restaurant is owned again by his original Owner Filimonas Lampis. In Symposio Restaurant you can find unique delicious daily fresh foods
Favorite Dish: Prawn with white Chocolate and champagne sauce
# Pefki town or village is just seasonal holiday place in Island of Rhodes
# Really relaxingly place with restaurants and things to after beach day
# Beside the main road of Pefkos located everything you ll need to eat, buy, dance to look around, etc.
So here you ll find also nice Greek style restaurant ...Hellas restaurant
Favorite Dish: Sure choice of my taste is Greek "Moussaka".
If you like baked aubergines, potatoes, minced meat with cream, cheese,Greek spices and prepared baked...youl like moussaka.
So I took this and I dint disappointed. Started I had bruschetta ( I am not what my Italian friends would said from this bruschetta)-
I have to recommend also the house white wine which was served in right cool temperature.
Also to my dinner drinks was; water, ouzo, coffee and cup of local brandy (good).
Service was really good and taken care of me.
If I would had companies this could be our choice. Especially with ladies.
'Mimakos' is a great, unique restaurant that sits right on top of a circular mound. As you ascend the hill, you pass a large car parking area with a small church and, for some reason, the turret of a tank. Keep going up the hill and you will find the restaurant. It does have a car park next to it, so dont make the mistake of parking half way up and walkin the rest of the way!
The food here was a set thing from the bbq and cost us about €12 each and it was really worth it! the waitress seemed to bring us a never ending supply of plates filled with all different things. From basic BBQ stuff like chicken, lamb and pork, to other greek dishes such as Saganaki (fried cheese), cheese balls, mushrooms in cheese, mousakka and greek salad, to name but a few.
The restaurant is always popular with the local Greeks, which is always a good sign as you can tell, if the locals go there, it must be good!
Favorite Dish: It is impossible to pick a best dish from here, as everything was delicious! However the pork gyros-type-thing with peppers and onion was really nice, as were the cheese balls (although when you are the only person that really likes them they can get a bit sickly)
This is a fantastic traditional restaurant situated on a hilltop overlooking some great olive groves which lead down to the deep Azure meditterranean sea. The seating area here is huge with plenty of space for dancing on the Greek nights which are held here every Tuesday night. We called in here after a great morning at Kalithea Spa. There is a large car park just below the restaurant and limited parking right next to the entrance at the top. We stopped off in the lower car park to investigate an old tank which was in the corner and a fantastic little chapel which seemed to be perched in the middle of nowhere.
The food here was very good indeed. We were offered a set menu for 10 Euros which consisted of enough greek food to sink a battle ship. We also opted for a selection of greek meats which were delicious.... we realised later these were not included in the 10 Euro's offer. We ate and ate this delicious food whilst enjoying the wonderful panoramic views. I would love to visit here on a Tuesday evening for the Greek night when they have traditional Greek dancers from Rhodes whith a live Orchestra.
The restaurant is open from 13:00 until late.
The Kontiki is by far the poshest restaurant on Rhodes, maybe even in Greece. Floating in Mandraki Harbour, the Kontiki is an absaloute gem.
However I msut say that it has recently been renovated, and now looks much more modern, and it has lost some of its distinctive and characteristic charm. It is now on two floors, with the restaurant on the 'ground' floor and a bar on the upper deck. On our last visit we only had a drink in the up-stairs bar, but I ahve eaten here several times in the past before the renovations and can honestly say the food was brilliant.
If your budget is on your side, the Kontiki is definately worth a visit and who knows, you may be dining with pop-stars, movie-stars, and even Royalty has been known to stop by!
The Kontiki offers spectacular views of the Palace of the Grand Masters, the New Market, the Windmills, the Fort of St Nicholas and the Stag and Deer guarding the entrance to Mandraki Harbour.
Favorite Dish: As I have not eaten here in quite some time I can't say what my favourite dish would be from what is on offer now, however this is the first place where I ever had Swordfish and it was delicious, so if it is still on there I would go for that!
Although it is mainly seafood, there is a selection of Chicken and Meat dishes.
The Neon Bar is possibly the best bar/cafe in Afandou. Now situated just off the main square, having moved about 70 feet within the last 12 months from the square itself, the service here from the staff is fantastic, you really will not find a more friendly place in Afandou.
This bar has been a favourite of my family since they first visited rhodes in 1983. Its recent move is largely due to the unscrupulous characters running the bar next door, who got very jealous of the amount of business the Neon bar was getting and began to make life very difficult for them.
I have eaten here a couple of times and can tell you that the food is of a very high standard. If we do go out into the village and do not eat here, you can't beat calling in after for post-dinner drinks and one of their amazing crepe suzzettes!
This bar is definately worth a visit if you pass through Afandou, you will not regret it!
Note: The picture is of the Neon bar at its former location, the current bar is located 70 yards to the left
Favorite Dish: The Crepe Suzettes are definately the best thing on offer here, but all the food is lovely!
Gyros is traditionally made of pork but in recent years chicken gyros has appeared, thanks to its low fat content.
Recently the doner kebab has also shown up, made of mixed lamb and beef mince.
In the Greek gyros, the pita bread is not cut open to insert the meat and vegetables Greek Pita is more like a thin flat bread.
There is also the version in half a small loaf of bread with the centre removed, which is basted and grilled like pita bread.
In northern Greece gyros is served with mustard or ketchup instead of yoghourt. In Athens, gyros does not include chips.
Make your own:
This is probably the best way of enjoying a healthier gyros with quality ingredients. Ready-made pita bread is sold in all major supermarkets and pork is readily available. Recently, special herb and spice mixtures for gyros have come on the market, although oregano, salt, pepper and cumin are found in every home. The recipe below is just one of the many variations you can try. With a bit of imagination and experimentation you can create your own perfect gyros recipe.
Cut the meat into narrow, thin strips and marinade it in a little vinegar. Add a dash of oregano and cumin if you like the flavour. Defrost the pita bread, slice the tomato and onion thinly and fry the chips. You’ll also need some yoghourt, tzatziki, mustard or whatever else you want to spread on the pita.
When the meat is ready, cook it on the grill along with the pitas. Spread your chosen sauce on the pitas and add the meat, tomato and onion. The chips can go in the pita too or be served separately on the plate. The second option makes it easier to wrap the pita as it won’t be too full.
