    Taverna: The Old House: Paulo's place

    Taverna: Old House, Rhodes
    2 more images

    When we first came to Rhodes, Paulo worked behind the reception of the Hotel Oasis. He bought the land next door and opened his own bar/resteraunt. Over the years it has changed slightly, with the 'bar' part declining and the resteraunt prospering.
    It's not the cheapest Taverna around, but the food certainly is good and Paulo and his family are very friendly and helpful. So, if you're passing Afandou on the main road to Lindos, why not call in and pay them a visit.

    Favorite Dish: Stifado is my favorite.
    Pistachio, Muscles in Garlic Sauce, Souvlaki,
    some stuff with meat and peppers in that we can't remember the name of,
    Apple Pie, Yoghurt and Honey with nuts, mousakka, Giouvetsi, Lamb Chops, Salads.

    Paulo's cheesey balls are particularly nice..

    Flora's Taverna: Traditional Taverna

    Flora's Taverna
    1 more image

    When we first went to Rhodes, in 1983, Flora's was the only thing near the Hotel Oasis. I remember sitting inside on our first morning and it raining while my mum was eating egg and chips. Flora's has changed since then, it has had apartments built above and the interior has been re-done, the old corrigated iron roof over the outdoor seating area has been replaced with a new, larger one. Old plastic chairs and tables have given way to more modern ones and those plastic tablecloths that your arms used to stick to have gone, to be replaced by cloth. A grill-house has been built out side, where the Meat is prepared by Tony, who slowly disapears as the grill house fills with smoke. Flora still cooks the food as she always has, in a traditional way.

    Favorite Dish: Fried Aubergines are the greatest!
    Omelet, Mixed Grill, Lamn Chops, Souvlaki,

    Trees: Olives

    by Balam Written Feb 25, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Olive Trees

    I love Olives but unlike many fruits if you pick one off a tree to eat you will be disapointed as they have to be 'pickled' first.
    Olives ripen from green to black; the flesh encloses an oval stone and is the source of olive oil - the fruit stoned or stuffed is used as an appetiser and as a flavouring and ingredient in dishes. Originating in the East the Olive was consumed by both the ancient Egytians and Greeks and was spread in its cultivation to all Mediterranean regions by the Romans. More recently the low level of saturated fat has made the olive more popular as a healthy and tastier alternative to other vegetable oils.

    There are two basic types of olive green and black (ripe).

    Green olives are harvested before they ripen and treated with an alkali to reduce the bitterness the rinsed and pickled in brine.
    Black Olives are harvested when fully ripe and are not treated with alkali but are still pickled in brine.

    Alexandros: In Ixia

    by Maggies Written Dec 2, 2004

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    With the waiter in Alexandros

    There are many restaurants stretched along the main road going from Ixia to Rodos. Alexandros was the one that was always busy. First of all they were trying really hard to get you in (as in all other places) but once they get you in here you won't be disappointed. The stuff is very friendly, the prices are reasonable and the food is geart. The only problem is the stuff being rather slow (well, it was the only restaurant that was full) but I didn't really mind all. All in all I was on vacation and I wasn't in a hurry, just enjoying the dinner.

    All other restaurants were rather empty... as the place was generally very quiet. Many people blamed the Olimpics but I'm not sure if it was the real reason. I've heard that there are less and less people coming to Rhodes every year as the prices are rising and the standard is keeping the level low.

    Favorite Dish: Try all the greek specialties. I highly advise you taking the greek plata, moussaka or souvlaki. It's all very tasty here.

    Sea: Squid

    by Balam Written Feb 25, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Squid
    2 more images

    The squid is a mollusk related to the cuttlefish and octopus. It has ten tentacles, and like its cousin, the octopus, it also has a protective mechanism which releases a dark ink into the water when it senses danger.

    The meat is firm and white with a mild, slightly sweet and almost nutty flavor. The squid ranges from one inch in size up to eighty feet, but the most common size for eating is less than twelve inches.

    Although the tentacles are edible, the body is the prime section of meat which can be stuffed whole, cut into flat pieces, or sliced crosswise into perfect rings.

    Squid lends itself to just about every cooking method imaginable and is often eaten raw in sushi dishes. Squid is available fresh, canned, frozen, dried and pickled.

    Squid is also known as calamari, its Italian name. Since calamari seems to sound more palatable than squid, you'll most often see squid recipes listed as calamari on restaurant menus.

    The entrance in this restaurant situated in the centre of Faliraki Station is dominated by the big statue that represents one of the seven World Wonders.

    This is a symbol of the old history of the island, and a good name for the restaurant.

    Souvlaki

    by Balam Written Jun 24, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Although the origins of the gyros are lost in the mists of time, there is no doubt about the souvlaki. The souvlaki first appeared in ancient Greece, as proved by a recipe from that time. The dish was called “kandaulos” and combined grilled meat, pita, cheese and dill (Athenaeus, The Deipnosophists, 12, 516d).
    Many centuries later we find references to street vendors selling souvlakia with pita in Constantinople, the capital of Byzantium.

    The first souvlaki shops in Greece appeared in Livadia in 1951, selling souvlakia on a stick and gyros.
    Today souvlaki is available in souvlaki shops and restaurants in every Greek town and city. You can order it as a takeaway and of course you’ll always find it sold at canteens at street markets, on the beach or by the side of the road. At every festival there’s at least one vendor filling the air with the delicious smell of char-grilled souvlaki.

    Desserts

    by Balam Written Jun 26, 2008

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Greeks often eat their after dinner dessert at the pastry shop ( Zacharoplastio ) on the way home, Traditional tavernas rarely have a varied selection. Among the most popular are baklava ( a honey drenched flaky pastry with walnuts and almonds), loukoum (a doughnut like honey fritter), kataifi (a sort of shredded wheat filled with honey or syrup and chopped almonds), pitta me meli (honey cake), Galaktobouriko is a custard pie and don't forget the dairy shop (Galaktopolio) for the perfect sour sweet mixture of fresh yoghurt and honey.
    Or just some fruit, the best being peaches, apricots, grapes, melons and pomegranetes.
