Alexis Four Seasons Seafood Restaurant in Rhodes TownAlexis Four Seasons Seafood Restaurant

Alexis Four Seasons Seafood Restaurant

This has been one of the best fish restaurants on Rhodes for over 40 years now, and is still producing new recipes as well as simple fresh fish grilled to perfection. There’s a very laid-back atmosphere, a lovely location, and we still remember the meals we’ve had here. Their shrimp risotto which uses an ouzo sauce is amazing!

Hatzikelis

There’s a great Greek atmosphere in this friendly seafood taverna, which serves excellent fish dishes, good mezédhes (starters) and meat dishes too. It also has a good location in the Old Town. We always love fried calamari but here they add a cheese and mustard filling to the squid, and it’s even more delicious.

Kon Tiki

Opened in 1964, the Kon Tiki is still going strong and is hard to miss, floating in Mandraki Harbour and therefore giving you good views of the harbour and across to the Old Town. The cooking is excellent, predominantly Greek but with Pacific Rim influences, a much more interesting menu than it might first appear.
