11 of the Best Rhodes Restaurants, Cafes and Food Experiences

Rhodes is an anomaly in Greece. Although it lacks the romantic reputation of Cycladic destinations like Mykonos and Santorini, this Dodecanese island attracts more than a million visitors each year.

Rhodes has a food culture that embraces its storied history without ignoring modern gastronomy.

Travelers dine at Rhodes restaurants to sample local cuisine honed over centuries. We were no exception to this rule during our visit when we dined at some of the very best restaurants in Rhodes.
