Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Excellent. Food, service and location all first rate. We ate here numerous times during our stay in Pefkos - we found it the best of the local restaurants that we tried. The location provides breathtaking views of the setting sun. The menu is excellent, the...food delicious and the staff couldn't do enough for us. We had a table booked on the night there was a wedding being held at the restaurant - even with the added demands put on the staff that night, we could not fault the service and food. We will be back.More

Lovely situated restaurant with beautiful views of the sea. Quiet and peaceful. Lovely food and wine and great service. Made to feel very welcome and no rush to finish drinks. They actively encouraged us to stay when the staff eat their supper and left us...alone to enjoy our wine without anyone else there. Book in advance as can be busy. We went after sunset but that is meant to be spectacular but it was equally as wonderful past sunset.More

This restaurant has the most amazing location to watch the sunset during dinner. It may be one of the slightly more expensive restaurants I visited on my stay, but to be honest, it is still very reasonable. Food is delicious, wine is wonderful, and cocktails...are served too obviously. It's very popular, so book ahead to get a sunset table. Lovely staff, no complaints here!!!More

Absolutely stunning location, overlooking the bay. Accessible through a pretty lane from our hotel or up steps from the beach. Entering the front of the restaurant is so pretty, walking under trees and grapevines. Recommend booking because this place is popular! Also tables along the...edge of the terrace are perfect for watching the sun set in the evening. The boss served our table and he was so lovely, looked like a film director, we had a good laugh and joke with him 😄 staff were so accommodating, we had not booked and our view was slightly obscured by a tree but they allowed us to move it slightly to a better position which was great! Food was exceptional, I had raw sea bream, if you like fish but the idea of eating raw is scary please just try it- BEAUTIFUL. These guys know their food 👌 mushroom starter was delightful, so many types and so tasty. Pasta cooked to perfection. Service second to none. Thank you 🙏More

Despite the restaurant being fully booked they were kind enough to set up a table for us, so booking is highly recommended. The setting is idyllic, overlooking the sea and mountains beyond, very romantic. Food quality is excellent, portions generous and wine list extensive. Yes...you pay for the setting but the service and food are fantastic and worth every penny. Would highly recommend, it’s away from the noisy bars and typically Greek which is exactly what we came for.More

What an amazing setting with some of the most authentic tasty Greek food we have had to date on this holiday to Rhodes. Personal view forget Lindos at night and head to Pefkos. This restaurant has stunning views from the garden restaurant, lovely staff and...great service accompanied by what appeared to be the owners joining in checking all was well. The pitta with white Taramasalata was divine along with cheese croquettes for starters. Youngest had whole Sea Bass filleted by the staff such great value as menu described as "fillet"... so much more. Two great pasta dishes one with vegetables the other with prawn and a tomato cream sauce. The pork fillet and grilled calamari were immense. All the desserts were lovely from pannacotta to yogurt to fruit salad and coconut ice cream. Thank you excellent food and well worth it.More

Most tables are facing the sea, we were in the pergola a little away from the main area, lunchtime. Beautiful setting and very good service
