When organizing a trip we tend to arrange everything; from the big events to the small details. And then the food comes in. When it comes to restaurants in touristic destinations, we all have the same concern: end up eating in a total touristic one which serves this food that has nothing to do with the local tastes. Well, have no fear! We ‘got you covered and have for you 5 of the most loved restaurants among locals in Rhodes!
Starting off we could simply not miss the authentic Italian plates of Makkaroni. The restaurant is located about 4 km (about 2.5 miles) away from the city center. With its authentic Italian scents and raw materials to be transported from Italy, you should be more than happy to try it! The atmosphere is very friendly and warm and the Italian owners are making sure to serve their clients in the best way possible! Ultimately be sure to make a reservation or go earlier than planned because most of the time there is no table available. The prices are somewhat high but at the same time equivalent to the dishes’ quality.
Fresh fish, a variety of dishes and the atmosphere of a classic Greek summer are good reasons to urge you to select this tavern for your meal. The open-air tavern is oriented in Kalathos and 100 meters (328 feet) from the sea! There is also a beach bar, which is very close as well, about 20 meters (65 feet) from the tavern. The staff is always with a smile on their face and happy to serve you! The price range is between normal to a little high, thus it is all worth it.

3-Urban Burger Bar
One of the most professional and decent burger houses in Rhodes and you can find it in the very heart of the city! Urban Burger Bar offers a vast majority of burgers and many other side dishes. Let us talk about the menu for a second. It is more than informative as it explains which burgers are vegetarian, how spicy they are, how cooked the patty can be and so on. With regard to the service staff, they are absolutely friendly, professional and always keep an eye on you in case you need anything. Interestingly, Urban Burger Bar serves its food with gloves, so that the client’s hands will not get dirty. The prices are reasonable.
This tavern probably serves one of the best souvlaki in Rhodes, if not the best, and we are not even exaggerating. It is a well-known tavern for its meat; you will know it when you taste it! Except from its tasty souvlaki it serves great meat in the grill! Its prices are normal.
