Kiotari has plenty of reasonably-priced tavernas, which deliver high-quality Greek dishes like souvlaki and kleftiko, as well as fantastic mezze meals for sharing. You can grab amazing steaks at Mourella, pizzas at Capi di Pizza and seafood at Lighthouse. Should you be hankering for something from home on your holidays to Rhodes, you can get an English breakfast at Gre Cafe.
Petalas gets the balance right between upmarket haute cuisine and more laid-back Mediterranean dishes. They have a really nice Mediterranean menu featuring many Greek classics as well as more international fare. There is a mix between seafood and meat, and a wide selection of wines.
They've got an interesting menu at Ipanema, with wonderful service and generosity with their portions. Consider getting the burger or the chicken, and of course as a cocktail bar, you'd be best served getting a cocktail too. If not a cocktail, try some of the best wine on Rhodes.
The thing you'll notice right away with La Strada is the stunning setting, as it sits right on the beach. The food doesn't disappoint either – it's truly delicious, whichever Greco-Mediterranean dishes you're after. You can try the seafood or the lighter options for lunch or dinner and dishes are priced normally considering the view.
La Mer Taverna is another great fish restaurant worth a try during your stay in Kiotari. It's a first-rate taverna offering an impressive choice of fish and seafood, and a good choice for lunch or dinner. Highly recommended are the chargrilled calamari and fresh fish like the swordfish, all with a Greek salad.
Gre Cafe is a nice relaxed cafe serving an assortment of food, from Greek fare to full English breakfasts. They also have a bar here if you fancy a drink or two. It's a good choice for breakfast or lunch with free Wi-Fi and big TVs for sport, and the low prices mean it won't break your budget on cheap holidays to Rhodes.
Last on the list is a real treat of a place for an ice cream at the end of your meal or when out and about. At Freddito they serve a vast selection of ice creams, many containing fresh fruit. This family-owned establishment also does pastries and coffee.
Stefano should be foremost in your thinking when you're looking for a place to eat out in Kiotari. Firstly there's a lovely view thanks to the restaurant's elevated position, and secondly the atmosphere is helped by the friendly and attentive staff. Most significantly though, is the food and its quality. Stefano has a small menu, but that doesn't stop it from including a good selection of seafood such as calamari, langoustines, mussels and octopus. Plus there are perfectly grilled meats like pork and beef.
If you fancy a slight change from the usual assortments on your holidays to Greece, then head to Capi di Pizza for some fantastically-fresh Italian-style pizza and other dishes. You should try the bread balls with garlic butter and tomato dip on the side, then take your pick from the selection of pizzas.
Mourella is a family-run restaurant looking over the sea serving high-quality Greek food. Consider the classic Greek dips with warm flatbreads to start, and a juicy steak for main. The restaurant itself is very clean and the service is high class.
Lighthouse is a good choice if you fancy seafood. They do great calamari, octopus and mussels and the fresh fish is also a safe bet. The restaurant is right by the sea too, so if you're eating lunch, you can combine it with a swim in the sea, although maybe not right after eating!
