Just around the corner from the Suleiman Mosque this charming taverna is an airy, cool haven for drinks on a hot Rhodian day. Prices good, staff very friendly with excellent wifi. Highly recommended. Yamas!

I visited here 11 years ago and ate my first Greek food; everything since then is judged by the standard Rustico set. Eleven years later and their food is still amazing, full of flavour and good portion sizes. The Kleftico is truly exceptional and I'd...More

Nice restaurant in the old city. Touristic, but nice to seat in the yard and eat some local food. Low prices. Good place for quick lunch.

The spinach saganaki was the best of our meals. Everything else was good but this was a standout. Reasonable service with price being not cheap but not too expensive either. Worth trying if you are in the area but nothing to make it stand out...More

Picture yourself enjoying a traditional Greek meal, with a small vilage atmosphere, with lush greennery overhead, walls covered with rustc farrmer's toolsand handmade pottery throughou.. This is Rustico!The taverna is situated on the corner of Hippodamou and Sokratous street a junction as the streets were created on the hippodamio system (a city were the streets are in blocks). The area is elevated and there were no archeological findings when excavations were performed thus assuming that a small forest existed which is a characteristic of elevated areas of that time.In the first christianic and Byzantine period after continuous destructions of the ancient town by the Persian, Goths and the Arabs and the town’s forced shrinkage into the Byzantine city the forest park which was destroyed by the fires was now open fields which was left as such for defense purposes since the distance was not far from the existing Byzantine defense wall
