Rhodes Day 1

Early wake up - really early - at 2.45am!!!


Check-in started at 4am & the flight was scheduled at 6 but there was app. 1/2 hour delay because a group of surfers came along with their own surfing bords and it took a while to load them on board.



The Best Western Plaza hotel was a positive surprise! Room on the top floor, sea view over the top of Rhodes town, spacious corner room.
7, Ierou Lochou Street




Best Western Plaza

Walking on the Elli Beach in the new town before lunch.

Lunch at Mikes Seafood Taverna
2, Parados Socratous Str, Old Town

Horiatiki Salad
Tsatsiki with some bread seasoned with saffron
Grilled Dorado

Local white wine




- Couldn't be better!
- Place a little off from the main touristic area
- highly recommended!

Rhodes town looks quite nice. It's a mixture of locals and tourists, new and old.



Dinner at Symposium
Archelaou 3, Old Town

Horiatiki salad
Tsatsiki & bread
Cheese Saganaki
Dolmades

Grilled king prawns

Watermelon
Makedonikos Tsantali, Halkidiki white wine








- Restaurant was ok, service friendly
- Starters very tasty
- For the main course had to wait for an unusal long time and finally when it arrived the prawns were over-cooked and dry


Lots of people both locals and tourists walking around in the old town - nice athmosphere!

Saw also "Vävypojan Viinakauppa" - a Finnish liquire store!!!

  1. ruoka näyttää hyvältä. Paa vielä kuvia biitsiltä ja ravintoloista, niin pääsee tunnelmana täältä käsin :). Täällä kun 13 astetta ja tuntuu kovin kovin viileältä.
