The Restaurant

Welcome to FLORA, the genuinely traditional tavern!

Step right in and experience the heartfelt hosting of this family-run, hospitable eatery, an ideal place to enjoy top-quality, mouth-watering local cuisine specialties in a relaxed and unpretentious ambience. FLORA is situated within 19km drive from Rhodes, right off the motorway connecting the capital city of our island to the town of Lindos, not far from Afandou. Originally launched in 1978 by Anthony and Flora, this tavern was radically renovated in 2006 by their son Michalis, seconded by his wife Emmanuela, both of them successful heirs to a long tradition in excellence, preparing first class dished using what best our land yields. 

Building on 35 years of experience and with much knowledge, skills and love for traditional Rhodian cuisine in our luggage, we are looking forward to acquainting you with the tastiest local snacks, the most touted classical dishes but also some quite original recipes we expect will delight you as much as they excite us! We consider our cuisine to be contributing to healthy dietary habits without ever compromising quality. To attain such goal, we had to lovingly revisit century-old recipes legated by our grandmothers, utilizing the invaluably healthy cooking practices of the past – which also led us to help preserve the local dietary culture!

The main ingredients of our recipes are such original Rhodian products as olive oil, meat taken form goats and sheep wild-grazing on the aromatic herbs of the hills around the island and a wide variety of bio-cultivated vegetables and greens either grown by our family or meticulously selected at the market. All this – plus our commitment to quality – are meant to compose a true cornucopia of flavors bound to remain imprinted on your memory forever!

The wide choice of meats, prepared on the grill, the casseroles cooked in our wood-burning stove, the salads, the starters and the traditional hand-kneaded bread….en passant by our tempting deserts, all this and more are there to lure you to try our table.

And what best opportunity to taste the world-famous Rhodian wines, produced from locally grown vines than to wash down a lavish meal?

Our premises are available for hire to host such social events as wedding and christening receptions, a large-scale business or social dinner or any other social event of sorts, at very affordable prices.

Let us organize your event with gusto and inspiration! Let us share in your effort to make every moment memorable!

There is a spacious car park area next to the premises.

Come to “FLORA”, the traditional Rhodian tavern, sit at our table and let yourself go on a bonanza of local specialties, composing a meal you are bound to remember forever!
