Rhodes Cuisine

One of the highlights of travel is experiencing the culinary delights of a destination, and Rhodes is renowned for its tasty dining.

The island of Rhodes produces an eclectic array of dishes designed to appeal to the gourmet and would-be gourmet in all of us. Local cuisine has its roots in ancient traditions and uses fresh ingredients to ensure that each dish will appeal to your senses and satiate your appetite.

Rhodian dishes tend toward the savory side and can trace their roots to Dorian Rhodes. Sophist and rhetorician Athenaeus Nafkratios, notes in his book Deipnosofistai that ancient Rhodians were partial to fish soup and lauded those who "ate fish and not meat". Though meat was added to the menu in medieval times, and dishes include modern twists, traditional preparations and tastes prevail. Fresh vegetables, as well as local olive oils, herbs, and spices such as spearmint, rosemary, oregano, and thyme will tantalize your taste buds!
