At Rhodes, this crossroad of civilizations, the local cuisine has acquired elements from the three continents that surround the island. It has borrowed from Asia, Africa and Europe but is above all Mediterranean. These various elements were selected, filtered and finally re-invented with a very distinct local character.
Traditionally, the Rhodian table was rich in variety. This tradition continues until today. Foodies from all over the world have good reason to visit Rhodes as they have the chance to enjoy local specialties that brilliantly combine traditional and modern tastes.
