Karavelladika, Koskinou

Koskinou is a lovely little town that’s just South of Rhodes Town. Koskinou in itself is already worth driving to, to wander around in the little streets. But restaurant Karavelladika definitely makes the trip worth wile. We ordered several of their Mezze, most of which are vegetarian. We started with their homebaked bread and spreads like avocado dip, feta pepper spread and hummus. After that we had tasty Phyllo-Wrapped Baked Feta, Kolokithokeftedes (Zucchini Fritters), smoked aubergine and more.
They’re open from Wednesday to Saturday for dinner, and on Sundays for lunch.

ONO & Marouli, Rhodes Town

ONO & Marouli is a 100% vegetarian restaurant in Rhodos Town with many vegan options. Every dish is clearly marked vegetarian or vegan on their menu. They open at 9am for their breakfast menu with dishes like Shakshuka or vegan Nutella pancakes. After noon they’ve got their menu for the afternoon and evening with dishes like a vegan burger or an avocado veggie wrap with vegan mozzarella. They’ve also got several vegetarian and vegan dishes to share on the menu like Falafel, Cruncy Potatoes and vegan feta tomato flatbread. They’ve also got many gluten-free options at Ono & Marouli. They’re open from 9 am to 10:30 pm from Monday to Saturday.

Restaurant Pizanias, Rhodes Town

You might not expect a fish restaurant on my list of best vegetarian and vegan food on Rhodes, but I absolutely loved having lunch on the terrace of Pizanias in Rhodes Town that I’ve decided to add them to my list anyway. We ordered several vegetarian mezze like Tzatziki, Greek Salad and my absolute recommendation: Grilled Feta. The latter is a bowl of warm, melted feta seasoned with parika and herbs. It’s a prefect gooey spread to dip your bread in. Besides the food, the location of Pizanias is also a big plus. They’re located on a quite, little square in the middle of the Medieval old town in Rhodes.

Restaurant Calypso, Lindos

If you’re not staying in Lindos, this city is worth a visit! With its beautiful white houses and windey, cobblestoned streets and of course the Acropolis on top of the hill. One of my favorite restaurants in Lindos is Restaurant Calypso. You can sit on their rooftop terrace with views over the Lindos Acropolis. Here we ordered dishes like Greek Salad, feta cheese in phyllo dough and fried feta with honey and nuts. We also had two delicious vegetarian main dishes: Rhodian Matsi, a local hand made pasta with leek, spinach, cherry tomatoes and feta. And a vegetarian risotto.

T-Veg, Lindos

One of the best vegetarian and vegan lunch restaurants on Rhodes, Greece can be found at Lindos. At T-Veg you can order cold dishes like a vegan Greek salad or focaccia with vegan tuna. But they’ve also got warm dishes like vegan moussaka and Beetroot risotto with cream cheese, pinenuts and parsley. And they’ve also got tasty deserts like vegan Banoffee and vegan Tiramisu. Please note that heir menu changes regularly, so there’s no guarantee that they’ve got these dishes. T-Veg is open every day from 9am to 3pm. On Friday and Saturday evenings they’re also open for dinner, but only with a reservation.

Taverna Paraga, Apollona

Apollona in the center of the island is an area that’s mostly popular for hikes. But there are also some great vegetarian and vegan friendly food spots there! Like Taverna Paraga. They serve traditional dishes, that probably bring back childhood memories for locals. They work with seasonal and local greens and herbs. We also had several vegetarian and vegan mezze at Taverna Paraga. Their varieties of homemade bread, aubergine rolls, chickpea frittatas, the famous Greek stuffed vine leaves (dolmadakia) and white cheese wrapped in rustic phyllo.

Apolloniatisses, Apollona

If you’re in Apollona to visit Paraga, make sure to also make a stop at Apolloniatisses. It’s an agrotouristic co-op of the women of Apollona Village. The nine ladies bake all kinds of breads, cookies and pastries based on the recipes of their grandmothers. Everything is made by hand by the women in the bakery in Apollona. They also sell Melekouni; the traditional cookie from Rhodes made with local honey.
Want to try their bread and cookies but you’re not going to Apollona? They’ve also got a shop in Rhodes Town.

Farma Rhodes

Farma Rhodes is a petting zoo with a nice restaurant. It always surprises me when (petting) zoos have mainly meat on their menu, but luckily the dishes at the restaurant of Farma Rhodes are all vegetarian or vegan (with the exception of a few kids dishes). They serve omelets from the Ostrich eggs from their own farm, or go for their vegan burger for example.
