Your walk passes along the waterfront and through the magnificent walled archway into the heart of ancient Rhodes, ending at the Hatzikelis Taverna. Upon arrival, you will be met by the friendly and enthusiastic family and staff, your hosts for the morning and luncheon. The spacious and open restaurant sits amongst the ruins, with bougainvillea blooming as it climbs the rocky walls of the ancient city.

    During your visit, your group will be treated to an insider’s look at how the restaurant sources fish and produce for their always fresh and seasonal menu. You'll be given a glass of ouzo, the anise-flavored Greek liqueur, as you are treated to a tour of the family kitchen. It is likely you will see whole fish being cooked over an open flame and salads being made from scratch for patrons.

The menu has been specially designed by your Culinary Arts Kitchen Chef along with the chefs of Hatzikelis to ensure you sample authentic Greek dishes, shared with you by a most generous and gregarious Greek family. Local Greek wine will be served with your lunch and you'll hear about how Greece is the birthplace of the grapevine.
