Continuing the tradition begun by his father in 1957, Yiannis Katsimprakis serves the very best seafood on Rhodes and speaks passionately of eating fish as though it's a lost art. Don't bother with the menu; just ask for suggestions, throw pecuniary cautions to the winds, and savor every bite, whether you choose caviar, mussels in wine, smoked eel, or sea urchins. He even cooks up porphyra, the mollusk yielding the famous purple dye of the Byzantine emperors. A side dish might be sautéed squash with wild glistrida (purslane), grown in the restaurant's own gardens.
Alexis 4 Seasons. If you visit during the off-season, try Katsimprakis's other restaurant, Alexis 4 Seasons, which is open year-round. Aristotelous 33, 85100. 22410/70522 or 22410/70523.
