2 Best Bars in Symi, Rhodes and the Dodecanese

The Secret Garden

Fodor's choice
This café-bar hideaway along the road from Chorio to Pedi Bay is popular among locals. It was built by hand by local owners Katja and Michael, and feels every bit the leafy escape its name suggests. The menu is tasty, traditional fare, while Friday night sees live blue bands take over. It's a true hidden delight.


A rather stylish bar-eatery from the people behind the equally excellent Pantelis seafood restaurant on the haborfront. The slightly more removed location (just a two-minute walk from its sibling) serves it well, and food is delivered with equal aplomb. But this is as much a nightspot as a diner, and a fine cocktail list does the late-evening harbor views more than justice.
