‪Great experience, friendly owner who built whole place from scratch as serious educator on astronomy. Top cocktails too!‬
الأصدقاء • سبتمبر 2021
‪29/9/21

We three middle aged guys had seen enough of the sights of evening nighttime Faliraki and had noticed that we lived close to the number one attraction that us thus place.

I wanted to visit at 8pm after a day at the local Mantomata bay so phoned up to book our slot. On our returning quite late I phoned again to change the slot to 8:30. By the time we actually returned and had a quick snack we definitely were cutting it close given we had to walk the 700m, mostly up a steep hill, to get there. I walked fast ahead to get to buy the tickets at the desk at 8:15. Just about made it! My friends trailed behind but arrived in time to catch their breathe and have five minutes.

The only signposting to the cafe was at the high junction with the road from the Mandomata Beach, it would be good to have one at a junction lower down. Not everyone have smart phones.

I was warmly welcomed by the boss and Christina at the entrance. Simone (?) behind the bar who was taking the bookings was relaxed and happy to wait for my friends to arrive as I phoned to confirm they were making it up the hill. I decided not to buy any cocktails till after, another guest did though as he had been recently and recommended them to me.

The garden at night looked amazing with interpretation Displays and sundials everywhere amongst the aromatic herbs. At 8:30 the bell rang and we were summoned to the observatory along with about six other people all wearing masks.

Christine closed the door, gave us instructions not to touch the walls or the lenses and the show began. Suddenly it went dark red light and the walls moved... very odd and disorienting! The three telescope array moved around and lined up with the hatch, Christina pressed some buttons on a remote and a strong blue laser shot into the heavens...... a computer screen behind showed images from the Hubble telescope and others combined and enhanced of the area we were viewing. Christina started her presentation, a bit of time was required to adjust to her accent and she had a lot to say. Each of us took turns to view down the eyepiece at each view after rotating the telescope. I expected big close ups but saw small images of Saturn with its rings and Jupiter with its moons, all good though. Do not expect colourful images, especially nebullae as the stock images you see in media are computer generated enhancements. Mars though would be red, although it was below the horizon on our visit.

Christina took questions happily, as people took turns to view, and answered them all competently as she is a serious astronomer and is up with the latest findings and research. A video display outside in the garden showed the Perseverance Rover on Mars (we actually know the 'driver' and I have put them in touch with each other!).

Stergos is a great believer in spreading the astronomical world to the public and even hosts school classes in the winter, organising three hour long sessions with follow up work. He wants to inspire the next generation of star gazers.

There was no detailed horoscopy as this was science and not fiction experience (sorry I'm a scientist!).

After the talk we looked around the fabulous garden and had two rounds of his famous cocktails, the best we have had in Rhodes at good prices too! The two specials and planetary ones were unique and very well presented. They get through a lot of cinnamon sticks! We left at 10:38 to selfie pose by Apollo 11 astronauts and wend our way back down, appreciating the night view over Faliraki as we descended! A great and special evening out!‬

‪We went here for a date night on holiday and it did not disappoint amazing experience, lovely cocktails, beautiful view and very informative! My partner proposed at this location because it was so beautiful so will always hold a special place in our hearts! Also when the staff found out we got engaged they were so lovely and gave us a little goody bag and put a heart watermelon in our cocktails the little added touch made the evening that’s more special!‬

‪A lot of potential here - need more investment‬
سبتمبر 2021
‪The cafe is walkable from Faliraki around 20 mins. The admission charge covered the mini session. I enjoyed the experience but was left hankering for more information. The session was 20 mins and to be honest you could talk for hours on astronomy and the influence of Greek astronomers. They could do more about horoscopes and the various constellations etc. Overall good visit.‬

‪Wow!!‬
زوجان • سبتمبر 2021
‪Wow what an experience!! The staff were welcoming, we came about 45 mins before our booking so ordered cocktails and walked around the grounds reading all the facts and looking at the visuals. The actual telescope viewing was incredible, very informative and just mind blowing. We saw some clusters, Saturn and Jupiter and I can’t believe it only cost €8 euros each! Just brilliant, if you are heading to Rhodes, definitely squeeze the Astronomy Cafe into your trip!‬

‪Телескоп и бар‬
العائلة • سبتمبر 2021
‪Замечательный бар с необычным вкусными коктейлями с космической тематикой. В самый раз выпить такие перед походом на экскурсию к телескопу))) Главное приезжать +- во время заката, чтобы гарантированно успеть на сессию в обсерваторию (во время ковидных ограничений специально пускают поменьше народу за раз для большей безопасности). Экскурсия на английском, но очень понятная и интересная (билеты на нее заказываются в баре)‬
