The food here is always very tasty, the service is always very nice and they do a great job. We just wish the dining room had a little more space. This place always has people in it, and they always deliver quality food. Yummy!

I have had the pleasure of experiencing an eatery that actually cooks great Greek food. so difficult to find authentic Greek food in Connecticut . I have visited Cavos on several occasions and have not left dissapointed yet. I was especially pleased with their Easter Price fix menu of roast lamb and family size assortment of appetizers and side dishes.... More

You can drive by the building for years and never notice with all the noise on the Berlin Turnpike. Finally tried it after years of doing just that and was pleasantly surprised by what I found. More casual than what I imagined, they have pizza and Greek specialties, plus more standard choices. We had soup, skewers and pizza and they... More

I have been to Cavos several times and it never disappoints. The lemon chicken soup is awesome along with the warm garlic bread fresh out of the oven. The gyro plate is great and this visit I tried Aly's chicken which was delicious. The owner and waitstaff are always friendly. In my opinion Cavos is one of the best restaurants... More

We've been here several times and I've always gotten something different. Have yet to be disappointed! My husband however, will only try the gyros. Everything so far has been excellent and full of flavor. Portion sizes are large and the pricing is right on.

This is off the Berlin Turnpike, not a giant billboard or sign to let you know it's there. My friend & I have been there more than a few times & always excellent.

I'll try to be balanced...it's not awful...some things are actually very nice...it's certainly an extensive Greek menu plus pizza and grinders...and if this is your favorite go-to Friday night place, good for you. It does seem to be doing ok whenever I'm there. I wish I liked it better, for some reason....the people seem nice and earnest. I presume it's... More

Some of the best Greek food I've had in a while. Great selection of appetizers, main dishes and Greek specialties. Try the lemon chicken soup. Unbelievable! The gyro plate was excellent. Definitely will be back to sample the remainder of the menu.
