After staying in the resort of tsilivi for the previous 2 years we decided to try Benikos this year after reading great reviews, I have to say I found our visit disappointing. The food was partly cold and the portion was not much bigger than the children's that my daughter had, on top of that it was rather bland. They... More

Our sincere apologies sir. Could I please ask what your dish was? There is normally a large difference between the childs portion and adults portion and as to it being bland then i definitely need to know which dish it was so that this problem can be rectified as soon as possible. I know it is an english rule to... More

- This tavern is in the center of Tsilivi - I would not really say that it is a "gourmet" taverna... In fact it is more like a normal taverna - Quality of food is not the best but not bad either - Prices are good for what you get (around 15-20 euros / person) - Menu choices are endless... More

I have to say that having eaten in at least 8 different restaurants in Tsilivi this is the only one that I was dissapointed in. I found the food quite tasteless which is unusual for Greek food. My husband had the mixed plate and he found the same. It was a little off that my starter was whisked away before... More

benikos, Owner at Benikos Greek Gourmet Taverna, responded to this review

We can only apologise for the fact your starter was removed before finishing. Our staff are trained to ask before removing plates and to wait for all plates to have been finished. What was your meal that you found tasteless? Our greek mixed plate is one of our most popular dishes so to hear that it was tasteless is a... More
