Visited Benikos toward end of holiday but wished we had gone earlier as the place was great, Becky and Nikos where a lovely genuine couple. Brilliant service and excellent food, the keftedakia starter was a meal in itself, kids loved their menu and first restaurant we went to that got empty plates all round.
