We revisited Benikos during the first 2 weeks of September 2014, and were welcomed back as old friends. We ate here every evening as we loved the atmosphere and the food. Favourite dishes include the Greek roast chicken with lemon sauce, Beef Youvestsi, tuna pasta, and traditional English cod and chips. Towards the end of our holiday we pigged out... More

My partner and I went on holiday for the week but after discovering Benikos, chose to eat there multiple times. The service is very friendly and the food is lovely. I would highly suggest getting the muscles there, it has been a while since my holiday but i swear my partner still dreams of them.

Run by lovely people. Food excellent. Complimentary drinks given at end of meal. Only negative is that it has too many lights and therefore lacks a bit of ambiance. Apart from that we had a couple of great evenings.
