The food here is superb, fresh fish caught daily. A memorable meal here was red snapper I enjoyed it thoroughly. I was presented with the full fish and when I had finished I told Nikos (the taverna owner with wife Becky) and he filleted it and got another portion out of it. Another good meal is the Greek seafood plate... More

We first visited Benikos a couple of years back when holidaying with our granddaughters. They can be really fussy eaters and that night was no exception. Plain pasta and Cheese were the meal of the day and Nikos and Becky were brilliant because that is what the girls got along with a mountain of garlic bread. We were Tsilivi again... More

We came across this restaurant at the latter end of our holiday in Tsilivi and what a gem it was. It is down one of the side streets away from the main road. There was nobody standing in the street trying to pressurise us into the restaurant just a nice lady with a smile who left us alone to browse... More

Spent two weeks in Tsilivi and ate at Benikos everyday. That says it all about the great food they serve and the fantastic service, Nikos and Becky and staff go that further mile to make sure that their customers enjoy their meal and nothing is too much of a problem. They cater for all, even my 14 month Grandson enjoyed... More

We ate the best souvlak and the most delicious sweet, the specific banoffee. Nikos, Becky and the staff are amazing people, very friendly and they treated us like we were part of their family. We hope that we can come back next year to feel again the amazing taste of Benikos's food. Best wishes from Romania!!

Ate at this restaurant a few times over the 2 weeks we spent in Zakynthos and each time the whole family enjoyed it. Even the fussy teenager. The food was lovely, with an excellent selection of both Greek & English foods on the menu. The staff were most welcoming and friendly - think it helps that 2 of the waitresses... More
