The BEST restaurant in Zante to go, there is other good restaurants in Tsilivi but this one has beaten them all for us. We have been to Tsilivi 3 times and ate there every time on numerous occasions. We always get given the same nice spot to sit and get greeted fab every time. I would highly recommend this fab... 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.

Good restaurant with friendly staff. I was not happy with my choice of main course (my fault) and this was deducted from the bill and we were offered complimentary drinks. Attended a few days later for lunch which was most enjoyable. Reasonable prices and very good choice.

We visited Tsiliv october 2014, we have been many times to this resort and have found most of the restaurants are reasonably good but not outstanding. This year we stumbled upon Benikos restuarant and were met with a very friendly welcome. The atmosphere was relaxed, we did not feel pressured to enter or called out to from across the street...
