We had a nice breakfast here and decided to go back for a meal later in the week due to the owner telling us what a fantastic range of food we could have. The choice of food was good, tasty and well served, typically Greek cuisine with smashing of plates etc, however on chatting to other Greeks we discovered the... More

A typical family-run Taverna. The food is standard Greek fare and very good quality. What separates this restaurant from the many others in Tsilivi is the friendliness of the owners and the atmosphere, complete with Zorbas dance and smashing crockery. Good fun for an evening.

We visited in August 2015, the staff are friendly and welcoming. The food is by far the best we tasted during our 14 day stay to Tsilivi.

My boyfriend and I visited Benikos twice during our week long stay - but had I tried it at the beginning it may have been many times more. Both the food and the atmosphere was exceptional. Each time we went we were given complimentary garlic bread on the house, and complimentary drinks to finish the meal - not just a... More

We went in over the course of 2 weeks a total of 3 times and everytime we were treated like family by the owners Becky and Nikos.The food was lovely,drinks were chilled which is a necessity for the climate of Greece.The first time myself,my mother and father went there we all shared a basket of bread which tasted so fresh...
