“Outstanding!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

Run by a local Greek family mum and dad in kitchen and two sons waiting such loverly people very welcoming! we ate here 6 nights out of 7!!!! They have such a variety on the menu from pasta pizza to chicken fish etc... I had something different every night and it was all amazing! Myself and my boyfriend love our food this is a typical greek restaurant, very quaint! They are very generous giving big portions not forgetting the free tasters they bring whilst you wait for your food to be cooked from Fresh! I highly recommend this restaurant to everyone you will not find many places like this around its a must try and if you like your food you will love this restaurant! We even bought some of there olive oil that they make at there own farm to bring home!!! Not to mention there local Red wine was the best I have tasted on average we spent 15Euros a night for the both of us and there was plenty to eat were always full 100% recommend this restaurant go check it out!

“Tsilivinos - wow!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

I suspect the reason for only 3 reviews is that the name of the restaurant on the search is not spelled correctly. Tsilivinos.

Anyway, this place is a wee gem. Family run, top notch traditional cooking from mum and dad and waiting and serving from the sons. They treat you like friends and go out of their way to give you a great evening in a big way. Such lovely people who work incredibly hard.
We were in Tsilivi for a week and ate in many great places but this is the one I wanted to leave a review about.
The prices are at the low end of the scale and there is also the chance that the family will bring you local dishes on the house to try. They go out of their way to give you a great night.
In our party we tried several dishes; home made pizza to die for, lemon chicken on the spit, spinach pies, homemade chips, chicken souvlaki, mixed souvlaki - all amazing!!!!!
Well worth a visit, you wont be disappointed!

“Thank you, Tsilivino!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 20, 2011 via mobile

Fantastic food provided here by these lovely family! Tasteful and rich flavored dishes from the grill and others. We were also given the free complimentary starters and desserts. Grilled feta chese was delicious. My husband had the grilled swordfish and I had the grilled shrimp. Came back the other day for our pre ordered grilled lobster! Delicious! Also, loved their moussaka! Everything is very good, even the french fries are better there. Not to be missed!

“A gem of a restaurant - you wont eat anywhere else!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2011

Tsilivino is a small tradionally Greek restaurant with food to die for. The Lamb on a Spit is the best dish in the world, we went back twice during our one week stay, had we discovered this restaurant sooner we would be back every day! The father is an excellent chef and the mother works so hard. The two sons who are waiters are warm, friendly and make you feel so welcome. We received complimentary starter & dessert on first visit and a carafe of wine on our second visit. It is inexpensive with professionally cooked food and fantastic hospitality. This restaurant has a friendly relaxed atmosphere. Thank you Tsilivino!

“Loved tsilivino”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 4, 2010

We normally never eat at the same restaurant twice when on holiday, but we made an exception here.
We were looking for the well advertised Sweet Revenge and this little family run taverna is next door.
It don't advertise as it don't need to.
The food is cooked in an open kitchen and is all cooked fresh. They give you lots of complimentary starters or desserts or maybe a 1/2 carafe of wine.
Mama, Dada and the two sons run it and would go back every night if back in Tsilivi..
The chicken stifado is to die for.
Give it a try when the season opens.
