“Delicious meal with excellent service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Our family visited Corfu last week and stumbled upon this restaurant by chance. The service and meal was excellent. The complimentary pudding of greek yoghurt with Kidoni was a lovely touch. The owner didn't know the english equivalent of the fruit Kidoni, but I am now able to tell you that it was Quince, which is like a cross between an apple and pear. So now you will be able to tell your english visitors!

Dear Mrs Rosalind W,

Firstly, I would like to thank you for your kind words. My wife, who is the blonde lady that served you, still saying "Finallyyyy" from the moment that see saw your review. She was searching for months for the English name of kidoni. She thanks you a lot for this and is sending her regards to you and your all family.

Yours sincerely,

Grigoris A. Aronis

“Nice Greek Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Visited on our last day of the holiday, so I wanted to make sure we had something pleasant. Great food, service was fine. My children had a mountain of spaghetti bolognese. All good value. They even provided a traditional Greek desert involving yoghurt and fruit for nothing. Very impressed. Glad we found the restaurant down the side street from the front.

“Lovely Meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2012

We had a reallybnice meal here whilst holidaying in Benitses. Its just off the main street, near the bakerery. What lured us most was not being hassled to "look at my menu", "best food in town" etc etc - figure somewhere must be good if its busy without the need for hawkers out front! We had mousaka and greek meatballs for main course - beautifully cooked, the meat was so tender! My partner was a little disappounted the mousaka came with chips - surely this isnt traditionally greek? But guess everywhere has to cater for the tourist to survive. Nice place, clean (the toilets were spotless!) and good value. Oh and try the cheesecake....yum!

“Excellent food for less money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 4, 2012

Best restaurant in Benitses: friendly staff, solid greek and corfiot cuisine with fresh ingredients, you don't pay much: two adults and a 4 years old daughter, with starters, one fish plate, one meal plate and one pasta plate, wine and water for more or less 50 €. Excellent calamari, sofrito, brodeuto and the marinated anchovies.
