Friendly but very busy restaurant. We visited because lots of people were always in there but we were a bit disappointed. Our meal (2 courses) was very rushed and not a great standard compared to other restaurants /tavernas we had visited . I had a mixed seafood dish which was very dry and overcooked. Our other dishes were ok but... More

We've been returning to this restaurant after four years and the quality is the same as before. We like traditional Greek cuisine and Benikos Taverna is a good match for us. My favorite is "spicy cream cheese" with pita bread. Garlic bread, potato chips, tzatziki, village sausage, Greek salad they all were great. The stuff is very friendly and treat... More
