I feel like all I do is write good reviews about Benitses , the locals here have outstanding customer service and are genuinely helpful NICE people! My partner and myself stumbled across this hidden gem when exploring the small town on Benitses. We at first...only came here for the pool as our accommodation did not offer one. We ordered a few beers from a very polite woman the first day. We decided to come back the next day. We ordered some beers and some cocktails. The Mojitos are AMAZING! Fresh mint picked from the plants right next to us. While sipping on our drinks , we received an email from our airlines explaining our flights have been cancelled. We panicked and noticed there was a computer in the bar. We got speaking to Jason, the owner of the restaurant and hotel. He offered his computer and printer for us to use. We explained we weren’t sure if we would be able to contact the owner of our apartments about staying another night. We explained where we were staying and Jason was able to get him on the phone and sort this all for us. He explained that he would help us if we were stuck and said “you will never be homeless or have to worry in Benitses” we felt so safe and reassured and looked after. We have honestly been treated so well here and I felt like It was fate we walked into Argo today. Thank you Jason! Love Kayti and Stacey.More

Every time we're in Benitses we come here for a meal. There were four of us and we all opted for the Beef Stifado as my wife had eaten it here before and recommended it. I have to say that it was probably the best...one that I've ever had and our friends both agreed. Sophia and Jason were very attentive and the fact that the restaurant was full in October is a great testament to how good it is. If you're ever in Benitses be sure to give this place a go.More

My husband and I stayed in Benitses for 11 nights, and we are so glad we discovered Argo - what a find! It's a peaceful, chilled-out, beautiful little piece of heaven in the middle of the Old Village, perfect for relaxation! We weren't staying at...Argo, but once we found it, we visited every day for drinks (including some wonderful cocktails, adorned with Jason's home-grown herbs), food (absolutely delicious, cooked by Anne), and to use the lovely, refreshing pool. This is the prettiest little restaurant run by the kindest, friendliest family you could wish to meet. They are so professional, and determined to make your experience wonderful. And although they work very, very hard, they always make time to chat with you. Argo was definitely one of the very best things about our stay in Corfu - I cannot recommend it highly enough. Thank you so much, Sophia, Jason and Anne! We will be back! XMore

What a fantastic family run restaurant. We had such a lovely lovely evening, lovely ambience, delicious food including tender lamb chops, chicken, village sausage and the best home made chips ever! Dessert made by our lovely waitress was a chocolate dish, so yummy, and her...mum made a orange filo cake, described by one of our group as a ‘food of the Gods’! , excellent cocktails and local house wine and friendly cats! Staff were very attentive and engaging. We had such a great night - highly recommend.More

Set down the quiet road to Benitses village Argo restaurant provides a perfect setting for dinner. Service is friendly and relaxed and the food excellent, special mention to the chicken souvlaki which was excellent and the belly pork. Comfortable seating with relaxing pool views, we...ate here twice and on the nights we ate elsewhere we came here for drinks before hand as it is is so peaceful and scenic.More

We are currently staying in Perama and got the bus into Benitses. We hadn’t researched any restaurants before arriving to the town but thought we would have a wander round to find somewhere for dinner. All of the restaurants on the main street all seemed...really samey, so decided to walk into the back streets. The restaurant is a 1 min walk from the bus stop so still very accessible. The food and drinks didn’t disappoint!! I had a strawberry mojito and it was fantastic. My mum and I, both had fillet steak with mash potato with pepper sauce. The steak was cooked to perfection and the mash potato was the best I’ve ever tasted. The views of the pool are lovely and make it so tranquil. Overall, we had such a nice evening! The restaurant has such a lovely atmosphere and the staff aren’t intrusive at all which made the restaurant experience so relaxing. We will definitely be back!More
