“Excellent quality and prices, WOW”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2013

We passed this restaurant almost every night in 2009 never thinking to give it a try - big mistake that was. The food is amazing, ranging from pork and chicken on the spit to other traditional greek options including the usual seafood dishes. Parents do all the cooking and the two sons run the dining area.

The prices are also really low, which is surprising with the high quality of food.

It is a small restaurant and we found that on our return this year if you leave it to late a table may not be available.

If your looking for a traditional Greek restaurant, this is the best in town.

“family run, excellent quality and prices”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2013

This place is sooooo good. Momma and Poppa do all the cooking and their sons wait on you.
Gets very busy so may have to wait a while but the boys bring you out free starters whilst you wait which are delicious.
Cannot speak highly enough please visit you will love everything.

“Small is Beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2013

A marvellous family run restaurant serving spit roast and grilled meat,traditional oven dishes,fish and salads as well as a massive choice of starters.We normally like to try a new place every night but felt we had to return as it was so good and there were so many tempting dishes on offer.The first visit grilled bream and lamb on the spit followed courgette fritters and stuffed peppers,the fish was the best I had all holiday,chargrilled and succulently fresh and the lamb was melt in the mouth delicious.Second time we opted for a fish sharing plate of grilled bass,red mullet,swordfish,mussels octopus and anchovies,again all wonderfully fresh if a little overcooked,but still delicious.The warmth and friendliness of the owners is a joy,you feel like a friend the moment you enter and the pleasure they get from seeing smiling faces is obvious.Being fairly small service is efficient and personal and the atmosphere is relaxed.The restaurant is sandwiched between The Olive Garden & Sweet Revenge restaurants in the centre of the resort.Greek food at it's best!

“Excellent Value, friendly and good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2013

As a group of 4 adults and 4 children we were welcomed in with a free round of drinks and a tour of the kitchen. Starters came with a complimentary Feta stuffed peppers course.

The pitta meals with a variety of fillings were great for the kids and great value. The adult meals were of a high standard and very generous.

After diner the children were given free ice creams and the adults some water melon along with the very reasonable bill.

My only slight issue was the toilet, it could do with a good clean, but don't let this put you off!

“Tsilivino [Family Restaurant] .”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2013

This is a small place but a " huge find " for those who enjoy excellent home cooked traditional Greek food.
The other positive reviews have said it all for me, and they too, are just being truthful about their dining experience at Tsilivinos.
Tsilivinos is bijou, so if it's full "which, it normally is" I personally would wait or return a little later .
Most people like to "graze" in and around their chosen holiday resorts ,I do ! That's how you find little gems like this.However , l think it safe to say if you give it a try ,you won't be disappointed and you'll go back again . Kalo Orexi !
