The Chef

An ultimate dining experience like no other

Benetos Matthaiou is the chef and co-owner of Benetos Restaurant. He was born and raised on the island of Patmos. Since childhood, he was interested in gardening, fishing and cooking, especially grilling the fresh fish he caught himself. His first teacher was his mother. He then became a cook in the Greek army. Upon finishing the army, he baked bread in a local bakery for several years. Benetos then began spending winters in Miami where he cooked in the restaurants of acclaimed chefs, including Michael Schwartz and Andrea Curto-Randazzo, gaining invaluable experience. In his own restaurant, Benetos uses a modern approach to classic Mediterranean cooking, utilizing the freshest local ingredients, including herbs and vegetables from his own garden..
