Our Story

Benetos Restaurant, owned by Benetos and Susan Matthaiou, opened in Patmos, Greece in the summer of 1997. The restaurant is located just outside Patmos’ town of Skala, on a quiet inlet known as Sapsila. The 14 tables are located on a spacious veranda overlooking the Aegean Sea, creating a relaxed, romantic atmosphere.

Benetos uses a modern approach to classic Mediterranean cooking, while also including some Asian-influenced dishes. The eclectic menu is a result of extensive traveling and sampling unique regional dishes throughout Europe and the United States. Emphasis is placed on utilizing the freshest ingredients including local fish, and fresh vegetables and herbs from our own organic garden, located in front of the restaurant.

Homemade bread and desserts are baked on the premises daily. We offer an extensive wine list consisting of the best wines available in Greece. Our service is attentive and friendly. The restaurant is open from June through September. We are only open for dinner and we close on Mondays. All major credit cards are accepted. Reservations are recommended and taken by phone: +30-22470-33089
