We have only drove through Messonghi but this year plan to stop for lunch, could anyone tell me what is actually behind the main street?

Do you mean in Messonghi or Benitses? If the former there really is only the one street, but Benitses goes back up the hill. The old village is very pretty, contains 2 main churches, and some more tavernas. From there you can walk up to the Victorian waterworks above the village.

Hi sorry I mean Benitsis, thank you WE are going to Messonghi but this time I want to have lunch & have a look round Benitsis as my hubby always says as we pass through "there will be nothing behind main street" he obviously wrong! I knew there must be more to it. Is it a steep walk to churches etc

No a gentle slope through the village- bit more of a climb up to the waterworks. There are several parts to the village, all with their own names and character.
The main street is actually the one going up through the village, the row of tavernas and bars originally fronted on the sea before the wall was built years ago to prevent flooding.
