We are a family of 5 (2 adults and 3 kids under 9) and had a great time dining at Benito's on 12/04/17. Food was excellent. My husband had the BBQ ribs which were cooked to perfection, I had the seafood board and my 3 kids shared 2 of the Benito's fish and chips. The servings were generous, the meals... More

I am a big fan of ribs and honestly the ones I had at benito's belong in the top 5 easily. And that says something because I have tried a lot of ribs in my life :-) Great food and more than enough not to make you leave hungry. And if you still have room left after dinner I can... More

Dined at Benito's with my wife tonight. The restaurant was hosting a monthly Rotary meeting dinner and it was very evident that they were under-resourced for anyone else who happened to turn up. Service was poor and slow, and food was expensive and underwhelming. My wife and I both had steak, allegedly the specialty of the house, my wife a... More

I thought the venue was a bit noisy because of the timber floors , carpet would be a big help as well as feeling more cosy, bot I will return,... More

Five of us went to Benitos for dinner last week. Before I go to a restaurant, I read TripAdvisor reviews and look at their menu. Some reviews were great and some not happy. A number of reviews talked about long waits and mistakes with the meals. Frankly I was concerned. We all ordered a variety of salad dishes and shared... More

We went to Benito's last week- The Ribeye was so juicy and cooked perfectly We loved the chips- Beer battered crunchy with some dried herbs for added deliciousness. The seafood pasta is always a favourite- I will try something else next time- I probably won't though! We had the brownie- It was rich and better than Id hoped- We try... More

Amazing service with wonderful waitress and waiter. My grandson was given a pack of pencils stickers coloring in books upon arrival . Food was delivered promptly. It was delicious and nothing to fault. Was a very cosy warm inviting restaurant extremely happy all round. Will be back.
