Fantastic friendly service as usual. This wasn’t our first time going for brunch and it definitely won’t be last. A great location near Puffing Billy.

4 different breakfast selections and 4 satisfied guests. The service was attentive and nothing was too much trouble either for us or for the doggy with guest outside. Our waitress had the most lovely smile and friendly manner which certainly added to our experience.

As always our food was delicious and the service without fault. Bensons is in a great position to watch the passing traffic as you relax with your meal and a glass of wine. Always our favourite local restaurant for a special evening.

The food was very yummy, the staff were very helpful and the meals came out without waiting too long. A lovely atmosphere. we come each year before our retreat at the Belgrave convention Lodge and they cope well with a group of 10 or so. As far as noise we were the ones chatting a lot and being early there weren't many there, but the noise doesn't seem to echo so still fairly quiet.

The staff were very friendly and sweet, courteous, obliging and always smiling. Even took the time and effort to engaged in a friendly conversation. Food was very nice and of reasonably proportion. It was DEFINITELY a great value for money with the Groupon deal. i would definitely go back to try the other items on their menu

Fantastic food, nice staff, didn't give full marks as split system in front of us was not working properly and it was like being in a sauna. I like the warmth l, but the boys were too hot as it was blowing on them. Otherwise happy with the fine dining.

The service and food was good.We were surprised that we were told at 9.00 that chef had gone home and the coffee facility would be no longer available. The web site says open till late well 9,00 is not really late

very pleasant ambience and great dishes for the kids. Nice alcohol selection too, and the chicken was delicious. My husband's steak was exactly what he ordered too, which can be rare to find.
