Service was excellent and the food superb. Started with a beef wagu tapas followed by barramundi fillet and finishing with an Affogato. Intimate surrounding due to its size; a hidden gem. Highly recommend you visit.

The restaurant is comfortable with a friendly atmosphere. The menu was simple with, for us, adequate choice. Prices were reasonable. Staff were friendly and the service was excellent. There were two seafood dishes as 'special'. I had one my partner the other. Both were excellent. We both enjoyed or experience.

A little neighbourhood gem. Friendly service and the menu is varied and food good. The coffee is also good. Kitchen is only small, so you would need a bit of patience and understanding if you were attending with a large group.

Restaurant was very busy so I would suggest to make a booking, Very cold day so it was lovely to walk into a warm environment. Friendly welcome and excellent service. We all enjoyed our meals, Barramundi Special which was Gluten Free, chicken toastie, pork belly and lamb salad and a glass of wine made our lunch an excellent experience. Would recommend and we will go back.

Staff very professional, my meal was not as good as last time, it was a Risotto, the chicken was dry, and it was quite salty in taste, Coffee was good, my friends meal of smashed Avocado, was up to the usual good standard. I will return, but not choose the Risotto that I have had at a previous visit, because it was ok only.

For my very 1st visit to Benson's Mt Waverley I found the food to be delicious and the staff to be friendly and accommodating. The atmosphere of the restaurant clean and welcoming and tables are well placed, not to close to others. Would be keen to visit again soon.

The staff were polite & made every effort to make sure our meal was enjoyable. The Mediterranean Lamb Salad & The Barramundi were delicious. The Passionfruit Brûlée was amazing the only improvement could have been the Sticky Date which was quite dense & doughy in texture. Enjoyable dinner overall.

A wonderful Suburban restaurant in Mt Waverley. Fantastic flavors and atmosphere, at prices you'd expect from a lessor restaurant. I've tried evening and breakfast meals, and both are wonderful. Well done Benson's...keep it up, as I will be back.

I went with a group of five. We all enjoyed our meals. There was a mistake with one main course order. To compensate that person was given a complimentary glass of wine as her meal then arrived ten minutes later than the rest of the group.

The menu has a tasty selection, Jaspers coffee which is always good and the setting was quiet, relaxed and comfortable. Definitely good for a weekday work lunch.

Food wasn't good. Not good flavours and far too many cheap items like kale or salad filled the plate. Eggs had no flavour, neither did the calamari and they mixed too many flavours trying to get dishes to look good on the plate, rather than taste delicious. 2 stars as the coffee was good. 0 stars for the food. We won't be going back.

Clean and Tidy, attentive staff but not overly, music could have been lower for easier conversation. Fixed menu but good size portions and quality excellent.
