One of three sibling restaurants in the Melbourne area – the other two are in Belgrave and Mt Waverley – Benson's on Martin offers casual fine dining in welcoming premises along Martin Street in North Brighton, just off the Nepean Highway and close to Gardenvale station. The menu here showcases modern Australian cuisine, prepared with care in a kitchen committed to the traceability of the ingredients that make it into each and every dish. Besides superb a la carte dining, the focus here is on private functions and celebrations. To this end, Benson’s have renovated their premises to include The Front Room, seating up to ten, the larger Private Dining Room with views through 100-year-old windows to the courtyard, and The Courtyard itself, a semi-covered and intimate space for alfresco dining. With the main dining area appointed with banquet seating and mood lighting, Benson's on Martin is an intimate dining destination that rewards an advance booking.
Bensons is a great local gem and worth travelling to. Great food, reasonable prices, excellent house wines and stunning service. The tapas menu is highly recommended.
The food was fantastic. We ordered 5 different tapas and dessert. Everything tasted amazing. The staff were very friendly and the service was very quick. Would definitely go here again.
Every dish in our 7 course tapas dinner was delicious. Even the house Pinot (Mr Wolf) was great. This restaurant exceeded our expectations and we will be back. Highly recommend.
