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.
Great tapas, a variety, good atmosphere, friendly staff, nice paella
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.
Had a scoopon breakfast voucher. The waiter who greeted us was not very friendly and did not make us feel welcome. Once seated he asked us if we wanted a juice. We asked if we could have coffee instead. He said that was not part of the scoopon deal but he could substitute the juice for coffee. I rechecked the deal on line and it quite clearly stated that the deal was for brakfast for two with coffee or tea. We had the vegetarian brakfast which they kindly changed the poached for scrambled. Was average. Toast was not included. Coffee was very good. Although the waiter's attitude improved, we will not be going again. We felt awkward and uncomfortable for having the scoopon voucher. If a business does want people to use these vouchers, don't offer them.
Cosy atmosphere but food was dissapointing. Cheese balls were cold inside. I expected the pulled pork to be tender and full of flavour but instead it was stringy and hard .
Staff really weren't on the ball and they took quite some time to work out our booking. We were quite confused in the end. We opted for selecting entres and mains and although the food was tasty maybe if we went again we would choose the tapas menu.
Benson's has some of the best food (Tapas) in Melbourne and has remained undiscovered. You can always get a table, the service is outstanding and the food is worth the money. Moderately expensive, the house wine is good value. And the rest of the menu contains great combinations and choice ingredients. Go before the crowds discover this place.
We had been for lunch and coffee several times so met friends for a casual dinner we all enjoyed the food and it was humming with almost every table occupied. Great to see!
Very tasty food and well presented. Worth a visit. Bensons have delicious tasting food, service is great with staff friendly and accommodating. We had a terrific lunch.
