The fish tasted great and we enjoyed watching men untangle their fishing nets while we watched the sunset. So lovely!

The food was good, it might have been better if we ate it on site, but there was a man using an angle grinder to put a large hole in the cement floor during dinner time. The noise and flying cement debris was too much for us. So we took the food to go and it by the time we... More

Tha place was not busy at all; I had the best soup of the day and I am not crazy for soup. Nice steak, good wine and a cigar. If you like ''Turtles'' swimming in a small pool, here they have hundreds. The garden is beautiful but the sea and the beach it is NOT.

We were strolling the beach and happened across Bennys. What a surprise to find such a wonderful place with good food and a wonderful staff. We spend a few hours speaking with Benardo and his wife. What a pleasure it was, he is engaging, full of stories and a great host. The restaurant is right on the beach and has... More
