A place to be in Valle Gran Rey. The fish is good and fresh and the staff is friendly. The prices are good.

And plenty of room. The fish soup was watery and it had more rice than fish. King prawns were pretty raw. Fresh fish was very good a bit on a raw side. Worth a visit.

Excellent meal - fresh fish, cooked well and very reasonable. Strange location should not put you off trying to find it.

Second Dinner at Casa Benjamin - best fish dishes at the island! Very funny and nice staff - always ask for the fish dish of the day and you will love it!

This definitely is not the place for a romantic candle light dinner; however, the fish is splendid and the portions are for a sportsman. If you mange to eat a "entrante" and then a main course, your are a strong eater! The house wine is OK, the mojo is great. Try "pulpo a la vinagreta" or "pulpo marinera"!

Wonderful sea food restaurant. At first it looks a bit like a cafe. Don't be deceived. It was packed - always a good sign - and the food was great. Not fantastically friendly service to start with but warmed up. We had a grilled sea food platter to share and couldn't finish it!

Casa Benjamin is popular and seemed to be crowded every night. Normally this is a good sign. The head waitor was friendly and service minded and we felt we were in good hands. We also established a common view about how the tuna should be cooked; he indicated this by his plat palm accompanied by a fsss sound, quickly turned... More

The best was the daily special for €7.95. This included soup or salad, main fish course and dessert. Four of us dined and the soup and salad were both very good and large portions. The fish portions were huge. Two large portions of fish, either wahoo or tuna plus Canarian Potatoes. Dessert was simple but good. Service suffered a bit... More

Tried Wreck Fish and Wahoo Fish both new to us! Cooked in the open kitchen, this place is very popular and rightly so. Excellent well cooked fish at a reasonable price. Yes it is like eating in the foyer of a brightly lit cafe but we really enjoyed the place. If you are looking for an excellent place to eat... More
