    Friendly staff, a delicious mezze platter and a glass of wine; what a great place to emerge from isolation.

    Delicious and fresh food. Attentive and friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. Would definately recommend it! We ordered the sweet potato chips, stuffed zucchini flowers, beef cheeks, duck breast and cauliflower/pumpkin salad which were all really tasty.

    Staff were welcoming and accommodating. Great service but the value of the food was not great, the portions were small despite the high price. Despite the Fork offers, the value is still overpriced.

    Between Christmas and New Year may be an unfair time to assess but our visit was a bit disappointing considering positive reports we had heard about Benson's. Menu is fairly limited and we had a mix-up over one order, although this was offset by a generous reduction in the bill. However, selected food was tasty and service pleasant. Decor is "cafe basic" and hard surfaces (with loud background music) would probably create some difficulties with conversation when the cafe is busy.

    Will return for family friendly delicious meals.... maybe without our toddler though ????. Great fresh food with very friendly staff. Kids meals generous and better than the average pub grub. Seafood paella full of fresh seafood and ragu pasta very tasty..

    The chef was accommodating, the food tasty and the waitress pleasant. Unfortunately, although wr had booked utilising the Fork offer of 30% off the food portion of the bill and were assured this had been calculated, on reflection I realized this had not taken place. Our drinks came to $10, our food (Lamb shanks, Beef ragu) to $53.40. 30% of 53.4 = 16 so the bill should have been $37.40+$10 ie. $47.40. Instead it came to $54, or around 15% off the food bill. Whether intentional or not, the end result was disappointing and unprofessional.
