Good food at moderate prices. Eaten there 3 times, older decor could use a Reno. Friendly staff and good position.

The good: food quality couldn't be faulted; steaks, pizza, ribs, seafood and all at reasonable prices expected in a decent restaurant. Staff friendly and efficient but clearly down on numbers when we were there. The bad: cost of side dishes is outrageous, $8.50 for chips, $6.50 for sauteed potatoes of which we got 3 slices on the plate! Took almost... More

Took the PM Dept for high tea, and was not disappointed! A glass of champagne on arrival, sandwiches, cakes, scone jam, and cream. We all thoroughly enjoyed!!

About 80 people for a club booking. Alternate meals of atlantic salmon and roast pork fillet. Entree of seafood crepe or chicken in puff pastry. Both tasty and well presented. Service attentive and smiley. They coped well considering the large number. Well priced and will go there again in a smaller group next time.

Unless you were aware of Benito's you would be forgiven for just driving by this Mt Eliza Restaurant. Being local we too drove past without giving it to much thought, however one Sunday morning we decided to lunch out that day, so off down the Nepean Highway we motored, not really knowing where we would end up, approaching Benito's which...

We have previously enjoyed pasta nights at Benitos and actually gave high praise to a steak night. Last night however was a disappointment. My wife rang ahead to book and checked that the open fire would be alight. She was assured it would be and that he would aim to provide us with a table by the fire... On arriving... More

The meal was small, served warm with old reheated vegies and the bernaise sauce was a frozen block which didn't melt as the food was cold. the Entrée was not any better. No atmosphere as we were the only guests and that alone had the alarm bells ringing. We stopped at the main township and it was packed with people.
