While visiting our friends in Gordons Bay over the weekend, we decided to have dinner at Ben's (02.10.210) a treat we always look forward to when in the area. The food was delicious, and the service was outstanding as well! Some of us ordered the...Schnitzel, while others selected the Mauritian Seafood Casserole, Tongue and my grandson ordered a Cheese Burger (which he usually doesn't finish, but devoured this one!) Our waitress, Shene was very efficient and friendly. Our friends told us about the Curry Special on Wednesdays, and as we were only leaving to go home on Thursday we decided to go back to Bens. Once again, Bens did not disappoint.....It was delicious, Curry & Rice, Roti, condiments, and a glass of wine included. Thanx Roshan and Michelle (very efficient manageress). We will definitely return on our next trip to Gordons Bay, keep up the good work.More

We visited for breakfast after a morning walk along Strand beach. Food was very good, hot and promptly served. Our table, by the window, was in an excellent position for watching people walking and exercising along the beachfront.

We had a group of 15 people and have been to Ben's many times as a group. This time the food was average but presentation poor. Not what it used to be like , overall comments from group , food below average, service was good.

This is such a great restaurant and their “Lockdown” menu is more than sufficient. I had the nicest steak I’ve had in many years. You will not be disappointed with the food and the service was impeccable.

Bens is just down the rad from where we stay for three months and we probably go there about 6 times during our stay. Why? Because the food is excellent, the waitresses are always hunour and enjoy a laugh with the customers. Good wholesome food...at a very acceptable cost. Best Pork Belly in the Western Cape !!More

The hostess was a little preoccupied (I choose to believe she wasn't rude) that seated us. Our waitress was brilliant - really good customer service and she deserves to be promoted. Ambiance great and view even better. Good food and drink - good time.

Overall the restaurant is beautiful and the service good . However, I was not impressed with the steak that was presented to me. It was a poor cut rump and a struggle to eat. On hindsight, I should have send it back.
