Every month my wife and I try new places to eat. This month was my turn to pick and I came a cross Ben's and decided to try it. To my delight I can honestly say it is a great place to dine with a great atmosphere ,friendly staff and awesome food. Ben's is a place I would definitely recommend and will definitely be visiting there again soon.

Better Mauritian seafood curry than the ones I had in Mauritius itself! Full of prawns, calamari and mussels. The dish was excellent!

Expected a bit more, but the food was good. Steaks were okay. The onion rings were way to sweet but wasn't bad at all.Had a delicious lunch with my dad that day.His steak was more fat and sinew than meat.The manager gave him a new steak on the house.The mushroom sauce was extremely tasty and good and the veggies weren't bad at all.Steaks were rare as requested and very happy for that.Malva pudding could be a bit sweeter and a bit more cream for garnish..But overall was good. Glad I got to try out their straks finally before I left Cape Town.

I all most have Ben's a lower rating, the manager was great. We arrived without an invitation, and as Ben is known for steak, that was the obvious choice. I ordered the Kentucky Ribeye, with mushrooms and bacon bits. The cut of meat was a bit of a disappointment as it had a long strip of silver skin between the meat and fat (best part). The manager noticed the piece that I removed and replaces the steak. Although I did mention it not needed, the manager assured me that they do not accept such a bad cut of meat, and that he will prepare another steak (with sauce) for take away. For me, that is great services.Our waitress and was great and friendly. I will definitely recommend Ben on the Beach. We will be going back to give their Burgers a try

Good food. Not the usual steak and chips. Good wine list. Other alcohol served as well. Delicious deserts. Awesome view. Sometimes parking could be a problem.

Lovely restaurant in front of Strand Beach. Decent menu selection with a few daily specials as well. We waited some time to get service even though the restaurant was not full at all. We were also not given a drinks menu. The waitress memorized our orders but gave me the wrong drink and it was not cold. I have noticed though that a lot of restaurants in Strand do not give you ice cold drinks. Guess I have to start asking for ice from now on. I dont know who likes lukewarm cider though....The food was super delicious and very well presented. I will definitely return for the food!
