Midweek early evening meal out. Not to busy that you cant just turn up but for later evening slot i would assume you would need to book to be on the safe side. Rustic charm to the main area of the restaurant which i believe was once an old fire station so im told. Rest rooms are up the main... More

We booked a table at Cafe Bencotto for New Year's Day, based on Tripadvisor recommendations and we were not disappointed! The service was attentive but not in our faces, the menu was varied, the food was great! Couldn't have asked for a better location to meet up with family and friends. Would highly recommend this restaurant!

Seems our lunch was cooked by a trainee , all the ingredients were there but not really that nice , boiled mushrooms and pancetta with penne is not that good and could not be saved by copious Parmesan. And my own added seasoning. On the upside , service was charming and prices reasonable .

Bencottos has been a favourite for a while now. Food and service consistently good. Good selection on (mostly) Italian food with some others such as Greek dishes and usually something different to try from the specials menu. Or you could just have an old standard or a pizza. Good selection of wines at both ends of the price range. Just... More

We always enjoy lunch here as it is friendly, has a nice atmosphere and the food is always that little bit different and unique. Some may think its too quirky but it makes a great change to have original ingredients presented in an imaginative way. The only comment I would say on the negative side is that the pasta dishes...

We only had a short amount of time to spend in Felixstowe sadly, and as it was my husband's birthday, I wanted to pick a good place for lunch. Cafe Bencotto impressed us on arrival by its chic and impeccably kept appearance. The ladies who served us were so friendly and welcoming, going as far as to bring my 15-month-old... More
