We followed our noses.

A friend and I were on our way to a nearby pizzeria, when we got a whiff of this place. We decided to try it instead and were very happy. The menu is in Italian and English, which we found helpful.

We enjoyed BEFed twice during our stay. The chicken is excellent and the beer is very good. It would appear that this was a place the locals enjoyed which was also nice. It's a large place but the service was good.

This particular restaurant is unique in Mestre Italy and deserves a visit. Located in the Mestre marina district, this restaurant is extremely popular with the local families... great chicken skewer, oven roasted with roasted vegetables or potato fries makes a great meal for €12... a must-see if staying near Venice in the town of Mestre. Never a disappointing meal with... More

We had dinner at this restaurant while in Venice and the reviews are true. The chicken is absolutely fantastic. The only thing we did't like about this place is the limited parking. Aside from that I would recommend it for sure.

The Place looks pretty good. They have a good, fresh homemade beer. Monkey nuts are from the house and you throw the shells on the floor :). If you want to eat i recomand the house speciality 'chicken with fries'. its delicious!!

BEFeD is a place I would revisit again. Firstly the staff is so friendly even though they aren't the best english speakers. Also the menu isn't that big but everything looks simply delicious! We had ordered a starter to share and our mains with fries and we couldn't eat everything! I was so ashamed but the food was so much... More

food was good, however the service was atrociously terrible. Was told 'what' when asking for ketchup with my meal and annoyed on more occasions than I would like when looking for service.

Basically a bar with a micro brewery that also serves spit roast chicken and chips. Great place to visit and just a short walk from the NH Hotel in Mestre, Venice.

When we first walked in I wondered what the mess on the floor was . It was monkey nut shells.So you grab a handful and take them to your table. Eat the nuts and throw the shells on the floor. Very limited menu basically roast chicken chips and beer.The chicken comes on a plate but you eat with your fingers... More

What an unusual idea..eating in a restaurant with no cutlery, it was fun as were the monkey nuts which you cracked and threw the shells on the floor. To top it off they brewed their own beer too.Lovely staff.
