Nice and singular

Tasted overall the chicken and potatoes to eat with no cutlery. Good food preparation and nice taste (a little spicy, love it). Free peanuts and good beer.

We had the opportunity to go at lunch time and since it was very busy we had to wait to be seated. Seeing all those people (mainly engineers on their lunch break) we hoped we'd enjoy a decent meal. As soon as they served us our meals we knew the food was going to be nothing close to decent. The... More

BEFeD is new, big, and lots of fun. They brew their beer and raise chickens. You can order light or dark beer. It's good. Roast chicken and fries is the choice for food. Also good. One plate generously feeds two. You'll find people of all ages here, from children to grandparents. The atmosphere lends itself to feeling good. Traditionally you... More

A good experience in this lovely restaurant. The beer they produce is really delicious. The experience of drinking beer and eating monkey nuts while throwing the waste everywhere was one of a kind.

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.

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. Their specialty is their dry rubbed chicken. I got that and their Rossa Bock beer. Both were really good!... More

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!!
