“It's been a while, glad I went back.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012

It has been years since I last visited Befanis, since my last visit there has been an extension to both the property and the menu, both are welcome additions.

We were here to celebrate a birthday with friends, 18 of us all in, the manager and staff were very helpful when it came to setting the evening up and on the night itself the service was prompt and the food was lovely. The new extension at the back of the property allows for a bit of privacy for larger parties and essentially keeps large crowds away from the couples and small groups in the front dinign area. It's set up nicely, ambience is relaxing and any request from the group was accomodated.

After this evening I will not be leaving it as long between visits, a very enjoyable evening.

“lovely restaurant, nice food, ok service.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2012

we dined here as a couple in august! we had made reservations the night before and our table was ready on arrival!we were seated at the very back of the restaurant it was quite busy so there was a nice bubbely atmosphere around! we opted for the early bird menu. i had the creyfish salad to start it was nice but i thought it was underseasoned and there was alot of corriander which i found to be very over powering. i had the pork for my main course - it was cooked well, nice and juicy, i had asked for the sauce on the side as it didnt sound too appetising ( i think it was dijon and tarregon cream sauce) and right i was! it really added nothing to the dish. it was great until then, we sat for another 20 minutes after finishing waiting and waiting for our plates to be cleared. i have a sweet tooth and really wanted a dessert. not untill i looked around and tried and tried to get the attention of a server were our plates cleared, eventually our desserts came but out tea and coffee wasnt served untill afterward. overall a nice experience but i wouldnt rush back!

“Always good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2012

I have eaten here many times and it is always good. Their Sunday lunch is exceptional with a great choice and always very tasty. Dinner is also excellent with great attention to detail. We usually choose a variety of tapas to start and having lived in Madrid for many years I would rate them very highly!
