We have eaten here twice and found the food enjoyable and the service friendly and helpful. We thoroughly enjoyed the live music on Saturday night. The restaurant has a relaxed rustic look which adds to the atmosphere.

The Bendito Desierto is top choice for lunch and dinner. Great meal, nice atmosphere, excellent staff and chef. Varied menu. And, if you´re luck, you will see live music. It was very hot outside and very fresh inside.

Not easy to find a good food address in San Pedro because it is really a tourist hot spot. But this restaurant we could recommend. Price-Value is ok and the dishes very delicious.

We went to Bendito a few nights ago after being enticed by the girl outside. Once in, we were totally neglected by the waiters - which is incredible given there were only 2 other couples. We ordered the vegetarian cannelloni which arrived 45 minutes later....More

We visited this resaurant as it was included at the end of a pre-paid tour. The starter was satisfactory but we both chose the pasta for the main course. It was one of the worst dishes of pasta we had ever eaten and virtually inedible...More

Ate here at end of a prepaid tour. Vegetable soup, chicken supreme and mashed potato, followed by creme caramel with a soft drink came for a decent 8000chile pesos, and was filling and reasonably tasty. Staff good.

Lunch here after the morning tour was great. Our friends had a set menu prepaid. I ordered ceviche which was the most expensive dish and did not regret it. Fresh seafood beautifully decorated with salad was a treat.

We were a large group so ordered a wide variety of food. The waitstaff was friendly, but had some trouble getting our order correct. Although the bread and salsa were good, and the mixed drinks were decent, the food was mediocre. Some of it was...More
