Extremely slow service but paella was lovely. Had anjovis salad for starters. Little bit pricy. Also had a €12 menu mon-fri.

Looks nice and seating in the street at the back of the restaurant was atmospheric but food was average and service was very poor - felt that they gave up on us after a while and didn't bother to bring out drinks that had been ordered. We don't speak Spanish well but tried our best. None of staff we dealt... More

Best option for lunch or dinner in Benicassim. A lot of dishes to choose from: pizza, fresh pasta, rice, seafood and meat. Tasty food and a nice place.

Second visit to this restaurant after coming here 4 years ago and we weren't disappointed. Friendly service and welcoming to English people with a menu in full English (always comical to see some of their translations). A good price, cost roughly 65 euros for 4 meals, a starter and a drink each. The food was good and came in good... More

Not just a pizza restaurant. Very big menu. Lots to choose from. Great wines. Great food, and the servers are very friendly.

We arrived just after 8 pm for dinner. The waiter did not greet us and we did not feel comfortable. We ordered pizza, as the restaurant had a wood oven. We found the service lacking and the pizza was just O K and quite expensive for what it was. The wine was nice but the quantity was very small, less... More

I enjoyed being back in Benicassim eating good food in the main town centre with so much atmosphere. I ate rice - a very good choice whilst in Spain!!

I really love La Manduca and I go there at least once every time I visit Benicassim. They offer good quality food: fresh pasta, home made pizzas and great meat. Top it off with one of their popular "sangrias" (wine with soda, juice and fruit) and finish with one of their excellent desserts. They have outdoor seating area in the... More

Good restaurant, that suits family needs with a large selection of dishes for all tastes. Located in the centre of Benicassim, with roadside tables, for lunch it's better seating inside since the traffic is not restricted. Nice service.

Visited this restaurant 3 times on a recent rip to benicassim for the festival. This was largely due to the fact that most other places seemed to be operating a "festival menu" which consisted mainly of chicken nuggets, burgers etc but the food at La Manduca was also a big draw. They had a vast array of different paella dishes... More
