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

went there twice in 3 days it was that good. Pizzas and pasta are to die for. Very reasonable food. 5 of us had 1 paella, 2 pizzas, 2 pastas, 3 cans of coke, 2 glasses of wine, 2 beers and 2 large bottles of water and came to 14 euros each - all AMAZING food. I'd especially recommend the... More

The food was nice and a large selection to choose from which helped our group. From traditional tapas dishes and paella selections and pizzas for the less adventurous of us. The waiter's english was limited, but with a little spanish spoken there was no problem. Prices seemed in line with other restaurants, which all rise during the festival time we... More

Ate here last night... We had fabulous fresh anchovies in a tomato salad, and beautiful prawns for starters. Then the ravioli and a calzone for our main course. The food was really tasty and we would definitely recommend this Italian to anyone. The service was good and we had 2 glasses of house red.. It came to €46 which was... More
