Friends took me out to supper here and I loved the location - The Old Fire Station. It had been converted well, the atmosphere was good but the service was friendly but erratic and slow at times. For those expecting a really good Italian range of food, as the name of the restaurant suggests, you might be a little disappointed, but the food was good and the experience an enjoyable one.

We visited Cafe Bencotto on a Friday lunchtime. The restaurant was very busy but a table was soon found for us. We had the pesto bread, delicious and plenty of it, goats cheese and caramelised onion pizza and lemon tart and panettone bread and butter pudding. The puddings were delicious. We enjoyed everything very much. The restaurant has lovely decor and the service is warm and friendly. This has nothing to do with the lunch itself but the toilets have sparking lights on the ceiling!

When the wind is blowing and you need a quiet tucked away place to hide.....this venue is amazing! Stopped in for a light bite. Gnocchi and wine was fab. Reasonably priced, food warm and full of flavour. Service was perfect with no waiting for table or food or bill...Will be back soon!

Always enjoy coming to this restaurant in Felixstowe with good food and service. Nice relaxed atmosphere even for just a coffee and snack. Would recommend.

My wife and I have eaten here many times in the past but for some reason hadn't been in for several months and I have to say we had missed it!!!
It was good to be back (Saturday night) Great atmosphere ... with the restaurant buzzing and we enjoyed a 3 course meal with a bottle of wine, coffee and brandy for less than £60 - it's rumoured that the restaurant could be up for sale soon (Prezzo opening over the road!) well Tim - don't do it - Felixstowe needs Bencotto to stay as it is!!
