Our group went for an early dinner and had no problem finding a table on the street. The wait staff took good care of us bring drinks and taking our dinner order. Our group appetizer was a pear salad which was very very nice. All the food was presented nicely and tasted wonderful. All went well until we started to... More

I really do like this little cafe/bistro right at the side of the marina. You get a good mixed European and funky Vallarta feeling and style. Very friendly people and service, it is like going home. Good bread and pastries, very nice sandwiches, like the carpaccios and the salads as well. Good place for a small bite or a glass... More

What a delightful little place in Marina Vallarta! Benitto's has a great eclectic vibe just perfect for a date night or for lunch with the girls. Very nice assortment of wines, beers and classic cocktails. I've eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. On occasion, they offer talented musicians, which make for a delightful evening of entertainment. The... More

He said that 8% are not enough and 15% is the use!! The service was very bad and that'why we decided to... More

I am reluctant to write this review as soon Benitto's will be discovered and packed all the time. Five of us went there for cocktails and dinner and were very pleasantly surprised. We had drinks and appetizers in the bar area, which were all excellent and the drinks were very reasonably priced. When our table was ready we were moved... More

Great spot with different sandwiches and atmosphere. We had ham and cheese on a baguette and roasted eggplant. Both were very good with a crunch to the baguette. Staff is very friendly and willing to make any type of sandwich you would like. Highly recommended.
