Pizza, Pasta, Mediterranean

The flavours of Greece, Spain, The Levant, and North Africa, as well as Italy, can be found on our menus and specials boards. Enjoy “Breakfast at Benny’s” until noon; or in true Med. style, choose from our small plates and mixed boards to share; enjoy an authentic pizza, pasta or grill item from our main menu; or sample our cocktails and tapas. We operate an informal “just turn up” policy (but you can book for parties over 8). You will always find a warm welcome and a buzzy atmosphere.

Located on Felixstowe’s main drag – Hamilton Road, Café Bencotto is the result of careful restoration and sympathetic enhancement to what was originally Felixstowe’s Fire Station. The gilt framed mirrors, stunning chandeliers and leather seating contrast with the exposed brick, reclaimed bar and original glazed tiles. You can lunch in the window and watch the world go by, enjoy a leisurely brunch with your laptop in our comfy heated courtyard, or wine and dine in front of the open kitchen where you can see our brigade of chefs busily preparing your food.


All our dishes are freshly prepared on the premises using seasonal ingredients whenever possible and cooked to order.


You will find Café Bencotto on Felixstowe’s main shopping street, on your left if you are travelling from the station towards the beach.

A group of individual venues in Felixstowe

Due to extreme difficulties recruiting at the moment, and the strength of demand when we are open, we have taken the decision to shorten our food service hours to give our chefs a chance to regroup and recuperate. For the next few weeks (from Aug 31st) there will be no breakfast menu available and no food service in the afternoons. We apologise for the inconvenience but at the moment our priorities are staff welfare and maintaining our usual standards when we are open. We will review as soon as possible.
