I went to Benny's for the party of some of my friends and the place is nice decorated, just a bit to small but nice atmosphere, great live music and the staff are professional and friendly. The food was presented well and good taste.

Hi Mark. We are about 600meters from the Best Western bangtao beach. Going towards the Amanpuri resort. It will take you about 10 mins walking. Hope to see you soon!

Inspired by the American bars of London that flourished in the golden age of travel in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, Benny's American Bar & Grill serves classic cocktails and fresh grilled meats in an intimate and convivial setting between Surin and Bangtao beaches. Each Benny's cocktail has been selected to unveil the mystery of a certain time and place, from the dark glamour of a Hemingway bar in Cuba to the vitality of New York City to the pastel dreams of Venice and beyond. Benny's food menu highlights comfort and no-nonsense freshness, with flavourful pork ribs, steak tartare made tableside and New Zealand lamb among the star attractions. Come as a stranger, leave as a friend. Welcoming and warm, Benny's is the place where you're made feel at home, whether you've travelled here from across the globe or across the street. Founded in 2015 by Benedikt De Bellis, a long-term resident of Phuket from Italy, who brings his hospitality expertise working with several luxury hotels and restaurants in Europe and Asia to this new labour of love.
