Reviewed 3 March 2013 via mobile


Good paninis, specially the four cheese variation. Again, if you want a quick bite in the marina area.

“Great food!”
Reviewed 24 January 2013

If you are in the Marina area, this place is definitely worth a stop. Ate some of the best Lazagna ever. Great food, and not expensive. Others around us ordered Paninis, looked great as well.

“A lot to be desired breakfast”
Reviewed 13 January 2013

My husband and I ordered Omelettes...he ordered ham, cheese and spinach, it came with a little cheese and spinach, no ham. They took it back to the kitchen and put some ham in it and returned it, by then the eggs were cold. I had a veggie Omelette, which consisted of cheese, spinach and tomatoes, and not much of any of these items were in it. They advertise this wonderful Omelette with fresh fruit and potatoes..the fruit was good but we were told they did not have any potatoes....I mean, REALLY, for $80.00 Pesos!! The coffee was good, but $2,50 for a cup with no refills. We can go any place in the Marina area and have a really awesome breakfast for less money and free coffee refils. We will not go back to Benittos...BTW, we live here full time.

“Fun Little Place for Lunch”
Reviewed 5 November 2012

Benitto's was recommended by friends who now live in PV. It is located in a new area between the port and the airport. We walked there from the cruise ship terminal in about 20 mins.
The service is friendly- feels more like Spain or Italy than Mexico. A nice variety of sandwiches and pasta, but don't expect the pasta to be al dente or the bread to be crusty like in Europe.
Prices are reasonable and there is free wifi. I would recommend this to anyone wanting a fun, non-Mexican lunch.

“THE place in the marina”
Reviewed 9 October 2012

Benitto's is a small lounge/bar/restaurant in the marina which is great for breakfast or lunch in the day, but can be a really fun vibe and party there at night. In season certain nights (usually Thursday and Saturdays) can be really full with a DJ playing awesome house music. Definitely one of the better places in the marina.
