I have eaten at this restaurant many times and am never disappointed. The portions are very generous and you cannot fault the steaks which are always perfectly cooked regardless as to whether you want it rare or well done. This is a cosy place to eat and has excellent service. Beats the chain restaurants of which a few have popped... More

We had heard a lot about Bella Pais, we both had starters which were nice then we both had steaks, my partner had the 30oz rump it was huge we paid £30. You have to pay extra for sauce, potatoes, veg etc. Overall I would say nice, not the best steak iv ever had and Deffo not the worse. Lovely... More

Brilliant. Attentive staff and chef. Homely feel. Can sometimes be a little tight and noisy but the quality and taste of the food is totally worth it. One of my favourites in colchester.

7 of us on the table and not a single complaint from any of us. I always have eyes bigger than my stomach and there was no change here tonight. 23oz T bone cooked rare - delicious! A couple of our party had the surf and turf which looked perfect too. Only problem being that I'd eaten so much I... More

We visited the Bella Pais restaurant for the first time last week. Several people had recommended it but this was the first chance to visit and it was definitely worth the wait. We both had steak and it was cooked to perfection, the portions are huge and we had plenty of food, it was just a shame we were full... More
