Birthday treat for my husband, steaks to die for and lamb so tender. Lots of choice, and friendly and helpful staff. Best to book, as very popular.

We had a great meal here with family. Couldn't fault the service and the food was lovely! The steak is to die for, the best you could ever have! We have friends coming to stay from up north and they have asked to book for their visit as they said the Bella Pais was the best restaurant in Colchester and... More

We ordered starters and main and i just about had enough room for afters which was lovely. I had the Mussels starter followed... More

After hearing lots of people say how good this resturarant was, we decide to try it for ourselves and we were not let down one bit. We went as a party of 12 and had the party menu, 3 courses for £23. I had the garlic mushrooms followed by fillet steak which melt in your mouth, for dessert I had... More

Dropped in on a Sunday evening as always packed on a Saturday night. We went straight to mains. Kleftico and a swordfish steak with a bottle of wine. All excellent with friendly service. The downside? Very pricey at £52 considering there wasn't a starter (no bread or olives which felt odd) no dessert, coffees liqueurs. I suspect £100 would be... More

If you like steak this is the place! They can make it as big as you want. Sea Bass is also fab! The maître D- Ravi (Egyptian) is prob. the best Md in town. Go for the last dinner slot, it's more chilled. The food is consistent, not pretentious and please-- don't over order on the starters because you're unlikely... More
