Great flavours

Appealed from the street. The staff were consistently great, from a lunchtime walk past booking to an evening arrival. Drinks were prompt but we had the menu for 20 minutes before they thought to tell us the specials or that there was a kids menu. The menu is great, and there is something for any... read more

Enjoyed an awesome lunch here a couple of months ago. Great food, fantastic & friendly service, relaxing location ! Value for money with the $29 two course lunch special we had - entree, main & choice of beer. Well worth a visit 😊

We happened upon this restaurant and without a reservation took the chance they could fit 6 of us in. The lovely staff set up a table very quickly and drinks were on the table very quickly. I had the special Veal Saltimbuca which was delicious, everyone loved their chosen dishes and the desserts were to die for. Bit pricey but... More

What a shame when good food is ruined by a chef who cannot season his food correctly. In my case really salty calamari. When paying the account the real surprise was to be told that it was not a real surprise as it was a recurring problem with one of the chefs. Why was no one responsible on hand to... More

Thanks for taking the time to review a restaurant in your own town. Your 2nd review. In reference to your Calamari being too Salty? Too salty for you, a personal preference, Too salty you sent it back to the kitchen- No. Too Salty you didn't eat it- No. The dish that you ordered is cooked with Chilli Salt, as stated... More

Came here last year and thought we must come back. Tonight after being seated then forgotten about with no drink menu we thought mmm. Had bread to start with and hardly enough oil and balsamic for one piece let alone 4 pieces. The anti pesto entree was beautiful so this was the upside. Mains the barramundi was burnt and the...

An unfortunate, disappointing read sums up my thoughts to read these comments from a customer that has returned a year later. Sometimes during peak service times there maybe a wait for drinks list, menu's etc.. but this should be addressed easily. As for burnt fish? Why would you not send it back, I wonder why its served? Our spinach is... More

We were celebrating our anniversary and I needed some guidance. I referred to Tripadvisor and decided on Bel Cibo as some previous reviewers had rated it so well and commented its rating should be way up Top. I booked with excited anticipation and wasn't disappointed. We were seated on the verandah on a balmy night. Table setting, service and food... More
