As with previous reviews, we also had the nice Italian waiter and had no problem with him, BUT we were still eating our entree when the mains came out. They would have taken them back to the kitchen, but we said it was ok to leave them. No attempt was made to clear the other dishes. We then find that... More

We had a lovely dinner at Bel Cibo. I had Crab Linguine and my husband the fettuccini carbonara and both our meals were delicious. We also shared a great baked Italian Meringue. We had not booked so we were lucky to get a table as it was quite busy but we were still served promptly. We were very impressed with... More

We had our wedding dinner here as the menu suited some fussy eaters in our party. They gave us a great table on the balcony and the ambiance was lovely. Drinks took quite a while to come but the place was busy. Food was excellent quality and priced in accordance with similar restaurants in the area (i.e. not cheap, but... More

Lunch after the Port Douglas Sunday market was fantastic. Prosciutto pizza was sensational... the right mixture of flavours, crust just perfect. Warm Pesto tossed Chicken was served on a generous salad. Flavour combos great. Service was just right, good coffee. Recommended.

We has passed this restaurant the previous night and it was packed out, so came back ourselves the following evening. It was around 8.00pm when things get quieter in Port Douglas - at least at this time of year - so the restaurant was less busy and we should have received great service. There was a long delay after we... More
