Brilliant food and service

Great food and service. A lot of attention in the preparation and presentation of the food. The highlights were the cured salmon entree, lamb main and the two chocolate desserts (chocolate tart and chocolate dome). The service staff were very attentive and flexible. We have at Bella over the years... read more

We dined as a family last night. While it's quite pricey and the menu is not extensive the main meals served and the service provided is very good. Presentation of food was lovely so compliments to the Chefs. Only complaint was that the air con in the room was freezing. This did not make for an enjoyable meal. I asked... More

We dined here whilst staying at the Yarra Valley Lodge, its great to have such an amazing restaurant within the Lodge. We both had the duck entree (yum!) and then shared the suckling pig main for 2 people (which came with the choice of 2 side dishes). The pig was amazing - crispy skinned on the outside but beautifully tender... More

We shared a lamp plate for two people, but really three people could share it. It came with two side dishes and they offered many bread rolls. So there is no need to have an entrée, in my opinion. The dish was delicious and perfectly cooked. The restaurant is great and the staff are lovely. So it is definitely worth... More

Quality of food is excellent especially the breakfast. Close to those provided by the 5 star hotels. However, the price is a bit expensive.

We booked for dinner on a Saturday night and yes it was busy but the staff were quite attentive. We have had breakfast as part of the hotel stay but hadn't expected much from the dinner. We were wrong. The food was beautiful and the selection of wine was good. The service was efficient, overall exceeded our expectation.
