YET ANOTHER GREAT EVENING WITH GOOD SERVICE AND FOOD

My wife wanted wheat and glutton free food and the waitress was first class at pointing out what she could eat from the menu, nothing was to much trouble and the food was lovely. Will continue to visit here and recommend it. Keep up the good... read more

A lovely lunch at Bartellas today with excellent service from Jackie and the team. It was particularly nice to see Lorna again. She has been a stalwart of many Chelmsford restaurants.

Had a 3 course dinner here mid week with my boyfriend. We started with tempura prawns and the spiced avocado pear - both were lovely. I had the pork belly main which came with a good crackling stick (all about the crackling) and my boyfriend's chicken was nice too. Both were very filling so we left some time before dessert....

Ate here for the first time since the refurbishment and we were completely impressed and satisfied with the lovely food, great service and attention to detail. It was my daughters birthday and Terry and Lorna looked after us so well. Lorna dealt with all the arrangements which were perfect. All our family enjoyed the occasion and will definitely return.

We booked a table for ourselves and two guests for Sunday Lunch 26 July. We have visited several times before with different guests. The food and service have always been very good. This time the food and service were exceptional. We all thought the quality of each dish, the presentation, the taste and service were outstanding. Bartella's is, and always... More

Ate here for the third time and has yet to disappoint . Friendly staff and flavoursome food. Atmosphere ok considering it's quite open. Thought the prices were very reasonable too!

Lovely venue, easily reachable off main A12 from any direction. Food really good with plenty of choice for all tastes, atmosphere ok but we went on a Tuesday. However, the service was excellent, especially from the maitre d' who was discretely attentive all evening. Would definitely go back though, give it a try !

Our first time at the restaurant and I have to say what a wonderful experience it was. The service was both personal and on point. We felt not only welcomed but also special too at the same time. Great genuine friendly atmosphere coupled with food that was cooked to absolute perfection. We enjoyed the whole experience and fully appreciated the... More

On Sunday July 19th we had a celebration meal for our daughter and husband on their visit to the UK following their wedding in Australia. The occasion was held in a function room of the Best Western rather than the restaurant itself. However, Bartellas manager Mr Terry George is to be congratulated on his meticulous attention to detail. He was... More
