This was a birthday surprise and was a great night. The food was excellent and the customer service was very attentive but not overpowering. It is fairly quiet but that meant you were not rushed to your table and out again. We had a drink first and were then given the menus. After ordering we were shown to our table... More

We visited Bartella's with a party of 16 the night before our wedding. A nice and decently sized table was set up and the atmosphere was very friendly. The three course fixed price meal was great value for money: food was brilliant, wines fitted nicely (with an excellent Sancerre I must say!) and the service was good, with very friendly... More

I took my wife here for a meal for her birthday the other night. The Restaurant is set within beautiful grounds and even though it is just off the A12 You would not really notice. The place was quite empty which I thought was a shame but it did mean that we had very attentive staff throughout the meal. The... More

Chelmsford has few good restaurants, so it was great to find one which had an interesting menu and delicious food which was well presented. The staff were friendly, but not over the top and polite and you are made to feel very welcome. I experienced excellent customer service regarding changing my booking and very grateful for this. The restaurant is... More

A jewel in the crown of Essex eateries. A menu that has lots to choose from (a bit too much though and could do with trimming down to concentrate on a few good dishes). The only thing is that it is trying to please too many people and should focus a little more of a few signature dishes. Saying that... More

We took all the family to lunch at Bartellas last Sunday As soon as the meal came up, we noticed a lot of changes in the presentation and improved food. We asked if there was a new chef, and we were told there had been a change a couple of months ago. The meal was fabulous and we were pleased... More

First time I have visited and not disappointed. Food great. Ambiance was excellent. Staff very attentive and we are not rushed. Whilst some were wearing jeans, both my son and I didn't feel out of place wearing shirt and tie which I can say isn't the same for other places we've visited. Looking forward to next visit.
