Good. Very good. We came for Sunday lunch with family. Pleasant large grounds greet you. Attractive venue. Staff very professional. Food good, kids also liked their meal, & infant portions just right. All in all a well run establishment. For some unknown reason I had Best Western venues in my mind as low grade. Shame on me. This was good.... More

We had a lovely meal at Bartellas last week. The service was top notch from the moment we walked in. We were escorted to the plush bar area before taking our seat to dine at.
