We ate here a few days ago. The atmosphere was nice and friendly as were the staff. The menu was good with a nice variety of dishes with some interesting additions on the specials board, with several local crab dishes. We were very pleased with our meals which we felt were good value for money. I would definately return when... More

Came here as we got 10% off from staying in nearby Red Lion hotel. The food we had was lovely, can't fault it all and the service was excellent. When we were seated we were told a starter wasn't available, fair enough. But when we tried to order dessert they had ran out of tiramisu (not good for an Italian... More

Thanks for leaving us a review, we always hate it when we run out of dishes but that's the price we pay for making everything ourselves I guess.. We will speak to the staff in regards to the Specials board...that is a bit silly!! Really glad you enjoyed the rest of your meal. See you again Bella Vista More

This was probably the worst four seasons pizza i've ever tasted - too many horrible green olives, chopped ham(?) and tinned artichokes. The tomato sauce was off colour and sour. I couldn't find a 4th quarter! It hadn't even been cut through. The mixed side salad was limp and lifeless. The table was dirty. My daughter's pizza came with cold... More

We are really sorry that you did not enjoy your visit to Bella Vista. Our Four Seasons Pizza is very popular, the fourth topping should have been Mushroom our Artichokes are marinated by the Chef. Our Passata is homemade daily but we will pass on your comments to the Chef as you were not 100% satisfied. We are shocked that... More

Lovely coffee served by friendly staff and accompanied by a small pot of smarties............magic! On our second visit we enjoyed a delicious meal; great food and excellent service all at a reasonable price. Would certainly go back if I was in the area and can definitely recommend Bell Vista.

Had an evening meal here with my wife, overlooking Cromer beach and pier. The food was lovely, and with more than reasonable portions. The staff were very freindly. We would return for sure as this was a very enjoyable evening. Would recommend booking to ensure that you get a window table.
