“A nice treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Been living in Westford my whole life and finally went to Belle's for the first time for our Anniversary. The wait staff, wine selection, and food were all phenomenal. It is quite unassuming from the outside (used to be Ye Olde' Beef n Ale!) but quaint and romantic on the inside. It is tiny which lends to the ambiance but does result in you sitting close to your neighbors and it can be rather loud. This would certainly not prevent me from returning if for nothing but their to die for risotto! I really enjoyed the entire experience and it is nice to have a higher end dining establishment in a town full of chain restaurants.

“Fantastic meal - definitely a special place for dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

Having heard lots of good reports locally of this restaurant, we finally managed to eat there last night. At first sight you'd think "what a funny looking restaurant" - its a small wooden structure tucked back off the road but when you get inside there's a really nice, cosy but comfortable atmosphere.
Lots of really good choices on the menu and we settled on sharing a starter of Grilled Shrimps in a spicy Orange dip - yum yum. We couldn't have eaten one of these individually as it was a good sized serving for two to share.

I went on to have the John Dory special and my husband, the Aberdeen Angus Sirloin. Both were served with Garlic Mash & grilled Asparagus spears. What wonderful flavours - we both thoroughly enjoyed our dinners. Drinks at the bar beforehand, coupled with great service at the table made for a really lovely night out. Thanks to all the staff at Belles

“better alternative to Westford's chain restaurants”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 14, 2012

Nice place. Pleasant, efficient service. ample portions (ate about 1/2 of our entrees). Beet, fennel, goat cheese salad was fun. Bread with garlic cloves and sweet(maple?) butter was nice in the bread basket. We'll be back....

“Amazing!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 30, 2012

Fantastic find - intimate atmosphere with great food, wait staff is happy to be there and a bartender that creates fun drinks and makes her drinks with love! We love a tall table for 2 - we feel like we're the only ones there! Food is varied with great specials, the Duxbury Oysters are delicious.Our favorite dinner is to order a few appetizers and a drink = a perfect night out! The owners, Nancy and John know what's important about going out to eat and they have made each person feel like they are the most important person in the room and food that is outstanding.
