“Worth the Wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 6, 2013

My family had a great meal at LIsa Bella's. Having the restaurant located across from our condo was very convenient and the food was much better than I had anticipated. Our server was knowledgeable and quick to take care of us. My wife had the Mermaid soup for a starter, it had a very nice depth of flavor. She and I both ordered grilled fish with accompanying sides and enjoyed them. My daughter, 5, had one of the best cheese pizzas she has had. All the food was very nicely prepared and very flavorful. We had to wait for awhile between appetizer and entree courses but that was the only negative to an otherwise wonderful dinner.

“Unexpected gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2013

Had dinner here while staying at a condo down the road. Really cute setting, and we were near the end of dinner service. The food was very good, and the menu had a good variety of things. Good presentation and well prepared dinner. Server could have been a little more engaging. She looked either tired or a little nervous, but once we started talking with her, she did warm up a little. Not a,cheap dinner, but worth the price. Only comment was I was seated at one of the banquettes, and there was no back support. The seat was deep, and you had to lean into reach the table. watch out if you have a bad back, and request a table/ chairs combo.

“AMAZING!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

The food, the service, the atmosphere all were exemplary! It is a few miles out of town now. Our last visit they were still in the Flat's Area, now they are located in Cinnamon Shore. Worth the drive! Take your special someone, they will really appreciate you.

When in Port Aransas don't miss Lisa Bellas! Some of the finest food in town! Mermaid Soup is their speciality so make sure to try it! The Seafood Enchiladas are wonderful too! It is our "go to" place while in Port Aransas!
