We were very lucky to have breakfast at Bellakai just before the Commonwealth Queen's Baton passed along at 7 am on 3 April. Great "special" scrambled eggs and best coffee in Coolangatta. Staff are wonderful.

A very unassuming place from the outside. Across from the beach in a good location. Service was fantastic and friendly. Catered from full meals to just a coffee. Meal was great.

We come to Coolangatta 2 or 3 times a year and always have dinner at Bellakai and it has always been excellent. But I am sorry that last night it was not up to its usual high standard. The service was quite slow and the...More
