We go to Bellakai every day while we are in Coolangatta as they serve the best coffee ( and remember your order the next day) and the staff are so friendly and efficient. Have also had the freshly made muffins, which are huge and so moist, and the savoury scones, also delicious. The breakfast menu is varied and the food... More

Quick group breakfast which they accommodated for a large group. Very friendly attentive staff, well made and presented dishes full of flavor. Quite an extensive and imaginative menu with great specials. Definitely recommend on a sunny morning to start your day off right. Keep up the great work.

Food is really excellent. Smoothies are served in a pint glass! Only small issue was coffee milk was burnt. Coffee was quite nice but there is better.

There on a business dinner so the priority was good food, not cheap eats. And the food was delicious, the portions generous and the service attentive. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual and it's right across the road from the beach. A stroll along the beach after dinner would have been lovely, but it was raining that night which gets... More

Staff and Service were exceptional. We visited this restaurant 3 times in our stay in Coolangatta and after the first visit the staff remembered our drinks order. The food was fresh and tasty. The seafood tasting plate was one of the best I have had the "in house marinade" on the Baby Octopus was tangy and tasty. My husband who... More

Had a great breakfast there one year ago on our first visit to the area, Almost on the beach. Under red umbrellas, Sun Surf and great food. The position is amazing. Now, August 2016 , we had to go back and in fact spent the night in Coolangatta with the express reason we would have breakfast there. WE DID. Eggs... More

The location of this eatery could not be better. The food was outstanding, true home cooked style and just the thing after a big night! Overlooking the sundrenched Coolie beach enjoying coffee with friends was a treat. My only beef is that it is a tad cramped so people with prams, wheelchairs etc would find it difficult. Overall a lovely... More

While staying in Kirra Beach for three nights, we searched T/A for nearby restaurants for dinner one evening. We chose Bellakai and were not disappointed. We were greeted warmly and shown to our table. We selected the Prawn Pasta (AUS $32) and the Chicken Pasta (AUS $30), both very tastey. Our wait person, Lauren, was friendly with a warm personality... More
