After an awful experience like Longrain in Surry Hills (see separate review), immediate positives are that you can have a conversation without shouting, the air conditioning works and they don't make you share your table with strangers. Menu was a bit limited and unexciting, but the prawns, duck terrine and kipfler potato were ok, as was the 2014 Deviation Road... More

After a very nice Bloody Mary in the bar, we sat down in their light and airy restaurant out the back. It's a warm and welcoming place. We were served by a lady from France and one from Germany - both terrific. There were 5 in our group and we all had steak - and none of us were disappointed.... More

Dinner at The Bellevue topped off a great evening. Starting with a Gallery Opening and a glass of wine with my daughter, her partner and my husband; we then all sauntered down the road to The Bellevue. Not knowing what to expect we were to be delighted. I had the duck leg which was superb. The accompanying grains were perfect.... More

Although full restaurant wasn't available we only wanted quick lunch and bar menu was definately good eneough. Service was great, food was superb, highly recomend the salad with added chicken, great value and the salmon was very good. First time my family had been here since refit and although they hadn't ate here before would definately come back.

Not only was the service great but the food was outstanding too, great flavours, excellent execution of cooking techniques and well presented dishes. Very impressed with... More

My first visit since the refit and can't quite put my finger on it but it's just not there. Ok no sausages and mash - pity - but the service of some of the staff was well below the price level and the food was so so. We sat in the corridor part and it was pretty noisy. Living less... More

I had a great lunch at the Bellevue Hotel new restaurant today only thing that was slightly satisfactory was the staff & writing this review as I feel it's important to let you know that although the interior has been done very well the food was bad and the time it took to get meals was 45mins even with only...

We're glad the gorgeous old Bellevue is back offering the same refined dining experience within a casual local setting. The ground floor flows seamlessly from bar to dining, with a public bar at the front (perfect for a casual drink with friends), and a large dining space at the back, complete with an oyster bar. Diners can expect a Modern European menu, brimming with the best seasonal and local produce. Upstairs, the Bellevue Terrace offers the perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail and relax of a weekend. Come and see for yourself.
