I was running 15 minutes late for an 8:00pm reservation and my friends called me because the manager wanted us to order. And rushed us out of the door when we finished. Full of Chavs also. Food decent but London prices for not London standard.

Made the mistake of having starters. The food was lovely and we couldn't finish our mains which was a shame as the dessert menu looked great, but the staff were more than happy to pack it for us so we could take it home. First time going but wont be the last. Will book next time, as even for a Monday night it was busy.

Another fantastic meal From the chefs at Bella Pais. The rib eye steak was excellent. Service excellent. Will definitely be returning for another meal. A must visit restaurant.

Absolutely LOVE this restaurant, they serve the best steak for miles and the atmosphere is amazing.

It is a bit on the pricey side, so we tend to go for special occasions but I think that makes it even better! They also serve Laurent Perrier Rose at a decent price too!

I always have the steak diane, cooked rare, which is to die for, every single time. The service is amazing and all the sides are always cooked perfectly too.
My 21 year old brother always manages to polish off the biggest steak, which comes on its own as it is literally the size of a dinner plate!

The very best thing about this restaurant is that anything you don't finish you can take home with you, which we always do because we always go a bit mad on the side dishes.

The camembert wraps are amazing as a starter, as are the pate filled mushrooms which are topped with cheese. My brothers always have the chilli beef which tastes lovely too!
