“Fresh Produce cooked to perfection, without all the glitz of other try hards”
Reviewed September 2, 2011

We stumbled upon this restaurant, trying to find decent food before a show. I must say it was the best meal I/we have eaten on the Gold / Tweed Coast. The seafood was extremely fresh, the steak perfectly cooked, all beautifully presented in a 5 Star manner. Each dish was superbly complimented with salads & vegetables to bring out the best. Menu was moderately extensive, offering a reasonable choice for all taste buds. Compliments to the Chefs!

“Excellent coffee”
Reviewed August 16, 2011

Excellent coffee - the best I could find around the beachside area.

Mid-winter fruit salad left a lot to be desired (I should have known) but other breakfasts going out to customers looked very nice.

Service was slow, I think they were understaffed.

“Always good”
Reviewed July 19, 2011

Been to Bellakai a few times now - most recently with a group of 10 work colleagues for lunch - midweek and no reservation either. No drama for them - they quickly rearranged tables for us without any complaint at all.

Been a couple of times for dinner as well.

Food is always brilliant; service is friendly, unpretentious and helpful; locationand atmosphere are lovely.

Strongly recommended for all occasions

“The best food in Coolangatta”
Reviewed April 27, 2011

My partner and I visited Coolangatta a few weeks ago. We dined at a few restaurants and this one was by far the best. I don't normally rate restaurants but felt this one deserved it. The food was amazing, the atmosphere was lovely. The only negative is that the service was a bit slow because they were full, but as they say good things come to those who wait :) Its not as cheap as some of the other restaurants in the area but its that much better so worth the extra $$$.

“Best in Cooly !”
Reviewed April 1, 2011

We dined at Bellakai Restaurant twice for dinner as we were staying in Coolangatta for a week’s conference. After trying numerous other restaurants in town & we rated Bellakai as one the best in Coolangatta.

Our first night we shared a calamari dish which was lovely & for my main I opted for prawn & chilli linguini which was absolutely scrumptious. My husband had the lamb with roasted tomatoes. All meals were brilliant and we were pleasantly surprised by the high standard of the meals.

On our second visit we decided to do the reverse & hubby tried the linguini & prawns & I had the steak with roasted potatoes both were delicious. Our desserts were equally yummy!

Overall -The restaurant décor is sweet & inviting, we found all meals to be delightful & the presentation appealing. The staff members were a little slow but we were enjoying the restaurant so it didn't really upset us. However, we did notice them pouring the wrong wine to a table.
