“Chic Venue, Modern Food, Wonderful Cocktails”
Reviewed May 11, 2012

The food here is delicious - you can share plates or go for the mouthwatering main dishes. Service is really good too. Make sure you book a table - it is really busy on Friday and Saturday nights.

“Twice absolutely great third time disaster”
Reviewed May 10, 2012

Went to Bellakai for breakfast as it is highly recommended on Tripadvisor. The first time was a wet Saturday morning and they were extremely busy. There were 5 adults and a baby in a stroller, staff directed us to a table and sorted things out with the stroller and we felt genuinely welcomed. Ordered our coffees which were just right and then our meals which arrived promptly, well presented, plenty on the plate and delicious . Even though they were busy everything was great. Next visit was Sunday morning and again they were extremely busy and again no problem even though 7 adults and a baby, we were seated in a very friendly manner. Again delicious food and coffee and the service excellent. The older lady was brilliant, her customer service skills excellent.
The next time we went to Bellakai was a weekday morning, the restaurant wasn't very busy with only 6 tables occupied when we arrived. Again 5 adults and baby. Wait staff younger and very officious, seated us at the table. We ordered our coffee then our meals. My brother asked for no tomato with his meal but asked for a hash brown instead, the waitress said that he would have to pay extra, when he asked if it couldn't be swapped the waitress replied that he would have to pay extra as the tomato was only a garnish and he could talk to the owner about it. My brother said okay he would just pay the extra. We then sat and watched as other diners who had arrived AFTER us received all their meals and drinks. I went to the counter after 40 minutes and asked what the hold up was and was told the meals were ready and would be out soon. 10 minutes later I again asked where our meals were and was told again that they were on the way, I replied that we would have to leave soon as we had a long drive ahead of us and was assured the meals would be out pronto. We finally received our meals after nearly an hour of waiting. The meals were nearly cold the wrap looked as if it had been dropped and the meals didn't seem as plentiful as the other times. We felt most unwelcome and the staff were very abrupt which was totally different to our first two visits. When we went to pay I asked if this chef was different to the one on weekends as I didn't think the food was as good, the waitress replied that it was the same one. We were very disappointed with our final breakfast both with the food and most definitely with the service. Would love to recommend it if only for the wonderful service and food on the weekend but unfortunately the bad service and food at the final breakfast spoilt that.

“Great coffee opposite Coolangatta beach!”
Reviewed May 1, 2012

If you're on the Southern Gold Coast, Bellakai is a great place to enjoy fabulous breakfast, coffee and a yummy home made scone, while you enjoy the views across the road to Coolangatta beach. Get there early, before Marine Parade gets too busy, and you'll have a better view of the beach. Friendly and attentive staff. Its always busy, which is a great sign!
