Reviewed January 25, 2013

Beachfront dining with a choice of dining indoors or out on a verandah. We chose the verandah. Fresh, locally sourced produce
Our meals were barramundi with asparagus, roasted baby tomatoes and fennel roulade and the wife pork belly served with cauliflower puree and raisin caper relish. It was delicious and perfect for lunch. not too heavy. Have dined here before and would definitely return.

“NYE Fireworks and Food”
Reviewed January 12, 2013

Partner and I enjoyed dinner at Bellakai on New Years Eve. Price was high for the 5 course meal however expect it was on par for the nicer restaurants in the area.

Portions of the first course were tiny, less than bitesize, but we were kept in check by unlimited amounts of freshly baked bread. Welcome cocktail was a surprise touch and mains and dessert were delicious. We were limited to 2 choices for each course which was too restrictive for the location and with both of us not seafood fans we were forced to have the same main.

Final impressions were good when we received parting gifts of candles and cake pops. Staff were very good, our northern England waiter lovely and very attentive. We could watch the 9pm fireworks from our table although they were not as good as expected.

If looking for a nice restaurant among the somewhat random lower key eateries along the beach, Bellakai would be one of the best.

“Fantastic all round”
Reviewed January 11, 2013

We had breakfast at Bellakai. The menu is extensive, catering for all appetites and dietary requirements.
The large glasses of freshly squeezed juice were tasty and refreshing.
Service was prompt including all of us receiving our meal at the same time!
