My family and I enjoyed the BEST DINNER ever at Bella Luce restaurant. From the moment we walked in, the staff and service were impeccable. The food was truly the best. Our dinner service was never rushed; the staff was very, very nice. Eduardo on the bar make the best cocktails on the island.. Beautiful wine list. With stunning wines like Albert Bichot.. The Food & Beverage Manager Ricardo is so attentive and friendly always ensuring that the service is the best..
Highly recommend for occasional dinner our for a special occasion.

Regards to all

Fantastic time at the Bellla last night. The owner was superb and sauve. The staff were attentive and very sophisticated. Ricardo is the best. He is the best in Gsy or London (I know restaurants in London who would hire him tomorrow). My verdict is superb, Chef Seb is also great respect. J

I just came back from the worst dinner Ive ever had.
Booked as a company of five. We were having a 'goodbye' meal as one of our friends was going away for good so we decided to have a nice meal with her before she goes.
(we actualy had a fantastic meal a year ago there, superb)
Where do I start. As we arrived we met in the bar for a drink. Nobody came to see us to offer any drinks as we sat there. After a while we went to the table, with two menus in our hands.
After 45 minutes (Im not joking) a waitress came to see us - just to see if we are ok. We were not.
After her, we waited another 10 minutes for someone to come and take the DRINK order, not talking about food order. Complete disaster!
17 guests in the restaurant - 3 waiters and one waitress and service very very poor.
we waited one hour 15 minutes for drinks. Food came one hour fourty minutes after we took a seat at the table. That it completely unacceptable.
Starters were ok. Main course - disaster. Stake cooked very welldone instead of meadium. Ceaser salad came wet, like they were made days ago. Chicked tastless, cold, more warm than hot. No anchoves in the salad, eggs disgusting. Oh my god, this was a nightmare...
We could not take it anymore. we went straight to the manager whos was a foreigner and did not seem to care much as all he said was - sorry. Other waiter kept swearing in his foreign language as we asked them for a drinks in the bar (he was portugeese I suppose).
I have told this to my friends - I am never ever coming back there. EVER.
After dinner we booked a taxi for five of us with receptionist - came a taxi for four although next taxi could make it only in half an hour. A NIGHTMARE.
Can you imagine if we where hotel inspectors? They would lose a star staight away.
