Whilst staying at the hotel we ate at the restaurant on all 3 evenings as it was such a good experience. The food is very good, the chef is obviously very talented but it was the waiters and bar staff that made it perfect. They are efficient, very friendly and are happy to work there. Breakfast was freshly cooked to order too.

The restaurant at the Bella Luce has improved again from last year! Already running at a high standard the range and quality of the dishes now on offer is truly exceptional. The selection of fish brought in daily from the boats is fab and the quality of the steaks excellent! This is only really surpassed by super service by really friendly and genuinely caring staff! The family celebration dinner in the private dining room was most memorable and the 1er Cru Chablis served throughout was delightful - every member of the party commented on the quality of the food and this included a number of demanding children! My only regret was not being able to try the new seafood platter but this will be the priority on our next visit!

Thought I better return a good review after panning it a couple of years ago. In the early days it tried to hard and failed especially on service. It now seems to have found a new rhythm. The good is very good and the atmosphere very relaxed yet stylish and you feel well looked after. The beef fillet was Argentinian in quality!

It's a lovely old house which has been beautifully renovated and the dining room is very comfortable. The menu is interesting and varied, with a good selection of local fish and shellfish. Portions are not overwhelming but quality is excellent.

We had an incredible evening at the Bella Luce Hotel for a pre-wedding evening with canapés and drinks and we were not disappointed. The BBQ canapés were nothing short of amazing with the quality and quantity, and the staff were friendly and attentive at all times.
The surroundings of the garden and pool were an idilic setting for such an occasion in the calm of St Martins parish. A top class job well done.
