After our scheduled luau was cancelled because of high winds, we decided to head to Kailua to find a place for dinner. We happened to drive by Bella Bistro and decided to check it out. Unbelievable friendly staff...really got the impression that they just enjoyed working there. Great food...started with fresh bread and garlic butter (very garlicy...yum!). We had the hummus appetizer...very generous serving. The garlic shrimp was was not as garlicy as expected, but still good. The mahi special was also very good. Finished the night with the cheesecake with berries. As another reviewer commented, this is not a place for a quick meal...it is a place to relax and enjoy the meal. Definitely worth the trip to Kailua.
