Brendon Mitchell and Kate Krauss-Mitchell you sent a text to all the staff of Bess advising that you are closing and not re opening. What about the outstanding wages of the staff? Will they be paid?

“great tastes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 24, 2012

We ordered a selection of entrees and bites to share. The tempura style cauliflower with cinnamon dressing was delicious. Will certainly return.

“Good reasonably priced local eatery”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 9, 2012 via mobile

Fairly limited menu but you'll find something you like. I had the fish. Husband had the burger. We had pigs ears and crackling ( yes you read that right) and steak tartare as entree. Steak tartare was huge... Too big for one. Nice and spicy. Burger was rare and quite small but big enough... Well priced. Ok service. We had a waitress who was on her first shift... She was efficient. Food was on time as were the drinks. would go back... But reckon if you went often enough the menu would start to bore you...

“Great Service, beautiful food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2012 via mobile

We hadn't intended to go here but as it looked good, we went in when another restaurant was full.

It wasn't cheap but it was worth the cost.

You could order whatever you saw on the menu, knowing full well it would be delicious, different and well-presented. The wine list wasn't wide but was good value.

It was typical modern cuisine with some unusual ingredient combinations but these were not just for their own sake but were well thought out and delicious. The service was friendly, attentive, informative and enjoyable.

Altogether, an excellent, quality night-out
