    Great food. Great service. Great value.

  • ((((* 8 December 2015 by Nina from Chelmsford

    Food was tasty, lamb shank was slightly tough. It should fall off the bone if cooked properly, but ours didn't. Children's menu good value for money and children thought it very nice. Service was slow which wouldn't matter if you just want to enjoy a meal out with family.
    Restaurant has a slightly grimey and sticky feel to it. I think the tables need a good scrub periodically, not just a wipe with a damp cloth. Saying that I still eat there as the atmosphere is good.

    We go to the Southend-on-Sea Bella regularly and usually enjoy it. Unfortunately last night 4th December, my wife had to send her meal back as it was cold.

    Completely ruined by glum almost rude waitress. We were such an inconvenience no wonder the place was half empty

    Lovely food good value for money

  • (((** 11 September 2013 by Maggie from Eastwood

    The food portions were really not very good, one of the young lads who was with us had 2 meals. My portion was like a childs portion and I do not eat big portions.
    My pasta dish was £9.00 which was a lot of money for a plate of pasta with tomato sauce and very small, 4 mouthfuls and it was gone.
