This restaurant is closed. Curious to see what Chef will open it up again and when? Seems that many restaurants in KK are closing at the moment.

We only visited for breakfast and the only vegetarian option was the mushroom omelette but it was tasty and set us up for the day and the coffee is great? Good value and centrally located - but can only remark on breakfast!

MEET BELLA.. In Italian and Spanish, 'Bella' means beautiful...and she is! She's the elegant restaurant on Gaya Street, standing on the corner where the Jesselton Hotel is. But she's not just beautiful outside, she is inside too...You thought Bella was Italian, right? All pizza and pasta? Wrong. BELLA IS WORLDLY. She dropped 'Italia' a few years ago, and expanded her horizons. Dine at Bella and experience five different cuisines: Mediterranean, Latin, Middle Eastern, Indian and, of course, her local specialities by traditional cooks who have stayed with her all through the decades. Bella changes her menu every three months, to keep things fresh and exciting. BELLA IS LOCAL. Only around 10-12% of the food used is imported. The rest is sourced locally, creating personal relationships with local producers. Bella places an order for vegetables with farmers from the Ranau/Kundasang area; the vegetables are picked overnight and brought in at 9.30am the next morning.BELLA IS HEALTHY. She has a new range of healthy beverages, using all local fruits and with no sugar added. Bella doesn't fry the fish for her 'Fish & Chips', it's grilled - healthier and with more flavour. She knows what people in town like to eat, but she does it in a healthier way. No wonder she's beautiful ;)So now you know Bella. Why not make a date and let your taste buds fall in love?
