My wife and I visited Bella Bellota on a Sunday afternoon in April and were pleasantly surprised by the wide variety of sushi offered. We ordered a second round. The service was attentive and knowledgeable. The prices were just right. We will be back soon.

We wanted to make use of the 50% Sunday afternoon sushi special. We were a group of 6. The service was terrible and wrong sushi was made. The waiter even swore in front of us. We will not go back.

One of my favorite places to eat pizza! Very nice food, good service. I would recommend to avoid this place on weekends because is very busy and the service might be a bit slow. Go during the week and you we'll get the best experience.

I attended a birthday dinner. We had a table of 8 people. It took forever for a waiter to attend to our table, then it took ages for our drinks to be delivered. We had to call for service allthough there were more than enough staff. Food, although very good, also took forever to be served. I won't be easily... More

Food was awesome and kids had a great time, but service was awful. We had to call the waitress over every time for everything we wanted. She didn't know her menu and there was no management presence. Got a feeling staff didn't care and there was no enthusiasm or passion. Will only go back for take aways!

The restaurant changed their interiour, and lost its homely look. The food is still very good and the spare ribs Best in Town. Bit quiet nowadays. In summer you have to book, specially if you want to sit outside. Good food overall.

What more can I say? Truly and honestly felt as if I wasted my time. Actually went to another restaurant for dessert. A pity Paarl is a bit strapped for choice.
