Food is nice and reasonably priced.the timber floor is noisy where pople have to go through to the toilets,not a big deal really but it's noticable.the place could do with a bit of atmosphere.there is no music in the background and the lighting is too bright.also the place could do with a lick of paint to get rid of that 80s time warp decor.
Just fixing simple things like this would greatly improve the experience.also the wairesses are efficent, as in they carry the food from a to b but they need to at least smile and be some bit friendly,who knows it may earn them a tip in future.
Bring your own wine is great,if they supplied an ice bucket for your wine at at table it would be brilliant .in my opinion ,all in all its a good restaurant and it could be brilliant with some of the issues above sorted.

My partner and I ate here a week ago. We regularly eat in bella cafe fermoy and absolutely love it, the food and service are second to none. We were in the area and decided to try bella cafe in mallow. Although the restaurant itself was lovely, clean, cosy, the service was appalling. We waited 20 minutes before ordering even though there was only one other couple in there. After finished our main courses we sat for 30 minutes while the waitresses chatted at the counter. My partner had to go and ask for menus to order desert and was just handed them at the counter, no apologies offered. The girls resumed the chat and ignored us for about a further 10-15 minutes. The food itself did not even redeem the place, not a patch on bella fermoy. We would not recommend it and would not be back.

I went to Bella Cafe for a Christmas get together. I had one of the pasta dishes and it was delicious. You can bring your own wine as they don't have a licence. The waitress offered to open any bottles we had brought with us. Everyone was very happy with the food and the desserts.
