I had the risotto and was very disappointed that it was tasteless. I had to put much salt and pepper on it to be able to eat it. The noise was terrible and the dessert was definitely overpriced.

The service, food and location were all excellent. The staff were friendly and very helpful, suggesting dishes and wine from the menu. We had a selection of entrees, a main, sides and dessert to share including oysters, the meat plate, rainbow trout, roast potatoes, mix greens and a chocolate and hazelnut mousse with gelato. Everything was amazing and we will definitely be back. Recommend asking for a table next to the window overlooking the garden.

Perfect dinner for a perfect getaway at Bells Killcare . Pasta dishes were delicious and well presented. Gelati and panda cotta desserts were generous and yummy. Service was efficient and non intrusive.

The degustation menu was excellent, good choices, with great service and flexibility for allergies. The pace was very good, plenty of food served over a couple of hours. Highly recommended.

Not being from the Central Coast it was our first time at Bells and I was thoroughly impressed with all facets of the establishment. We will be back and will recommend Bells to whoever I advise CC restaurants to.

I was disappointed. I’ve lived on the coast for years and Bells has a great reputation. Service was great but very limited menu both for locals night and spring menu. Food was good but definitely not outstanding which was what I expected. Not sure what all the hype is about.

We've had lunch here several times over the past 5 years and enjoyed the range of meals and excellent service.

This was our first dinner at Bells to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary.

The service was friendly but not exceptional as previous visits. Eg.
• No complimentary chef starter was provided 😦
• We were not offered any additional bread 😯
• The empty bottle and plates were not cleared promptly even though the wait staff had been back a couple of times to top up the water 😐
• The wait staff had no knowledge of our visit and special dessert request even though it was noted in the online booking 😕

The dinner options was somewhat limited and pricey.
We shared a main sized pasta dish for entree. The noodles were very long and thick and quiet difficult to eat. The tomato based sauce was lacking seasoning and required a good hit of sea salt and pepper. No parmesan cheese or ground pepper was offered 😣
The flavours and presentation of the mains was very good.
The dessert range is good. I had the 3 scoops of gelato/sorbet. It was delicious, but the accompanying biscotti was way to thick and almost a tooth breaker 😐
My wife had the cassatta which we've had many times previously and is her favourite. Unfortunatley, this chef has changed it 😯 the raspberry centre was very small and the pistachio praline has been replaced by a biscuit crumb 😣

The latte coffee was ok but no accompanying biscuit was served as in the past 😣

The ambience was ok but unfortunately there was a table of two nearby that had an annoying loud laugh and a frequent 'smokers cough'.

Overall we had an ok time but think lunch is a better experience. We only hope that the chef / management hasn't changed the lunch menu too much.

Locals night at Bells on Tuesdays delivers value plus with two courses and a glass of wine for $45 per head. There was no compromise with the quality of the food and adding a dessert is just $10 extra. There is no better quality and value than this on the coast. Very happy to recommend Bells restaurant.

An excellent evening for our group of 10 on the "locals night". The staff were very attentive and the food was amazing, with a good choice for everyone. We had a great time and would certainly recommend Bells to everyone.

Had 14 guests for the family feist on Sunday and returned with my wife this week for locals night.
We are always greeted warmly. Food and wine are extremely good.
The level of service is consistently high.
Highly recommended.

We had a beautiful experience last Friday (31/5/19) at Bells.
I was celebrating 30 years of friendship with my two friends and we went for the Fish Friday deal which was superb!
Fantastic meal and wine... and I must say that our waitress, Zoe, made it a day to remember.
She was fabulous to say the least. Through our conversation with Zoe, she found out that we all had started flying together exactly 30 years ago to the day, hence our celebratory lunch.
Zoe asked the chef to write 'Happy anniversary' on a plate and along with 3 yummy chocolates she delivered them to us with our tea...what a lovely touch!
Above and beyond service..... Zoe is a real asset to Bells....treasure her...she's the epitome of excellent customer service. Thank you.....we hopefully will be back soon :)
