    This was our third visit to Bella Vista cafe and the food was just as good as our previous visits. Unfortunately the weather was wet and windy so we couldn't appreciate the magnificent views. I highly recommend this cafe - its's a great find!!

    We go here once every 2 weeks for breakfast to catch up with family, its a nice way to do so, the food is good, sometimes a bit too much so we now just order basic eggs and bacon

    Fantastic view for five of our party of eight. Unfortunately three of us had our backs to the view and were seated on a bench that had no back. However, beautiful under the Morton Bay Fig tree and the food was good. Not noisy, we could all talk to each other which is rare these days. Definitely worth a visit.

    Great location and view. The staff are very friendly but we were there on a very busy day and service was a little bit slow. However, we weren't in a hurry. The food was very nice. It's a great cafe with a good range of choices on the menu.

    A really enjoyable family lunch, very relaxed and staff low key and very hospitable. Thank you it was perfect for what we were after. A great way to compliment the festivities of Christmas.

    Fabulous food and great service, in a beautiful location with views of Sydney Harbour. The caprese salad is absolutely gorgeous. Highly recommended.

    Beautiful position but understaffed for the Sunday lunch crowd. Four main meals were eaten before the 5th arrived! We were compensated but it was not acceptable

    We were pleasantly surprised by this cafe - the Italian food was absolutely delicious. The mostly international staff were friendly and good fun. We’ll definitely return!

    I recently booked a table of 10 for a friend's birthday party. We were late for the booking time due to traffic congestion. We were extremely grateful that the restaurant staff were very patient and very considerate. Even though we have lived in the city for 30-50 years, some of us have never been up to the North Head and have never been to the cafe. We had a wonderful time at the cafe with a view over the North Head. I am sure we will bring our friends, colleagues and international visitors here in the future. Thank you!

    I could smell the aged seafood coming from my pasta marina as the waiter placed it in front of me - a $10 fast food takeaway would have tasted better however I paid 3 times the price. There was too much marina sauce, possibly to try to disguise the seafood which if served the next day may have resulted in illness. No spoon came with my dish, and it was hard to get the waiters attention who was lovely, but too busy. Luckily the coffee and dessert from a limited menu selection were good, though I shared my friend's favourite dessert because I didn't see anything I personally preferred on the menu. But the waiter didn't tell us about the additional large selection of desserts on display at the counter which we saw when we took the bill to pay at the counter.

    Dear Sophie, Thank you for taking the time in providing your feedback. We are truly sorry that you did not have a good experience at Bella Vista. I can assure you that we would never serve produce - especially seafood, that is not fresh. Our seafood is delivered fresh everyday so I find it quite surprising that you felt it was not fresh. Also we did not receive any other feedback with the same concerns. I’m also sorry to hear that our home made desserts were not to your flavor. However there is a note ON the menu on the desserts page, explaining that there are “a selection of patisserie cakes, slices and pastries in the bar cabinet”. Please if we could use your experience to improve on what we do at Bella Vista, would you mind sending us an email at info@bellavistamanly.com.au to further provide us with your feedback and experience, and management will be in contact with you regarding your feedback. Thank you, Bella Vista Management

    The view is priceless but unfortunately the food was disappointing and expensive. We don't mind paying for good food but when the quality isn't quite there, it is unfortunate. However the staff was friendly but service slow, probably because it was very busy at the cafe.
