This beautiful, honest food lends itself perfectly to the enjoyment of wine.

    Amazing good, great choice of wines, super fun music and amazing staff! A winner all around. The crab spaghetti is definitely a winner and a salami platter kicks off the night well

    Bellota never disappoints! Beautiful food, great service and a fully stocked wine shop next door. We're very luck to have this little gem as our local.

    Bellota on rainy day in Melbourne transports you to Europe quietly. The service is caring and the wine selections and cocktails delicious and the menu is exquisite.

    Always delicious food and the wine. They really should publish the vegetarian menu on the website as I would have brought my wife here previously if I had known about all of the options for her.

    Food was excellent and service even better. The wine cellar next door adds a great touch being able to choose from such a great range at cellar prices. Will definatly be back

    An amazing little spot, the food is outstanding and the service was great. The one thing I was disappointed about was that the party sitting next to us was extremely noisy.
