    Come here regularly and the food never disappoints. Their wine list is great, including their wines by the glass. South Melbourne’s best kept secret.

    The people at Bellota are so welcoming and personable. The menu is diverse, the quality is great; the food is wonderful. Great arrangement with wine cellar next door to select your own wine.

    I chose Bellota for a business lunch. We had excellent service and great advice from the Prince Wine Room next door for a suitable wine to our main course.

    Bellota is just spot on. Great food, professional staff, BYO from the attached wine store, just a delight to dine at. Can't wait to go back when we're out of lockdown.

About the restaurant

Nestled next to Australia’s leading independent wine store, the Prince Wine Store, Bellota makes full use of the massive selection on offer from its sister business. The restaurant brings to fruition a long-held desire to provide a venue that showcases the great wines of the world in a warm and friendly environment alongside beautifully executed food.

Former co-owner and head chef of the iconic Union Dining, Nicky Riemer champions the kitchen with her European cuisine which offers a sense of provenance and brings back flavours that often get lost in modern cooking techniques. This beautiful, honest food lends itself perfectly to the enjoyment of wine.

The casual, friendly atmosphere is at the heart of Bellota. The aim for our knowledgeable staff is simple; try and help you love the wine as much as they do.
