Myself, my sister in law, my mother and my Nan were bought a groupon lunch deal for xmas here. We were waited on hand and foot by a lovely lady who couldn't do enough to make sure we enjoyed ourselves and the lovely waiter who didn't mind the many times we asked him to take a photo of us!

The meal that followed was excellent and the wines good . We managed the three courses and there was not a weak dish between us. The staff were... More

Excellent service from friendly and helpful staff. Interesting menu with top quality food. Three of us had fish as a main course and one had the ox cheek. All were excellent. Starters and puds earn top marks, and the cheeseboard was a meal on it's own.We will be visiting again soon.

We went on a busy Saturday evening, but they were most accommodating in changing our time and the service was excellent. It had a lovely ambience and the staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. We enjoyed all our food. The starter of mediterranean prawns was exceptional, beautifully fresh and tasty. Our calves liver was cooked perfectly, slightly pink,... More

This was a celebratory dinner with friends, a table for four. We didn't tell the restaurant the occasion, but all in all, It was the best meal I can remember having, period. On the top of that, the service was above and beyond anything I have enjoyed. We all had an excellent evening out, and I would recommend it.

There is plenty of room around the tables, the service is good and the setting is lovely. Food is good and the price is reasonable. We have also been on their entertainment evenings and these are very good.

My wife and I ate lunch here using a Groupon voucher, so had a slightly limited menu to choose from. We were not expecting too much, but ended up being very pleasantly surprised. The food was excellent and service was friendly but professional. We would happily go back and pay full price.

Thank you for your review following your recent visit to Bartellas.

We visited in a party of 14 people to celebrate an 80th birthday. The staff could not do enough for us, the service 1st class. The food was also wonderful and perfectly presented. Highly recommended.
