It’s the little things that add up. Oysters were fresh but weren’t shucked properly so was still attached to the shell. So when trying to pry them from the shell it basically ripped the oyster. At $5 each why not just shuck them properly?
The steak tartare was made table side (not really sure why?) but there was too much mustard which overpowered the whole dish. The complete let down was the seafood boulliabiasse. For $37 the shellfish was overcooked almost inedible although the fish was cooked really well, and the soup was very salty and unpleasant. Lemon tart for dessert was Ok, but tasted as if it had been in the fridge for a couple of days. Perhaps they should also change their menu, as some of the dishes have been there for a long time and quite frankly pretty boring. Really not worth the hype or the money

Most enjoyable lunch. Great food and service. Only negative was the noise level. It was loud and noisy from other tables. More sound-absorbing materials should be used in the restaurant.

The Wild Flower Bar & Dining at Bells at Killcare was exceptional. The food and service were excellent. The wine list was extensive, probably the best restaurant on the Central coast. Thank you for a wonderful dining experience.

We’ve been to Bells four times over the last couple of months and the service has always been impeccable. The cocktails are served in an exciting and inventive way and are absolutely delicious. My fiancée’s moussaka was incredible. My only criticism is that I’ve had the seafood bouillabaisse twice and both times it was exceedingly salty. The second time I couldn’t finish it. 4.5 Stars!

Our experience was unpleasant. We had to wait over an hour for any food to be brought to our table. They clearly had forgotten our order. The staff offered us a free dessert, which was not part of our original order. We would’ve preferred a discounted entree. Our first dish was a prawn pasta that contained only two prawns in the whole dish. Our main was a snapper special that the waiter failed to describe at all. We had to de-bone the whole snapper ourselves, if this had been mentioned, we would’ve changed our order. The staff were not apologetic. This restaurant was extremely expensive for the subpar service. I would not recommend.

The atmosphere was very nice. And the food was tasty and produce was fresh. The service was ok - we were served by a new waiter I suspect but he tried his best. Kids menu - pasta with cheese was ok.

Fabulous lunch. Shared a few entrees including school prawns, my favourite ever steak tartare and an excellent octopus dish and each had a main - 3 had the fish of the day which was very good I understand but you need to be apt at taking it off the bone! I had the bouillabaisse which was superb and the steak was great. Charming service and lovely setting. Perfect!

Consistently good meal. Beef cheeks are to die for. Wine selection is great. The waiter was excellent - good polite service without being too fussy. The ambience was excellent considering the physical distancing requirements. Maybe this spacing can be kept into the future. All together a very enjoyable dinner.
