Bellagio has recently opened its doors at the new trendy hot spot - The Blubird Centre and is already receiving rave reviews for its interesting dishes which comprise mainly of fish and seafood. The menu is simple and seasonal. The food is unpretentious focusing on the best quality and appeals to a broad audience.Owner Louise Castle is not new to the restaurant industry and was the brains behind the very successful Ricardo’s in Hyde Park for seven years before she sold it. Louise has traveled the world extensively, attending cooking courses and tasting the foods of the world before returning to South Africa where she became a full time mother to her twin daughters. The restaurant bug still in her, she was offered the opportunity to start a new restaurant - Seventy Four which she sold after a year and a half. Then the perfect space came about and she couldn’t resist and Bellagio was born! Louise managed to recruit many of her old staff from 74 and Ricardo’s and the rest the say is History! Bellagio is stylish and chic but has a wonderful relaxed and casual feel to it. The wicker chairs and dashes of red coral fabric, blue stripes and hand carved fish are eye-catching. The patio is definitely the place to sit with views over the local park and willow trees. Lovely blankets are on the back of the chairs to keep off the winter chill. The menu has something for everyone wonderful salads, calamari served a multiple of ways, the freshest of fish and seafood and exciting pasta dishes which include the likes of salmon, caviar and crab, soufflés and lobster tempura Other favorites include homely fish pie and fish and chips. There is also a sushi and tepennyaki bar. There is also a special board which changes. On Saturday and Sundays Louise adds an amazing buffet table to options on offer. Bellagio is open for lunch and dinner Monday to Sunday and is definitely the pace to be seen. The perfect spot for a ladies lunch or a business meeting and a buzzy place to entertain friends at night!
