Booking doesn't guarantee an outside table. Tables are allocated when you turn up so no point in booking. Entrees definitely better than mains and the tasting place of salmon and cerviche fabulous.

OMG I just got this in my in box from (I'm guessing) henchman or nom de plume "Dazza" who signs off exactly the same as KiwiChef... why would anyone else be so impassioned to personally email me because of my average review?!? "Rule number 1 Morons like yourself should stay home And watch master chef and can believe That you are a chef and food critic We don't want your type in our Resturaunts (sic) Cheers" Bel Cibo, If you can't take constructive criticism, get out of the game.

Sorry, I'm unaware of what you are implying I have no part in any witch hunt of messages toward you I do not know a Dazza. I can take constructive criticism quite fine, thank you. It's people's personal preferences that... More
Having reviewed the negative reviews of this restaurant it is clear the owner cannot take any criticism at all. Maheno - OCT 2015 wrote that she was unhappy as they were charged for a side dish that came after the meal wash finished and the owner stated she must be mistaken it cannot be his restaurant. Impossible for such a thing to happen in HIS restaurant. He then goes on to try and shift the blame onto ANOTHER restaurant!? I wrote a bad review for my experience at this restaurant earlier in the year and the owner attacks me for it. Even attacking my appearance in my profile pic! @ KiwiChef, people are entitled to write their opinions and complain if they have had a bad experience. Your response to those opinions and complaints reflects your customer service skills, your ability to take and handle criticism and just your general maturity. You attack every person who has a negative opinion about their experience at your restaurant. I'm sure if I go again I might have a better or even a perfect experience, but the time I visited I didn't and you shouldn't attack people who don't praise you, your food, staff and venue. Last thing, it's extremely low and scummy behavior to try and blame another restaurant for a bad review YOU received (as mentioned above). You actually say of the bad review "there is another Italian Restaurant in Port Douglas - Bucci, they seem to have many negative reviews on their TA page about food & service.I agree with you & just cannot fathom that happening here.Ciao" I notice it is not the first time you try to blame this restaurant. I'll be letting them know so they can report you. I'm sure you're going to have a charming and professional response ready for me after hearing some hard truth. I feel sorry for the poor staff member you're going to force to reply to this. I hope people catch on to you. Kiwi "Chef".
