I went to Bellota last Friday 5th January and all the service was amazing. The food was fabulous and the musician performance OMG, that was great. The music made all the experience 1000 times better. Cheers for the acquisition of that musician!

I love tapas when not too hungry and wanting to sample several things. The two of us ordered 3 tapas including octopus and goat cheese. It was the perfect amount and very tasty.

It was great to sit down at the Bellota Bar at the Sky City on Friday for a beer and listen to Ge Luz. The Federal street was busy, the bar was packed of beautiful people (but not crowded) and the beer / appetizers combination...More

With a few colleagues we wanted dinner near the sky convention centre. Bellota welcome was good and got into a nice booth. Staff friendly but the food just wasn’t there. Paella ok but lacking flavour. Two mixed platters weren’t great: fried stuff lacking crispness and...More

This restaurant has certainly gone way down hill. It doesn't matter what time you go there the food should always be the same great quality. So was the time their reason for poor food quality- because it was 9pm. They did not discount the food...More

Description
Bellota is the Spanish word for acorn and it's the acorn that plays an essential part in the creation of one of the world's most prized delicacies - Jamón Ibérico de Bellota (literally Iberian ham of acorns). The Iberian pig used to live all over Spain, Portugal and many parts of the Mediterranean, but due to the decline in its natural habitat, the dehesa (oak forests), they are scarce - and needless to say - incredibly expensive. They're also very smart pigs. We want you to have as authentic a tapas experience as you'll find in Auckland. Our head chef Ernest Pietx is from Barcelona and he is always updating the menu with seasonal twists. Our wine list is exclusively Spanish. We source many of the wines ourselves from little-known producers. Bellota's front of house is run by Chilean born Carlos Delgado and consists of a mixture of lovely and bubbly people, many with Latin and Spanish roots. Saludos y disfrute Peter Gordon
