Bel & Brio
Disappointed that there was no white sourdough for breakfast. Waiters command of English was poor and consequently got the order wrong. This seems to be a common theme in Darling Harbour/Barangaroo restaurants
Hi Joel, Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. It is very disappointing to hear that the service was not up to its usual high standard. We will ensure further training is provided and we hope to see you again soon.
We were 7 not 4 persons. We had a wonderful time. My friends came from all over Sydney and they will be back soon
Great restaurant, great food

Very good service and nice atmosphere. The food was good for the price. Everyone in our group left satisfied.
Hi Wayne, so pleased that you had a fantastic time. We hope you'll join us for a meal or drink again soon!
Service was not that good. We were there 35 minutes before we were asked what we wanted..
Excellent restaurant. Great ambiance. Friendly staff. Excellent food and wine. Would definitely recommend.
Hi Bling, we're glad you had a wonderful dining experience with us. Thanks for the your kind words.
Service was appalling.
It’s Italian, so choose a pasta dish. You won’t be disappointed.
Hi Sandy, thanks for taking the time to post review. We really appreciate it.
Overall happy with place, food was really delicious but at busy time maybe more staff would help. But I’ll definitely come back
It was a very nice venue especially inside in the dining room. Service was great by all staff - everyone was very friendly. The food was ok. We ate from the A la Carte menu and we weren’t overly impressed by the taste unfortunately. The food just didn’t have amazing flavors so unfortunately it’s probably not someone we would visit again. Would say it’s worth a try though...
Thank you so much for taking the time to leave us a review and thank you for your kind words, I will pass on your notes to the Chef regarding the flavours. Just would like to let you know that we have recently changed our menus and it could worst it to give a second try! We hope to see you again at Bel&Brio.
The atmosphere was fantastic....like going into another world.....and the attendance and service of the waiters was first class....excellent knowledge of food with good humour thrown in.....food was top notch and very tasty...selection was very good for wines, drinks and food which made it difficult to decide, they seemed all good...we'll be back and we have told many of our friends of the great experinence
Thank you for your service. We loved the ambience especially the food and music.
Thank you for your kind words Ezzz and we are looking forward to hosting you again!
Not professional service , no next time

The service was good. The food and wine were great. I would definitely come here again. Great little spot in Barangaroo.
Dear Huw, Thank you for taking the time to leave us such a lovely review. We are looking very forward to hosting you again!
Bel & Brio is always free so I booked it but I must admit the service is shocking...
Dear Mitchi, thank you for taking the time to provide us with your honest feedback. It is very disappointed to hear that the service was not up to its usual high standard. Please accept our sincere apologies. Your notes will certainly be addressed in our weekly management meeting so we can continue to improve. Please give us another chance to show Bel & Brio the way it should be!
It was quite good value for the price. The salad leaves were a bit wilted and yellowish. We had the pear and rocket salad. The pizza was good. The service was good.
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your honest feedback! I am very glad you enjoyed your evening with us and I will certainly pass on your notes to the chef to keep improving. We hope to see you again soon!
Great service, great breakfast and an ideal place for an early morning business meeting.
Thank you Martin for taking the time to leave us a review and Thank you for your kind words. We hope to see you again very soon!
Fabulous staff and food. Our booth tucked away in another room was an absolute delighter.
Thank Andy for taking the time to leave us a review and thank you for your kind words. The booth seating in Corso Brio is absolutely amazing! my favourite seat! We hope to see you again very soon!
Food was lovely with decent size portions. Our waitress was less than impressed to be working and never smiled
Thank you Rachel for taking the time to provide us with your honest feedback. It is disappointing to hear that the service was not to its usual high standard. Please accept our apologies and we hope to see you again very soon.
Fantastic food and service, made for a wonderful lunch that we all thoroughly enjoyed.
Would highly recommended to anyone!
Thank Penny for taking the time to leave us a review and Thank you for your kind words. We hope to see you again very soon!
The food was amazing however I was disappointed when the staff began cleaning and putting away the tables around us as we were finishing dinner. You’re either open or you’re closed. It’s not at all a nice feeling to be eating dessert while the tables around you are being stripped. The staff also were arguing loudly with one another right beside us. It just put a bad end to what started as a wonderful evening.
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your honest feedback. It is very disappointing to hear that the service was not to its usual high standard. The team certainly did not mean to make you feel this way, our sincere apologies if this was the impression given. This issue will be addressed to our weekly management meeting to ensure further training is provided. Thank you for choosing to dine at Bel & Brio and we hope to see you again!
What a gem of a restaurant. I visited the bar restaurant with out of country colleagues on a Thursday evening and were seated outdoors to enjoy the beautiful weather. The food was fabulous from the appetizers (bruschetta) to the entrees (tagliatelle and beef shoulder were delish) - everyone enjoyed their meals. We weren’t rushed even on a fairly busy night. The only nit I can call out was that the service provided by the waitress was uneven. She appeared rush and disappeared at times. However, the other staff members picked up the slack. All in all, best meal in Sydney.
Dear Peas, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your honest feedback! I am very glad you enjoyed your evening with us and I will certainly pass your notes to the chef. It is very disappointing to hear that the service was not to its usual high standard. We recently had new staff members, we will definitely address this issue to our next weekly management meeting. We hope to see you again very soon and thank you again for dining at Bel & Brio.
Food and ambience were great. Service was slow and the waitress outside seemed run off her feet despite there being waiters in abundance inside.
Thank you Sophia for taking the time to provide us with your honest feedback. It is very disappointing to hear that the service was not to its usual high standard. The team certainly did not mean to make you feel this way. Thank you for choosing to dine at Bel & Brio and we hope to see you again.
Went here for Valentine's day and we had a great time and filled stomachs. We had the 7-course degustation menu which is worth it. Since it is a 7-course meal, expect to be full halfway. Though I would say all dishes were delicious so it became a little sinful especially with the dessert. It got a bit loud during the night because of the number of people dining but it wasn't an issue. I would highly recommend Bel & Brio.
Thank you for your kind words! We are so pleased you enjoyed your Valentine's day dinner with us! I will certainly pass on your notes to the team and we hope to see you again very soon. Thank you for choosing to dine at Bel & Brio.
Excellent service and beautiful food served in a very serene environment.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and thank you for your kind words!
Really nice atmosphere and great food we had a wonderful birthday lunch with my fussy family and all very happy
Dear Isabelle, Thank you for your kind words. We are so glad you've enjoyed celebrating your birthday lunch with us! We hope to see you again very soon.
Food is great, and the service is also excellent. Unfortunately, the noise level inside is way too loud ... there is no sound-deadening material so it is inherently loud (concrete floor, blank walls, glass windows, all "reflective" of sound)-- but on top of that they play jarring music way too loud given it is doof-doof beaty unmelodic music. Please change the music to something softer and more melodic in style, and turn the volume down several decibels ! It's not a disco !!
Dear James, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with your honest feedback. Your notes will certainly be addressed to our weekly management meeting so we can continue to improve. We do hope to see you again very soon.
Me and my friend had a chance to eat in the bar area. There was a great atmosphere, nice music and very sunny. We anjoyed the food and the service. Tasty italian food and warm service made our experience unforgettable. We will be back surely.
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review. We are so pleased you've enjoyed your time with us. Our team will be very happy to hear your kind words. We hope to see you again soon.
I've been there already many times in the last months.
You can laterally live in Bel and Brio.
I've tried both, dining experience with my wife and bar/bistro side with some mates.
Food to die for, and the spaghetti crab... the best!
And the pizza is an authentic one.
Drink side you have everything, wines, beers, spirits, classic and signature cocktails.
Service professional and charming.
The ambiance is top notch!!!
Cellar with a broad selection of wine in their cellar (some really rare french and italian).
Marketplace with premium and every day products in the market.
What a lovely review Daniele! I will pass on your words to the team, they will be thrilled to read this! We hope to see you again very shortly.
Location, food, service and knowledge.
It is not often you get all of these things these days. Location is sensational, food is some of the best I have eaten anywhere in Sydney the service is attentive and friendly and they know their stuff. The staff know what’s on the menu and take you on a journey through their Italian delights. The Wine list is exceptional some rare gems on this list. The staff know their wines the information and pairing advice we received was amazing.
I think we have found our new favourite restaurant.
Thank you for your wonderful feedback! the team will be delighted to hear from your kind words. We hope to see you again soon.
Amazing service, atmosphere and food! Will be coming back
Thank you Kristina for taking the time to provide us with your honest feedback! We hope to see you again very soon.
Awesome place! Must do in Barangaroo! Delicious food, amazing wine selection and great service! But Bel & Brio is not just a place to eat, they also have a Marketplace with a delicatessen where you can find rare fine delicate European foods and condiments and they have their own cellar with a huge variety of wines. Would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for something unusual!
Dear Mylena, Thank you for your kind words, we are very glad you've enjoyed your meal and we hope to see you very soon again.
Sometimes, a restaurant will totally turn off a customer with the constant pushing of more drinks and extra items that cost MORE! It is done to look as if it is all about customer service but it's hard to pull the wool over this New Yorker's eyes. When a waiter, no matter how nice and helpful and professional,
stretches the truth to the customer in order to get a tip, it is a total turn off. Because we are New Yorkers we are used to tipping the wait staff and so asked as the inclusion of the meal if the tip was included. Our waiter didn't really lie when he said, that it wasn't. It is just that tips are not given to waiters in Australia, something we found out afterwards from our local friends and something we should have checked Before we went to Australia
Dear guest, thank you for taking the time to provide us with your honest feedback. We are very sorry that you left the evening on being disappointed by your experience. We can assure you that all staff members from Bel & Brio are part of a family and they are all well fairly treated. We do hope that this has not deterred you away from dining with us again as we would love to see you .
Ordered a steak and was unable to eat due to extensive gristle throughout. I told the waitress and she had no response. Seafood was much better should have stayed away from the meat.
Dear Jeff, thank you for taking the time to provide us with your honest feedback. It is such a shame to hear that you were disappointed by one of our dishes. I will certainly pass on your notes to the chef in our weekly management meeting so that we can review this and continue to improve. We hope to see you again.
Great lunch spot, menus and location. Loving the vibe and the desserts are just divine!
Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and thank you for your kind words, I will pass on your notes to the Chef. We hope to see you very soon again!
Amazing service by Bruno an Karlos.
Food is amazing!
Dessert mouth watering.
Hawaiian sunset is addictive.
Hendricks Gin was on point served with cucumber and rose petals. I have been living in Australia for the last 10 years. Had never experienced Hendricks Gin served the correct way. Overall all amazing place to dine
Dear Sharni Thank you for taking the time to leave us a review and thank you for your kind words. I will pass it on to the team. We hope to see you again very soon.
Great atmosphere - just too many flies, flying around us and our client's head (we were inside the very inside area).
Thank you Katherine for your honest feedback. We sincerely apologise for the flies. When we constructed the new dining, the air temperature needed balancing and we never got the chance to get it done during the festive season, which in return made it an amazing atmosphere for the fruit flies. We have now managed to get the air balanced and I assure you there won’t be any more flies flying around anyone’s head. We hope you can forgive us for the inconvenience cause and hope to see you again.!
The food, service and ambience are excellent - we love dining in the restaurant as we appreciate all it has to offer from great dinner music to quiet, intimate booths. We highly recommend Bel & Brio!
Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback. Bel & Brio team will be very delighted to hear from your kind words! I personally love the booth seating in our restaurant room Corso Brio. It makes the experience romantic and unique. We hope to see you very soon.
