Wine Bar
Nestled next to Australia’s leading independent wine store, the Prince Wine Store, Bellota makes full use of the massive selection on offer from its sister business. The restaurant/wine bar brings to fruition a long-held desire to provide a venue that showcases the great wines of the world in a warm and friendly environment alongside beautifully executed food. Head chef Nicky Riemer champions the kitchen with her European cuisine which offers a sense of provenance and brings back flavours that often get lost in modern cooking techniques.

The casual, friendly atmosphere is at the heart of Bellota. Our knowledgeable staff’s aim is simple; try and help you love the wine as much as they do. Our list changes with the seasons and wines are all available by the taste, glass and carafe (half bottle), reflecting our belief that good and interesting wines are made all over the globe. We also offer a small selection of iconic wines, poured by the taste utilising the Coravin wine access system.

    Fantastic food, service and ambience. Love having the Prince Wine store as an option for wine but the wine list is also excellent.

    Just a terrific experience - friendly, well informed staff - a bottle shop next door - and some really interesting and tasty food. Top notch. Lovely vibe too.
