    We had a very attentive waiter, probably too attentive!!! He tended to steer us away from certain things on the menu, which I’m not sure it’s his job too decide what we want to eat. Also there were things on the menu that they had ran out off, barramundi!!! Their sweet menu was a bit on the lean side for choice. Food was good, they were closing at 9.30 on a Friday night so almost asked to leave!!! On a Friday night!!

    Nice cosy restaurant that lacked good customer service and the food was fine. Seafood platter for 2 was poorly balance, luke warm and not worth the price tag unfortunately.

    Great Restaurant.Was lovely to sit outside as the sun set. It was unfortunate to have local bikies spoil the evening for diners as they continuously revved up the esplanade.Very frustrating Im sure for restaurant owners.Otherwise lovely dining- good serve of food and service pretty good.Perhaps only improvement could be size of table for 4 people dining.

    Tables were so close together you could hear your neighbours conversation. Food was very poor & I left feeling very disappointed for my $180. Wishing I had stuck to Estia!

    Specified in online booking and over the phone that I was vegetarian. They said they could cater to this for the Valentine’s Day menu. I get to the restaurant and they say there’s no vegetarian option for starters but I still have to pay for the course. So I paid $75 and missed out on an entire course while other people around me ate. Clarified with the server that I’d still have to pay full price and she apologetically confirmed this. Rip. Off. Won’t be back.

    The restaurant is right on the Henley square overlooking the jetty and the beautiful beach. They have good selection of Wine. Sipping wine with soaking up the sunset is just magical. Even when they are packed to the rafters the service is quick and friendly. Food is amazing. I've had brunch and dinner here. Never disappointed.

    We enjoyed our meal at Stella. The food was lovely. The service was fantastic with a very attentive waiter who put up with us being a bit awkward and asking to move tables and asking supplementary questions about the food. Sadly we couldn't find him to say thanks when we left.

    Has Stella changed ownership as this was a very different experience than previous visits. We ordered prosciutto pizza, crumbed fish and chips, ragu pasta and stuffed capsicum. Not one meal was of any standard and barely edible. The stuffed capsicum looked and tasted like it had been made by a yr 5 food tech class- filled with canned corn and mushy tasteless vegetables resembling some frozen mix. The ragu pasta was described as an ‘interesting’ texture and taste with the sauce resembling the taste of spaghetti out of a can. Our Indian waiter/ waitress were unapproachable and looked like they were doing us a favour by serving us. Absolutely no customer service at all. Meals took over 40 minutes to arrive. This will be our last visit to Stella - very disappointing!

    It is a lovely location, the staff were very friendly and accommodating so thank you. The only issue was that we both ordered fish and chips for our main course and the fish was exceptionally dry (overcooked) for both of us. Having said the the chips were fabulous and the salad was OK, we would have both preferred tartare sauce as opposed to aioli but I guess that is personal preference. Our waitress was very good.

    We are local and like to support local but won't be returning to dine at Stellas again. We had to ask three times for a beer to come to our table (wait around 40 minutes) and also the wait was around 90 minutes for our food. Whilst we understand it was New Years Day and the staff we busy this is still unacceptable especially when you have to pay a 15% surcharge for the public holiday on top of the bill. Food when it came was OK and the staff were friendly but overall we were extremely disappointed with our experience.

    This was a very disappointing meal. The poor service and very ordinary food was an embarrassment for us when entertaining our relatives from interstate. Once seated, we waited for at least 15 minutes before one of us had to ask to be served any drinks. The waitress appeared to be very inexperienced when taking our food order, and couldn't understand that we wanted to share some entrees. The main course serves were very large and we were told by the waitress that if we had entrees we should have ordered the children's menu for mains! The staff appeared to lack any training in hospitality! The view is amazing but it didn't make up for the unsatisfactory food and service. I would not recommend Stella as a place to eat in Henley Beach!
