We went out with my daughter, son-in-law,granddaughter for sunday lunch. My husband and I had a roast beef dinner. We were very disappointed. The meat looked as though it was bought in slices and was not cooked fresh. The gravy was congealed. The best thing was the dessert. We paid top whack. The service was excellent, waiters very personable, nice... More

Sorry to learn of your disappointment that Sunday with your roast beef dinners- wish we had known at the time. Pleased you appreciated our levels of service and the freebie breads, chimichurri (and water). We cook in the morning and carve to order our striploins of beef along with all our other roasts whilst our gravy is also made in... More

Went for Dad's birthday lunch, great choice of food, including roast dinner. Service was great, polite, friendly and we didn't feel rushed despite the restaurant being busy. Will definitely be going back!

My husband & I have eaten at Bartellas many times. A table for eleven on a Saturday night, a table for two for many Sunday lunches and the odd table for two on a Saturday evening.We have never had bad service and the food is always very good. So good, we are taking two other members of the family next... More

This was my second visit for Sunday lunch at this restaurant. The ambience is pleasant and the staff are very good. I decided to plump for the roast lamb. I don't usually order roasts in restaurants as I find that they are never as nice as my home cooked roasts. This was definitely the case on Sunday. Although the meat... More

Thanks for your comments, sorry that your roast lamb dinner didn't match up to your high hopes but likely to be an issue when up against stiff competition! Had we known at the time of your preferences we could and would have swiftly organised a replacement meal. Always plenty of other non roast choices from our Sunday menu which partly... More

Excellent menu meat, fish and especially pastas, excellent service waiters very helpful with the menu, we were a group of 6 including 2 children very child friendly. The menu for gluten free was the best I have seen also veggie options, very busy but you was made to feel welcome and not rushed.

We went here last night for my sons 29th birthday. We ordered drinks first, I asked for the more expensive Sauvignon Blanc, and was bought the cheaper bottle which was opened and poured before I noticed. When I pointed this out I was given a dirty look and my wine was moodily poured back into the measure, without a hint... More

A foul mouthed "madam" who managed to embarrass both family and other diners seated close by once she had decided to turn up. Not sure what "top class places" she may have frequented whilst at work but she's not for us and never will be. Bet the son is looking forward to his 30th! More

Dropped in for Sunday lunch to celebrate husbands birthday. The interior is lovely and feels very intimate and relaxed. Service is professional and friendly. Chilean merlot super. Starters of thai mussels and egg flamenco were outstanding - would visit again for these alone. Main course of roast pork and calves liver a little less successful with a rather watery apple...

Many thanks for your considered comments- always helpful. I'd normally suggest some spinach with the liver, or on a Sunday maybe simply share a decent portion of the vegetable medley that accompanies the roasts. Hope to welcome you back soon. Regards, Ian More

Visited here the evening of 22nd October as a group of 4 (2 couples) The complimentary bread, dip and water was a lovely surprise when we arrived. We didn't have starters as we all opted for desserts instead! The food I had (surf and turf) was really quite nice (although quite salty) I liked the thoughtfulness of the finger bowl... More

Thanks Emma- pleased you enjoyed your evening and the small touches on your first visit to us. We should have noticed the issue with your friend's burger upon check back and certainly when clearing- my apologies. Hope to welcome you back very soon and get all that matters right then, meanwhile appreciate the recommendations. Regards, Ian More

I have been to Bartellas twice in the past month - once with a group of work colleagues, then as a family for my daughter's birthday.

A privately owned 175 seat restaurant with cocktail lounge and bar serving Mediterranean inspired food, Bartellas is a favourite of the charming village of Meopham. Elegantly appointed in wood and sisal, clean lines and contemporary furnishings, Bartellas offers comfortable and attractive surroundings plus excellent continental service including those little touches of linen napkins, predominately round tables, complimentary still and sparkling water and bread. The recent orangery extension and private dining salon upstairs for a maximum of 24 at one table ensures that whatever the occasion, Bartellas can cater for your dining and party needs. A regular changing a la carte menu, a Sunday menu with all the traditional roasts and the prix-fixe menu available Monday to Saturday lunchtimes and early evenings Monday to Friday offer great value for money- ��10.55 for one course including a 175ml glass of wine, small beer or soft drink.
