Friendly staff, who were very caring under difficult personal circumstances during our visit. Coffee was consistently good. We had a tapas dinner and really enjoyed all the different dishes. Especially the calamari.

We were very lucky to have breakfast at Bellakai just before the Commonwealth Queen's Baton passed along at 7 am on 3 April. Great "special" scrambled eggs and best coffee in Coolangatta. Staff are wonderful.
