My partner and I have been to Italians all over the world and this Italian was not very authentic at all. We went based on the tripadvisor reviews and were very disappointed. The lasagne was just cheesy and stodgy and had no flavour at all and it was the House Speciality. I had a Margherita pizza that tasted like it... More

A little disappointed on our experience here given that La Tabella has a good reputation. We were one of 3 tables and our starter took over 30 mins to come out even though it was a flatbread. The quality of this was average given it was extremely crispy and tough to eat. Things did get better with the other courses... More

My partner and I had dinner at this restaurant 3 times during our stay! Beautiful seafood and extremely well priced for the quality! Highlights were the seafood linguine with fresh homemade pasta and a flavoursome sauce; the barramundi served with a creamy cauliflower sauce and I personally loved the panna cotta whereas my partners favourite was the tiramisu. We would... More

My daughter and I frequented this restaurant on our holiday because it was SOOOO good. The first time we came for lunch, water was promptly brought to the table, drinks orders taken at the same time and specials explained. I had a steak sandwich which really hit the spot and my daughter loved her fish and chips also. The food... More

Nice food, great location. One thing to complain about is that our meals did not come out together. There were 4 of us and 3 meals came out and waited another 15minutes for the 4th meal. To me it makes sense to bring all meals out together. When we asked we got told it was on its way only to... More

We celebrated our first year anniversary here this week. The Italian waiter and the food were both excellent. My wife had the ragu pasta, which tasted homemade.

Every time we go to La Tabella the service is exceptional. We get greeted with a huge smile, seated told of the specials etc. The food is simply fantastic every time and I love that. Sammy-Jo is brilliant in her attention to detail. The owners smile lights up any room. The view is grand the vibe is great. I cant... More
