Next I shared a mixture of the tapas and an amazing Pork main! Please get the Gambas its to die for! To finish, the best... More

Thought we would have a light lunch in here today, walked through to the rear of the cafe, tables empty but not cleared so walked back to the front of the cafe and sat for a good 10 minutes with no acknowledgement whatsoever. We gave up and walked across to Twyfords and got service with a smile from the word... More

The place to try in Beccles for tasty food in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. Xavier the owner is a welth of food knowledge with the welcome of a long lost friend. All in all a superb place to eat, and when you are finished you can make a few treat purchases from the deli downstairs.

I have been going to Baileys for many years now, every time I pay a visit to my mother in law. It is for me the best restaurant in the area, with great food that always surprised me and delicious. The recent change to a more Catalan oriented menu does not disappoint. Fantastic tapas and great mains. Javier is as... More

Had an evening meal here with another couple. We had a classy Spanish meal, with great tapas. The maitre'd, and I think the owner, Xavier was a font of knowledge. When, our awkward, piscene, but no shellfish, friends asked for modifications, the resulting monkfish was to die for. I had the beef cheeks, which were delicate and flavoursome at the... More

We had a wedding nearby so booked a table for a Friday night on the August Bank Holiday weekend. The food was excellent and the service equally good. If we're ever in the area again, we would definitely go back.

7 friends and I travelled from Norwich for lunch at this delightful restaurant (upstairs, with deli on ground floor) today. The Spanish owner was very engaging and very proud of the food his Catalonian chefs produce - quite rightly so. I chose a Caprese salad, followed by pasta with the most delicious tomato sauce, and then chocolate tart (like I've... More

A unique and hi-class bistro restaurant above a great delicatessan, owned and run by a husband and wife team (Xavier and Linda), together with a hi-class Catalan Chef (and their staff). Xavier is very particular about standards and customer service. He makes sure that table-waiting staff never leave finger-prints on the edge of the dishes. We also saw Xavier's attention... More
