“A personal dining experience”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 April 2014

While staying in Beccles, I wanted to treat my family to a spot of fine dining, it was suggested that we visit the local Spanish style restaurant just 20 yards from the hotel, the experience was well worth the visit, the ambiance of the dining room put you in mind of dining at home with a personal staff assistance. The food was presented with what you might say as precision on a plate, very appealing to the eye, the starters tastefully prepared, then came the main course, once served we waited for a short while expecting a possible side dish of perhaps a green vegetable to accompany the dish, but then after a minute or two it was realised that this was the complete main course dish, very delicious it was too, very rich and because it was a rich dish, very small on the plate.
But again delicious just the need for a little something else (green red or orange) to add a bit of colour to the final presentation. And then came the deserts again presented with perfection, while the spent courses were being removed and the next course presented, the staff kept the party topped up without making you feel pestered, the deserts were shared and again the staff were very attentive and helpful, handing out additional plates a cutlery, the 3 chocolate dish was superbly presented on the plate, and again very rich I feel it could have possibly been accompanied by cream on the side or even a nice cream accompaniment. Overall a very pleasing dining experience. No buts!

“great place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 March 2014

lunch time 3 courses for £11.50 - superb imaginative food, daily changing menu, excellent service by proud Spanish owner who's wife runs the deli downstairs. Fine dining at weekends apparently - not cheap then, but looks like would be well worth it for a special treat.

“Inspiring and Spanish”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 March 2014

We are very lucky to have a great Spanish Restaurant and also that we have Xavier, the host. It is always very different and very exciting and fantastic that you can experience a completely different culture and food in the heart of Beccles.

“Always outstanding”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

If you fancy authentic spanish cuisine, slightly different then Bailey's will not disappoint. The propietor is a great host, excellent wine cellar and lovely ambience which is why the place has a regular and loyal clientele.

“Utterly superb”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

We visited Upstairs at Baileys for a Valentines Special; we’re used to the outstanding food here but this was the best meal we have experienced at this wonderful little restaurant. The food was exquisite; the service great; the menu imaginative - full of colour, taste and texture; the atmosphere delightful. Beccles is immensely fortunate to have a place of this quality – long may it last!
