Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Supposed to be open, closed. Again. Second time in under two weeks. No sign, no warning on the website, nothing. Looks like they're still in business. Probably not for much longer though.

We went for dinner/date night at Norris and Bell and was blown away by the quality of food. Everything was amazing, the seafood was my favourite so fresh with great sauces to pair with. My partner could not stop raving about the tomahawk steak and...the seasonal veggies, he was in his happy place finishing every last mouthful. We could not fault anything about our meal and are already looking forward to our next night there!More

After recommendations from friends we booked a late table after the movies. Should not have bothered. Place was almost empty. Wait staff were slow and uninformed about the menu. Hubby ordered steak which was good, I sent my lamb rump back to the kitchen when...it arrived cold with white fat still obvious. Will not be back and wouldn’t recommend. Left hungry and disappointed.More

This place was an absolute delight, service was outstanding and the food was devine. We were three adults and two kids and everyone one of us loved our food and drinks. The lamb, eggplant, pasta, calamari and lemon tarts - its hard to choose a...favourite. Couldnt finish the delicious desert so took a doggy bag home. Very generous sized meals. We are so happy we came across this amazing place.More

Food was very disappointing. Service was slow and unfriendly waitress. Overpriced for less than average food.

We had such a nice night here! The food was fantastic, especially the tuna which was the fish of the day. The broth it came in was SO good- I could have drank it from the bowl! The only thing that let the night down...a bit was the service, it just didn't quite match up with the standard of the food. Either way I'm looking forward to coming back and trying more of the menu!More

We had a stunning meal here, after thinking that woodfired would be Pizza, we were tantalized by the steak cooked to Rare perfection, and the Eggplant with vichyssoise an alternative Vegetarian choice rarely seen on menu's. Beautifully presented desserts, Lemon meringue tart and Tropezienne. Martin...and Neel excelled in the kitchen under pressure of staff shortage conditions, so on a normal night it must be "off the HOOK"! Will recommend to friends and our guests for sure.More

Devine food that was beautifully presented. Staff were very friendly. Heating could have been turned up a notch, but otherwise faultless.

Quality food experience which was simple and uncomplicated. Sauces on steak, brocolli and bok choy all faultless. Fillet steak was superb as was the lamb rack. Cheesecake on point. Staff were friendly and easy going. I’d have rated overall 5/5 however the restaurant needed heating,...it was too chilly which impacted on the overall vibe for us. Lighting is good although on the dim side (which we like) so a candle would have assisted the atmosphere, and maybe warmed the place up.More

We had barely sat down and the waitress wanted to know what we wanted to drink and eat..... felt incredibly rushed. Made her come back 4 times for the food orders as we wanted to actually read the menu before deciding what we wanted. The...entrees were off to a great start .... the Paua Ravioli was just delicious but that's where it ended... we both ordered Steak for our mains... the presentation of our plates was terrible... a steak slapped on the place with a haphazard spoon full of sauce ... we both had the same sauce and his was at least double mine. The potatoes (lyonnaise style) were a pile of pale, slimy undercooked "things". Luckily we ordered sides. The dessert was bland and tasteless... it was a citrus cheesecake..... The wine list was very average and over priced.More

All I can say is WOW! My sirloin steak was perfectly cooked, my colleague ordered the mushroom tagliatelle which was also super delicious. The service was excellent and the prices were extremely reasonable for such a top notch restaurant. I’ll definitely be back.
