Muy Bien! Love this place! We had a few different tapas, and they were all delicious, especially the prawns! The patatas bravas were delicious, and way bigger serving than i expected. Would definitely recommend, and will be back!

A firm favourite that we return to each time we are in Auckland. The Charcuterie platter, Goats cheese balls are a must accompanied by a nice bottle of Spanish wine. Staff are excellent

This restaurant is in Federal St, opposite the Sky City Grand hotel. We had been recommended the food, apparently it has a famous chef. And the recommendation was absolutely spot on. The gnocchi might be the best we have ever had, the pork belly was...More

Bellota is the Spanish word for acorn and it's the acorn that plays an essential part in the creation of one of the world's most prized delicacies - Jamón Ibérico de Bellota (literally Iberian ham of acorns).

The Iberian pig used to live all over Spain, Portugal and many parts of the Mediterranean, but due to the decline in its natural habitat, the dehesa (oak forests), they are scarce - and needless to say - incredibly expensive. They're also very smart pigs.

We want you to have as authentic a tapas experience as you'll find in Auckland. Our head chef Ernest Pietx is from Barcelona and he is always updating the menu with seasonal twists. Our wine list is exclusively Spanish. We source many of the wines ourselves from little-known producers.

Bellota's front of house is run by Chilean born Carlos Delgado and consists of a mixture of lovely and bubbly people, many with Latin and Spanish roots.

Saludos y disfrute

Peter Gordon
