Homemade food doesn't get much better than this. At Obella, everything from the bread and dips to the desserts is made from scratch; that's right, we're off to the Med!

Located on idyllic Long Bay, Obella boasts stunning views that go on for as far as the eye can see. Taking on the form of an up-market conservatory, this eatery makes the most of its grassy surrounds with a wall made entirely of glass. Inside, you can't help the feeling of immense space, thanks to its sky-high ceilings and minimalist furnishings. Fusing the indoors and outdoors, it's a welcome haven from the mundane everyday.

Kick-off your evening the Turkish way - with some fresh bread and tangy dips. Sample a bit of everything, from their creamy hummus to the smoky baba ganoush and refreshing tzatziki. If you have some bread leftover, use it to soak up every last drop of the soup of the day. Alternatively, begin with the classic Greek salad with grilled halloumi and chicken if you so wish.

Among the mains are some absolute gems, like the seafood fettuccine which comes with mild sambal, a cream reduction and can be customised to suit vegetarians. If you're looking for rich and intense flavours, the Moroccan lamb tagine is cooked low and slow with heaps of herbs and spices whilst the Turkish Iskender showcases the best grilled meat in the house. Round it off with some of the best desserts the Med has to offer. Just remember to brush off any surplus pastry from your Baklava - it happens to the best of us!

Obella Long Bay would have to be one of the best places I've eaten in a very long time. Service was excellent, food was divine and staff are very nice. Can't wait to go back

We enjoyed a lovely evening at Obella in Long Bay. My friend and I ordered the Moussaka and Greek salad which had lovely flavours. I had food envy when I saw the lamb shank and the Turkish Iskender come out for our husbands - the plates looked nicely presented and the meal had the thumbs up from our menfolk! Come to desserts - the Baklava was recommended with fig ice cream and was a perfect finish end to our meal for 3 of us, and my friend had the affogato with served with a generous shot of kahlua. Just the location of Obella is lovely - it has easy parking, beautiful views, is a nice airy restaurant inside and the staff are very friendly. It was a shame that being a Saturday night there were not so many people because this restaurant deserves to be buzzing! It is definitely a place I would return to - maybe for brunch next time because the menu looks lovely :)

Four of us dined at Obella last night and the whole experience was fabulous. From the trendy decor, friendly waiter and jazzy background music to the outstanding food we enjoyed every minute of our evening there. Our meals were exemplary - the Crispy Duck Confit, Athenian Style Chicken Breast and Moroccan Lamb Tagine were bursting with flavour had great texture and cooked to perfection. Thank you Obella, we will be back!

The surroundings at Obella are light and airy and the ambience was quiet at our early arrival time which was perfect for a family dinner. We shared one of each of the tapa menu items and they were all delicious, but of particular note was the aubergine - superb. Dessert, we shared two between the four of us. Tiramisu was our favourite, but both choices were amazing. Also, the best Margarita I have had for a long time. Our waiter was from Istanbul and having been there, we could talk a little about Turkey and reminisce about our trip. The food really did remind us of our time in the Mediterranean. We will be back-soon!

We had such a lovely experience at Obella. Staff was super friendly, the restaurant is new and well designed, the (Wednesday) live music very enjoyable and a real bonus, plus the food was well presented and delicious. The Halloumi was our favourite. Would highly recommend, and will be back!

Amazing food and good old fashioned service with a smile! We loved our meals the other night in Long Bay at Obella - succulent steak, confit duck that was super delicious and the fish of the day (gurnard yay!) was heavenly! Hubby got a margarita - wow that packed a punch! Thanks so much gentlemen at Obella.

Fabulous evening! Right from the moment we sat down the staff were friendly, attentive, and fun! The food came out quickly (but not worryingly so) and the wine was right on time too! Two of us shared the seafood sharing platter, perfect amount for two of us, and the third of our party had a delicious steak. Absolutely fantastic for a girly evening out

Had wanted to try Obella for a while and really glad we did. The two gentlemen who looked after us were lovely and ensured we knew how things worked. Hubby and I shared a calamari starter which was yummy, cooked just right and served with a beautiful oil based dressing. I had the seafood fettucine which was delicious with plenty of fresh fish bits. Hubby enjoyed the Athenian style chicken breast and we ordered a side of rocket and parmesan and the grilled haloumi - both good additions to the meals. Thanks guys, really nice evening, we will be back

We arrived on a warm sunny evening and were given a choice of seating indoors or out. The staff were amazing and really friendly this made for a wonderful experience. The food was delicious. Will definitely return.

Great location and food tastes great. Ordered the platter for two. Seemed a lot but portion sizes were small and needed another small plate and desert. Apart from the size of the food portion it was very nice.

Very hospitable hosts. Went out of their two help us choose a table as it was still very hot and sunny at 5.30.
Beautiful presentation of drinks and meals worth every cent.
Definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone

Their mains were great, especially the duck dish. My kids loved the baklava too. The other desserts were average. Overall that was a nice experience.

Great experience and really great value at half price. Drinks starters and two mains for just under $70 and in a beautiful location to boot.

Decor and design of this venue is beautiful, with a fabulous early evening light coming through the open frontage. The background music was the best with acoustic guitar melodies, which had me tapping my toes within minutes! I cannot fault the food in any way, we both said it's the best meal out in ages. We had mussles and Prawns as our starters which were both finger licking good (literally). Mains I had lamb and hubby had sirloin with side of impeccably prepared veggies. Only thing was no one was expecting us, even though I had booked 24 hours prior, but this wasnt a problem at all we could pick any table we wanted, bonus! ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Our first time here
We ordered greek salad
Iskender which were not traditional which was disappointing .
The seafood fettuccine was lovely if not a little too creamy
Calamari tapas was nice.
The service was however fabulous.
