We stumbled upon this place after taking our beloved quadruped Sweep (and his foster sister) for a lovely walk after the fortnightly market.

Set in a beautiful square, Beliao was just what we were looking for. Food and quick in a nice location that was dog friendly. Beliao answered yes to all those requirements.

The menu was vegetarian friendly too, which we liked. We had tomato soup with bread and vegetable quiche. The portion sizes were great. The tomato soup was tasty and fresh and the bread was too. The vegetable quiche was courgette and leek and was exceptionally tasty and came served with a massive portion of salad, coleslaw and thick potato chips. I had a eucalyptus tea too and the whole lot came to just under ten euros – so we felt like we’d bagged a bargain. They also had vegetable lasagne, meat lasagne, mozzarella salad, hamburgers, and chicken pie. For dessert there are puddings, cookies and cakes.

The waiter was sweet and spoke some English and overall the service was very good. It took a while for the food to arrive but it was definitely worth the wait.

The location is delightful and the surrounding lanes contain some gorgeous old buildings.

At night Beliao is particularly beautiful as strings of little lanterns illuminate the square.

A good find with some excellent options for vegetarians. Excellent location and very reasonable prices. Hoorah for Beliao!
