Dining Guide

Bella on the River

Tucked away beneath the Esquire Bar, Bella on the River is overlooked by most River Walk diners, except for those in the know (and those with reservations). The cozy, table-packed interior seems less like a building than a cave or grotto—maybe an underground cafe in a city far older than San Antonio. The menu circles the sea, with entrées from Spain to Morocco; we love the occasional “Ports of Call” meals, like the recent Isle of Corfu menu with whole grilled branzino. Chef Sean Fletcher’s seasonally changing menu is packed with fish, fowl, meats, and pastas, all served with interesting sides and sauces, such as the diver scallops with wild mushrooms, sun-dried tomatoes, leeks, and lemon thyme. The menu accommodates gluten-free and vegetarian diners too, with many suitable dishes.
