Easy to book and good choices in food, love the calorie detail on menu and views are amazing of the bull wall, wooden bridge. Good location although parking is premium.

Great location app says no parking but there is street parking no bother. A little bit cramped but worth it to get in and eat the delicious food.

Absolutely gorgeous dinner in a lovely environment. It was my pre-wedding dinner with my bridesmaid. The setting and food really made it special!

Staff seemed disorganised when it came to bookings. I was told 3 times they didn’t have the booking and was told the same on the day when I arrived despite getting text and email as a reminder of the booking and a phone call to them to confirm. Otherwise food is very nice and cute place to go for dining

Great service and nice food but more casual than I thought. Also the menu online is out of date, when we arrived and asked about this they said they could still make what we wanted but didn’t have the ingredients (for a beef omelette) that was the answer they gave anyway. Luckily there are other nice items on the menu and service was great and food was served really quick.

Booking not honoured by Bay. Very disappointed. I know I booked late but the point of this app is that you can do that. The manager at Bay was at best dismissive of the issue. Will not be back

Great location, great views accross the bay. Good atmosphere.
Food poor value, starter very tasty but presentation on plate poor. Main course came on cold plate, small portion and bland

Friendly welcome. Given a table in the conservatory area. Was a little on the chilly side but this was remedied swiftly when we mentioned it by switching on the heater. Starter of calamari was tasty and enough to share. The steak was nicely cooked if a little on the small side for 10ozs. A side dish of mash was cold but again remedied swiftly when we let the waitress know. The main of hake was one of the best hake dishes I have ever eaten and I eat a lot of hake. Beautifully cooked. Delicious sauce and veg to go with it. Will definitely be back for this again. A shared dessert of creme brûlée was tasty however at a price of 7.50 per dish I think it’s a little on the steep side. Service was excellent. Attentive without being over the top and quick to remedy any small issues. Lovely spot. Will be back again.

Very nice experience as always! Restaurant was busy but we still got that personalised attention we are used to getting while eating in BAY. Can't recommend it enough.

Food and staff were as good as always.
Staff are lovely & super polite.
I had the Moroccan chermoula for starter; it was spicy & tasty with a few juicy king prawns. I decided to go for the fillet steak & fries & when I said I wanted it rare it came perfectly rare. It is good value for money. One thing that I would like to be changed is the range is desserts. Very good overall
