Very cosy restaurant, food and service were very good. Prices were a little high but this seems the norm in Dartmouth.

Took my mum here for her 80th Birthday meal and it was wonderful. Steaks were cooked to perfection, service was very good by a Romanian waiter( sorry didn't get his name). First time going in the evening and will be going back again. Highly recommend.

Really good meal, fish was beautifully cooked - a little pricey but worth it. Nice atmosphere. Our only minor issue was that service was too quick - felt a bit rushed.

Very charming old inn. We visited twice during our stay in Dartmouth and although I suspect it was a different chef on each visit the food was as food each time. Waiting staff very pleasant and helpful.

We stayed at Bayards Cove in February and came back for dinner while back in the local area this week. The food was as delicious as we remembered, with a varied menu, and the service very warm and welcoming. Dog friendly too, so our pup could join us.

Our evening at Baynards Cove was very good. There was a varied selection of food to choose from including the specials board. The food was good quality and very tasty throughout all courses.
Service was excellent from start to finish.
All in all a great evening with good food in a atmospheric restaraunt.
