I have been visiting Gylly Beach Cafe for 7 years now as I live 5 minutes away and has always had a good reputation for food. Today I had fish and chips and was highly disappointed as the fish had not been skinned so was all slimy in the batter. The chips always used to be hand cut but no... More

This place was recommended to me by a friend and does not disappoint, Huge portions for the price, really tasty. Parking was ok we parked on a side road with no yellow lines opposite. Amazing views of beach and sea and right next to a walk way to another beach about a 15 minute walk, if you need to walk... More

Visited last night hoping to eat but were informed that there wasn't any available tables until 8.15pm. At the bar we were given the 'light bites' menu but were told if we wanted to order from this we would need to sit outside. Could not fathom why you were fully booked when there was 9 free tables inside and also... More

Hey 406collier, I am very sorry to read you review of your recent visit to us here at Gylly. The night in question we were fully booked with guests eager to come and dine with us, hence the reservations. You wanted to sit on Table 15 in the window which was reserved for someone else who was due to arrive... More

Hey Jan S, Thank you for taking the time to write a 4/5 review! We couldn't agree more about the draughty door, its a real pain, thats why before next winter we are extending our door way out so we will have 2 large double sliding doors to keep all that cold out! We welcome your return soon, Gylly x More

Hi my wife and I visited this restaurant for the first time recently and we were both very impressed. The food is great and reasonably priced for the quality of the dishes. The chef has recently appeared on Master chef and he produces dishes worthy of it.

My husband and I popped in here for a light snack and glass of wine mid afternoon. The weather was cold but dry and we were amazed to find the cafe full both inside and out. Despite the long queue we found a table for two and were served very quickly. There is a real buzz around with an eclectic... More

Went to the cafe because it was close to our accommodation but we're very pleased to enjoy some high quality food. The meat (one pork and one beef) was superbly cooked and the veggies has the appropriate mix of fluff and crunch. The baby carrots and parsnips were delicious. All this and a pint or glass of wine included for... More

We visited Gylly beach restaurant a few times over our weekend and can honestly say the food is top restaurant standard at a great price The staff know their stuff and are extremely friendly and I would especially recommend Sunday evening where you get a roast and a drink with live music overlooking the sea Heaven!!
