Been many times to the Bay. Food is always good, with good choices. Wine list could be better. Service friendly and efficient. Would recommend a visit. Get a window seat if the weather's good or even sit outside on the terrace.

The standard of food is up with Penzance's other quality restaurant The Shore. The outlook over Penzance and Mounts Bay is wonderful. The service was good though the staff seemed a little inexperienced. Well worth a visit.More
