Disappointing restaurant. The location is beautiful but quite honestly I've had better food on the flight over. Completely unimaginative. Friendly staff but we were given sparkling water when we didn't ask for it. Led to believe more alcoholic drinks were included in price when they weren't.

Each time we have visited the Bait, they have run out of steak. On this occasion, there were 6 in our party and the Bait only had 3 steaks available. Considering our table was booked for 7.30 pm and there were very few people in the restaurant, only 3 steaks was not acceptable. This has happened each time we have... More
