Description: C-Bay Café/Bar/Bistro opened in October 2013 and sits with an unsurpassed view over Crantock Beach and the coastline beyond. The café feel during the day is enhanced by delicious breakfasts, home-baked cakes and savouries, fresh 'Olfactory Coffee' and iced smoothies - with regular updates on our Facebook page to tempt you through the doors! Lunch consists of a variety of ciabatta's, sandwiches and chicken, fish and vegetarian options together with more substantial meals such as burgers and fish & chips. Our traditional Afternoon Tea, served with Tregothnan tea is also not to be missed or our Cornish Cream Tea served with Rodda's cream and Boddington's strawberry jam. Our more sophisticated evening menu incorporates locally sourced seasonal ingredients to create mouth-watering dishes with Cornish and British influences, alongside popular dishes such as our classic 'C-Bay' burger in a Baker Tom bun and locally caught sustainable fish. You can choose to dine in C-Bay, on the huge sun terrace or in the garden - wherever the mood or occasion takes you. Wherever you are, you can be assured of stunning views across Crantock Beach and the coastline beyond and due to our close proximity to the South West Coastal Footpath, we are happy to welcome dogs to C-Bay too! Christenings, Weddings, Anniversaries or Private Parties are catered for all year round. Please call 01637 830229 to discuss your requirements and preferred date. We are open every day (10am-9pm) although evenings will be limited during the winter months.

We found C Bay by accident - and what a lucky accident it was. After a long and exhilarating cliff walk, C Bay is extremely inviting and a great place to have a meal or a snack, or just a drink, if you're able to resist the food! The menu is varied and quite extensive, offering lunch items and a different menu for dinner. We have had lunch and dinner there and both were excellent. The sharing platters (olives, humous...) are excellent value for money.
The decor is fresh and bright, in blues and whites. Comfortable chairs inside and out. Dogs are welcome and usually aplenty. Jasper (their own dow) is quite famous already, judging by the rest of the reviews.
The management and staff are very friendly and accommodating.
The views are, next to the food, probably the most important feature! C Bay overlooks Crantock Bay from an impressive height and offers incomparable scenery, which can be enjoyed from the patio or inside the restaurant alike.

We own a nearby apartment. This is virtually three different restaurants with breakfast, lunch and dinner menus. All are delicious. We have had all three meals here more than once. The coffee is some of the best I have ever had (and I have been to Japan, Italy and Melbourne). The English tea is from Tregothnan. The bacon is crispy, the locally baked cakes delicious, the scrambled eggs just right. Lunch and dinner are good to. There are wines beers, soft drinks, smoothies. The staff are friendly especially Jasper, the canine maitre d'. And the view is one of the best in Cornwall. We had twenty people here for my birthday in April. Wonderful service.

Went to C-Bay around 3-4 times in the week's holiday both for lunch and dinner. It has excellent relaxing decoration and a stunning view of Crantock Bay and with Bi-Folding doors across the end, it feels just as good eating inside as outside on the terrace on a sunny day. C-Bay is dog friendly and sits on the edge of an all year round dog friendly beach. The food was excellent both at lunchtime and dinner and the presentation of the evening meals was of a standard expected in a much larger restaurant, although at a much more reasonable price. Highly recommended.

Visited this stunning restaurant today with relatives who live in the area.
From the magnificent scenery to the fresh modern decor,there wasnt a thing I did not like. You must try the delicious cheese scones,cream cheese and super red onion preserve, this was only bettered by the friendly efficient service given by Emma and Hazel who made us feel very welcome
Will definitely return. THANKS Anne B

This is a gorgeous little restaurant, which me and my partner visited as a result of all the other excellent reviews. We both had a beautiful meal, which was reasonably priced and served by happy staff. If you are in Crantock then do not miss out.
