Description: Mark and Debbie are really excited to announce that they will soon be opening their new cafe restaurant in the heart of Mevagissey. They have taken over the existing cafe at Market Street renaming it the 'Number Five Cafe Restaurant' and after a quick splash of paint hope to be opening after half term. We hope to see all our old Bay View Restaurant customers and many new ones for breakfasts, snacks, lunches, afternoon teas, cakes and evening meals over the whole 2015 season. Substantial new menus have been designed by Mark to take advantage of their all day opening times. They will be serving home cooked, freshly prepared food with an infusion flavoured menu to reflect the incredible cornish coast and countryside around. All our produce is fresh and sourced from local suppliers wherever possible. Our cakes and scones are all made here on the premises. Cooked dishes are freshly prepared to order and if you have any special dietary requirements don't hesitate to ask Debbie. We serve a selection of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes; and can cater for vegan and special dietary needs on request. Best wishes

“A fabulous meal !”
Reviewed 30 July 2014

We ate at the Bay View last night. The food was really excellent. I had the whole Dover Sole as a main, it was superb. My wife had the Langoustine salad. They dont stint with the crustaceans !
As a family of 4, we know the value of eating a 3 course meal in a restaurant or pub. I can only say this is excellent value for money. All of the meals had been prepared and presented with care and looked as good as they eat.
We have booked to go back on Saturday.
The service was really good too. Very good tip from previous review, parking limited, so go around the corner and park up the hill or in the parallel road.
Stunning views over the bay. - If you have the chance to eat here take it.

“Very good indeed!”
Reviewed 24 July 2014

Had a lovely meal here on 23rd July, served by very friendly and efficient staff. While my starter of Tikka Scallops and chocolate mousse were good not great, the main course of melt in the mouth sea bream with butternut squash and samphire was stunning, not to mention the "dolphin"(aka dauphinoise!) potatoes, which I could smell from my room an hour or so before service began. Almost everything here is made fresh in the kitchen

“wonderful food”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We ate here on the second night of our two night stay in Mevagissey. We both wanted the chilli coated Monkfish special but unfortunately they only had one left. My husband gallantly went for the Sea Bass special. Had a nice bottle of wine with it and had desserts and coffees. It was a very nice meal but I have knocked off one star due to menus and special boards being left on our table for a good five minutes after we had orders.

“Great food, great view and good service, but a little pricy”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

Great food, very interesting specials given some ideas to attempt at home. The view is stunning and service was good it is perhaps a little pricey, although worth it.

Thanks for reviewing the Bay View. I am pleased you enjoyed your meal so much, but surprised you felt it a little pricey! At £20 for a two course meal and wine starting at £3 per glass, many customers tell us we are very reasonable and comparable to similar local establishments. I hope you come and visit us again though! :)

“fantastic view and good food”
Reviewed 19 July 2014 via mobile

Excellent location on the top of the hill over looking mevagissey harbour, parking restricted but if you drive a bit further up the road you will find some on the road parking without yellow lines!

Smart and modern interior, staff attentive and service was good.

Food was reasonably priced and good quality although a bit disappointed with the deserts.

Overall a nice place maybe for when you want something a bit more special than just "pub grub"

We are glad you enjoyed your visit to Bay
View so much, but equally very sorry the desserts were disappointing, especially as they are homemade by Mark and I don't remember anyone disliking any! It would have been interesting to have known at the time. I hope this doesn't put you off returning again.
