Description: Attention to detail, friendly yet professional service, fresh local produce and panoramic seaviews make dining at the Cobo Bay Hotel a very special occasion. Our stylish restaurant continually wins recognition for the quality its of food and service, including two AA rosettes for culinary excellence, a feat achieved by very few restaurants in Guernsey. Our a la carte menu is available for both lunch and dinner inside & out on The Beach Terrace, specialising in fresh Guernsey seafood and shellfish caught within the bay itself, as well as the finest cuts of meat. Open daily from 10am to 10pm season and weather permitting, The Beach Terrace offers al fresco dining with the finest views that Guernsey has to offer, making it the perfect place to enjoy a warm afternoon or long summer evening watching the sun set on the horizon. With a secluded outdoor bar area, afternoon light bites and home made cakes, this really is Guernsey at its very best.

“Band on the Balcony”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

We attended as a group of 16 for a family meal. Despite all tables full we received excellent service in both the quality of food, the speed of service and the helpful staff. If your visit coincides with this event you are in for a treat

CoboBayHotel, Owner at Cobo Bay Restaurant & Beach Terrace, responded to this review, 3 July 2014
Dear Sir,

I am sorry that you did not enjoy your recent meal at Cobo, although I am very surprised about your comments regarding our menu. Fresh local seafood is our speciality, yet half of our extensive a la carte menu is made up of meat and vegetarian dishes, with a choice of 4 different vegetables and 3 different salads to accompany your main course, in addition to a choice of potatoes. The hotel is still owned and run by the same family which built it 50 years ago, and Romano, our F&B Manager, has been with us for a number of years, though I apologise that the level of service did not meet your expectations on this occasion.

Yours sincerely,

Luke Nussbaumer

“Lunch with a view”
Reviewed 11 June 2014

We decided on a light lunch and were not disappointed. We chose a starter each and the portions were huge. The monkfish tempura was amazing. 3 succulent pieces of fish cooked to perfection. The pork rillettes was also great. These dishes with a glass of chilled white wine and a cappuccino to follow. Sitting on the terrace with the sun shining and beautiful views over Cobo Bay. What more could you ask for. They serve food all day, so you can have breakfast, brunch, lunch, coffee or an evening meal. Unfortunately there is building work going on in the pub next door, but that did not put us off and did not spoil our lunch. Please don't let it put you off.
