Excellent food, attentive service. We stayed at the hotel and ended up eating breakfast, a lunch, and a dinner there. A very nice experience.

Had lunch from their Brasserie menu. I chose the breast of duck with the black cherry sauce. When it arrived it was THE most perfect duck dish I've tasted for a long time. The meat was beautifully pink and so tender you could cut it with a fork. The black cherry sauce was to die for! This was followed by... More

The Bay Restaurant is one of the few fine dining options in Penzance, and I can not fault the food, which was excellent (although a bit over-priced for the amount). The views from the terrace of the restaurant are also lovely! I did not give it an excellent rating only through the feeling of it being a bit overpriced and... More

A large group of us booked a table here to celebrate my birthday but found it a little disappointing. The view is incredibly stunning, I think this is what you pay for as the food was of a great standard but very small portions indeed. Don't order the monkfish as you get two tiny pieces and I mean tiny. Found... More

Had a perfect meal out last week with efficient, friendly staff in a peaceful and beautiful setting. The mackerel was juicy and exciting and the Cadgwith crab was succulent. Thank you to everyone who looked after us so well.

Sat on shady terrace overlooking the pool and with a stunning view of Mounts Bay. Very quiet due to sunny weather but wonderful service and a steak to die for. Came with purple sprouting broccoli and fries but they were happy to swop the fries for extra broccoli! Wonderful meal, wonderful surroundings, would highly recommend.

Went to The Bay for lunch with a friend. Friendly welcome and seated in no time at a table on the balcony overlooking the bay. Friendly and speedy service in a relaxed atmosphere. The food was divine. For starters a tomato salad, which sounded simple to me, but lots of different sort used and a sauce to die for. Main... More

I booked a table at the bay for our anniversary, as we were on holiday I had gone for the closest restaurant to where we were staying and I'm glad we did. When entering we were asked if we would like a table on the balcony which over looked the sea so of course we accepted. The food was beautifully... More
