We returned to The Bay for a meal. The food was outstanding both in presentation and taste. My only gripes are that the staff did not look very smart, in fact the head waiter/manager was just in shirt and tie no waistcoat or jacket. Also he was very poor at interacting and seemed very cold and unwelcoming unlike the waitress... More

Forget that this restaurant is in the Penzance Hotel, it is worth visiting for the interesting menu and very skilled cooking and we saw that it does indeed get local custom.

We went with a couple of friends to The Bay last night, on the Dine in Style offer, £15.00 for 2 courses. Normally The Bay are more expensive & as we hadn't been there before but had heard good reports, we wanted to give it a whirl. Our friends had previously stayed in the hotel a couple of years ago...

I had to use my phone light to see where the steps are going up the path as it wasn't lit up. The prices of the drinks and food are too expensive for what it is. The e-voucher from their website disappointed me because you can't use it after 6.15pm which in my eyes is a bit of a con.... More

Thank you for visiting The Bay Restaurant, I'm sorry that we weren't aware that it was a birthday celebration. the chef and restaurant Manager would have happily gone the extra mile to make it special for you.

This break included an evening meal at the Bay as part of the deal, prior to leaving we downloaded the menu from the Hotel web and we were impressed by the offerings. However we found the actual main meal portion sizes to be on the small side which was a disappointment as we had not as yet started our diets.
