My friend recommended that we eat here because it was one of her favourite restaurants. We arrived at 6pm so we got the 2 courses for £8.50 (before 7pm deal) - what a bargain! Complimentary bread and butter were wrapped up on the table for us. For my starter I ordered the 'Soup of the Day' which was vegetable soup... More

Do not try and bring a toddler on a Friday afternoon. They "cannot handle" a small child on "weekends". Sorry, can't comment on the food because we were not allowed to eat with our son. Surprised since their menu is set up to become more expense at 7 pm insinuating that is their busy time yet at 6 pm they... More

I love Little Bay- it's very near to where I stay in London for work and it's such good value I will often just stop off there on the way to my digs rather than buy food to cook. If you get there before 7pm, the meals are cheaper and amazing value. I have been there with friends, on my... More

I usually visit Little Bay when I'm a little cash strapped but want a good meal. The three course set meal always hits the spot - good variety, value and in a quirky setting. Only comment is that I find the pana cotta a little too firm for my tastes but otherwise an enjoyable meal every time

Firstly I am happy to be sharing this with you all. I have been going to The Little Bay for a few years now and although I do not go all the time, I can honestly say that it is one of my favourite restaurants. Over the weekend I went there to dine alone and was able to take a... More

Little Bay packs a punch well above its weight. Super cute interior with camp little 'balcony' tables, the food is both delicious and so cheap. Starters all under £4 and mains under £8. I had the crab profiteroles starter this time, yum!! It's got a home cooking feel to it, not remotely a bad thing. I really like it here.

This has been my favourite restaurant for many years. I have introduced all my friends to this unique restaurant because it has delicious yet affordable European food. A blend of French and Italian as well as some other influences. Try the mussels, chargrilled lamb or the Belsize chicken - these are my favourites. However, if these are not to your... More

Good quality well presenting tasty food. I have been on numerous occasions and have always left very happy and full. The only draw back is extension part of the restaurant is not nice at all.

Ive been eating at Little Bay for years and I just absolutely love the place. The menu never changes ( they have a 'specials' menu but that is always the same too) but I don't mind that at all. There are things on the both menu's that I would hate to see taken off. Whether you are on a romantic... More
