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

Used to be a regular at the Little Bay and used to love it but have found the last 2-3 times we have been we have felt very rushed and I can understand if there where people waiting to be seated but there has not. While eating the starter we found the staff kept coming past looking in at us... More

Quirky little restaurant and the reviews are right, it's friendly, tasty and cheap. Not the most salubrious or cleanest place you go, but it's fab. It really is.

Ridiculously cheap considering portion size and quality, extremely romantic but also family friendly. Beautiful restaurant with lovely staff. Would recommend it to anyone who is looking for a good evening with good food. Love it.
