There was plenty of space as there were 4 couples and 7 children. We were seated upstairs. There was no view as we we in the very back of the restaurant. The food was good and the portions were large. Child menu was good.

Went here during the week for dinner with my wife and 3 year old. We were very disappointed with the food, cleanliness and service. The chips I got with my burger appeared and tasted as if they were reheated. We had to ask a second time for things like condiments and a children's drink which came with the children's meal....

Visited here on many occasions and it never disappoints. Latest visit was in the afternoon and even though it was not so busy all staff were totally focused and we had lovely fresh mushroom and spinach soup followed by roast beef with a superb stuffing served on a bed of divinely flavoured herb mash with superb vegetables and wonderful chips....

Excellent food, excellent service and a lovely atmosphere. I cannot fault it. The food was superb. I had the gourmet lamb burger which was truly delicious. My fiancee loved the chicken curry and my mum thought the vegetable lasagne was delicious as well. I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Tower Bistro, on the seafront in Bray is a find. Great buzz, very busy place, yet staff have time to spend with you.

I have had some lovely meals in the Tower Bistro recently. The staff could not she been more attentive and the food was faultless. It was also great value. I would highly recommend it for any occasion or just a bite to eat. I celebrated my birthday there recently and had other meals with friends, all good experiences.

My boyfriend and I had a lovely evening meal here, he went for the fillet steak and I opted for the seafood linguini. Both were unbelievable. The flavours were outstanding, the amount of seafood in the linguini was more than acceptable, especially for the price. I wouldn't hesitate to return here, both food and service was amazing.
