Yes unfortunately Bay Watch has closed. Shame because it really was a nice spot and did produce some fantastic meals, a fusion of French and Island cuisine. However their chef Dida is now working at the Beef House so I look forward to trying their menu.

Ate here on a Saturday night and despite being early in the night they had no seafood or pork so the menu ended up being very limited. We also asked for mosquito coils which took 30 minutes to be set up despite being very quiet.

Our dinner at Bay Watch was just ok but nothing to speak of. Very loud music, we felt like being in a night club. Nice location on the water, but the place looks a bit run down.

Very nice, relaxed restaurant right on the water. Excellent customer service with both people who looked after us chatting away and recommending things to do on the island. The French guy (think he runs it) is such a nice guy. The food was delicious - one of the best steaks I've ever had, and well priced for the area. Great... More

Very French, could be a little hard to find, but don't give up. Great salads with fish freshly caught and cooked. Went for lunch and prices were very reasonable. There was a lunch special which was great, try it if it is still on.

Lovely location right on the waters edge. We enjoyed the 1000v lunch special. I had the steak which was served with mushroom sauce, fries, beans & salad. My husband had the fish & calamari salad. Both came with a complimentary lime juice. Meals were lovely & perfect size for lunch. The staff were wonderful. We'd eat here again. It's not... More

We were only able to visit Bay Watch for lunch and we selected from the 1000 vatu lunch special which was inclusive of a glass of lime juice. The meals we had (fish salad) were both good, although not outstanding. Service was laid back but our meals arrived quite quickly. The location though is beautiful and, because the restaurant is...
