Friendly and great atmosphere

Went on a bank holiday Sunday evening, and the place was full, though I had only booked that afternoon. Theatre-style decor gives a real sense of occasion - I don't necessarily agree with the reviewer that said it was "tacky", it's unpretentious and doesn't seem to take itself too seriously, even... read more

Over the last few years the standard and quality of the food/service has deteriorated, although as it's still competitively priced we've returned. During our recent visit we requested a minute steak to be cooked a little bit more than rare. The waiter refused as did the Manager. At the end of day we are the customers and we are paying... More

Went with friends for a birthday meal. Everything was OK at top ranking. Service was slow but the food did come eventually. Food was OK but not great and portion size was on the small side. Best bit of the evening was the singer. Good at what he did and the volume was low enough that we could talk without... More

I don't know how this place has got so many good reviews. The interior is so off-putting, it's cheap, tacky and lacks class. The food was okay nothing special but honestly nothing will get past the awful interior.

Have been here a few times and each time have had a lovely night. Restaurant is really uniquely decorated and has a great atmosphere. Would recommend booking ahead and getting the booth areas in the back. Saturday night entertainment also always get people talking! Food has always been delicious- would really recommend!

I went to this restaurant yesterday during "happy hour" and ordered the dishes the three course meal at a set price. The food was amazing, especially the slow cooked lamb. I was informed that there is also entertainment during the week. I'll check this out another time.

Hidden away in the depths of south croydon, this eccentric restaurant really makes you feel like you've been transported to Italy. Incredible value for money. Me and my boyfriend has 2 courses and drinks for only £28 and the quality of the food was just amazing.

I went to the Little Bay as I had heard really good things about it, but I left less than impressed. To start with, the decor is confused and dark. I don't mind the darkness and a quirky theme, but this just feels cluttered in my opinion. The toilets are 'Satan red', and not that nice, either. The merlot which... More
