The weather in September was brilliant so it was great to sit outside of this wonderful Cafe and Bistro to enjoy a superb breakfast and take in the breathtaking views. The staff are very friendly and even offered the dog a bowl of clean water the food is freshly prepared all at a very good price. I thoroughly recommend this... More

Stopped off on our way to Cornwall as I wanted to see Burgh Island (Poirot fan). Before looking around the island we decided to have breakfast at The Bay View. Wonderful breakfast, freshly cooked and surprisingly large portion with a lovely cup of coffee. Also must be the best cafe view in Devon. Staff were charming and helpful.

Please note this delightful place is miles from Kingsbridge !! Had a simple lunch of homemade sandwiches - prawns on granary and ham on granary plus a bowl of chips. Lovely bread and substantial filling. Very tasty chips too ! In an elevated position overlooking the beaches and sea just above the car park. Perfect for a sunny September day.

A lovely little cafe to spend some time enjoying the view of Burgh Island. We stopped as we were walking along the coast footpath and enjoyed a nice sized toasted tea cake and cappuccino. Nice clean restaurant with staff who are very friendly and helpful. Sitting outside and enjoying the views - perfect.

We had a lunch and a dinner at the Bay View Cafe (lunch) and Bistro (dinner). There aren't many places to dine in Bigbury. Fortunately, this is very close to anyone staying there and wants to walk to a place to eat. It can be very crowded on a sunny day! It has some very good seafood (evening selection), sandwiches...

With about six tables inside be sure to book one in advance! The cafe is situated on the hill just opposite the entrance of the overflow parking lot. It has an incredible view over Bigbury Bay and Burgh Island and weather permitting their patio seating offers the best views in the house! A small menu with a delicious selection of... More

Lovely crab sandwiches (with proper dressed crab and a thick layer at that!), nice crispy chips as a side, great view of Burgh Island. Bread for the sandwiches was fresh and enticing. Very little to fault! Not a bargain but the service and views made it well worthwhile
