Old style pub overlooking the bay

Great old style pub, outside seating is great when the sun is shining, otherwise it can be a little cool. The food and drinks we had were well presented and fresh.Good choice of food on the menus and always a catch of the day for fish lovers.

The Bay Cafe is a very popular eating place in Benllech so you must book. It is very family orientated. The staff are very pleasant and the food is good, particularly the lamb. The puddings are very good too.

Very busy so best to book if it is a Bank Holiday etc. Informal Cafe with restaurant style menu as well as the usual coffee and cake cafe style snacks available. Superb service. Very near to the beach so I imagine peak holiday time would be standing room only ! Well worth a visit.

We were keen to re-visit the Bay Cafe after chancing across it a couple of years ago whilst staying in Benlech (and ending up eating more or less every meal there!). I'm pleased to say that it has not changed - great food at reasonable prices, in a lovely quiet spot at the end of the best beach in Anglesey.... More

A party of 4 adults and 2 children went for breakfast on Saturday 21/03/2015 to this quaint café overlooking Benllech beach. The food was very nice and good value for money. We would definitely go again when we are next in the area.

Lovely meals, reasonable prices and fabulous location. Right on the beach at Benllech, Anglesey, North Wales. Sitting on the veranda over the beach is one of the best experiences I have had at a restaurant. Looking forward to visiting again soon

Stopped here for some food on a day trip out to the coast. Friendly staff served us huge portions of beef stew and tuna which were great value for money. Beautiful view out over the beach and headland.

We drove around some little villages trying to find an open pub or a cafe for about an hour. With no look we decided to try Benllech. Driving down towards the sea front it did not look open so we drove past and turned around just after the car park. I decided to have a closer look and discovered it... More

The Bay is wonderful for either coffee, light lunch or an evening meal. It us wonderfully situated and the views are lovely. The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The good thing is you are able to book. A delightful experience.
