Lovely Position

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.

Having family who live less than 5 mins walk from the restaurant means that every time we visit angelsey we go to this restaurant. And every time we have been it has been amazing! There is always a nice menu to choose from on the table but there is always a different selection of specials on the board! Do not... More

We're staying at Red Wharf Bay for a long weekend. We walked this morning with our family & their dogs to Benllech. We didn't expect to find anywhere open this time of year for a late morning coffee, but stumbled across this excellent cafe. As we had 2 dogs in tow we sat outside, but this didn't detract from our... More

Living in Benllech I can honestly say that this is one of the best places to eat out (Bradleys is another). A great choice on the menu, good value and high quality all make for a pleasurable experience and that is what we've always had here.

We ate here twice during our week's holiday in Red Wharf Bay and had been before a few years ago. On all three occasions the food was lovely - much better than certain other highly-rated local eateries!

Chose to eat at Bay Café having read previous good reviews. Beautiful location with great views of Benllech Bay but disappointed with quality of food (evening meal). Menu looked appealing and was expecting some wonderful home cooked, freshly prepared food. We both chose the duck (£13.95 each) and got a duck that was dry, chips that appeared to be frozen... More

2nd time we have been this year. Having eaten at Dylans, Oyster catcher, boathouse, the ship etc, this is the best out of all of them. Nice spot, nicely cooked delicious food, good staff, cakes very good. Going again during our 2 week holiday for our anniversary meal (we are 37 years old, just to point out our age views).... More

Popped in whilst walking the coastal path to Red Wharf Bay - lovely position. Very friendly staff and efficient service - only had drinks on this occasion as had lunch at Moelfre, but would definitely return to try the food on a future occasion.
