Description: The Bay in Penzance is a relaxed, airy and modern restaurant with a cheery atmosphere. The evening menu is seasonally updated and the All Day Dining menu includes a daily changing Menu De Jour. The restaurant prides itself on locally sourced produce from locally caught fish to dairy and meats from local farms. They even have Cornish wine! In the summer months guests can eat on the outdoor deck with stunning views across Mount's Bay and over the rooftops to Penzance harbour.

“Lobster Feast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Upon booking for a hotel to stay in Penzance, it recommended this restaurant located within the hotel. Half part open terrace, I was overwhelmed by the quality of the food and friendly service. We ordered two and a half lobster which was cooked in different ways. No disappointment, we had enjoyed so far the best lobster feast, not in any other fancy destinations but in this beautiful British seaside. I would most certainly recommend to family and friends.

“Best in Penzance ?”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013 via mobile

Visited here for lunch last Friday. The place has wonderful sea views. The menu is great and the service was friendly and efficient. I suspect this restaurant could well be the best in Penzance. It also has a hotel, and I may well try it on my next trip to Cornwall. Highly recommended!

“Fantastic Anniversary meal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We had our 22nd Wedding Anniversary meal here last night. We had a warm welcome as soon as we entered the restaurant, the staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. The restaurant itself has great views overlooking the bay. The food was lovely a real taste sensation. Overall this was a very pleasant evening and i wouldn't hesitate to eat here again.
