“fantastic people - great atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

my daughter had her 16th party out there with a few friends and the staff made up a special menu with b'day greetings and her name title on the menu. They did this without being requested to and i cannot say enough kind words about the staff who cared for my daughter & her friends back in May. I have also brought others of my family here and its good to see they also have left reviews. I brought my CEO from Wellington here and he brought a beautiful bottle of wine and we sat & enjoyed the views. Bay-house don't ever close down - not even in winter :( You are by far the TOP SPOT in Westport!!!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2013

Came here on holiday after hearing great things. It had changed hands to the listings we had. Great change. The staff and meals are terrific. Do not regret coming here. Monster view and the service and meals were great. Cant guess why these guys didn't have the awards continuing they are the best

“Repeated Service, Fine Food & Relaxation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2013 via mobile

Only a short drive from the main road, excellent food and service all enjoyed on a sunny deck with a neat view. Worth the 10 minute drive for a decent, relaxing break.

“epic everything!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

i have been to the bayhouse multiple times and everytime i go there it gets better,who could argue with a cool glass of white wine out on a sunny deck overlooking the beautiful tauranga bay,that and the added bonus of exceptional staff and tasty food makes this place a must do in the summer time

“Interesting Dessert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2013

This restaurant is off the beaten track, but well worth the visit. Wild West coast scenery FANTASTIC. The food was good quality. But how the fruit platter dessert was presented to my group of girl friends was special. We all had a great laugh over the Banana and appreciated the attend to detail. The chef was onto it.
