Excellant food and service. A very enjoyable evening with great views over Penzance. Prices are fairly reasonable although possibly not for those on a tight budget.

We were a party of 4 yesterday evening and we enjoyed the evning as we always do at the Bay. The starters were reasonable but my order of a very rare steak seemed impossible for the chef. It was medium to well done. The waiter - who was pleasant and polite- took it away and brought another within 5 minutes... More

Dear Guests, thank you for your review. Our terrace is just the most perfect place to be today with the sparkling views across Mounts Bay whilst dining on our home made scones with jam and clotted cream, the cornish way of course. It is absolutely stunning here in Penzance. More

Looked up trip advisor for a restaurant in Penzance and chose The Bay. A warm and friendly welcome with excellent service. The menu was interesting and the food beautifully cooked. The ambience was relaxing and the evening was thoroughly enjoyable.

Visited here with my partner for lunch and was greeted by a slightly awkward waiter. Made us feel slightly unwelcome but thankfully a very friendly and helpful lady took over from him and made us feel very welcome! I had the fish and chips and my partner had the crab pasta. WOW! It has to be the best fish and... More

Friendly and helpful staff, need to clear away finished plates quickly. Excellent food, worthy of a high rating, beautifully presented, although a small choice, especially as we stayed more than one night. Loved the idea of a free cream tea during the afternoon, and a cocktail week! Will return to enjoy the excellent food. The Leas

On first impressions, walking up to the Restaurant look lovely. Especially on the outside seating area overlooking the Pz Bay. We were seated on a lovely large round table. (plenty of space and looked really nice HOWEVER, the table was rather bendy and felt insecure) The wine list is really nice with plenty of choice and not bad prices either.... More

We had a lovely meal at the end of May in this restaurant. The food was delicious and the staff were very helpful. We were also very lucky with the weather as we got to sit outside on the veranda overlooking the port and town. We felt like we were abroad!
