I met some friends for lunch at this restaurant and was pleasantly surprised! The food was wonderful presented and tasty. Portions are large, the price was reasonable. and the staff were friendly. I couldn't ask for any more. I will definitely be returning in the near future!

The food is lovely and the price is very reasonable. The restaurant at night is very cosy and romantic. Very busy all the time.

Visited this restaurant with my kids...the welcoming wasn't friendly and the staff didn't give us any option of where we would like to sit, even though the restaurant wasn't busy. The waiter seemed really flustered and it was as if we were bothering him. I ordered the risotto which I was really looking forward to, it arrived like a hard... More

The Little Bay is very much a neighbourhood restaurant. The prices are extremely low, £2.75 for a first course, for example, if you book before 7pm. And the food is excellent - some of the dishes have been on the menu since the first time I went there, 15 years ago. Short wine list, good choice of first courses and... More

The restaurant can be described as rustic; no tablecloths, wine bottles as candle holder, but this is all part of its charm. The setting is great for both intimate dinners and large groups. I went as part of a large group but waiters were attentive and friendly. Most importantly food is tasty, well presented and excellent value for money

We have ate here in the past and was always a favourite, the décor is great and there are lots of nooks and tables in balconies that add atmosphere to the venue. The menu hasn't changed but felt the quality has slightly, maybe a rethink of the menu might be in order. On saying that we still enjoyed and it... More

First time here but not the last, quirky decor, we had a booth upstairs which was fun. Great food, service and price.

I have been coming to this restaurant for years and I have never been dissapointed. The food is always lovely, especially their duck and the crushed new potatoes. I also really like tbe mussels. The staff are always welcoming, there is never a long wait for food, and it has a lovely cosy atmosphere. Great prices too. Can't recommend this... More

An amazing experience in home cooking style on Belsize Road. Simple and solid food but presented with artistry and care.
