Yuck! Chewy/fatty lamb chops, microwaved rice, no AC & waiter kept leaning over me to serve my brother in law who was sat opposite me, needless to say the aroma was not nice! Mushroom steak was boring & the mushrooms hadn't even been sautéed they were just sliced & raw. Potato Fries weren't crispy. I won't be eating there again.

Fantastic view of rawche rock.The food is good. Also the service is good. We ordered labneh and grilled halloum as well as manakish. All was delicious. The staff is nice but the service is little bit slow. It to 30 min. To bring our order. But in all , we would like to visit it again.

Visited this restaurant to eat after sunset which meant that I couldn't enjoy the view since there were no lights towards or on the cliffs that were their signature attraction. As for the food I ordered a grilled steak. The portion size was adequate (not too small) but the stake came on a piece of toast and was dry and... More

The food barely has a taste, and ordered the stuffed lamb, which was a poor quantity and over priced. The views are nice but barely noticeable at night when the regular electricity is off.

Outstanding view of Rauche Rock and sunset for romantic viewers, medium quality dishes and food, overpriced for the served food quality/quantity, and good Iftar package during Ramadan. The food quality is not compatible with the price tag but the Rauche Rock and sea view compensate a bit for the inconsistency. For an unknown reason the first question you'll be asked... More

Went there as a late night friends gathering and hangout. Its located directly near the famous Rawche Rock and the views are breath-taking. The service is very very poor to non, from taking the order to serving. We all ordered drinks and coffee and all were disastrous (the lemonade was very bad mainly) and the coffee was tooooo sweet. The... More

I ordered a steak "medium rare." The waiter actually asked, "pink in the middle?" The steak that arrived was cooked "very well done," it was like shoe leather. The meat was laid upon a piece of bread, and the entire plate was soaked in a disgusting brown gravy. I ate the vegetables and potato served with the meal and left... More

This cafe-restaurant is located very close to the famous Pigeon Rocks overlooking a small bay. The view is unbeatable and the proprietor absolutely charming - he spent some time answering our questions about the country and his background with great courtesy and knowledge. We only stopped for drinks on our way to the airport - I had a very interesting... More

I've been to Bay Rock Café for lunch & dinner as well. I have had it all and it was great. The food was good, drinks as well. However, the service could be worked on a little. After all this place deserves it, especially because of its amazing view. Cheers! For a great view of the rawcheh rocks that's the... More
