Atop the Bayview hotel [in central Georgetown] is a revolving restaurant and bar. The buffet supper- nourishes the body and soul. It provides interesting and diverse foods as well as displays great sunset views and all of Georgetown and beyond.

We went for a buffet dinner here and the food was really disappointing. The curries were bland. Not good value for money. But the views are great, maybe just go to the bar for a drink.
