“Very welcome after a long walk”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

Went here after a walk along the coastal path. Had a really good sandwich lunch, very fresh and tasty good quantity, best bit was the fab chips. Staff helpful and of course the views were breathtaking, depending on where you manage to get your seat in this very busy cafe. Looking forward to our next visit, soon we hope.

“Simply Perfect”
Reviewed May 6, 2014

We have been visiting Rhossili for the last six years, and always go to The Bay Bistro. We have just returned from another visit, and had a number of meals there.

Where do I start?

The decor is cheerful and welcoming. You feel like you could sit for hours just looking at the view. There is a lovely relaxed atmosphere, which is just want you need when you are on holiday.

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful, advising us of their favourites on the menu, and giving us a heads up when a newly baked carrot cake was ready!!

The prices are very reasonable, especially considering the prime position the bistro is in.

As for the food!! Generous portions, piping hot when it was supposed to be, and always well presented. Special mentions to:
The cooked breakfast
The carrot cake with ice cream!
The chunkiest chips we have ever seen
The carrot and coconut soup
The chicken curry
The deluxe hot chocolate with a cream mountain on top!
I could go on!

This is not a fast food restaurant, everything is cooked to order which is what makes it so amazing. Even with this in mind, we never waited long at all for any meal.

We will be visiting Rhossili again next year, and we will be heading straight for The Bay Bistro, as it always plays a big part in making our time in Rhosili special.

“Rhossili's Best Eatery”
Reviewed April 27, 2014

I would highly recommend The Bay Bistro to anyone looking for good, well priced food with lovely helpful staff. We had initially booked a table for 6 for lunch indoors but the weather was so good we asked if we could sit outside. Immediately two tables to pushed together, in a prime position looking down on the glorious Rhossili beach. Nothing was too much trouble. Our food was excellent, and the staff were so pleasant. We enjoyed our experience so much we returned again the next day! If you are reading this review and cannot decide between this and the Worms Head Hotel (see separate review) there is no comparison. The Bay Bistro wins hands down. Thank you Bay Bistro, we will be returning on our next visit to Gower.
