Loved everything about this place. Location, ambience, service and food! A must see is the size of the seafood platter for two.

I travel to Smithton with work serveral times a year, and always ensure that I stay in Stanley, and my favorite place to dine is Stanleys on the bay.

The service is always friendly and professional, and I find the decor perfect for the setting.
Orders come out quickly and presentation is perfect, with fair size serve.
The food is excellent, fresh, tasty and cooked perfectly, personal favorite is the slow cooked Beef cheeks, they come on a creamy mash and bundle of fresh green beans.

Already I look forward to my next visit (I was only there 15 minutes ago!)

Delicious food - I like to try more than one thing so had two entrees - had the taste platter and was not overwhelmed by size - just perfect - loved the honey chilli octopus. Followed with scallops wrapped in salmon in a beer batter and a curry mayonnaise on a salad - very generous size and amazing flavours. Presentation was excellent. Unfortunately no room for dessert. Prices very reasonable.

Our whole night was ordinary. From the moment I asked if I could order chicken less the parmesan cheese and was rudely asked 'why, don't you like parmesan cheese' - I'm allergic to dairy. No help given at all to find something on the menu that I could safely eat. Both my husband and I voted our meals only okay. Service was nothing special. Wouldn't recommend this place to anyone, there are far better places to eat in Stanley
