“Really good quality and good value food”
Reviewed January 22, 2012

I have visited this bistro in January and taken advantage of the midweek 2 for 1 main meal offer. Great food on both occasions and I would return and pay full price

“The New Bay - A New Find”
Reviewed August 26, 2011

Finding a good value pub meal in Melbourne is a treat, because the competition is fierce, and most suburbs offer a selection. The New Bay in Brighton impressed me with the number of locals being met by staff who knew their names - a reflection on frequent visitors. Smooth service, great food, extensive wine selection by the glass, and an vibrant atmosphere guaranteed an enjoyable meal with family. Steak cooked perfectly, fish presented beautifully, and smiling wait staff, impressed my family, who want to return on another winter evening to enjoy more. Maybe the staff will get to know my name as well?

“Pretty Average”
Reviewed September 12, 2010

We booked for 9 people for Father's Day lunch as it was convenient for everyone and this bistro was obviously at the time undergoing a bit of a renovation so it would probably be unfair to comment on the decor.

The menu is typical pub fare, reasonable value and bar service for drinks and meal ordering, meals are brought out to you.

The entree dishes eg the soup of the day and the brucetta were declared delicious by those who had them.

I ordered the Chicken Parma and it came with a little ramekin of fresh, cooked just right veges and a serve of mash on the plate. It was very nice. Hubby ordered Chilli Prawns which were not so nice, thickly covered in a gooey tomatoey sort of sauce and not much in the way of chilli.

Not so lucky were the several at our table who ordered the roast of the day which was pork. It was a decent enough serve and came out with lots of baked potatoes and pumpkin but strangely there was nothing green at all on the plate which would have gone along way to improve the presentation. My mum said she would have liked some broccoli or beans or something as well. She described her roast pork as dissappointing whilst others said it was tough.

My dad though, who also had the pork ate every morsel on his plate, so he obviously enjoyed it and I guess that is the main thing!

All in all there is nothing to really rave about here and would only return because of its convenient location for the family.
