Fabulous meal, as always. Lovely house white wine too. Music could have been a little more festive. Lovely location even when the weather is grey. You can't beat looking at the sea from your table when dining. Good value for money ??

Awarded 2 AA Rosettes over 9 years, The Bay Restaurant in Penzance enjoys panoramic sea views across to St Michael’s Mount and the scenic old town. Enjoy locally-made wine and cider on the Bay Restaurant terrace, perfect for al fresco dining.

The Bay Restaurant menu offers all-day dining, with farmhouse breakfast and light brunch dishes served each morning. The coastal views make a romantic backdrop for pan-fried beef fillet to share, monkfish medallions, grilled red mullet, or The Bay's delightful West Country afternoon tea.

Speciality dishes use the best shellfish from the local market, with luxurious lobster thermidor or steamed lobster with linguine. Artisinal Cornish cheese, warm almond pudding or prune crème brûlée are accompanied by a fine selection of dessert wines.

The Bay is happy to make special arrangements for celebrations. Penzance Train Station is a 7-minute walk from The Bay Restaurant on Britons Hill.

    My husband and I enjoyed an excellent afternoon tea, a gift for my birthday from my daughter. There was no smoked salmon for the sandwiches, but crab was substituted at no extra cost. Delicious selection of cakes and light scones to go with the jam and cream.

    The only disappointment was that the weather wasn't better, a thick mist obscured the view out to sea.

    We was visiting penzanceee and it was my partners birthday so we thought we would come for a meal after hearing excellent reviews from family members who lived down there. It did not fail to impress from the setting to the customer service and beyond the food was amazing and we will be back again next year.

    I made my reservation online (which was easy) before I arrived here in Penzance because it was bank holiday weekend. I was please to say I made the right choice. Although the prices were a little on the expensive side my husband who had the fillet Steak said it was the best he ever had! The food was well presented and he staff were professional. As the restaurant was licenced we enjoyed the cocktails too. Mel
