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.

    Delicious food, nice wines, friendly and attentive service. If weather good try and bag one of the three tables on balcony overlooking the harbour (wall heaters available). All in all an excellent restaurant especially if you are staying in the charming Hotel Penzance.

    Took visitors for Sunday lunch. The braised beef was very good , we all enjoyed it.
    Our waitress was excellent.
    The restaurant suffers from only having a small clientele so the ambience isn't there. shame , it deserves better.
