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.

    Excellent food, well presented. Friendly and amenable dining room staff. But I would have expected a change of dinner menu over my 5day stay.

    Very friendly and attentive waitress who brought us our drinks before we sat down in the dining room. We thought the prices were on the high side for what we had. I had the steak which was a bit on the chewy side, the French fries were good though. Object to paying for extra veg. Thought the menu a bit limited. The place itself was very acceptable, but they need to improve the food, prices and menu.

    We both enjoyed a lovely meal here, beautiful and stunning views... the restaurant was immaculate and the food was amazing.

    We were a party of four for Sunday lunch
    We all really enjoyed what we ate
    To be critical , we would have preferred the vegetables to have been more generous and to have been presented in a separate dish so we could choose the ones we liked

    Excellent bread, steak, cod and scallops, berry pudding. Terrible Nespresso coffee - that stuff is convenient to make but really awful to drink. White wine delivered to the table a bit too soon - still drinking initial drinks. Tomatoes with the scallops had been chosen for colour - but had no flavour at all, shame at this time of year. Lovely view over PZ harbour and the Scillonian. Not many diners - seem mostly to be staying at the hotel, so atmosphere a bit lacking, again odd for peak August.

    Very good dining experience ; note portions are pretty small, enough for us, but probably small for usual english standards.....

    As requested a lovely table for three as it was a treat for my Aunts birthday who was 92 the day before. Had an afternoon tea with sandwiches & cakes. Chose Ham & Cheese which had the most delicious mustard & pickle. Lovely selection of delicious cakes, beautiful light scones which we all commented on with plenty of jam & cream The teapot was topped up again which was most appreciated, everything was done lovely & will visit again. Such a lovely treat for the birthday girl who was very happy about the experience & was going to tell her friends . Thanks for making the afternoon special for her & also us most appreciated. Would like to add also how posh the toilets were with a lovely white face cloth each , handcream etc.
