Like usually in Ireland you got more than enough food in our plates. Because we are quite use to it, we just had one starter and one main for two, ike that we could taste their dessert ;) The lamb was succulent and the crab yummy. The dessert was also perfectly cooked .Like always, nice people, really lovely.

Lovely Barman. Friendly, courteous and funny. The food portions are massive. We had a starter and main and literally couldn't fit dessert. The chowder in particular was excellent. Very happy to return.

Beautiful food with great choices. Also stocked with Irish Premium Oysters, which are a local family run business and internationally renowned. The Bayview also has a choice of zero alcohol lagers for those who are driving. Caters very well for kids, a very clean and welcoming bar/restaurant

We travelled here with our 3 children and we're not disappointed. The menu was extensive and reasonable. Our meals were plentiful and delicious. The kids menu was also extensive and even suits those fussy eaters! Worth a visit.

Have eaten here a few times with friends. Very extensive menu with lots of delicious options. Was particularly impressed with a recent lunchtime visit and there were several gluten-free options available.
