As this is a restaurant based in a hotel, I'm not sure how good value the a la carte menu would be for non residents. However, for us, as guests on an inclusive deal, the food was out of this world. Ample choice each evening, with excellent local shellfish and meat, and something for everyone. My favourite dish was the... More

Given other reviews it is possibly it was the head chef's night off,... More

This is a nice hotel restaurant with a lovely view over the Bay. The food is absolutely fabulous but it is pricey. We chose the Table d'Hote menu but no price was given and it was a bit of a nasty shock when the bill came. Some of the staff were extremely good and friendly but the service was 'out... More

We ate in this restaurant whilst staying at the hotel on three evenings. Each night had a different menu and each night was superb. We had an excellent different choice each night .

When staying overnight in the hotel, we ate our breakfast in the main restaurant and dinner in the brasserie. It was very good food and service in both occasions.

My Future Wife and I dined at the Bay each night during our three night stay at the Carlyon Hotel and not once were we disappointed. Stand out starters include the Smoked Salmon, and FW enjoyed the garlicky wild mushrooms on toasted sourdough. From the selection of mains we had, the Cornish fillet steak was outstanding, as was the Thai... More
