The food is always delicious and well presented. I have had a wide variety of meals, my favourite being the seafood platter, which is just awesome! One of the best platters I’ve had.
The childrens menus is great and my kids love it. The puzzle page to keep them happy is great.
The lovely manager lady (sorry I don’t know her name), has a lovely positive happy manner and always make us feel really welcome.
The atmosphere is friendly, inviting and cosy. Especially in winter, with the warm gas fire on.
Will always be one of my favourites.
The food was amazing, I had the eye Mignon. It was perfectly cook, the topping was amazing.
Staff are splendid, so friendly.
Got a chance to meet the kitchen staff, all of them are so happy and always talking.
Planning to go back soon for another meal.
I ordered the battered mushrooms, which were really good, I shared the Camembert in filo pastry with bacon, apricot sauce and cashews, which were really good too.
My sister had the prawn cocktail, which was really just OK, nothing to rave about, probably could have made it better at home.
Most of our table ordered the sirloin roast which had a stuffing of some sort and vegetables.
The reason for the three star’s is because of my pie of the day which was steak and kidney. I was really unimpressed with this, I am sure a 10 year old can make better, I feel bad saying it but it was honestly the worst pie I have had. The flavours were not there, I ended up drowning it in salt and pepper just to give it some kind of flavour, but I ended up forcing myself to eat half of it.
I did try the sirloin which was delicious, and the fish ‘n chips which someone at our table ordered also looked good.
The pie was a real shame as I really enjoyed the mushroom entree and the Camembert entree.
I think that The Bay should remove the pie from their menu as well as the shrimp cocktail.
Other than those 2 dishes, I still think their food is good.
My partners lamb shank (1 shank & mash for $33) was over cooked. We advised our waitress that we were not satisfied with our meals but after waiting a further 20 minutes no one had come to speak to us.
We found the service to be slow & very unprofessional, especially for the prices charged the food & service should be several grades higher. Even as we paid & left no one from the restaurant offered to discuss the issues we had raised which we found to be very unprofessional.
Very disappointed & definitely not recommended.
UPDATE Apr 23 2012:
Full credit to The Bay for contacting me about the bad experience we had below. They immediately apologised & offered to make the situation right. We returned to have a marvellous meal, the Snapper with Sweet Chilli Cream Sauce was delicious & the lime cheesecake was divine! Thank you!
Fantastic meal & excellent to see the restaurant immediately offering to make situation right.
The atmosphere was great, easy on the eye gentle background music, nicely spaced tables so we had privacy. The waitress was attentive without being overbearing and the food was terrific, entre’ was good and helped us to start our wine, the steak was fantastic- just perfect, meals the right size leaving the desserts which we all loved and I even had a delicious Lemon Merangue Martini- superb!
Our guest was definately impressed and so were we, we will definately go again.
The food…….WOW!! Awesome!!
The best steak I’ve had in a restaurant in NZ so far in the two years I’ve lived here. It was cooked exactly the way I asked for it. The seafood platter was huge! (Father in law and husband tucked into that!) and the Creme Brulee…? Well that was absolutely scrummy! I’ve reviewed quite a few restaurants on here and I always think I’m fair, therefore I’d highly recommend theBay. I’ll definitely be going again, can’t believe I didn’t go before now. A lovely little pearl in the Bays!
