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.

The food here is just wonderful and good value for money. It can be a little busy at times so it is best to make a reservation first.

I have been many times and it's always consistently good. Love the atmosphere and the food. Went over the holidays with 5 people and everyone was happy. I had the monk fish and it was amazing.
