Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Sophisticated menu with opulence in style, loved the variety of the tasting menu, tuna was superb, pork flavour explosion and desert divine. Moscato was one of the best I’ve tried. Service excellent and lovely atmosphere.

Met a friend for lunch today. We decided on a meal from the lunch menu (there were 3 menus to choose from). Ordered the Thai beef salad and it was superb! Enjoyed Tassie wine and that view!

What an amazing meal. I’d seen people recommend this restaurant many times on a Tassie FaceBook page but was not expecting the meal I sat down to. Indulged with the 6 course degustation and every course was delicious. Honestly hard to pick a favourite but...think if I had to I would say the pork belly but the quail was a close second. Went all out and opted for the tasting plate for dessert and it too was so good. If you’re in Burnie and feel like a nice night out could not recommend Bayviews highly enough. Everyone at the table had great meals and the service was warm and friendly. Can’t wait to go again next time I’m in town. Oh and the views, just topped off a beautiful meal.More

Stopped for lunch after recommended by a friend from Burnie. Relatively quiet, got a table by the window with nice ocean and boardwalk views. Service was pleasant, quick and attentive. I had filet steak, she had the fish special (salmon in a coconut cream sauce),...a reasonably priced Tassie Pinot and we both had dessert (salted caramel panna cotta and a cream brûlée). Food was astounding - perfectly cooked, very flavourful mains and delicious desserts. The best meal we’ve had anywhere in a long time. Better than 2 and 3 hatted restaurants we’ve been to. When next we’re back in Tassie will go to Burnie solely to eat here again.More

Incredible views, food and service. Had a family meal here and was one of the best we have had in Tassie. Spectacular views and incredible local food. Very friendly and genuine service. Really good eye fillet steak. Must have for a meat lover. Can’t wait...to be back.More

I had dinner with several colleagues and we were rewarded with some of Tasmanian's finest local produce. I had the cured trout as an entrée and the braised scallops for main course with a side of steamed greens. The meals were perfectly cooked and tasted...great. There's a few little nice touches like the sorbet between courses. The service was very attentive and the wine list had some excellent local offerings. I shall be making a return visit next time I'm in Burnie.More

I ordered the Scotch fillet, medium to well done. It came back very rare, even more rare then my brothers steak which was medium rare. The chef must have had a bad day or he forgot what the difference was in cooking the steak. Anyway,...I asked the manager to re-cook the steak. He came back with only half the steak. What happened to the rest of my steak!!!! Still had to pay full price....very disappointed. Luck the owner was not there on the night.More

We went to the Bayviews Restaurant for a set menu on NYE. When we made the reservation we asked if they are able to accommodate for a pescetarian diet (i.e., no meat) and were assured that this is no problem. They did not serve us...any meat. However, they also did not serve as much of anything else. Every course was basically the same as the meaty one we saw at the table next to ours but without the meat. They upped the non-meat parts of the courses a little bit, but none of the courses had any kind of substitute for the removed meat such as fish, tofu, additional carbs etc. After five courses we were still quite hungry and asked for some bread. We were served a beautiful loaf, but in a fine-dining restaurant we would have expected someone to ask us if everything was alright. We were also charged the same amount as everyone else when we clearly did not get the same value. If you don't eat meat, I would not recommend to go there.More

We had dinner here very recently and were most impressed. It is not cheap, the meals are not large BUT the food was very impressive. For entrees, the two guys had beef carpaccio and it was very tasty. The ladies shared a mixed entree platter...which they described as delicious. For mains we had eye fillet steaks and fish of the day, which was hapuka. All meals were cooked perfectly. While not being pretentious, everything is done very well. Being situated right on the water's edge of Bass Strait, the view is spectacular and even the tables are arranged so that everyone can see the ocean. Thoroughly recommended, particularly for a special occasion.More

We had a celebratory lunch for three on a Saturday in very wild winter weather. Restaurant staff welcomed us to a table with an excellent view of the wild surf out in the bay and set us up with drinks. The drinks were good (Tasmanian...wines for us), and the food was terrific, with all diners choosing different options. Highly recommended, and we will be back again in the near future.More

My wife and I had lunch here today (Saturday 29 May) for our first time. Very impressed by the service, food, and views. The owner Ann Wyss made us very welcome and signed us through the covid process. The restaurant was bathed in sunlight and...the views across the Bass Straits were amazing. The order for drinks was taken quickly and efficiently and the pint of Boags Draught and a glass of Wineglass Bay Sauvignon Blanc arrived in no time. My wife ordered the Pea, basil, and ricotta cannelloni with Garden salad with shaved Grana Padano parmesan, walnuts, apple, 8yr old balsamic vinegar. I ordered the slow-cooked Scottsdale pork scotch. Both meals were excellent, everything was fresh and locally sourced and both meals were cooked to perfection. We shared a dark chocolate and salted caramel tart for dessert and again it was brilliant. We chatted with the chef, Patrick Sherriff, and complimented him and his team on a wonderful meal. 5 STAR rating, we will be returning soon!!!More
