Had lunch here and the place was almost empty so it was lovely and quite and had great views over the water. The steak was well cooked and the seafood platter for one was huge. The cook was really flexible and happy to swap the oysters for prawns and cook some other parts of the seafood platter without cream. This... More

On our first day in St Helens, we were keen to find a good seafood restaurant overlooking the serenity of the bay. We couldn't find one, the best one closed down some months before. We thus came upon the Bay Bar & Bistro as we search the shore area. We did have to hurry, as the kitchen was about to... More

A busy Saturday night but our meal arrived about 10 minutes after ordering. We had fish and a parma and the meals had good portion sizes and were nicely plated.

Not a bad place for a food visit - we had a reasonable meal of vegetarian curry and a fillet of fish and chips - a couple of glasses of wine and the bill was under $100 - not too bad when everywhere else was closed (Sunday)

Lovely view & convenient location, but the meals are very ordinary. The roast vegetables & chips were very ordinary & a quite small serve for a so called 'large'. The vegetable stack was miniscule & there was a glass chip in the 'sauce'. Not a good experience. To be fair, the staff were pleasant & gave an immediate refund for... More
