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.

The Bay has long enjoyed a good reputation as a somewhat pricey venue but with excellent fare. Our recent experience was mixed. The food was indeed excellent but the service was very slow friendly. The atmosphere was very good also. The food was a little...on the pricey side but not outrageous so overall the visit had more pluses than minuses. However the Bay seems to have slipped somewhat from its previous high standardsMore

4 of ate here. 2 had wings, 1 scallops and a prawn pil pil for starters. All really good. My prawn linguine main was excellent. The chicken bang bang and burger were enjoyed. I had a taste of the seafood lasagne which was superb. The...Eton mess for dessert was ok. Would prefer all strawberries rather than mixed berries. We had 2 beers, 1 sparkling water and a tea. With an average tip, it was €200 for the 4 of us so it isn't cheap. Service was good.More

This place has always been somewhat on the pricey side...now it's totally on the pricey side. Hard to believe that we had to pay €10 per head upfront in order to secure our booking...and for a Sunday morning reservation to boot when cancelled reservations no...doubt get instantly snapped up. The breakfast itself was a mixed affair...for example, it's hard to get an Irish Breakfast wrong, but here, it’s bland at best. The bill (for 7 people) came to a whopping €161, including a mandatory 10% service charge for service that was barely efficient. It took about 15 minutes to pay the bill as there was some bizarre faffing about going on at the till. This place would do well to remember what it was that built its reputation in its better days.More

I went to this restaurant recently with friends. Their desserts were delicious and we loved their wine options too. The interior is nice and intimate/cosy. We all cleared our plates.

Was really looking forward to visiting this restaurant as I’d heard great things about it! Service was excellent but the food was very bland and completely overpriced! The chicken wings were priced at 15.95-the most expensive plate of chicken wings I have ever got in...a restaurant! The sauce was very overpowering on the wings so much so that they were unpleasant to eat! Fish and chips was ok but agree with the previous reviewer regarding the batter on the fish! It was very unusual and did not taste pleasant! My husband had the burger which he thought was just ok! All in all a disappointing experience!More

Probably to attract more people into the restaurant at lunchtime, when demand is lower. If you want better value, go at lunchtime!
