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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We ate the worst fish and chips ever at the Bayview restaurant, small portion, bad quality, what a disappointment, 18.90. We also ordered a summer salad, 12.50 that was a further disappointment, the dressing was disgusting for a lack of a better way to describe...it. I asked for butter twice, it was never brought to our table. 10% tip is added to your bill automatically.More

My Boyfriend and I went to eat here on a whim via Google search and were so impressed! Beautiful view overlooking the bay, romantic and classy atmosphere and the cuisine did not disappoint! Attentive and friendly staff and don’t skip the wine or dessert menu!

Had lunch here on Saturday Sept. 3rd. Family of 6. Probably the worst place I have ever eaten and I am not a fussy eater so that says a lot. As soon as we sat down the feeling wasn't good. The menus were just laminated...sheets of paper which were damaged so between all of the staff nobody cared enough to sort out this simple item. Service was quick but the food was very poor. I had the fish and chips, 1 out of 10 at best, the wife and kids had burgers & pizzas and these were very poor too. Bill came out and it was €112.86 so I paid it with my card and left as we had to get the ferry. While I was on the ferry I looked more closely at the receipt only to see that the server ( the girl ) who brought the bill had added a 10% tip without my consent or knowledge. Now I know I should have looked at the receipt more closely in the restaurant so I accept this as my fault but I wasn't expecting this as any other restaurant I have eaten in usually have the option of paying the tip and don't sneak it in. I strongly advise people to avoid this place and not just because of the bad food but also the level of untrust this has placed in the staff.More

Visited with my family. Vegetarian option was chips with limp salad, terrible. They didn't have most of the drinks we requested, overpriced by far. Bad experience.

When we arrived in here it was around 12 after travelling for 4 hours, we were starving, so we both ordered the fish & chip. Fish wasn't fresh as you would expect and there was a 4.50€ service charged applied. For 2 fish & chip...with stupid seasoning all over them, two small sparkling water it was nearly 50€...don't bother going here.More

Had lunch here when we arrived off the ferry, we both ordered fish and chips as being on an island we assumed it would be pretty good unfortunately it was mediocre at best, we were so disappointed as it cost just under €50 for both...dishes with 2 sparkling waters, after my husband paid i looked at the visa receipt and there was a 10% service charge taken as well which we did not request to add, all in all as far as we can see they are not relying on repeat custom as most visitors are on a day trip so they actually don't care if your experience is good or not, definitely would not recommendMore

What can I say? during the lunch, a few mussels were pale and with a weird texture. During our walk, we had to come back by car because my partner got sick and started vomiting. Neither the fish & chips was fresh. Never again.

We had a meal on Aug 2nd and we won't return. The food wasn't abit nice. My wife got the mussels in wat was ment to be white wine sauce 🤔 absolutely no flavour. I had a burger with a burnt bun. The young man...that served our table hadn't a clue of the menu or drinks but maybe it was his first day. If I'm honest it's was our worst meal on the island sorry guys we won't returnMore

The staff are absolutely lovely and really friendly, but the food was horrible over cooked and over priced, also our main was brought out before our starter by mistake so I assume all our mains just sat there under the hot plate as we finished...our meal. One of us had a pizza which was supposed to come with a side salad, we reminded them of this after waiting ages for it and got served a bowl of chopped up ice berg with no dressing. Also we were well over an hour waiting for our food. Then as we took our first bite of our main we were told we had to choose our dessert because the kitchen was closing then told they only had like 2 cheesecakes left anyways. Depressing meal.More

If you are looking for an amazing restaurant on Inishmor .I highly recommend visiting The Bay View Restaurant. The food was amazing. and The Staff are all so professional, kind and genuinely care about their guests. The chowder , Fish&Chips and desserts tasted delicious. I...had such a great experience that I returned immediately Very clean restaurant and restrooms. This establishment rates five stars and more! It should be noted I am originally from Dublin Ireland and lived in the United States for over thirty years and served in the United States Marines all over the world. I definitely know a great reason from all my life experiences and travels all over the world. I definitely will return in the near future! A must visit if you are looking for great food. You definitely won’t be disappointed!More

We were told that this place has all homemade food . So the day after we arrived we went for lunch. Had the fish and chips. Amazing isn’t even the word! Beyond amazing. Then everywhere we go we have mojitos. These were the best ever...from all our travels! Kudos to this restaurant! Oh forgot to mention went for seconds the following day! Yep that’s how good it wasMore

My friends and I stopped here for a late lunch after hours of biking and before catching the outward bound ferry. Two of us had the fish and chips, which was absolutely scrumptious, and the other had a burger. Service was slow, and we actually...had to go back in to track down our drinks--maybe the restaurant is understaffed? This worked out okay for us, since we had some time flexibility, and the food was definitely worth it. But I would definitely be aware of this when you go, especially if it's a busier time of day.More
