Modern European
Brasserie at the Bay is a relative newcomer to the dining scene in Torquay (though regretfully a good proportion has been spent in lockdown). Nevertheless in that time we have gathered an enthusiastic following of both locals and visitors to the bay and award winning too. Offering modern British cuisine, Chef Callum revels in celebrating the wealth of fabulous local produce from land and sea with which this beautiful part of the UK is blessed. The ambience in our contemporary styled intimate restaurant is very definitely relaxed and we offer a warm and friendly welcome which makes it a great place to enjoy great food. We also have, weather permitting, five tables available for al fresco dining on our deck. We look forward to welcoming you soon.

Bon appétit!

Our first visit and we benefited from dining at 6pm so had 3 courses for £28 which made it a very good value meal. The full priced menu looked pretty expensive but the food certainly was exceptional, lovely atmosphere and super staff. My main course, Creedy carver corn fed chicken supreme, confit leg, burnt corn, prosciutto crisp, tarragon and red wine jus came in a dome with hickory type smoke which was not only very theatrical but added a super flavour to the whole dish. To be honest, the portions were fairly large for this type of cuisine and I felt over full (my lack of self-control!!) after 3 courses. Maybe serve less food and take a couple of £s of the prices. I know this won't suit the folk who like whacking great platefuls of food so I guess it's about who you are aiming to attract. Overall though, a great addition to Torquay's restaurant choices.

Our 3rd visit in the last 2 months. This time superb Carpaccio of Venison for me and Gin cured Salmon starter for my wife, both bursting with flavour. Followed by beautifully cooked Halibut mains for both (see menu), again full of flavour complementing the fish and to finish excellent desserts. The chef is very talented and highly skilled. Service is efficient, friendly and Covid safe. The Wine list is reasonable priced for the quality

Had a lovely meal here. Me and my partner both had the 28 day aged fillet steak and it was absolutely amazing :)
Only downside was that the banoffee tart was slight burnt on the top
Other then that it was a lovely meal thanks very much

Although there were other diners in the restaurant, it lacked atmosphere.
The food and service was good.
Although, at no point when ordering our food did the waitress ask if we wanted to order any side dishes (potatoes, veg). We said, oh do we need to order potatoes.

We booked the restaurant for our first night and we were not disappointed the food was out of this world. Beautifully plated and tasted amazing. The breakfast also was of top quality. Cooked fresh. Even the granola which was so good was homemade! All local produce. Highly recommended

The ambiance wasn’t helped by being seated by the kitchen door the service wasn’t great 1 waiter running around making quite a racket

As for the food no real taste with the starter, and the lamb main was very fatty and grisly afraid to say not a great experience

We selected Brasserie on the Bay on July 5 when restaurants started opening after lockdown. The security measures meant we felt safe and could thoroughly enjoy our delicious meal. Despite wearing facemasks the servers were friendly and approachable. Would definitely recommend.

We drove 20 miles to go to this establishment, as it was one of the few in the area, that offers Vegan options, not just veggie covered in cheese. Food was very good, and excellent value. On a February evening the restaurant was very quiet, but apart from that it was very good, Recommended.

Great stay at the Meadfoot Bay and our dinner at the Brasserie was an unexpected gem. We had thought it would be simple refuelling but found it to be a real treat. Lovely menu, beautifully presented ... we even had a pudding which is unusual for us.
