"We live locally and this Brasserie at The Bay is our favourite restaurant. The service is superb and the food is just wonderful with dishes that really make the most of Devon's fabulous local produce. While I would like to encourage everybody to try it for themselves, the selfish part of me is worried that I won't be able to get a table next time I want to visit - which will be very soon!"
