    We have been going to Little Bay for years. We have never had a bad meal in there. We have taken friends there who have enjoyed it. The staff are always very friendly.

    The food is always good at Little Bay, Croydon. Although we were both placed in quite a tight booth for my friend to get into it, apart from that, the service was excellent, and what one always gets when one dines there.

    The staff were very attentive and helpful. The resturant had lots of appeal if not a little cramped. It wasn’t full but I imagine if it were, it would be uncomfortable to stand up, put coats on and manœuvré out to the door without brushing up closely to someone’s table, not what I’d want really. The main course was not what I expected at all, it was supposed to be a profiterole with crab, I had to search to see it taste the crab. It was full of oily onions, to be honest I was very disappointed with the starter. However the main course angus cheeseburger with sweet potato fries was cooked to perfection, and the Eaton mess was divine. Would go again but maybe would sit somewhere else and Not have the same starter. Please look into the portion of crab that is supposed to be inside as I’m positive I had less than a quarter of a teaspoon, and this spoilt it for me greatly.

    very poor cuts of meat for the T-bone steak and rib eye sunday roast. potatoes were just about cooked and half the plate was cold. and the bathroom was in a disgraceful state. Little Bay standards are dropping very quickly. will not be returning i’m afraid.

    The restaurant was very accommodating when changes to the reservation was requested. The staff were very friendly & helpful. Lovely atmosphere, lovely setting. Food delicious. It was especially lovely as it was a double celebration for Mother’s Day & my birthday. Selected as I’ve been on several occasions before and knew I would have a lovely time. Will recommend.

    A seventies throwback with quirky decor and a menu to match. Nonetheless the food was of good quality and plentiful. Service was attentive and quick. And the price was right. A nice little neighbourhood restaurant

    Lovely restaurant with its own unique charm, lovely atmosphere with quirky booths to dine in which is a great touch. The food is excellent with good service and there was even an opera singer there on the evening we went which was a welcomed bonus, Cheers 🥂

    Not many early evening dinners like us tonight but restaurant gradually filled out with happy dinners. Menu had few changes but still difficult to choose due to the excellent dishes. Kitchen consistently uses fresh ingredients to produce high quality dishes. dinning area staff are friendly and remember the customers that exchange greetings with them.

    We loved it. The food, the service, the pricing all great, surpassed expectations. Definately will be back. Thanks for a great evening. It was a great place for Valentine's which this year was a Wednesday so I had hoped for opera singing, like it said on your website.

    Food not only delicious but reasonably priced, service and ambience excellent

    Food and service was really good, We were looked after very well by the whole team. The front of the house lady was very welcoming and patient with us and so are the bar and the wait staffs. We celebrated my husband's Oathtaking Ceremony and we invited his aunt and husband who also loved the food. Aesthetic wise, the place just needs updating, as the pipe was exposed to where we sat but nonetheless, everything was spot on.

    This would be one of your best experiences in a restaurant in Croydon. Without a doubt, I visited this restaurant on New occasions and had some super times. Birthdays celebrations etc pay a visit. It’s well worth it.

    We loved the Mediterranean atmosphere and the quirky decor in this restaurant. The menu is always the same but that doesn't matter as the quality is very good and the staff are friendly and provided excellent service. We have been coming here for years and will definitely be back.

    Such a delightful little restaurant, ambience was perfect, the staff were so attentive. Nina was so welcoming and friendly, this was our first time here and so nice to find somewhere where you can hear yourself talk ! Wonderful theatre setting also. Only comment we would make would be the side salads were perhaps pre packed salad and not too fresh. Otherwise the food was amazing and such good value.

    This restaurant was recommended by a friend and by far the best recommendation I have ever been given. The food was 10/10 the atmosphere was 10/10 and the service was flawless!! Grace served us and she suggested the Lamb shoulder and I'll definitely have that again.

    Starter… chicken liver pate was unusual colour Chicken wings would have been better with a tasty coating and not plain roasted Main … I had chicken breast with mozzarella. It was nice and fries were good Cheese burger… served in what looked like half a loaf of bread. Too much. Dessert… Christmas pudding good Apple cake Ok. Food in general not as good as previous visits. Will consider more if we return.
