Fabulous service and impeccable presentation. Second time back. Steak during first time was better but still good. Love the tonka ice cream and popcorn chicken. Creme brulee was good too
Staff were extremely friendly and went beyond what was expected in service. The food is exceptional for a relatively good price! Restaurant looks average from the outside, but completely exceeds expectations as soon as you step into it’s warm and welcoming atmosphere. Would recommend!!
A most relaxing intimate dining experience complete with attentive and knowledgeable staff. The exquisitely presented food, while in itself a feast for the eyes, the combination of quality produce and passion in the kitchen is incomparable.
Great food, excellent service, ambience throughout the restaurant, and value for money. I love this restaurant and highly recommend it. Book in advance if you want to dine there on a Friday or Saturday as it very popular. Booking weeknights also advised.
Juniper & Bay's ambience was extremely charming. Attentive & friendly staff added to a wonderful experience where a special occasion was celebrated with friends. All three meals were superb, presentation +++. We have decided to make Juniper & Bay a monthly treat and work our way through their extensive menu. We went on a Tuesday night which allowed us to BYO wine - a delicious Leeuwin Estate Drop. I haven't stopped recommending this venue which is very well priced.
The ambiance is wonderful, relaxing and cosy. This is not something you come across often. One rather feels that somewhere in the restaraunt there is a fireplace place roaring, that;’s how cosy it is. Staff are friendly, relaxed and welcoming. They are all concerned that you are enjoying yourself. The food is just beautiful full stop! When I leave I simply think, I’m not telling anybody about this this place ,it’s so GOOD, I don’t want to be standing in the queue to get a table so to speak, when I come next time. Just go!
As usual at Juniper & Bay, our party of four were greeted nicely (despite our arriving earlier than our booking), we received excellent service throughout the visit and the food was excellent. Overall an excellent and enjoyable experience that we look forward to repeating.
Food is just beautiful and I can't fault the service which unfortunately is rare these days. They staff were genuinely helpful and friendly, not pretentious at all despite it being a fine dining restaurant. We had 3 young children who were catered for with a comfy high chair, colouring in and they had kids menus of which the food was also very lovely. Thank you so much, it's so hard to go out to somewhere nice with children!
The service is similar to the service you receive in a good restaurant in Europe, where wait staff are proud of their profession and take their work seriously. The food is also what you would expect from a restaurant where the chef(s) are trained in the basics of European cuisine but then add twists and touches that are interesting and surprising, with flavours and textures that contrast and complement and enhance the dishes.
Food & service at Juniper & Bay was as good as it always is. It would be my favourite restaurant at the moment - the food is excellent & I look forward to going again soon!
