At the Sibonne Beach Hotel, Bay Bistro is a romantic spot that is about as close to Grace Bay Beach as one can get without dining on the sand – although this is also an option at this restaurant. Make reservations (recommended, especially in season) for the covered deck, the open-air patio, or right on the beach, with your feet in the sand. The menu is definitely fish and seafood focused and in season local fishermen deliver lobster is daily directly to the restaurant. If there is lobster on the menu, it's what to order. Although the fish-and-chips are not bad either, and should you be craving turf rather than surf there is also a beef tenderloin entree that melts in the mouth and is cooked exactly to order. For a starter try the coffee-rubbed tuna, which is rubbed lightly in wasabi, and is possibly the best thing on the menu if you like fish. Wash everything down with homemade ice cream for dessert.
On weekends, Bistro Bay is a go to brunch spot and does the best eggs Benedicts in town (actually it is one of the few places to even make a Benedict, let alone a successful one), which should be washed down with the house mimosa.
Also if you happen to be in town during a full moon, this is a great place to dine as they put on full moon beach barbeques that include a beach bonfire after a dinner of roast suckling pig and grilled shrimp among other items.
