You could stand on a corner and look around until a restaurant sign draws you in. But we've got a better idea. Each week, Glen Cove Patch picks a great restaurant either in town or nearby that is worth checking out. Here's this week's choice:
La Cantina Bay
Can’t decide between Mexican or Italian tonight? Now, you don’t have to. La Cantina Bay, located adjacent to the Tides Motel, has got your indecisiveness covered.
The gorgeous view of the Long Island Sound only adds to the authentic, delicious meals this restaurant serves up.
After being seated promptly by gregarious wait staff, tortilla chips and homemade salsa is brought to the table. Customers may require a few extra minutes to peruse the menu, as their selection of Mexican and Italian platters is extensive.
Ask for their guacamole appetizer; it’s fresh, and packs just a hint of heat. The baked clams are also fresh, and stuffed to the brim. The shrimp parmigiana entree comes with plump, juicy shrimp that are breaded and covered in melted cheese over a bed of your choice of pasta.
Their portions are on the large size, so be sure to either bring your appetite, or bring home leftovers. Your stomach will thank you.
La Cantina Bay is also located next to the Bayville Adventure Park, where patrons can enjoy a little pirate-themed mini golf before dinner.
Catering services of all types are available, either on-site or at a desired location.
