Over the last week, I ate dinner here on three occasions and on each occasion I was impressed with the taste flavours, the portions sizes, and the calm efficient yet friendly service. A good selection of half bottles of wine added to my enjoyment. Truly a gem among the restaurants in this part of Wales

A long established very well run restaurant with good service and excellent cooking. If driving park by Harlech castle, there is not much space in the cul de sac by the restaurant. The cosy lounge with good views over Morfa Harlech. Wines are well chosen and reasonably priced. A starter of Scallops with black pudding was generous, nicely presented and... More
