This is a beautiful restaurant but that's it it's a restaurant so quite expensive for lunch. The views are stunning and the food was excellent but the service was poor. The waitress was very pleasant but just not around enough . Maybe that's because we sat upstairs. I would have liked more bread but I'd finished my soup and didn't... More

Not only is Bwyty Mawddach a beautiful transformation of a very old cowshed, it is brimming with professional expertise, which as a recently diagnosed coeliac, makes for a very welcome experience. Served in great glasses, oval at the base and circular at the rim, our soft drinks were served with just a touch that gave you confidence that you were... More

We went to Bwyty for a birthday Sunday lunch and it was great. We had a wonderful view from our table - which was in the window - and the staff are attentive but not fussy. And the food was glorious. £23 for a 3 course lunch and each morsel was perfectly cooked. Home made ice cream was especially lovely.

We ate here on New Year's Eve and it was excellent, as usual. A perfect champagne cocktail to start the evening (in the lovely bar), then three exquisite courses upstairs in the beautiful restaurant. All the staff were friendly and attentive, the atmosphere was relaxed despite being busy, and everyone I could see was clearly enjoying the food & evening... More

The restaurant is brilliant and a surprising find that you wouldn't necessarily expect in the area. The food is great, service is always faultless and the restaurant itself is very pretty and set perfectly to maximise the beautiful vista. I have only ever eaten here as part of a large group. It has always been great and I look forward... More

13 of us ate here for my mother's birthday last week. The party included 2 children and we are a fairly boisterous bunch who hadn't seen each other for a while so not a simple meal for two. We pre-ordered everything as requested and the communication was good beforehand. On the whole we were really happy with everything - my... More

The setting with a view of Cadr Idris is lovely, though still easy to reach. We had booked on short notice for Sunday lunch, so we felt lucky to get a table. We were expecting gastro pub level food having seen a single AA rosette. All I can say is that the inspectors must have caught them on an off... More
