Visited here a couple of times delicious food and fab service, and not sat round waiting been courses, never rushed at the end of a meal which is very important and key to returning custom

Such a nice place. Friendly staff and lovely food. I have never been disappointed here. It is not very spacious but that doesn't matter, it is a great little place to try and I'm sure if you try it once you will return.

Ate here to celebrate 3 friends birthday's while on a weekend away in Conwy. It was a Saturday night and we received a warm and friendly welcome. Every course we had was lovely, with a great choice of locally sourced food. Service was spot on and nothing too much trouble for our group of 6. The welsh lamb was delicious... More

The somewhat hard to find Watson's was well worth the trip. An elegant bistro with a delightful menu. The food was outstanding, from the soup to the dessert, it was a celebration of deliciousness.

I love this place - quirky, great menu, lovely service and excellent food. The local goats cheese was amazing. Best place to eat in Conwy by far!

Had a fabulous meal in this very welcoming and cosy bistro. Looked at various restaurants around Conwy and decided to book this one as the menu sounded so tasty. We were delighted with our choice. Lovely ambience in the place, warm and perfectly lit, friendly staff and scrumptious 3 course dinner. We each chose different items from the menu and... More

We ate at Watson with friends for the third time and the food was once again of a very high quality. The four of us had starter and main course, 2 bottles of wine and the bill was £140 inc tip. This was Saturday night during the food festival weekend. The staff are very attentive and the dining is very... More

My wife and I took my aunt to this very interesting-looking bistro recently. I have to say that in all areas it was excellent - food, atmosphere and service, and all in a lovely settling next to the castle. What a gem!
