Booked a table for six. We have all visited before on several occasions. Tonight, however we were all seriously disappointed with both the food and the service. Neither would warrant a return visit. When you are with a group you are always reluctant to complain...More

Visited here on a recent visit to Conwy. Food was very nice with decent service. A varied choice on the menu which should cover most. The only thing stopping the 5 star is I thought everything was just a case of trying too hard.

Not knowing Conwy, we did not find the bistro on the first attempt (it was hidden in a yard off the Chapel Street address) but we are very pleased that we persisted! The food was delicious and very well presented, quite different from the many...More

Beautiful food, a lovely ambience and fab service made our visit perfect. From the starters to desserts we were spoilt with delicious choices. All the food was perfection on a plate, but the star of the show in my humble opinion was the dessert for...More

We visit Conwy every now and then and had read reviews on this bistro. We went in for lunch, very close to their closing time really. Not many in, but they only do 12 to 2.00 for lunch. It is also off the beaten track...More

Hello, We were there in late July. We sat outside with our kids, ranging 13-17. While there, there were other parties dining with younger children. Hope that helps.

We are a small family run Bistro in the historic town walls of Conwy. Everything is homemade such as bread, ice cream; our menus change at least 4 times a year with the seasons. We make our own gluten free bread and adapt our menu accordingly for any dietary requirements.
