We have eaten at the Watkins Restaurant at the Empire Hotel, Llandudno for many years so I thought it was about time I record that this, by far, is my favourite restaurant experience in Llandudno. This is still a family run hotel and it's the same family as when I used to work at the Empire as a wine waiter... More

We had the 5 course menu for £23.50 per person, and boy was it value for money, excellent food, drinks a bit pricey but that's to be expected as it is a very... More

Noticed set menu outside the restaurant which seemed very good value. So entered as a group of three on spec (we hadn't booked but as it was a Tuesday evening we thought it would be fine). On entering, and asking for a table of three, the waitress started to point out tables we could sit at, however then a waiter... More

Description
Watkins Co restaurant in Llandudno is an equation that comes out right every time. Take an award-winning restaurant, set it in one of Llandudno���s top hotels, create an historic Victorian dining stuffed with formal elegance, add in an inventive chef with a dab hand at classic favourites and it���s elementary -- Watkins is a hit. Half the menu is seasonal, locally-sourced a la carte deliciousness, while the other half is a daily-changing table d���hote menu offering excellent value. People love the home-made lasagne and the daily roast, but we recommend the more inventive creations, too. Watkins Co���s service, impressive children���s menu and a pocket-friendly wine list get top marks.
