Charming bistro overlooking Holyhead harbour.
I have been there a number of times but won't visit again.
I thought that the food was mediocre and not particularly good value.
But I'm guessing that depends on what you choose and how busy it is.
I had an open prawn sandwich which lacked style and taste.
My wife had vegetable soup which also failed to excite the taste buds.
Beer was £4 a pint which is fairly expensive for this area.

The food here is beautiful. You could pile on the pounds just looking at it. Starters, main courses and sweets. The staff are very friendly, the views are stunning right over the harbour.

Probably the best meal we have had since arriving in Wales. Excellent risotto. The lamb was cooked perfectly. Wonderful service. Highly recommended.

A lovely meal in a great location. The dinner was well cooked and the staff were helpful and polite. Booking recommended at weekends. Lunch was also very enjoyable especially as we were able to sit out on the decking making the most of the view.

After an absence of a couple of years I have visited this small and very attractive restaurant several times in the last month and have found the food delicious and beautifully presented. Because the meals are cooked to order you have to be prepared to wait a little but in my opinion it's well worth the wait. The service is friendly and helpful, and there are great views from the windows. I really look forward to my next visit.
