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

Lovely little eatery with impeccable service. Was very impressed with the ladies who served the food knowing who was having what even though they didn't take our order - nice touch. As was the Rhubarb Custard Sorbet between starter and main. Only one critique -...More
