Going on TA’s reviews I booked this restaurant on our first day of the holiday as we didn’t want to travel far , it was superb. You pay for the main meal and get a starter and desert,so come hungry. What a pity it’s only...open Friday and Saturday as we would have gone again. All four of us had something different and all were excellentMore

After reading so many fantastic reviews of The Village Bistro we decided to call in on a Saturday evening on the first day of our stay at Graigclwyd Springs Cottages (mentioned as I will do another rave review on the cottages next). However, because of...the popularity of the Bistro we could not dine as there were no tables but Diane the owner took my mobile & promised to text me if she had availability the following Friday (The Bistro only opens Friday & Saturday evenings) she was true to her word and we reserved a table on the Friday - I am so glad she did, the food & the service we received was ‘first class’ the ambiance of the bistro was amazing with tea lights & venitian blinds and the tables were spaced well apart for privacy. The food was outstanding and melt in the mouth, in fact I would go as far to say that Diane & her team deserve a Michelin Star. Well done Diane & we will call if we visit Penmaenmawr again.More

Oh my what a great place this is. Formal enough to make the occasion special, but relaxed enough to let you have a great time without having to put a suit on. There are so few places that get the atmosphere just right, but then...to top it with delicious food was really enjoyable Unusual pricing structure (pick a priced main & the starter & dessert is included) which could be a touch clearer (there’s a sign in the window but not on the menu) but which means the meal is great value for hearty eaters, less so for those wanting less. The food itself is great. Good selection of items, including fresh seasonal dishes & lots of gooey puddings. Huge portions. Friendly, attentive service that meant we had everything we needed. In summary this is a dream of a place. Visit if you canMore

We came here for a friend's birthday. We were absolutely blown away with the standard of food. One of our party is vegetarian and he thought it was outstanding. Its a must to visit here, you will not be disappointed.

Lovely meal and service on a Saturday night. Good menu selection - you pay the price of the main and get the starter and desert included. Friendly service, piping hot food and reasonable prices - what more can you ask for?!

Have dined here a few times over the years when in the area and it’s one of the best restaurants I’ve ever been to. The atmosphere and ambience in the restaurant is warm and welcoming. Diane took my booking and is so friendly and kind,...as are all the team. The food is incredible. Such generous portions and the highest quality ingredients. The menu is so varied with specials on a starter main and dessert board that are constantly changing alongside the regular classic dishes but whatever you choose, you will not go wrong. Already thinking about my next visit!More

After seeing the fantastic reviews on Trip Advisor we decided to book my mums birthday meal here. The lively lady that booked us in warned us not to eat much before coming and we soon realised why! The portions are very generous and every dish...we ordered tasted delicious. We will definitely be returning.More
