I picked this restaurant from the reviews on tripadvisor - it certainly lived up to the hype. Staff were very friendly and informative - advising me that the kitchen was very busy but would I like some complimentary bread to start whilst I was ordering - nice touch. The choice was exceptional and we both went for something off the... More

My husband and I chose to dine at this restaurant having read such glowing reviews on it. We booked a table some weeks before, which was necessary given its popularity. The restaurant is a small bistro style with quite eclectic food choices. Excellent service, food and ambience. Would highly recommend!

The atmosphere was good, staff very friendly even when dealing with customers that where a little noisy and badly behaved, staff offered to move us to another table if wanted. Food was lovely apart from the put a chicken goujon on my plate which was the fish platter and my husband had the fish on his chicken plate. Would recommended... More

We went here on a Sunday evening for my daughter's birthday with a seven year old in tow. Was slightly worried that there wouldn't be anything for him to eat as there was no children's menu but the staff couldn't have been lovelier making him a special non alcoholic cocktail and taking bits and pieces from the menu to make...

For the first time since we have been to on the hill, I am really disappointed not to be able to give it the five stars l normally do. The service as always was top notch, but the food just didn't blow me away. The mushroom starter was a little gritty. My main the fisherman's lunch was good, just not... More

Excellent quality food. Good choice menu. Very understanding and accommodating of food intolerance could not have been more helpful and understanding. Really went the extra mile. No rush to leave the table. Food was really yummy.

As others have written, it is cosy and informal so don't expect liveried waiters and a doorman. But the service is of a high standard, nonetheless, and, even more importantly, so is the food. Often prior booking is recommended, at least for evenings. It is also one of the few eateries in Ruthin (takeaways excepted, of course) that open on... More

What a fabulous find this restaurant was! Whilst staying at Ruthin Castle for the weekend, we booked well in advance for this restaurant, and were so glad we got in. This was the highlight of our weekend as the food was fabulous and the owners adorable. They were so welcoming and hands-on, nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely... More
