Yet again, an excellent experience. Very friendly waitresses and attentive at all times. All six of us had a different menu item and all agreed that they were excellent in taste, quantity and presentation. This is definitely one of our local favourites and will always...come highly recommended. Thank you all.More

The food was excellent but the menu was limited which is what you’d expect for a small restaurant in the off season. The waitresses were friendly and attentive. If I was picky they could have had a wider choice of non-alcoholic beers, stocked a few...bottles of soda water and a box of mixed herbal teas.More

If you are in the area you must visit this little gem. I had cajun chicken salad starter and pork main, both where fantastic, very tasty. Staff/service very good.

Ideal spot for a special meal out while in Tywyn. A good range of interesting dishes, all served in generous portions, the only down side of which is the consequential lack of opportunity to sample the dessert menu! The option of sharers as well as...starters is great for small group dining. Friendly young staff who are welcoming and on the ball.More

Great food, good service, only slight negative would be the amount of salt put in the dishes but other than that 👍🏼

A charming little restaurant with excellent food and lovely service. We enjoyed the dressed crab and the lamb, no room for desserts!

My family returned to Tywyn for nostalgic trip remembering our childhood holidays there. We booked Proper Gander for the last night and what absolute treat. Warm welcome , amazing menu, superb local produce and chefs who really know what they are doing. Very reasonably priced...and relaxed atmosphere.More
