Lovely bistro

After being at Calley's Cafe for breakfast we came to Jakes for an evening meal. It was a lovely little bistro, it felt very homely and cosy. The food was delicious and the service was brilliant. Will definately come back when visiting Caernarfon again

The food was absoloutely delicious (as always) and the... More

It was freshly cooked but lacked taste, it wasn't a bistro, it was like a little café, music was loud and the person serving was constantly whistling, which was annoying, was there to enjoy meal and have some peace and quiet

Nice food, good service, friendly staff. I have been there a few times, always nice but its starting to look a bit shabby. I thought it would have been tarted up a bit before summer

The fish from my fish and chips was a supermarket fillet, although my chips were freshly cooked and tasty. The child's cottage pie was served in a chipped and dirty dish with water swimming around the edge, and was so hot coming from the microwave it couldn't be eaten. Having used the toilet myself I changed my baby's nappy in... More

I ordered lamb and was served what appeared to be pre-cooked lamb shank smothered in a tasteless dark brown, almost black, gravy.
