Organised a Christmas party at Jakes on 6th December. This is the second time I have booked a large party here at christmas time. We arrived and they were ready to serve us once we were seated. The food arrived hot and I had a lovely home made veg soup. The turkey dinner arrived after a short wait. We bought... More

We ate here again last week, we have been visiting for eight years now and were welcomed like friend's, it was a quiet night so we could have a good chat as well. The food was as usual plentiful and cooked as you would like it, I had the ribs as a starter and the pork and Sue had Garlic... More

We visited Jakes Bistro, Caernarfon for my birthday on the 21.11.14. I had such a brilliant time I felt I should let you trip advisor go-ers know about this little gem! It’s a little bistro within the Caernarfon Castle walls and is very cosy and romantic. It is extremely well priced for the quality of the food and it is... More

Despite great reviews, we found the food to be average at best. There was plenty of it, but the food was similar to what you would get in a pub. The restaurant feels really 'cramped' and as the kitchen is so close to the restaurant, the smell at times can be over powering. The toilet is awful and is in... More

We walked in tonight on spec having read other reviews and they were spot on. My wife had the spinnach cannellenoni (excuse the spelling..??), I had the lamb and both were simple and spectacular. The ladies and gent working there are uber friendly and its a real family atmosphere. Well worth a try. Seriously.

A really lovely place to go out for a meal, not posh, but the food is fantastic, the set meal is excellent value and the staff are so lovely and helpful. A bit let down by the loud music coming from the wine bar down the street but not this cannot be helped and didn't spoil our enjoyment. Really small... More
