Ate here both nights - right decision

We ate here both nights we stayed in Llangollen (the Corn Mill was rather above itself with twiddly meals - no thanks!). The portions were large, the food hot and freshly cooked and the staff sufficiently attentive for us to be very happy to eat there. Recommended.

We stopped for lunch and we're disappointed with the food. There was a mix up to start with as we ordered the mint lamb and they brought out ham, obviously not hearing us correctly. I also had the ploughman plate and was disappointed as it lacked flavour and excitement. The best thing at the Dee Bistro Cafe was the scenery... More

Had an excellent evening meal here overlooking the river Dee. I had the chicken tagliatelle while my wife had sea bass, both dishes were well presented and tasted fantastic. The value was superb, with deserts all at £3.50. Our total bill was under £25, not bad for a night out with a view of the Dee. Staff were warm and... More

Saw this place a few weeks ago when we passed through Llangollen and thought we would give it a try. Researched on trip advisor before we ventured inside, appeared to have good reviews. My wife and I ordered chicken dishes, the food was excellent, good portion sizes and hot. The decor needs a bit of updating but do not let... More

Whatever you do don't be put off by the external appearances of this bistro, this is a diners gem. The menu offers a wide choice of meals and snacks at prices which do not punish your wallet. Dishes served were plentiful and really tasty. The staff were friendly an helpful. As a bonus, some tables have a great view of... More

We were in Llangollen for a day out and called in to Dee Side Cafe to book a table for 6.30. We had never eaten there before but liked the menu and thought it may get busy. We were right - when we arrived there were only two tables available and one of those was ours! In a fantastic setting... More

Stopped here for lunch, having been to many of the other local eateries over the years. The waiters are very pleasant and so hard working- tables are cleared and cleaned quickly. Decor a bit basic but the food makes up for it . The steak pie ( puff pastry lid) was £7.95 and was the best I have had in... More

This is our second visit to this little bistro, which we again used as a lunch stop whilst passing through Llangollen. Just on the bridge, we sat at one of the three outside tables, and although there was a bit of a breeze, we were nicely sheltered. The food is good; the minted lamb baguette comes with chunky chips and... More

Greeted with a smile - we chose the outdoor tables BUT the guy looking after us said he had a warm table inside IF we got cold! Great rapport built straight away and all restaurants should visit to see how you look after guests! Lovely view, lovely fresh tasty food and a few laughs thrown in for good measure! Highly... More
