We had a 4 day trip to this area and having found the Dee Side Cafe Bistro, made it our eating place for the rest of our stay. Great value comes a close second to the excellent food and service at this gem. Well worth a visit.

Visited here on our trip to Llangollen for our wedding anniversary! Pricing was excellent and really good quality food. The chips were beautiful! I had the steak baguette and my only criticism was that it was overdone for me, however I suppose that is personal preference! Would definitely return when in the area.

A very busy restaurant with a great view of the river. Despite being busy we did not wait long for our meal. The homemade soup was excellent. Main course was much better than I would expect from what looks like a busy tourist cafe. In fact, if you go inside (I was outside due to wheelchair) you can see that... More

During a family outing we vistited the Dee Side cafe and we pleasantly surprised! The food was excellent, the staff were extremely friendly, and the atmosphere was great. It's in a fantastic location; the cafe overlooks a train track complete with active steam train.

Always call in for a latte when I'm in Llan and the place is always busy with tourists and families . Greeted by friendly Warm staff with a cracking view of the River Dee . They also have a bar so if you don't fancy a tea or a coffee you can have a proper drink instead .

A cute little restaurant on the side of the river. Stopped by twice. The first was for dinner, the second time was for lunch. For dinner, I had the linguini and my partner had the pork, both delicious. Deserts were tasty. The second time during lunch, I had a burger. The burgers were delicious, you could see the herbs inside... More

We were looking for a light snack and a cup of tea. Found it here. Nice location overlooking the river and watched a steam engine pulling out of the station. Food was okay and service good. One complaint the minted lamb was not very minty but I suppose that is personal preference. I would go there again
