A gem of a place

This little bistro is an absolute dream of a place both in terms of quality of food and the reasonable prices. The food is well cooked and presented and served by efficient and friendly staff who know their business inside out. It is definitely 1000% better that it's larger neighbour 100m up river... read more

Dee Side Cafe Bistro is right on the river side. It was very busy when we turned up on a Saturday about 1pm and we had to wait about 15 minutes for a table. The staff were very friendly and ensured we had a menu to look at while we waiting and even took our order before we had a... More

We have passed this place many times and have admired the menu, but it looked a bit cramped from the outside. So decided to visit today. Once inside we were surprised to find at least 15 tables - although not many spare ones. The staff were attentive and service was good. We chose cheeseburger with chips and salad, and a... More

We stopped for a bit of lunch. They were very busy but provided us with a nice table after a short wait.. They were very helpful and accommodating, we had a pram to maneuver in limited space.. The food came quickly and was very nice.. I recommend a visit to this restaurant..

So whilst in Llangollen for the Steam, Steel & Stars weekend [13th, 14th & 15th March] myself and friends had our main evening meals.
