We were staying a couple of nights in Rhyl and we went a run in the car to see a bit more of the area. We spent most of the day in Llandudno and Conwy and then we went on to Bangor intending to have dinner there, but Bangor did nothing for us and we spent less than an hour... More

The photos on this review so not do this place justice. A restaurant with a good atmosphere, great service and an excellent menu. We sampled the bream, Piri-piri chicken and a bespoke pizza. We would definitely recommend this venue to families, couples and groups alike.

Came here with friends last week for a meal before a night out. The food was excellent, meat cooked to perfection and the waiter couldn't do enough, highly recommended. Many Thanks to Pedz and his family. See you again soon. Phil x

Having never visited colwyn bay before we had no idea where to eat initially we wandered around for a while and couldn't find any eateries open. Just as we were about to give up we found virgilios and it proved a lucky find. We shared fish cake to start. Lovely light and crispy. We then both had pizza again crispy... More

Having not been to this restaurant for a few years, it was really great to go back to after hearing some wonderful reviews recently. They were not wrong. The restaurant and menu has kept the lovely qualities of a few years ago, but with a fresh shake up. The menu has a great range of Portuguese dishes that both myself... More

The food was great - the pizzas were delicious with lots of interesting toppings. The espetadas were fantastic - tasty, juicy meat which... More

We visited virgilios on oct 14. Food was lovely and well presented. The only thing we didnt like and the reason we havnt gone back is because after we had just finished our main course, the waiter came over to ask us how long we thought we may be as there was a couple waiting for a table!
