Love this place, I'm from the area but moved away, always come here for a visit when I am home. Beautiful, fresh food with a great variety. But pricey for lunch but always worth it :)

We were a large family party of 9. All of us, young and old, had a stunning meal. Starters were a meal in themselves, main courses were fantastic and those who took a dessert were very complementary of them. The staff were very attentive and the owners made a point of coming over to every table to enquire if all... More

The specials included Lob Scows - (Chunky soup), Becws Melt ( Chicken, bacon and cheese on bruchetta), Goats cheese on bruchetta ( my favourite). Followed by scone and home made jam and clotted cream for me, crumble for the others. Judging... More

We came across this restaurant by accident and what a great meal we had. The food was obviously made using fresh produce, the staff where very attentive and polite. My only gripe is there was a lack of choices for children.

Great to find this place behind the park as the high street is not the most enticing of food destinations. Really good open prawn sandwich and the other specials looked good. Nice atmosphere, good value and great service. Would definitely return.

Lovely little place, great quality food and well priced. The owner was very hospitable and chatty. Good selection of food and the best coffee I've had in a long time! Recommended to friends and family and will be our 'go to place' when in Portmadog
