A restaurant with style, ( it was the old court houise)

Friendly staff , attractive building, good food, it all makes for a welcoming package, the menu is not enormous & that's a good thing, this hasn't got an encapsulated menu which to me indicates a coach party/ tourist menu . cash only? so what there is a hole in the wall (ATM) next door... read more

Stopped here on a Saturday evening on way to Barmouth. Lovely setting, food was excellent and served fairly quickly which with 3 children was a definite plus! Was but cold in the restaurant but fine once large food was closed. Definitely will be back again.

This restaurant in Bala was a great find. The pizzas are absoloutely delicious and very reasonably priced. They have a good selection on the menu, not just pizzas and the staff were very friendly. If you're in the area I would definitely recommend paying them a visit (although we found they were not open Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday evenings in... More

Came to Bala for the weekend a couple of weeks ago,. 5 members of my family and myself ventured into what is named as 'Y Cwrt', it was fast service, smiles all around, perfect meal, all cooked to perfection, however they do not accept card, which was alittle inconvenient and must have been hard and annoying for some customers.

The hotel we stayed at in Bala did not open it's restaurant on a Sunday evening so we ventured across the road to the Italian. There was only one other couple in at 7.30 pm. My husband ordered soup as a starter to be told ' there's no soup' not a good start. However the meal was very good and... More
