“Could be a little gold mine”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

..Because there's so little else to choose from. Great location, cool decor but i suggest the owners mystery shop their own establishment and see where the lack of customer service lets them down. We only got a smile when it was paying up time. Chocolate mints are a novel addition to breakfast & served along with the sugar in one the cups as well - why? Attention to detail.

“Great value but a bit slow”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013 via mobile

Lovely location on the mariner, was busy which was a good sign. Lots of vegetarian options, I went for the beetroot burger which was a little weird to be honest. The wedges were lovely and the welsh goats cheese with homemade red onion marmalade starter was absolutely delicious.
Service was disappointingly slow but waiter and waitress were polite and friendly.
If you go, get the goats cheese but not a burger!

5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Its a must! Recently sampled the tasty delights of selected variety of Mediterranean flavoured tapas, Breaded aubergines, Tempura prawns, Greek salad, freshly made garlic bread were to name a few.

Washed down with a fruity pimms - delicious, light and enjoyable

Worth a visit folks - savour the moment in the splendid surroundings of the Caernarfon Victoria Docs

Opportunity not to be missed for those hazy, lazy coming summer evenings

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 11, 2013

I had a lovely time with friends as we enjoyed a great selection of different tapas dishes and a few pitchers of mouth-watering Pimms! Delicious! I would recommend the venue for anybody looking for a delicious meal , a breath taking view of the Menai Straits and a nice atmosphere.
