Our first impressions of this establishment weren't good. The entrance and stairs up to the restaurant are shabby and off-putting and we actually only decided to give it a try as there was nowhere else available.This is a pity, as the restaurant itself is perfectly fine, with great views over the estuary (depending on where you sit). On our first visit, they were very busy and we were told that there was a table but that it would only be available for an hour and a half or so as it had been reserved for later. This was fair enough as we were only looking to have a main course in any case. The waitress (owner?) was friendly and helpful, if a little stressed. However, to her credit, she took our order promptly and we received our food soon afterwards. We had gammon and sea bass and both meals met with our approval. There was a choice of 2 cask ales, which was good.
After trying unsuccessfully to get in a couple of nights later, we made a reservation for our last night. Again, the meals (Madras Curry and Cajun Chicken) were very good and we were even tempted to share a tasty rhubarb crumble. The service was friendly and efficient and the prices reasonable.
Would definitely go again if we return to Aberdovey. However, they really should do something about the entrance and stairs as it could put some people off. Having said that, the place was busy enough, so what do I know?!
