I loved the broth, and spicy burger and macaroni cheese, with an uber homely feel to it, the dessert was good with light pastry. Followed by good coffee and mint. £17.50 per person, will I go again yes definitely :-) a triumph of a food experience.

There's something unique about the dining experience with Oren. The food, made with the freshest of ingredients and supreme skill, without doubt plays the starring role. Gert is probably one of the best chefs I've encountered in Wales, he flavours his food with a deft, balanced hand. However, his ingenuity and creativity really shines through as he doesn't cook with... More

Oren is a pop up restaurant. Gert Vos puts on meals in different places and on different themes. If you get the opportunity to go to one, grab it with both hands! It is easily the most interesting and high quality restaurant around. I've been to a Korean meal in a disused room above a shop, a Roman meal in... More

Oren is now a popup restaurant held in differing locations. We had a fantastic easter taster menu on on top of a shop . Our meal was an interesting eclectic and perfectly matched mix of flavours. We met two other lovely couples. Gert is a talented chef who is passionate about food. Highly recommended!

If you are open minded and not fussy then go here! This isn't so much of a restaurant as a unique dining experience akin to going to a friends. Oren is situated in the old kitchen basement of a townhouse now b&b in the castle walls. It's accessed by French doors at front basement level into a room of 6... More

Don't underestimate this restaurant which is found in the basement floor of a b&b in Caernarfon. This secluded, low-key restaurant is not one to be missed not only for it's great food but for it's relaxed atmosphere and their unique dining experience.

We have been here many times to eat and it is our favourite place to eat in Caernarfon. When we have friends or family we will always take them to Oren as Gert is the perfect host and will always accommodate us if he can. His food is always refreshingly different. We can visit every week and we will not... More

I didn't know what to expect when our friends said we were going out to eat in the basement of a guest house in Caernarvon. Furthermore, there would be no choice of menu and we would be eating Thai food. Our friends advised that they have been before and eaten French food which was delicious. So off we went ,... More

My husband and I stayed in Caernarfon this weekend and following the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor, we booked a table at Oren. Booking was quick and simple through the website. The food and hospitality were top class. We wondered whether it would be strange having a meal in somebodies kitchen/dining room but Gert was such a wonderful host and... More

Me and my partner went to Oren for Valentine's, I know that a Indian based menu isn't the norm for a romantic dining experience, but I only have one word to describe our experience - WOW. The host was welcoming and we were served food that we had never heard of before, and were pleasantly surprised. The Soup for starters... More
