The staff here are VERY friendly and outgoing. We were able to be seated on a very busy night, next to the window. The food was of standard production (hence the rating) and the garlic roasts were heavily garlic - be warned. Great staff, average food and averaged priced.

Me and some friends were in Caernarfon and wanted some food, the Bistro looked quiet but the menu suited looked good. I had the duck, a friend had the venison, another friend wasn't hungry so had garlic bread. Really tasty food, great size portions, friendly service. Knocked off one point because it was cash only.

A friendly place to eat. Plenty of choice on the evening menu which is good value especially as you can take your own wine with no corkage to pay.

We went to Jakes in a party of eleven people on sat 3rd December. From the moment we arrived the hospitality and service was second to none. We all decided on the set three course meal which was very reasonably priced. There was a very good choice of options for each course to please everyone. From the starter to the... More

The food seems to get better with every visit. We had the set menu which is very good value....the lamb just fell off the bone, and my husband's beef just melted in the mouth. We tried to get in on the Saturday night but they were fully booked, but we were offered a table for the Friday and as it... More
