Very relaxed atmosphere although very busy, very efficient, friendly staff. Very good choice at breakfast either self service or waiter service. Dinner was excellent although a limited choice.

Great breakfast, delicious lunches, especially the club sandwich. Very attentive staff, many of whom have been there for decades. We'll be back next year.

Wide choice of food and the price for a 4 course meal is exceptional. The staff were very friendly and helpful and didn't have to wait long between each courses. Would eat here every night if I could, look forward to coming back and trying the menu again.

Fast becoming my favourite place to eat!! Set price (£23.50) for 5 courses is excellent value with great service. Friend asked what vegetarian options there were and got a separate menu with a good choice. Food is always excellent, coffee/tea in the lounge (self serve) is relaxed too. Would definitely recommend

Usually stay at the empire for a few nights each year but as I usually have my daughters with me I tend to eat out rather than use the restaurant. However, this time as we did not have my daughters we used the restaurant for our 3 night stay. The was enough choice for three nights as a couple of... More

We were pleased to be have eaten here because every one of our four courses was delicious. Formal dining rather let down by lack of dress code: a few individuals were admitted in scruffy t-shirts and shorts, out of keeping with the place. Coffee is taken in the lounge. The waiters and waitresses are very efficient. Eating in this lovely... More

Watkins Co restaurant in Llandudno is an equation that comes out right every time. Take an award-winning restaurant, set it in one of Llandudno���s top hotels, create an historic Victorian dining stuffed with formal elegance, add in an inventive chef with a dab hand at classic favourites and it���s elementary -- Watkins is a hit. Half the menu is seasonal, locally-sourced a la carte deliciousness, while the other half is a daily-changing table d���hote menu offering excellent value. People love the home-made lasagne and the daily roast, but we recommend the more inventive creations, too. Watkins Co���s service, impressive children���s menu and a pocket-friendly wine list get top marks.
