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

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

My friend and I decided to have a 'smart lunch' as a treat before heading home after an overnight stay in Llandudno. We weren't disappointed as both the food and service were good.

We chose our meal whilst having a drink in the bar and was told that we could go through to restaurant when we were ready and our bottle of wine we chose would be at our table. Staff were friendly and the meal excellent value for money.

Inside the Empire hotel, great food and service. A really enjoyable meal and fine dining. Staff could not do more. Coffee afterwards in lounge with piano playing, lovely evening. Will go again and again when in Llandudno.

Description
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.
