We arrived on Saturday night, Not too busy. Four of us for dinner, Food was ok but nothing special and overpriced for what you got. The service was terrible. We finished our main meal and waited and waited for the waitress. The couple on the next table somehow managed to attract the attention of the waitress, she cleared their plates... More

We found this place after patrolling the full length of the main street comparing posted menus. The welcome could not have been better and the food is excellent. We selected from the "Evening Specials" board and returned two more evenings. In all we had six different meals over the three visits and would have no hesitation of going again should... More

My family and I went here for dinner last night and boy what an awful experience. Very unfriendly service as others have said. The table hadn't been cleaned from the previous occupier. We were told immediately that there would be a long wait although there were only 5 other occupied tables and they were mainly eating. The food was horrendous... More

No pancakes ! all the batter had been used and although early evening and other customer orders were also being refused felt a second class customer who had just eaten a main meal without the reward of a sweet (ps the board was still up when we left)

We enjoyed two evening meals at this restaurant whilst staying locally on holiday. The staff were very friendly and helpful and accommodated our strange tastes by swapping elements of their meals for us. We enjoyed what we ate and thought it was good value for money.

The grapevine bistro is such a cute a cosy restaurant in which I recommend to anyone visiting Porthmadog. Stumbled across this gem on a Saturday evening and were seated without having to book in advance. I found that it actually has a wider range of food on the menu inside than on the window, offering special deals and meals of... More

My family and I stumbled upon this restaurant by chance after scouting High Street in Porthmadog the previous day for a restaurant and finding just a few. This restaurant is small and the decor is a bit dated but it has a certain je-ne-sais-quois, making it a charming little place to dine in. The old lady who assisted us was... More

'Family lunch' From when we walked in it was just uninviting. No one came to ask us would we like a table we just stood at the door until a really nice lady with her child finished unnecessarily just so we could sit. We sat at a dirty table for 10 mins b4 someone cleaned the table. We were told... More
