We visited this restaurant on Saturday 18th March. It certainly looks like a lovely restaurant. The service we received was good although the young male and female waiters looked very busy probably could of done with an extra pair of hands. We ordered a pizza each for main. When the pizzas come out I was instantly disappointed, no authentic Italian... More

What a lovely find! Pizza amazing and fast service at good prices. Stay are lovely and friendly. I would recommend they need more staff on a Saturday night and that three isn't enough. Would go again

Great Italian restaurant in the heart of Bala. Garlic Mushrooms starter are rich and tasty with dough balls to dip, the lasagna whether meat or veg was delicious and all in good sized portions. Excellent pizza what ever the topping. Wine list reasonable and towards the top end for prices. Virtually empty early in the evening but always busy towards... More

Hot and tasty food. We enjoyed our lasagna. Home made and good service. I asked for chilli sauce and they made some for me. It was delicious and was thrilled they went to so much trouble. It's not a typical Italian this is good honest food and not pretentious.

I went to a recruitment day we we're running at Y Cwrt. We were looked after with tea, coffee and biscuits and had a lovely lunch of pizza, salad and dough balls. I live in South Wales and left behind a note book. I called the owner and explained how important the book was to me. He rushed to the... More

We visited here whilst holidaying in Bala. We had passed numerous times and it looked fabulous. We went to eat there on the Wednesday evening and when we got there it was closed. My wife went into the take away next door and they informed us that they now only open thur to sun. So we went on our heels... More

First and Last time, I will pay good money at this restaurant\cafe or whatever it was, for sub standard pub grub. On the outside it looks like a classy restaurant the illusion is shattered almost immediately. Although it was 6.30 pm, Staff children\toddlers on the floor. The menu is a A4 piece of paper, my copy look like it had... More

Sometimes it's best not to trust the first answer you're given. A busy Saturday in Bala in early October - yes, it can be, especially when you turn up without booking and Elvis is in town. Or, rather, the cinema. So, after our group of six was turned away, we walked up and down looking for an alternative. The only... More

We recently visited this restaurant in Bala whilst we staying in the area. As soon as we went inside we immediately liked it. The decor was modern and the staff were friendly and helpful making us feel very at home. The menu was extensive and we both found something we really liked. The background music was good but not too... More

Having read some of the reviews, Y Cwrt is obviously not for everyone, but if you enjoy genuine people, good food and have a sense of fun, you would have to go a long way to better this restaurant. I took my parents (both in their 70's) to Bala for a long weekend to revisit some of their haunts from... More
