“Good food , lacking atmosphere.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

Went for dinner on a Friday evening having booked 2 weeks before. Disappointed to be seated in a corner in the main room where there were only two other tables dinning. The conservatory was full and looked to have a much better atmosphere.
The food was good but the evening was bait 'flat' due to the atmosphere. Staff need to smile more.

“Best restaurant in Conwy by a mile”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

After some mediocre experiences in Conwy dining at Watsons was a lovely surprise. Everything was perfect, smiley enthusiastic staff, excellent sophisticated menu and blackboard choice, and beautifully presented food cooked with flair. Superb fish and succulent lamb mains. Busy ambience even on a Monday night. Highly recommended! Well done to the chef and staff.

“a total delight for the pallet”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2014

Staff, cleanliness, service, some of the best food outside of London. The chef is obviously passionate about his produce and presentation. A total delight for the pallet......

As fish lovers, we both enjoyed our Fish themed meal. Presented and served excellently. Wine was good value too. Would definitely choose to eat there again.
