Description: Osborne’s Café and Grill in Llandudno -- could there be a more romantic restaurant anywhere? Set in the Grade II listed Osborne House Hotel right on the promenade, Osborne’s is a modern tribute to high Victorian style. Softly candlelit and decorated with opulent drapery, period fireplace, gleaming chandeliers, gilt mirrors, antiques, paintings and fluted columns, the dining room still manages to be relaxed and informal. Perfect for light bites or full meals, the menu uses local produce to create inventive, seasonally-changing modern European dishes. Everyone loves the Conwy Valley lamb shank with ratatouille and basil when it’s on the menu and the Osborne’s rendering of fish and chips.

“Meal with the girls”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 8, 2013

I went with friends last Friday hoping for the usual lovely meal and although the starter was nice, the main course was not. The sprouts that accompanied the chicken looked and tasted as if they had been cooked 2days previously, then put in the fridge and warmed up for our meal. They were tough, chewy with outer layers left on which were discoloured and chopped in half as if to make a little go a long way! Not the usual standard Osbourne House!! Come on get your act together, on the plus side the service was as good as ever and the ice cream was delicious.

“Shame about the main courses”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 25, 2013

Visited Osborne House for a pre theatre dinner in a party of 4. We had 2 scallops and 2 mussels for starters which were terrific. We then ordered 2 portions of beef stroganoff to be told that it was not available. It seems strange that such a staple is not available at 5.30 on a Saturday night. We ordered a lamb shank and a rib eye steak. Both came tough tasteless and under seasoned. To be fair our wives fish was said to be good. We complained about the meat dishes when we got the bill and got no comment or apology.

The restaurant has an amazing atmosphere due to the decor and furnishings - just a great pity that the meat dishes for £15 -£20 don't match up.

“Very average pub food in opulent surroundings”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 16, 2013

This restaurant/hotel has beautiful surroundings and the service is generally very good. Sadly the food didn't match the same standard. We ordered the steak which was very chewy and the garlic sauce was a blob of frozen butter placed on top. Generally it was pub standard which I would have expected to find at a lower cost. Overall I would rate the service and ambiance 4 stars and the food 2.
