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.

“A little gem-pure elegance”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 12, 2014

Don't be misled by the "Café and Grill" title which implies a bit of sea front spit and sawdust. It's pure elegance and very good value for money. Several advantages - it's open for food all day so very convenient if you're going to and event at Venue Cymru or similar. Lovely squishy sofas to relax in and have a pre-prandial drink or a coffee afterwards if it hasn't been bagged by other diners. The log (effect) fire makes it very cosy - and the multitude of candles around the restaurant are all real. The menu is excellent with options for vegetarians (though why are portions smaller then the equivalents containing meat? - it's not just here but nearly everywhere!). Good choice of fine wines, no real ales. Excellent attentive service. Lovely spot for a valentine's dinner - went a couple of years ago....

“Fabulous evening”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 8, 2014

Wow what a place!! the lounge area was beautiful with huge roaring fires, elegant but relaxing bar area. The decor in the restaurant was lovely, lit with candles to give it a very pleasant ambience. Food was excellent, as was the service, prompt and friendly without being imposing.

The set menu is exceptional value for money, quite a plush place without being ostentatious, looking forward to returning at some point.

“Why go anywhere e;se”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 6, 2014

Love going to LLandudno,always have a walk along the front & call in at Osbornes for our lunch, lovely atmosphere & decor, lots of antiques, In the winter big log fires in the lounge , with comfortable leather settees to sink into. The restaurant has a great menu & we have not ever been disappointed. Can't wait to have a few nights in their luxury rooms upstairs which I have viewed Lovely location opposite the pier head, & great views down the promennade, round the corner from the main shopping st. Not forgetting the staff are most pleasant & helpful, it appears that lots of clientele come back again & again judging on how they are greeted like old friends by the staff

Me and my girlfriend visited this restaurant and pound for pound the nicest looking restaurant in the Llandudno area! Food is of high standard and the service is good too! You can't beat the 3course menu and it's reasonably cheap too! ***recommended***
