Description: Watkins Co restaurant in Llandudno is an equation that comes out right every time. Take an award-winning restaurant, set it in one of Llandudno���s top hotels, create an historic Victorian dining stuffed with formal elegance, add in an inventive chef with a dab hand at classic favourites and it���s elementary -- Watkins is a hit. Half the menu is seasonal, locally-sourced a la carte deliciousness, while the other half is a daily-changing table d���hote menu offering excellent value. People love the home-made lasagne and the daily roast, but we recommend the more inventive creations, too. Watkins Co���s service, impressive children���s menu and a pocket-friendly wine list get top marks.

We stayed at Osborne house, a sister hotel and we dined here on the first Saturday evening
The restaurant was very busy but the maitre still managed to make us feel special
The food was excellent as was the service
The room is stunning land we will dine there again before returning to devon

“putrid”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 9, 2012

went here for lunch yesterday, disgusting greasy slop. We were one of 2 couples complaining. The starter and main course were all greasy, the chips were similar to the ones left at the bottom of a deep fat fryer and re-cooked over and over. The pate was so thin it was see through. The deep fried brie was that full of grease it was all over the plate.
We have eaten here of an evening and the food is pretty good, lunch was a disgrace

“...another great meal at the Empire”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

We dined at the Empire on a Saturday evening in the "Poolside Restaurant" and as usual it was great value - good service and food was every bit as good as last time. You do need to reserve a table as they do get busy but well worth the £16 for a 3 course meal with wine and coffee included.
