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.

I don't know who tried to cook up a meal last night in the Watkins Restaurant but the effort was very poor. The meat was tough and overlooked and the arrangement on the plate was abismal, it looked as if it was thrown on, perhaps the result of being overwhelmed by all of a few people in the vicinity. Will not recommend or be revisiting.

I booked this restaurant based on other reviews I had read and we were not disappointed. The staff were excellent, very attentive and we were made to feel very welcome and relaxed. The food was excellent and there was a fantastic choice on the menu. I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone.

After our awful visit to Watkins last year we decided to go back to the poolside restaurant. As usual the food was very good, the atmosphere bubbling (several parties there that night) and the service efficient without being intrusive. The value for money is exceptional given that wine is included in the price for the 3 course meal (and its quite a pleasant fruity wine - not the usual paint stripper that usually accompanies set menus. I'll no doubt be back when we visit later in the year.

Recently had a reunion with 4 colleagues, we had a lovely table overlooking the pool, could not believe the value £17.95 for dinner - starter, main course, dessert, carafe of wine plus tea or coffee, the staff were pleasant with excellent service and the food very good for the price, you could not go wrong there was a good selection on the menu. Such a shame that I live 390+ miles away, will definately visit on the return to North Wales.
