Nino's is a long established pizzeria and cafe on the promenade in the tourist resort/retirement village that is Rhos-on-Sea. It's one of those places that's bigger than it looks from the outside as it's narrow but goes back quite a way. If you're lucky enough to grab a table close to the window, or weather permitting one of the tables outside on the pavement, you'll get very pleasant views of the harbour just over the road. You will need a bit of luck there though because it often get busy. On my last visit on a Tuesday in the middle of January, so well away from the tourist season, there was barely a table free at lunchtime.
It has to be said though it is a bit pricey. The thing that stands out for the me is the price of the baked potatoes. The only way you can get one for less than eight quid is to order one without any filling. Add any sort of filling and you'll need to fork out north of eight quid for your spud. I can't imagine I could ever bring myself to pay that much for one potato, at least not unless it was plated in gold and served on a silver tray by Keira Knightley (which I don't think is the case in Nino's).
There are a couple of mitigating factors though. Firstly every eatery in Rhos seems to be a bit pricey, at least compared to Colwyn Bay which is where I usually eat. A meal in Colwyn Bay would probably cost half as a much as a meal in Rhos so if you want cheaper grub you'll need to head off to the Bay. Secondly the food in Nino's is very good, plenty of home cooked food made from quality ingredients. It may be expensive but at least it lives up to expectations.
All in all this isn't somewhere I could afford to eat at too often but it's a worthy place if you fancy giving yourself an occasional treat.
