“Great food in a strangely relaxed setting”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2013

We visited Ebeneezer's for lunch on a day in Barmouth based on comments on this website and our appetite for things a little out of the ordinary. All four of us ordered Paninis, which were excellent, (not the usual wilted prepackaged type) which came with a substantial salad all at a very reasonable price. We thought it might be a little odd eating while other people browsed around us, but not at all. The atmosphere is very relaxed, no screaming kids and most chatter is at low volume, so this makes a welcome break from many of the food establishments in the area in August. If we did have one criticism, it's that they were a bit heavy handed with the salad dressing the day we visited. Our parents have since visited based on our recommendation and also loved it.

Have to agree with previous comments - great food - generous portions - and a lovely, chilled atmosphere. Great way to end our holiday in Wales.

“Sneeze and you'll miss it”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 16, 2013

Menu promises more than the kitchen delivers. Small portions and slow service. Coffee was disastrous. Odd but interesting setting but tables basic and seating a little cramped. With a bit more expertise,this could be good and may indeed have improved since our visit.

“Potential”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2013

As a Buddhist and vegetarian for 43 years, I felt this was unmissable. I went in with friends one very wet afternoon for some afternoon tea. I had a scone with jam and cream, which was disappointing. The scone wasn't at all tasty, and the cream was squirty cream!!! Plus, the jam was hardly enough to spread on the 2 halves of the scone. The decaff coffee was mediocre. I also was disappointed at the choice of veggie choices...I would have expected more from a Buddhist organisation, and I DO realise they have to make a profit. I am so sorry to put in a review like this! Loved the 'hippy' style shop.
