“Excellent venue”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 15, 2013

Went for lunch here today. What a lovely restaurant. splendid views and very pleasant staff. We decided to have the mussels followed by the sea bass. We enjoyed both but would have liked a little break between courses. We shall make sure to ask next time. After a rest we tackled a sumptuous cheese board. The house white wine was excellent. We can't wait to go again and will definitely be recommending the restaurant to friends.

“Christmas Chaos”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 5, 2013

Visited with my family on the Friday in between Christmas and New Year. We were seated upstairs and it was immediatley apparent that they had not anticipated being busy. A lot of dissatisfied customers chasing the staff for some service which leant the meal an unfortunate atmosphere of antagonism. Staff remained pleasant under the circumastances but it was a case of pouncing on the serving staff to get orders away. Starter took over an hour to arrive. Getting a second drink felt like a significan achievment. Food was pretty good when it arrived and the setting and views are excellent although I would be reluctant to return during typically busy periods. We did tell the waiter when we left that we had not been entirely happy. He said he would pass on our comments but we were not offered anything by way of an apology!

“Great food & stunning location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

I've been meaning to go to Angelesey for some time & thought it would be good to tie in with taking the family to Dylan's ~ after it was recommended to me by friends. What a stunning location for a restaurant! Wow! It reminded me of Pizza Express in Falmouth, Cornwall. Lovely staff & great food! What more could we want? The kids loved their pizzas & I opted for a more exotic version of a ploughman's lunch ~ delicious! We'll be back :-)

“Average food, poor service!”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Me and my girlfriend went for a meal on NYE to Dylan's. Although very busy, it was also very noisy which is a lot to do with the laminated flooring I believe. The food was avarage to say the least, the burger was a bit dry and we had to wait 10 munites for the ketchup and mayo to arrive and when it came it was thrown on the table with no apologies!! I question if some of the staff has been properly trained to work in a restaurant and could handle a full house restaurant. Also no salt o'r peper on the tables?? Why? The seabass (fish) was dissapointing to say the least - thinner than a shoe's insole and not worth £13! This was very dissapointing to think that we were near the Menai Straight! No one came round to ask if the food was ok either which was also dissapointing.
We will NOT be returning to Dylan's in the near future.

“two lunches and New Years Eve meal”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

Whilst in Anglesey for 10 days took the opportunity to have lunch twice in Dylan's with two lots of friends. The Lobscouse was excellent and well received by all. I had my usual pizzas and couldn't fault the Tatws or the Butternut Squash. The restuarant was busy on all 3 trips, particularly New Years Eve, this didn't make a difference to the service which was excellent at all times.
