An “amazing location” overlooking the Menai Straits through its panoramic windows elevates a visit to this timber-clad café by the water – the original of a three-strong chain also taking in Criccieth and Llandudno. As ever, there was the odd gripe that the seafood (served alongside crowd-pleasers including pizza) might be “more interesting… it’s at the level of many a gastropub, but great seafood should be the usp in Anglesey”.

“Excellent views” of the Menai Straits through its large, floor-to-ceiling windows are a defining feature of this modern, timber-clad café by the water (which also has spin-offs in Criccieth and Llandudno). Seafood dishes are served alongside more everyday staples like pizza, but while some reports praise the overall quality of the offering, others are less certain: “is it because everywhere else on Anglesey (apart from Sosban) is so mediocre that we all love Dylan’s?”

A “beautiful setting” with “excellent views” of the Menai Straits is the backdrop to a meal at this “busy and reliable” wine-bar style operation: a “friendly” venue with “competent cooking” (burgers, pizzas, salads, plus more ambitious dishes). Also now with spin-offs in Criccieth, and, most recently, Llandudno.

For 31 years we've been curating reviews of the UK's most notable restaurant. In a typical year, diners submit over 50,000 reviews to create the most authoritative restaurant guide in the UK. Each year, the guide is re-written from scratch based on this survey (although for the 2021 edition, reviews are little changed from 2020 as no survey could run for that year).
