Featured Gwynedd Restaurants
1. Portmeirion Hotel British, Modern restaurant in Portmeirion
With its “lovely location”, the estuary-view dining room at the heart of Sir Clough Williams-Ellis’s whimsical Welsh tribute to Portofino has the “potential to be first rate”. Reports have been more middling in recent years however, and though no disasters are recorded, gripes include “distant” service and food that’s “trying too hard”.
2. Sosban And The Old Butchers restaurant in Menai Bridge 1 High St, Menai Bridge - LL59
“You don’t know what you are going to get” at this “small” but stylish venue in an old butcher’s, but the leap of faith is “well worth it” given the “really special” results: “every dish is perfectly prepared and follows on extremely well from the one before”. By all accounts “they have deserved their recently awarded Michelin star”.
3. Plas Bodegroes British, Modern restaurant in Pwllheli Nefyn Rd - LL53
2017 Review: Set in a “glorious” country location, this landmark restaurant-with-rooms boasts nearly three decades in business. Following a brief handover to other management in 2016, longtime owners Gunna and Chris Chown have resumed control of the property to ensure a continuation of the impeccable standards that have carved its reputation.
4. Venetia Italian restaurant in Abersoch Lon Sarn Beach - LL53
2014 Review: A good find in this popular seaside village – a “lively and modern” dining room inside a boutique-ified Victorian villa; chef Marco “knows his fish” and results can be outstanding.
5. Dylan's Restaurant Pizza restaurant in Menai Bridge St George's Road - LL59
“Captivating views of the Menai straits” help underpin the appeal of this “jolly” waterfront operation: a “wine bar-style” outfit, but with some “tasty” cooking – particularly fish and seafood – which “tastes fab even on a rainy day in north Wales”.
