Seafood
This big open space with its easy, informal mood has an open kitchen where Bryn’s team of chefs turn simple, local, seasonal ingredients into extraordinary bistro-style food. Menus are served all day by interesting people who really understand food, and there are no rules, so you can do what you like: tuck into breakfast, graze over small plates at the bar, share a Sunday feast with family, watch the sun go down with friends. Good times with good people, and no distance between you and the beach.

Overall good experience slightly irritating issue regarding where we sat when window seats seemed available also regarding sanitisation concerned how well the area was sanitised when there was grains of sand on the seat where I was seated one toilet for the whole restaurant?

Really nice space overlooking the sea... a modern building but beautifully presented. Staff were extremely friendly and, generally, efficient - we were there towards the end of a service and it became harder to get their attention as time went on - on the other hand, we were not rushed at all!

Food was excellent - for main course, we both had the "days catch fish fingers" which was delicious! I thought it was very good value for great food and service!

Booked a table, given option to sit outside, as the weather was lovely we did. Service was speedy and polite. Tables a bit grubby and seats were shabby, weeds and mould in flags and not the same standard as inside which was disappointing as paying for the same experience. Ordered full breakfast with toast. Food enjoyable but clearly pre prepared as breakfast served to table very quickly. Bacon and black pudding a tad on the dry side but not disastrously so. Overall would return but would eat inside.

Always enjoy visiting Porth Eirias for a coffee in the morning. Plenty of space due to lockdown regulations and staff friendly and attentive as always. Enjoyed their bacon and brioche roll and hot coffee. They are not participating in the “Eat out to Help Out” scheme.

Have been lots of times before. This time the menu choice has changed and was disappointing. No porridge and very limited options for vegetarians. Shame really however the food we did have was good it was dissapointing that the choices were so limited this time. Surprised it was not part of the eat out to help out scheme in August too. Feel business could be lost as a result.

Food was excellent quality and all our dishes were delicious. Especially enjoyed the peas and the pickled radishes, which was a pleasant unexpected surprise, I'm not usually a radish fan. Service was friendly and professional. Ambiance was badly affected by coronavirus, obviously beyond anyone's control, with only 8 customers in the restaurant. Hopefully we will be coming back again once things are back to normal.

Roughly our fifth visit in the past 3 or 4 years.

Stunning location, food and charming professional service.
We had mussels, soup, prawns and soda bread to start, haddock, fish fingers and mussels again for mains, baked Alaska, Creme brûlée and a chocolate orange mousse to finish.
All superb.

A bottle of wine, loads of bottle of sparkling water and 3 coffees.
£100 per couple including tip.

Highly highly recommend it. We’ll be back!

We visited on Saturday evening for a family birthday celebration.

The location and interior were striking, providing lovely views of the coast and sea.

The welcome was warm and efficient. Whilst the majority of the staff were friendly and efficient, our main waitress was rather cold, we did not get all of the nibbles and sides that we ordered, and our mains were called away, cooked and on the pass whilst we were still eating our starters. This meant that some of the starter dishes and cutlery were not cleared before the mains arrived.

The food was delicious, although my starter of mussels included about 1/4 that had not opened and could not be opened. The celeriac veloute, mains of salmon and fish fingers, and desserts of cheeseboard and pavlova were excellent.

I acknowledge that this review is possibly slightly picky, but with the name attached to the restaurant I had expected more on the service front.

We have been to Bryn Williams 3 times now. The food is always good and it's nice to see the chefs preparing your meal through the open serving hatch. Always interesting items on the menu to choose from. The staff are friendly and helpful.

Outstanding service and fantastic food. We visited the Bistro on a Saturday lunchtime (22nf Feb 20), the staff were welcoming showed us to our table overlooking the beach and delivered the most wonderful meal (the fish pie was to die for). We will most definitely be back.

The food was exquisite. Both myself and my partner enjoyed all 3 courses and cleared our plates. Really good food choices available on the menu, including vegetarian options. The restaurant would not look out of place if in the heart of Manchester. I would definately recommend and will return to sample more of the delicious menu.
