                                                      6 of us dinned. I had high expectations for this restaurant however we were disappointed. Firstly the entrance was uninviting and confusing. The restaurant was very noisy and the decor had seen better days. The starters were ok however my squid had more batter than squid. The mains were very disappointing I had the rib eye but it was a very poor quality steak lots of sinew it came with some wilted kale on top which was over seasoned along with over seasoned fries. I asked for a side salad of baby gem and spring onions which came fresh unfortunately the dressing was over seasoned. The other mains were nothing to write home about everyone felt the same. No one was drinking so we ordered mock tails which were very underwhelming my No Bellini was warm and my sons nojito was bland he said it tasted like water and sugar couldn’t taste the lime at all. Desserts were ok probably the best part of the meal I enjoyed the Baked Alaska everyone seemed to enjoy their dessert. The service wasn’t great it was slow. The young waiter who brought out the steaks introduced mine as raw instead of rare, no one asked if we enjoyed our meal until they collected our plates. Apart from our first round of mock tails we weren’t asked if we would like more drinks we waited a while for the bill. Not the greatest experience mediocre at best. I wouldn’t visit again the saving grace was that it was fairly reasonably priced.

                                                      We have been several times before and it had always been good and we ate there almost every time we were in the resort - indeed we were loyal customers. However this time they really did get a lot wrong. We’d booked lunch online a week earlier and requested a window table but were not given one so assumed they were already taken, however by the end of our meal two had not been used. I asked what the seasonal veg was but the waitress didn’t know - that’s about as basic a question as you can ask! So I suggested she go and find out. On return the answer was courgettes - these would be UK seasonal in July not May - in this country that is - everything is seasonal if it comes from far enough away. Seasonal in May are the likes of asparagus, spinach and new potatoes. The “little gem” side salad comprised large floppy leaves and not the crisp ones of little gem. If it was little gem then it was the outer leaves that normally get thrown away - but I suspect it was a completely different type. We have always had and enjoyed the dessert there on previous visits, but this time there was nothing inspiring and it made us think that the dessert menu had been designed for less skilled chefs to prepare. So we passed on dessert. Finally the decaf coffee was incredibly weak and barely tasted of coffee at all. We’ve drunk decaf for years and know that a properly made decaf tastes the same as a full hit coffee - it is de-caffeinated and not de-flavoured or de-strengthened. It was sent back and we decided to have dessert and coffee in an ice cream parlour in Llandudno - who had no problem with brewing their coffee. The restaurant certainly seemed to have lost the plot and perhaps we’re not the only ones who think this because the place, which has always been full on previous visits, had a lot of empty tables. Whilst each of these is minor, together they are not and as a result we did not enjoy our meal there. Sadly we now find an alternative place to eat on our visits to Colwyn Bay.

                                                      Lovely fish restaurant right by the beach. Great for lunch and walk on the beach

                                                      The sun was shining on this particular day as we were seated at a window table overlooking the fabulous sandy beach, the cares of the day just disappeared. Attentive service from professional staff but not intrusive, excellent food of very high quality at a reasonable price. Well worth a visit, we will be back!

                                                      Unfortunately the experience did not live up to the name on the door. Having eaten at Odette's in the past, and been keen to try Porth Eirias for some time, it was quite disappointing. The food was distinctly average and the service felt quite rushed. We will not hurry back, sorry.

                                                      Smoked haddock dish and veg beautiful and would definitely order this dish again. Catch of the day fishfingers were very dry and only small number of chips although crushed peas were lovely but overall this dish was disappointing and not good value for money. I would dine at Bryn Williams again as we had stunning food when we visited before Covid so maybe we were unlucky this time.

                                                      Booked a lunch table well in advance and we were thrilled to be seated by the window facing out to the sand and sea. Comfortable, welcoming, thoughtfully looked after by the staff. Sadly I'd had a tricky journey and had become ill, but I wasn't made to feel a nuisance at all. My sister, who had been looking forward to this treat so much, really enjoyed her meal of delicious bread with oil and butter, Sea Bream beautifully fresh and tasty with perfectly cooked vegetables and finished off with the yummy chocolate bread and butter pudding. Already planning a return trip, since I missed out!!!

                                                      Arrived to celebrate an important birthday and asked if we could move to a table for 4 that had been set for 2 people by the window. Asked if it had been booked specifically and was no it hadn’t but no we couldn’t move. I asked how we could book a table window for the future only to be told you can’t. When I queried this I was told that ranked were booked weeks in advance…as mine had been. There was no rationale to the above! If you can’t book a window table then move us! If you can then tell me how. Rude waitresses spoil the amazing food.

                                                      Charming, helpful staff who never stopped. Food the usual high quality. Muscles especially good. Who knew rice pud could be cordon blue ? A great evening in a great location overlooking the bay.
