    Sunday lunch. The beef was rather thick cut and tough. Three slices was way too much to chew through. The Yorkshire pudding was magnificent. Vegetables nice and crunchy. My dining partner had the turkey and cleared her plate so must have been good. Still I can't understand putting greenery on a roast dinner. And even less can I understand it on the dessert and the custard!!!!!!

    Food from the special board was delicious There was a singer as entertainment, who was quite crude for a restaurant setting and was far too loud, we could barely have a conversation Very disappointed that they had run out of Vodka (the drink I prefer) Staff were very attentive, couldn't fault them.

    A disappointing visit, we booked in as we’re staying in one of the lodges for my birthday. Starter came and was still frozen inside then couldn’t make a mojito as no mint. We thought we would play it safe and have a gammon but it was a lot of fat not really cooked well enough and frozen chips not really what you want to be paying £18 for. The lady that served us was exceptional and took the starter of the bill. All the makings of a great restaurant just not good enough. Explains why it was quiet on a Sat night!!

    This was the second time we used the restaurant during our stay at the resort and when there the first time noticed the fish and chips looked good so ordered that the second time. It came as I had seen this nice large piece of battered fish but….. where was the fish inside my batter?! I expected chunky white fish as the batter was about an inch thick but literally loads of air inside with a little piece of wet clearly frozen fish hiding in the depths of the batter! Very disappointing.

    Booked for Sunday lunch whilst staying at the Dylan Coastal Resort. Very disappointing, only one vegetarian option, which was a basic veg & pasta dish, massively overpriced. No alternatives available when asked, no children's menu. Booked for 4pm but seemed to be the end of service, waiting staff spending more time enjoying their own Sunday lunch. We were one of two tables eating and they managed to forget our desserts, so after 20 minutes we cancelled them and left Such a let down for an otherwise lovely resort

    Fantastic venue. Amazing views even in the pouring rain. With just a little extra effort I think I would give the restaurant. These are just little things but could make all the difference to the overall experience. My suggestions would be…bring the mint, horseradish & apple sauces to the table at the same time as the main meal. Don’t expect customers to have to ask for them and don’t run out of mint sauce on a Sunday lunchtime!!!! Train staff to wait to take away dishes until all members of a group have finished eating their meal. And a smaller spoon for desserts would be much better. Just little things but could make all the difference.

    Our cocktails were forgotten. Food quality was horrendous, and the price was crazy, £30 for a steak that came with no sides, was under cooked, charged extra for a cold peppercorn sauce, chips came out very late. The "grilled" chicken was boiled and unedable, that was approximately £24. My dog gets more chicken when I feed her. We where given two free glasses of wine as compensation. Worst meal ever. I feel robbed. AVOID

    Lovely restaurant. Unfortunately we had a very poor experience. Service was poor. Wrong meal served but accepted . Dessert was served by a member of staff in a coat who had clearly been on a cigarette break. Then we decided on coffee to be told coffee machine not working. Lastly the bill came and we were overcharged and had to sort the bill out. Shame as a beautiful place.

    Being Seasons members— and dined here before— I thought the “experienced” personnel were missing It’s always reassuring to have a “go to” person if things are not quite right but the age profile(albeit competent young people) didn’t fit what Seasons are “ selling” as a high profile location

    Breathtaking views. To dine on the veranda at MWH on a late summers evening, is a totally unforgettable experience. A modern restaurant, all the fixtures and fittings are of the highest quality. The staff were friendly and fun, Osian was particularly attentive. The food was excellent: contemporary and with enough options to challenge the taste buds. A great amount of thought and skill has gone into this menu, yet the pricing including the wine list was reasonable. MWH is a must if you are visiting this part of the Welsh coast. We are only here for 2 nights this time, we're booked to go back again tonight ....

    The meal was cold when served and we sent it back , however it appeared less meat on the plate when returned. This really spoilt the meal as our guests with us has nearly finished. No condiments offered at all by waiter and waitress, had to ask them . This definitely needs to be offered when serving the main course, no head waiting staff all kids working . Also vegetables served with no serving spoons.

    Meat platters to start were very tasty. I tried the halloumi shawarma which was very nice but not as good as the chicken option you used to do. My husband had the lamb burger which was fab & my son had the chicken burger which was very tasty. My cheese board was excellent with a great variety of cheeses (including goat which is my favourite). My husband & son had the crumble & chocolate tart, both very very good. Service from the young gentleman was very good. Only niggle was we weren’t offered any sauces & never got our jug of water which we asked for. Obviously I could have asked but the 2 young staff members seemed very busy. Lovey views & a good evening. Thank you

    Beautiful setting, but ther service was very very rushed. The main course was served the second the starters were cleared away. The fish was amazing, beautifully presented and fresh. The pizza however was just soft dough and the steak was very tough. So a little hit and miss on the food. I would like to try again at a lunch time, for something lighter as the location is absolutely stunning.
