Food was delicious. We had lamb and cod main courses, the lamb melted in your mouth and the cod was wonderful. All the vegetable accompanying the meal again was superb. We shared a starter and a sweet, there was enough to enjoy. Sticky toffee pudding with ginger ice cream was lovely. Wine was not overpriced for a restaurant, others should take a leaf out of their book and price realistically. We think the only down side maybe was the annex was lacking atmosphere and the doors to the courtyard had a draught coming through, fortunately the restaurant was warm. Not sure how comfortable it will be if all the tables are occupied as it isn't very big. Will go again.

Excellent little Bistro tucked away in a quiet back street but well worth seeking out. The service was excellent, unintrusive but efficient and friendly. The food was excellent, from a shared Garlic King Prawns starter to our main courses of Lamb and Seabass. Well cooked and presented and very yummy.
We had a bottle of wine and rounded the meal off with an old school floater coffee, it was all superb.
Book in and enjoy, you won't be disappointed!

Great meal, the lamb was outstanding. We visited midweek in Feb so the retaurant was not packed but it was still very cosy and warm. One of our favourite restaurants and and a must when we visit Conwy.

Took our son there for a surprise birthday meal. We hadn’t been before but went based on some positive reviews. We were not disappointed, the choice of dishes was good, well presented and delicious. The staff were efficient, courteous and friendly.
The timing between courses was just right

Amazingly good food. No idea how they do such good quality food at the early bird price, and they threw in a free Prosecco each too.

You could pay twice the price elsewhere for this quality of food and restaurant. Definitely recommend Watson’s.

Visited Conwy many times and seen Watson's but never tried it .... After Saturday I am asking myself why. The nicest meal we have had for a very long time and we eat out regularly. I couldn't fault any of the meal the pate was outstanding and our mains where beautiful. I will be booking to go back on my birthday and cant wait. Staff polite and attentive. Real value for money.

As regular Conwy visitors we try to eat here each time we visit, never a disappointment, ever.
I feel I must mention the Scallop, Chrizo and apple starter in particular, I was blown away by the abundance of flavour in such a simple dish, my mouth is watering as I type! Truly memorable!
The team are friendly, knowledgeable and always helpful, the fooood (deserves too many ooo's) is always beautifully cooked and presented and tastes just how you imagine when selecting, often better as in the Scallop starter!
The first place we book after booking accommodation is Watsons, every time!
Good places to eat in the area are plentiful, really great one's less so, Watsons is a superb dining experience!

Well worth finding this restaurant, we booked for 7pm and was fortunate to be just in time for the early bird choice, both chose the lamb rump for main and it was one of the best pieces of lamb we have had in a long time, same goes for the other courses, 3 course and a bottle of wine for £60, absolutely excellent.

Enjoyed the night but steak was over cooked despite asking for medium rare and at £22 I expect it to be right. Dessert ice cream melted very quickly into a weird blob. Staff nice, place nice but not worth the money they charge.
