    Very good food, interesting menu, the chef has some great ideas, much better than the usual crowd pleasers that you get in other bistros.

    Loved this restaurant so much it was a jewel of a place! I would say it is the best meal out we have had for ages - the food, ambience and friendly staff made it such an enjoyable evening. Our compliments to the young enthusiastic chef who clearly cooks and creates with a passion. We will definitely be back next time we visit Conwy, in fact it's a good excuse to come back!

    On holiday in N Wales and always looking for a good dine out. Watson's was recommended and it exceeded our expectations - based on our other experiences, all very average, earlier during the week. Excellent food, well presented and a discreet and excellent service. Will definitely book again when we return next year. Don't lose your chef!

    Visited for a special dinner while on vacation in Conwy from the US. The ambience was upscale bistro and service was very good. The food was delicious and I particularly enjoyed the desert special, which was Sticky Toffee Pudding. It was my first ever, and set the bar very high. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

    Food is exceptional here. Had the best meal in ages. The only criticism I would have is that the surroundings don't match the standard of the food! Although absolutely fine, the ambience and overall experience could benefit from an update to the decor and maybe the furniture to give a more modern feel.

    Didn’t feel welcome, the table at the back in corner for two no too big. Our biggest concern was bits food had been left on our table from previous meal when asked for it to be cleared no apology almost when wiping down it was an inconvenience that set the tone for rest of evening. Although the food was good but everything else was a let down.

    Great little find with friendly staff, food was excellent and I would have given full marks if portion sizes on the starters had been a little more generous. Would have given full marks on ambience too if it wasn’t for the jumping CD player and their choice of music while dining. If not for these two things I’d have given five stars on everything. Saying that though the place was enjoyable and warm and we were well attended with good quality well prepared food by an obviously experienced team. Would go again if I’m the area.

    The Bistro has a very nice ambience. Every table is well spaced out. The service was excellent and very friendly. The waiters were very friendly and knowledeable about the menu. Finally and best of all, the food is of excellent quality and beautifully presented. We both thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Watson's Bistro and wish it was closer to where we live.

    Creative cooking, erring sometimes, on the side of too many competing flavours on one plate. Mostly, however, very tasty and beautifully presented. Shortish wine list, offering good value for money. Lovely, friendly service.

    Unfortunately our visit did not meet our expectation after reading a number of very good reviews online. I had checked the set menu online and there was many items which appealed to us and the price was reasonable 17.95 2 course and 21.95 for 3 course dinner. On arrival the menu had changed and not as good as the one online we were struggling for choice also the price had increased by £4 per head. We were not happy with the meal and complained but they wouldn't offer a discount because they checked with us but we had only just started eating our meal it was part way through when we realised it wasn't such a good meal when we had no vegetables or sauce left the meal was dry and lacking flavour. Presentation was good but more vegetables and sauce is definately required with the main course. We didn't have dessert as we didn't want any further disappointment. We were dissappointed that no discount was offered to us.
