Everything was well cooked & presented. With a good selection of drinks. Staff seemed friendly & attentive. We were the only ones on when we arrived but it filled up nicely before... More

We were in North Wales house hunting about 5 years ago. We stopped in Conwy and found this restaurant and loved it. It was my husband's birthday yesterday and decided to re-visit for lunch. We were not disappointed. The food was delicious, the service good and friendly and the bill very reasonable. This Bistro is fabulous, but don't tell anyone... More

Have had several meals at Watsons and recommended to numerous people who have also thoroughly enjoyed their meals. Food is excellent, there is an early bird option for evening meals which is great value. Beautifully cooked, well presented and good service.

We chose Watson's Bistro having looked at reviews on Tripadvisor and we weren't disappointed. A very warm welcome was extended when we arrived and the service was friendly and attentive. So many tempting things on the Sunday lunch menu, but in the end I settled on the chicken liver and orange pate with spiced apple chutney and the slow roast... More

We booked a table for Saturday night for two. The food was OK, but I didn't really enjoy it because the service was so rushed (a previous complaint of slow service did make me smile) - the seemed very keen to get rid of us ASAP. Our table was booked for 7.30pm, the starter was served before I had eaten... More

Nice little gem of a restaurant hidden away. Great menu and specials, and very friendly service. The price was just right as well! Loved the blood orange sticky toffee pudding.

This was a Friday evening treat with a friend and all was perfect. Friendly staff quickly seated us, asking to store our coats for us. The fish cakes as starters from the specials menu were tasty and accompanied with just the right amount of home made tartare sauce. The crayfish risotto went down a treat. The mains of a steak...

It was a birthday occassion, the Bistro is small but very cosy. Its also very popular, however I was left feeling a little kind of 'palate confused' - Great welcome and service is faultless, however - the food, in my opinion was a little too 'fussy'. My starter was smoked salmon, and vert tasty, however the little bits around the... More
