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

We went to the restaurant early on a Friday evening with our children. The menu was odd. Each dish we ate was overly sweet - too many sweet sticky sauces on both the starters and main courses as if the chef has a very sweet tooth. The service was also very slow. It took half an hour to get the... More

We have visited Conwy for short holidays on quite a few occasions but only discovered Watsons Bistro on our trip last weekend. The restaurant is within the town walls and tucked away off Chapel Street. Its not a big restaurant so booking is strongly advised. The food and service are excellent at a good price. There is also a very... More

Happened upon this place on a wander around Conwy. According to my son, the roast beef is the best ever!

Personally I think this is one of the nicest places to eat in North Wales, and we make a point of visiting regularly. Lovely local produce (including local brewers), hearty and delicious food, and a cosy, relaxed atmosphere with charming staff. Nb: Booking is a wise idea if you're going for an evening meal. It's a small space and the... More

We had a lovely time here. We were initially seated in the main area where a large group was being a little raucous. When a table became available in a quieter area we were asked if we wanted to move seats even though we had not requested it. That was a really nice touch and was really appreciated. The food...
