First off, what amazing value for money. £25.00 per person for four courses! Each of the courses were cooked to a very high standard, and the portions were just right, not too big as to make you too full for the next course. The staff...More

Took a chance on this hotel for an evening meal, when others on the "front" appeared to charge over the odds for their fare! We had a 4 course meal with choice of each course and could not fault it. The wine was also reasonably...More

  • This restaurant is at Empire Hotel Llandudno
Watkins Co restaurant in Llandudno is an equation that comes out right every time. Take an award-winning restaurant, set it in one of Llandudno���s top hotels, create an historic Victorian dining stuffed with formal elegance, add in an inventive chef with a dab hand at classic favourites and it���s elementary -- Watkins is a hit. Half the menu is seasonal, locally-sourced a la carte deliciousness, while the other half is a daily-changing table d���hote menu offering excellent value. People love the home-made lasagne and the daily roast, but we recommend the more inventive creations, too. Watkins Co���s service, impressive children���s menu and a pocket-friendly wine list get top marks.
