We had lunch here and were interested to hear that new owners had taken over two weeks ago. My wife ordered the thai squid salad and I had the lamb skewers with beetroot salad. The quality was great, however, five smallish pieces of calamari with a small salad of onion, grated carrot and rocket and four very small lamb meatballs... More

Had an early supper before our visit to the penguin parade. Fish and chips excellent - crispy batter, fish as fresh as could be. Great risotto from the specials menu. Nice buzzy atmosphere - mixture of regulars and tourists - and friendly staff.

We came for an early dinner with 4 adults and 4 kids. Menu was limited and not particularly inspiring. Meals came out haphazardly and there was probably 10 minutes between when the first and last person's dish arrived. Most of the adults' dishes turned up 5 minutes before the kids meals which wasn't ideal. A side salad didn't turn up... More

We visited The Foreshore at Rhyll when new owners took over after not being able to go for the past 3 years. Owners and staff very friendly and efficient, nothing too much trouble. The food was delicious from the entree of oysters kilpatrick, the main of porterhouse with mushroom sauce and veggies and meringues with lemon mascarpone. Everything great and... More

Went back to The Foreshore after 3 years last night after new owners taking over the ownership. We had an awesome night and the owners and staff were fantastic and the food was outstanding unlike the last time we were there when the previous owners were there.

We had a dinner here recently and were somewhat disappointed. The entree of scallops just had no taste. They were served in their shell on a shredded cucumber. The dressing was lacking and could have been so much nicer. Staff are friendly and service is good, but for the price we expected more.

I brought my partner here for his 45th birthday, overall we had a satisfactory experience. The pre-booked table was near the wall away from other diners so it was nice and quiet, we also had views across the road to the water. There were a couple of waitresses that attended to us, both friendly enough. When ordering I let them... More

Excellent view and looks newly renovated. Chairs inside look extremely uncomfortable but I found mine fine. One person in our party found the chair painful so was supplied with a cushion. Service was good. Batter on fish very heavy- I had to pull most of it off. Rest of my meal delicious. In hindsight I wish I had the salmon... More

What a great experience today. My son had the fish and chips and his fish was divine - the batter was to die for. He ate every scrap on his plate. My husband ordered the mussels which he loved and I ordered the seafood risotto which was absolutely fantastic. The seafood was cooked perfectly with the prawns being an absolute... More
