We had dinner here on our first night staying near Dolgellau. The tapas was beautiful, we had about 6 or 7 dishes between us and it was more than enough. The lad who served us was very helpful, friendly and very attentive. Would definitely return...if we were in the area.More

Wow... stumbled upon this wonderful place whilst walking around Dolgellau. Stopped to look at the menu and saw that they did a Sunday carvery. Watched the chef fill the trays with the freshly cooked vegetables. Thought we'd give it a go without regrets. Food was...cooked to perfection, which included a choice of 5 meats. The chef/owner came to ask if everything was OK and he stayed for a chat. He was very friendly as was the barmaid.... Definitely recommend this place for Sunday lunchMore

Been to this restaurant last few years in summer staff always lovely and welcoming. Went in today and was greeted by a new staff member who came across extremely rude and arrogant which seems as if he did not want to be working there. Was...not welcoming at all. Food was not as good as last year was very basic. This was a big shame!More

What a fab Sunday lunch. The carvery was first class. The meats were fab. But, to me, the best was the choice of fresh vegetables. I mean fresh too! Everything was fresh and tasty. Constantly being topped up to ensure each sitting was as fresh...as the last. Loved every mouthful. Well done to restaurant.More

Welcoming restaurant in the heart of Dolgellau. Easy parking nearby. Arrived early to make sure we could get a table. Very friendly efficient service from the waiter who was very knowledgeable about the menu. Food arrived in good time, hot and tasty. Would thoroughly recommend...this place if in the area. Make sure you leave room for the cheesecake.More

We went here as a group as a Birthday celebration and to see if it was just as good as when we visited over 4 years ago and we were not disappointed .We were warmly greeted on arrival and the excellent customer service continued throughout.We...ordered a range of different tapas dishes which were all very well prepared,flavoursome and very tasty.In addition two of our party ordered the Squid Ink Paella which also didn’t disappoint.I would say that this restaurant’s Tapas could rival any in Spain as the quality of the food is amazing and it’s very well priced as well.A little bit of Spain in North Wales which was delightful!More

As good as the best in Valencia - amazing paella. Black ink is great and prawns to start with. Home made puddings - lemon tart with proper pastry base. Simply very good.

Once again, Bruno and his team served up a fabulous meal. This tapas restaurant never fails to deliver exceptionally good food. The range of flavours is first class as always and the staff are always pleasant and efficient. We don’t live locally, but during our...many short visits to Dolgellau we visit Tafarn y Gader as often as possible as a great meal is guaranteed. Thanks again and will see you all again next Spring.👍👍More

It's hard to put into words how much we enjoyed our visit here. Delicious olives, bread, beautifully cooked and incredibly tasty tapas dishes. And the desserts were some of the best I've had in a restaurant. Staff all lovely too. My only regret is that...I left it so long to visit. Cannot wait for next time.More
