Bryn Williams at Porth Eirias
Fantastic food, service and location. Highly recommended
Stunning location, food good, waiting times long. Unfortunately the lack of staff training lets this beautiful restaurant down . They are not professional and do not care about you having a enjoyable time whilst there
Everything was excellent. Only one suggestion, could it be possible to have chunky chips as an option.
food is always pretty good, and was once again. The service was great, and we're hoping this team is here to stay, after some less impressive experiences earlier in the year. A lovely meal, much enjoyed - thank you.
It was my birthday and I was seated by a Christmas tree with a clear view of the coast.
The food was delicious and the staff were friendly and attentive.
Great meal, great spot, great service ! The mulled fizz was a revelation! We will be back!
Lovely place, lovely staff, lovely food.
Sea was rough and the weather windy and cold but it was awesome to sit by the windows and watch the storm in silence and warmth!
I had been in the restaurant 4 weeks ago and food was very good. Disappointed this time - the fish pie was very very bland and no seasoning. I have done better myself. My friend had too much lentils with the duck. Ordered side dish of veg but only carrots. Last time we had three types of veg. It is very important that a restaurant keeps the same standard.
The food was lovely and much more reasonably priced than I had expected. We loved the location and the industrial style decor. The staff were pleasant and attentive . . . until about 9.45, when it all started to go wrong.
By this time most of the tables were empty and the staff switched to clean-up mode, noisily cleaning and distributing cutlery, squirting cleaning products on tables and setting up tables all around us for the morning. You start to feel like they’re just waiting for you to leave! And the noise is really not conducive to a romantic meal.
On top of that, the staff were no longer looking around to see if the few remaining customers wanted anything. They were busy chatting to each other, restocking fridges or cleaning. It really annoys me that at the end of the meal it can be so hard to firstly get your bill and then pay it. It’s like you’re playing a game with the staff where you’re trying to catch their eye and they’re doing everything they can to avoid it!
This is really common in restaurants and I wish the staff were given more training in this area. It just ruined what was a good experience up to that point.
My wife had seen an advert for the restaurant and we thought we would try it
We were not disappointed!
Lovely setting and layout of restaurant. Can be a little noisy as its a little open with lots of glass for views but in general a lovely experience.
The food was superb and I have to say that the baked Alaska was the best dessert I've ever had!
Good value for money and food well cooked and presented. Downside for us is that we had 3+ different servers looking after us during the meal which resulted in drink orders failing to arrive and no 'how is you meal/is everything ok?' interactions.
Great food, great service
This was our first visit to Bryn Williams, and we will definitely be returning as it was excellent.
food was luke warm very small portions of french fry s only thing that enjoyed was sweet
Yet again another lovely meal with excellent service. Thank you
We were celebrating at Saturday lunchtime and had an excellent table by the window so we could watch the world go back. Great, attentive but relaxed service and everyone enjoyed their food very much. Next time we might share baked alaskas as they were huge!
First time visit to celebrate my husbands birthday and we were not disappointed! We were instantly impressed with the laid back friendly atmosphere, and we're shown to our seats, overlooking the bay and stunning scenery, beautiful, even on a wet & windy November afternoon. The menu is reasonably priced for the quality of food being served - we had the burger with homemade slaw and the plaice with mushrooms, leeks and capers.. Both excellent... But the desserts were the star of the show for us! The baked alaska is probably the best we've had at a restaurant in N. Wales!
The only slight negative was the amount of time we waited for our dessert, just under 30 minutes, but it was a Monday afternoon, not that busy, so lthere would be more staff on busier days. However, it won't put us off returning again. Very soon.......
Good service, but food wasn’t as nice as I remembered
Had a lovely meal here last Saturday . Food excellent.
Plenty of space between tables .
Left late to book and very fortunate to get a table as very busy lunchtime and a large party booked in for afternoon tea.
Service excellent as ever and food was outstanding, whether it’s lunch, afternoon tea or evening we’ve always received excellent service and food and will without doubt return when we’re next in the area.
Was good food, couldn’t complain apart from portion size...
bit of a strange setup as it’s part of the council building.
Excellent meal on Saturday. Soup was gorgeous and steak fantastic. Made me not care that the bread was, as usual, disappointing. Service attentive and professional. Menu seems to have improved.
Living in the area and because if the limited menu, it does restrict the number of visits to be made in a year due to the limited menu which doesn’t appear to change, even with the changing seasons.
One criticism from one of the party, who is a chef himself, was that he would expect home prepared and cooked chips from a prestigious establishment.
Lovely fresh food, nice decor, pleasant staff timely service & reasonable price for quality
Food was delicious, particularly the confit duck. Washed down with a smooth Sanguiovese. Service was excellent. Views over Colwyn Bay beach. Couldn't have asked for more. Highly recommended.
Terric in every sense, attentive service, great food well cooked and reasonably priced, nothing to criticise whatsoever. We will definitely go back.
Situated in a great position with lovely views over the beach. Welcoming staff and exceptional food. Visited previously and will visit again when we return to North Wales.
Took some friends as they had never been there, they were also impressed with food and staff, Thankyou
Everything was superb
Stunning location and wonderful food. We had the set menu which was unbelievable vale for the quality of the food - great experience and just very sorry that we do not live near enough for this to be our regular restaurant but so hope to visit again - thank you for a memorable meal!
Stunning location, great food and super friendly staff. Breakfast here is just perfect and the Baked Alaska is out of this world. So lucky to have this on my doorstep.
Bryn produces a variation on classic dishes. The plaice was expertly flavoured with shrimps and salad dressing. The Alaska was one of the best deserts I’ve ever had. A treat for any couple or family.
Excellent food. The Baked Alaska was out of this world!
This place is not fine dining, rubber squid, overdone ,hard to peel prawns, overdone..brioche bun dry inside, burgers were warm in middle and cold on edges and to top it off the fries were from the freezer!!!! More kitchen staff than dinners at the time so why can't they par boil potatoes and fry them up, overpriced, no warm welcome we definatly won't go back
Bloody gorgeous 👏👏👏thanks 😍 my 2nd visit & already recommended to many friends.
This was our 3rd visit to the restaurant since it opened. The first 2 times (more than 12 months ago) we received awful service but great food. On those occasions we didn't complain because it's not in our nature. This time it was opposite, the waitresses were great & handled the situation really well but the food was awful. We had fish pie for 2, the fish was tasteless & the mash was watery. The waitress replaced the fish pie with haddock for my wife & fish fingers for me, the haddock was raw & the fish fingers were overcooked & dry & we only ate the chips that came with the fish fingers. Again the situation was handled really well but we left hungry & disappointed on my wife's birthday.
I went with my husband and having read past reviews was a little hesitant but needn’t have worried! The food was tasty, of good quality and enjoyable, we would definitely recommend and we will be back
Lovely ambience and it is lovely to meet friends there as the tables are very private. Food is very good
Fabulous lunch at a lovely location with views across the bay and out to sea. The atmosphere is very relaxed and the decor is more industrial than intimate. Cooking is very good and the Baked Alaska was probably the best I have ever had. We’ll be looking for an excuse to go back!
Great location, good views, close to the train station. Good food and service. Very enjoyable day out on the train from the Wirral as part of our Honeymoon celebrations.
