Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We had the harbour front burger - freshly made and very tasty, came with mixed salad, fries and coleslaw. The hosts are lovely people, very welcoming, nothing is too much trouble. Music was great

The Harbour Bistro had been recommended to us and we were really looking forward to our visit but we were SO disappointed. We both ordered creamy garlic mushrooms on crisp ciabatta. It was served in a small cast iron pan which is meant to be...heated thus keeping the food really hot. These had clearly just been taken from the shelf and the mushrooms put straight onto them so, lovely as they were, the creamy garlic mushrooms went cold almost straight away. The crispy piece of ciabatta was just a piece of soggy bread. We then both had their burger. We normally never order a burger when we eat out because you never know what the quality of the minced beef or pork is like but on this occasion, the write up was so good that we decided to try it. Oh dear, big mistake! They were just gristle burgers, absolutely revolting. Just left them on the plates. The waitress said they’d never had any complaints before! Really? Must be just us then! No problem - you vote with your feet don’t you so we won’t be going again and we definitely wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. We’ll stick to The Sea Shanty, The Stores in Trearddur Bay and The Liverpool Arms in Beaumaris.More

Rude staff- family of 5 - had a walk along the front after dinner and thought we’d call in for a drink as lovely location and good reviews on trip advisor. There were a few people inside but plenty of space, however as I walked...in I was given a very unwelcoming look by a staff member- it made me stop in my tracks and ask if we could come in for a drink, the man said something like you’d better be quick like we were a real inconvenience- so unwelcoming, I felt really uncomfortable- how arrogant- could have easily let us sit in and sell us at least 5 drinks and we’d have only stayed a short while - his loss !More

Decided to try this bistro for lunch on a miserable stormy day. It is very nice inside with big windows onto the harbour. The staff are very friendly and the chap serving funny. 🤣 We ordered from the small plates menu. We had the squid,...fish cakes and hot wings with free chips when you buy 3 plates. The squid and fish cakes were delicious and the best I have had for a long time. The chicken wings were also very good. Definitely will be back for an evening meal next time and I bet the view would be fabulous on a different day!More

Had a fantastic meal there after Christmas. The whole menu looked great and we opted for the 'small plates' option-we were not disappointed. Excellent friendly service. the food was delicious and the beer was great. Looking forward to dining there again.

Fabulous lunch!!! This is our absolutely favourite restaurant. The location is just amazing, the staff are helpful, knowledgeable and very, very nice, and the food is completely wonderful. My sister is gluten free and we are both vegetarian, yet we had such a choice of...delicious food, and my sister had the option to make certain dishes GF. Everyone went out of their way to help us. We were so lucky that the sun was out, and the roof on the lovely conservatory area was off, how amazing for the end of October! We live 2.5 hours away, but regularly make the journey to eat here, and explore more of wonderful Anglesey.More
