Visited the Habourfront Bistro for some lunch while on a day trip to Anglesey and can happily say we all came away very impressed. The service was efficient, warm, friendly, helpful and sincere - in other words faultless. So many places miss the basics of good service. The food was very good and fresh. The location is amazing, being the... More

An enjoyable family meal in this intimate restaurant. Food was local and fresh ~ cooking takes place in the kitchen at one end of the restaurant. A range of fish and meat choices and some new dishes for us to try. I had chowder which was delicious and the crusted salmon for mains. All enjoyed our meals. Definitely recommended. Staff... More

This is a fabulous place. It doesn't appear to be much outside but the quality of the food is excellent. I would particularly recommend the fish soup with chilli sherry - but be careful not to have too much. The burgers were fab, too.

A most pleasant location overlooking the harbour in pleasant surroundings. Not cheap but tasty food prepared and served by pleasant staff. Ideal for spot for lunch as you can birdwatch and eat at the same time. The only disappointment is chemical pressurised beer not a bar for lovers of real ale.

Enjoyed the grilled hake and chorizo burger for lunch. Restaurant is small inside (on a wet winter's day) but most tables were full, and service was quick and polite. Wasn't expecting anything too flash but the grilled hake on roasted vegetables was absolutely delicious, and serving size was ample.

We were told by our B&B host that it was difficult to find fresh seafood in this harbour town, as most of the catch was shipped off to Asia, but 1 possibility would be The Bistro. He was right, & the sea bass was perfectly prepared & absolutely scrumptious. My husband had lamb, a favorite dish for him, & he... More

We had a Christmas dinner option (set menu) - was a little bit disappointing: starter prawn cocktail was with mustered sauce that did not felt as good combination, and turkey with vegetables was a little bit bland needed some fresher taste, dessert - cheesecake quite big nice and tasty option. Work staff was friendly and welcoming. We will try next... More
