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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

On arrival no menus to be seen only a specials board,found menus on table so ordered tea/ coffee and a cake lunch.got given a table number..sat down over half a hour later no sign of food? Staff sat around on mobile phones with no regard...to customers..after a long wait we went back to the counter and asked where our food was to be told they hadn't received a order,the lady did apologise but all this coupled with the extortionate prices and paying for parking made it an expensive trip.safe to say I won't be returningMore

Lovely cafe overlooking the sea. Only had a coffee and scone but it was very pleasant and clean in the cafe. The cakes looked delicious but were a bit expensive, however the lunch options seemed cheap 🤔 though we didn’t have the timing right to...try any.More

You need to get there in good time for the specials. However last time we were there for an early lunch, and everything on the list was desirable. Again it was the sausage roll + salad for both of us. Great, as usual. And let's...not forget the fantastic view.More

Really great find, I'd get there early as the homemade scones are amazing and sell quickly. Views are out of this world over the Irish sea and South Stack lighthouse. Very friendly, efficient staff, and knowledgeable, very clean premises

We paid a visit to the RSPB South Stack Café after seeing the South Stack lighthouse on a rainy weekday morning in August. We had parked our car in the adjacent RSPB (pay & display) car park and on a rainy and blustery morning, the...café looked very inviting when returning to our car. The café is fairly large and on the morning of our visit was fairly busy. The café has tables and seating for customers and large picture windows giving good views of the coastline though the weather was closing in and the views were beginning to disappear in the mist. The café also appeared to have outside seating looking out over the cliffs but this was closed for our visit, probably due to the inclement weather. The café is quite large and offers a good range of hot and cold drinks and snacks. Customer toilets are available inside. There is an RSPB shop by the entrance should you wish to purchase any souvenirs of you visit and support this worthy cause.More

We visited the cafe at South Stack after a walk down to the Lighthouse view point. The victoria sponge was delicious and the gluten free/vegan flapjack was also tasty.

We visited twice in the space if a few days, once for cake and coffee and once for a meal at lunchtime. The menu is fairly limited but the service is excellent and the pricing good. There is plenty of inside seating but if the...weather allows outside seating makes this an excellent place for an al fresco lunch. Great views of South Stack lighthouse make this a recommended destinationMore

Called for tea & cake after visiting South Stacks Lighthouse, this café should be re-named 'Dick Turpins' My husband ordered a pot of tea for two and a slice of cake each, which was no bigger than a Mars bar, £14! When my husband queried...the bill, he was told that the slices of cake were £4.40 each, the young lady on the till said ' They are a bit expensive, sorry.' this on top of the £5 car park charge made it two visits in one for us, first & last!More

Beautiful setting looking out to sea. Bright clean café with lovely staff and the coffee cake was delicious. Good spot for walkers or if you just want to sit and soak up the view from indoors or outdoors. So good, we re-visited.

We visit here very often as we live on the lovely island of Anglesey. We've often introduced friends & family to this lovely spot and we always enjoy the food,drinks & views. However on visiting this afternoon, we were very disappointed. The coffees were not...up to usual standard and the cake was very small portion for £4.40!! We understand that prices must increase from time to time, but this is unrealistic pricing. So altogether our little trip for 2 coffees & 1 slice of cake + parking charge, total of £13.70 for half-hour.More
